Approved Ingredient Substitutions

The homemade Goat Milk Formula recipe is an excellent, low-allergy, easy to digest formula you can make at home. Because there are several advantages to making your own formula you may find that certain ingredients work better in your situation than others. Due to the flexibility of this recipe, you are no longer “stuck” with the manufacturers ingredients. While we don’t recommend changing the formula unless you are “sure” there is a problem ingredient, here are some of the “approved” substitutions for the homemade goat milk formula. We will be continually updating this data as new ingredients are tested and approved.
