Ingredients | Baby food Bibikol


As you know, the nature of a child's nutrition in the nine months that he is in the womb, and the first couple of years of life, programs and forms the state of health for the rest of his life. What the baby eats during this period of development is no less important than genetic prerequisites.

It is unlikely that anyone will argue that the "gold standard" of nutrition in infancy is breast milk. The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding until six months of age and, if possible, continued breastfeeding with complementary foods until two years of age. However, sometimes this is not possible for objective medical or social reasons. Then the pediatrician transfers the child to mixed or artificial feeding. And here the problem immediately arises - how to choose the most suitable breast milk substitute. nine0007

Infant formula should be as close as possible to it not only in its chemical composition, but also in the presence of important functional components.

Recently, one of the most promising areas in the creation of food products for young children is the use of whole goat milk. Throughout the history of mankind, it has been highly valued for its special dietary and even medicinal properties. This is confirmed by numerous studies conducted both in our country and abroad. nine0007

It is known that the milk of different breeds of goats, moreover, living in different climatic conditions, is very different in composition. That is why, for example, the company "BIBIKOL" - a leader in the production of baby food based on whole goat milk - turned its attention to New Zealand with its mild climate and a network of farms practicing organic farming and animal husbandry. A special breed of New Zealand goats has the opportunity to eat fresh grass all year round, which, of course, has a positive effect on the properties of milk. In addition, the genetic trait of these goats is that their milk contains low levels of the highly allergenic milk protein alpha-S1-casein. The protein of this goat milk has a high biological value. nine0007

BIBIKOL has organized on-site production of adapted NANNY mixtures in New Zealand. From the milking process to the packaging of the finished mixture, no more than eight hours pass. Thanks to a special technology, NANNY manages to preserve the unique nutritional and functional components of natural whole goat milk and bring the mixtures as close as possible to breast milk. NANNIE formulas retain milk fat, so there is no need to add palm oil as a source of palmitic acid. nine0007

As a source of beneficial ω-3- and ω-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, NANNIE is supplemented with marine fish oil and a blend of high quality vegetable oils.
The carbohydrate component in the "NANNIE" mixture is represented by milk sugar - lactose, which provides energy for the rapidly growing body of the child and improves the absorption of calcium. The NANNIE 1.2 mixture contains a complex of vegetable prebiotics Orafti®Synergy1, which has a pronounced positive effect on the functioning of the child's intestines, comparable to the effect of breast milk. nine0007

In addition to dry mixes, "BIBIKOL" produces "BIBIKASHI" with organic cereals and fruit and vegetable purees with cottage cheese, also based on goat's milk, and "AMALTEYA" powdered milk for pregnant and lactating women.

"BIBIKOL" is generally an active promoter of the idea of ​​"organic farming", when synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators, synthetic feed additives and hormones, genetically modified organisms and nanotechnologies are not used to grow vegetables and fruits. Because the company's specialists are confident in the positive impact of organic farming products on the health of children, including those with allergies. nine0007

The company has a special scientific department, which employs doctors and candidates of medical sciences, experienced lecturers and teachers. Since the use of whole goat milk in food products for children and pregnant women is still quite new, there is not only a lot of research to be done, but also explanatory work to be done. Both among pediatricians and among parents. For example, since 2000, the "School of Moms BIBIKOL" has been operating.

Natural benefits of whole grains

One of the first types of complementary foods are foods with a high energy density. Among the entire range of complementary foods, such requirements are met by cereals of industrial production, which contain all the minerals and vitamins necessary for a child at this age. It is cereals that are one of the main sources of carbohydrates, the energy of which is necessary for the child due to intensive growth and increased physical activity. Cereals are diverse in the quantitative content of vegetable proteins, fats, dietary fiber, iron, selenium, B vitamins.

It is important to note that in the leading Western countries, baby food products, including cereals, are subjected to thorough inspection and control. Rigid quality control is carried out according to various parameters. One of the most important microbiological - the finished product is tested for the presence of pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Chemical analysis determines the content of pesticides, toxic elements (cadmium, lead, mercury, etc.), which may be contaminated grain. In addition, the product is tested for the presence of mycotoxins and genetically modified components. Particular attention is paid to determining the content of basic nutrients (proteins, fats, carbohydrates), vitamins, in particular group B, in a cereal product. nine0007

In the production of most baby cereals, flour of the highest grade is used, which is obtained from refined grain, that is, grain without shells. "Cleaning" the grain is necessary in order to avoid contamination of the final product with harmful components used in the cultivation of cereal crops (fertilizers, pesticides, etc. ).

Refined flour has a high nutritional value, but is devoid of most of the biologically active components, vitamins and fiber. Therefore, cereals obtained from refined flour are artificially enriched with vitamins, microelements and prebiotic factors. nine0007

Whole grain flour is of particular interest because it does not need to be fortified with beneficial nutrients. Whole grain cereals are made using all parts of the grain: endosperm, germ and shells, which are processed into fine flour.

Endosperm is the part of the grain that remains after cleaning. The endosperm contains mainly starch, in addition, it contains the bulk of grain protein (85%) and sugars (80%), a small amount of fat (25%). Starch is the most important carbohydrate in plants, nourishing germ is a small formation in which all the strength and power of the future plant is concentrated. The germ contains healthy proteins, fats, vitamins and micronutrients. Outside, the grain is covered with a dense protective shell , which protects the grain from damage and consists of 75% fiber. Between the shell and the endosperm is located aleurone layer , rich in fats - also necessary for the development of the embryo. Of the mineral substances, the shell, aleurone layer and germ contain mainly phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. The amount of mineral substances in the grain varies widely and depends on the soil, climate, applied fertilizers, variety and type of plant. Whole grain contains in its composition almost all the vitamins necessary for a person, both water-soluble (vitamins of the B group - thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, niacin, biotin, ascorbic acid), and fat-soluble (vitamins D, E and carotenoids). nine0007

Thus, cereals made from whole grains have a high biological value, as they contain more essential nutrients, vitamins, macro- and micronutrients than products made from refined grains.

The main distinguishing feature of whole grain cereals is that they are a source of fiber, which has many beneficial properties. Fiber, or dietary fiber, enhances the activity of the intestines, contributing to its proper emptying and preventing constipation. Having the property of an adsorbent, fiber cleanses the gastrointestinal tract from harmful products that form in the intestines or come with food. In addition, fiber creates conditions in the intestines for the development of “good” microflora, that is, it has a prebiotic effect, which means it can prevent the development of pathogens in the intestines. nine0007

Only the organic method of production, that is, using special conditions and methods that are followed literally - from field to shelf, allows you to achieve the highest quality whole grain products for baby food. According to the legislation of the European Union, in order to receive the ORGANIC certificate, products must meet a number of requirements. For example, in organic farms, unlike traditional agriculture, the use of genetically modified seeds and chemical fertilizers is prohibited. In organic agriculture, the use of only natural fertilizers, the use of manual labor for weeding and harvesting plants, as well as special devices for pest control of agricultural crops - traps, ultrasound, birds and insects are allowed. nine0007

In the production of organic products, chemical preservatives, synthetic colors and flavors, as well as taste improvers are not used, only natural preservatives (for example, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar), unrefined sugar, salt, vegetable oils are used instead; natural dyes from the juice of berries, vegetables and fruits; only natural thickeners (for example, apple pectin).

Pasteurization, freezing or boiling allowed.

Special packaging requirements for ORGANIC products are observed. Permitted packaging paper, glass, tin, bioplastic. Plastic packaging is prohibited. The organic method of production eliminates the impact of adverse factors on both raw materials and the finished product. nine0007

Fleur Alpine Baby Whole Grain Cereals are made from selected organic raw materials in compliance with all the requirements of organic agriculture. Porridge recipes were originally developed in accordance with European legislation, meet the Common Sanitary Requirements of the Eurasian Economic Community and have the appropriate marking in the form of a "euro sheet" on the packaging. Thus, Fleur Alpine cereals do not contain artificial stabilizers, preservatives, dyes, flavors, genetically modified components. The Fleur Alpine cereal line includes buckwheat, rice, wheat (spelt) and oatmeal porridges, which are made entirely from whole grains, i.e. with the preservation of the biological value of the shell and germ of the grain, where the maximum amount of nutrients is concentrated, as well as corn porridge. In the production of corn porridge for baby food, as a rule, due to the increased content of mycotoxins (toxins formed by microscopic mold fungi) in comparison with other cereals in the shell of corn, whole grains are not used. For this reason, Fleur Alpine ORGANIC corn porridge is made from dehulled corn kernels and is enriched with prebiotics - fructooligosaccharides, which promote healthy intestinal microflora, good digestion and strengthening of the immune system. nine0007

Fleur Alpine porridges are made without added milk, which is ideal for use as a first food. Dairy-free porridge is recommended to be diluted with breast milk or infant formula that the child receives. Dairy-free cereals are also suitable for children with food allergies to cow's milk protein and lactase deficiency.

The Fleur Alpine cereal range includes both gluten-free (rice, buckwheat, corn) and gluten-containing (oatmeal and wheat) cereals. Grain-based complementary foods should start with gluten-free cereals - rice, buckwheat, and a little later - corn. Rice porridge does not contain gluten, it has the lowest natural fiber content and the highest amount of starch. Therefore, rice porridge has an enveloping effect on the gastrointestinal tract and is recommended for children with a tendency to spit up and unstable stools. Buckwheat porridge has the highest nutritional value. Due to the content of lipotropic factors, the use of buckwheat porridge contributes to the proper metabolism of fats in the body, so buckwheat porridge must be included in the diet for biliary tract dysfunctions and liver diseases. nine0007

Previously, it was believed that the intake of gluten in the body of a child under one year of age can contribute to the development of celiac disease. Celiac disease is a hereditary disease in which the use of cereal protein - gluten, affects the villi of the small intestine. The mechanism of development of this disease is not completely clear. But as a result, the absorption of all substances is disrupted and a diverse clinical picture develops. According to modern concepts, gluten-containing products should be introduced into the diet of a child aged 4-6 months in doses, for example, 2 times a week. It is at this age that a corridor of tolerance (that is, a decrease in susceptibility) to gluten is formed. nine0007

Of the Fleur Alpine whole grain gluten-free cereals, oatmeal has the highest content of healthy vegetable protein and fat. Wheat (spelt) porridge> Fleur Alpine deserves special attention. On the one hand, wheat porridge has the same high content of protein and dietary fiber as oatmeal, on the other hand, it has the lowest fat content, like rice porridge.
