The Best Organic Baby Formula Brands of 2022


Every new parent wants to give their baby the nutrition they need. With all of the different formulas on the market, it can be difficult to decide which is best for your child. “Choosing a formula is a big decision for families,” says Natasha Burgert, M.D., F.A.A.P., Philips Avent’s pediatrician. The good news is that all formulas must meet federal nutrient requirements, and infant formula manufacturers must notify the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prior to marketing a new formula.

But as concerns grow regarding food sources, chemicals and pesticides, choosing organic is an option for parents who are looking to minimize their baby’s exposure to certain preservatives and additives. Organic baby formulas go a step further than conventional ones as they have to meet additional federal guidelines to get the USDA Organic Stamp, but Dr. Burgert says there may not be a huge nutritional difference between the two.

Regardless of whether you are purchasing organic or non-organic formula, pay attention to the ingredients in whichever option you choose. Some formulas utilize glucose and corn syrup for their carbohydrates as opposed to lactose which is the main carbohydrate source in breast milk. Choosing a formula that is as close to breastmilk as possible or modeled after breastmilk is key, which is why we did the work for you and rounded up the best organic baby formula brands available in the United States. Here are the best organic baby formula brands, according to experts and parents.

Premium Dairy Toddler Formula


This toddler formula is designed for infants 12 to 36 months and meets strict USDA organic regulations. Free from corn syrup, our registered dietitians point out that this formula is actually made from A2 milk, which is known to be easier to digest and has a protein composition more similar to human milk. A parent from our panel praised the formulation, saying that their child tolerated this with no issues.

Baby’s Only Organic Formula ranked highest among all baby formulas tested for purity and nutrition in a study conducted by the Clean Label Project. The brand publicly says that they work to eliminate all toxins as thoroughly as possible from their products. They are committed to routine testing of their ingredients and products for metals like arsenic, lead and mercury, and have made other efforts like finding a separation method that does not require harsh chemical solvents like hexane. Their formulas are made in a dedicated organic infant formula manufacturing facility, too. The brand also sources their milk from organic family farms and is manufactured in the US.

Availability: Baby’s Only is available nationwide in a variety of local natural grocers and primarily in Whole Foods Market. You can also purchase it online at or on Amazon.
