the kendamil difference
The What? Kendamil is Family owned and European Made
The Why? Whereas all other standard baby formula you'll find aren't independent and are owned by large multinationals, Kendamil is proudly family owned and operated. All of our infant formula is European made nd meets the high standards set for infant formula by both the EU and United States.
The What? Kendamil uniquely uses Whole Milk as a source of fat
The Why? By including Whole Milk as our primary ingredient and a source of fat in our formula, Kendamil has a naturally creamy taste and reduced levels of vegetable oils, which form 100% of the fat content in other formula. It also means Kendamil includes naturally occuring MFGM (Milk Fat Globule Membrane).
The What? Kendamil has NEVER used Palm Oil
The Why? Because of the scientific research linking Palm Oil to the malabsorption of minerals in the gut as well as the negative impacts on the environment, we have NEVER used it in Kendamil (and we have petitioned the UK government to ban it in all formula!)
The What? Kendamil sources Omega 3 from plants!
The Why? By opting to source our Omega 3 (DHA) from sustainably farmed marine algae, we avoid the fish oil allergen found in most formula and also do better for the world by not contributing to overfishing!
The Why? Kendamil is Certified Vegetarian
The Why? By sourcing our Omega 3 from marine algae and avoiding animal rennet in our production process, Kendamil is certified Vegetarian!
The What: Kendamil Formula contains NO corn syrup or maltodextrin
The Why: Breastmilk is the blueprint for our formula and it contains high levels of lactose, which is recognised as being preferable for the intestinal microflora of infants. Maltodextrin or Corn Syrup is often included by other brands as a cheaper substitute for lactose, used to thicken the formula or because they can be easier to work with in manufacturing.
The What: Kendamil Formula contains NO Soya
The Why: Soy lecithin can be sprayed onto the outside of the powder particles after it is produced to improve solubility. Here at Kendamil though, our drier is specially designed to produce ‘agglomerated’ particles which have superior quality meaning Soy is not required. This also means we don't have to include the Soy allergen on our label.

Step 1: Wash hands, then sterilise your feeding utensils according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Step 2: Boil fresh water and let cool for 30 minutes before adding powder. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water. Measure the required water into a sterilised bottle.
Step 3: Using the scoop provided, add the correct number of levelled scoops to the bottle. Use the straight edge inside the lid to level each scoop.
Step 4: Place on a sterilised cap and shake well to dissolve powder. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
Step 5: Cool to a natural body temperature. Always test the temperature of the liquid on your wrist prior to feeding your baby.
For feeding your baby, add 1 level scoop of powder to each 30 ml of water (freshly boiled and cooled). Please refer to the feeding guide shown on the can and note this table should only be used as a guide. All babies are different and may require more or less than is shown. Kendamil First Infant Milk should be fed on demand. If you need more advice talk to your healthcare professional.

Ingredients as good as they are
Frequently asked questions
Your questions answered
Yes, it is.Kendamil is fully compliant with the FDA’s nutritional standards for infant formula (as detailed within[21 CFR 107.100]) and was among the first international suppliers approved by the US administration as part of Operation Fly Formula.
As a company, we have 60 years of heritage behind us and have intentionally been designing products that are suitable for use by families in the USA for several years now. This reflects our commitment not only to the US market but also to help parents in the short term and long term.
Kendamil’s unique whole milk recipe provides a more naturally-derived fat source for your baby and reduces the amount of vegetable oils in our formula (we proudly use no palm oil, fish oil or soya).
Whole milk also uniquely provides your little one a natural source of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (or MFGM), as identified in human breastmilk and uniquely included in Kendamil’s full-cream recipe.
We are proud that no Kendamil products contain palm oil (or fish oil or soya for that matter).
Studies have shown that the consumption of palm oil is linked to the malabsorption of minerals like calcium, leading to lower bone density.
Sadly, palm oil has also been linked to devastating environmental damage, threatening our rainforest and wildlife populations. Choosing Kendamil means saying no to palm oil, for a recipe that is kinder to babies and the world they will inherit.
We generally recommend a transition period of 7-14 days to allow your baby’s digestive system to completely adjust to a new formula, even if you are simply moving to another stage of the same formula brand. Gas, constipation, and fussiness are fairly common reactions to a new formula. Because of this, we recommend introducing the new formula gradually by slowly swapping bottles of the current or “old” formula with Kendamil, starting with the midday feeds first and not the feeds before bed. This schedule can be alternated a bit based on the number of feedings. as some infants will feed for more or fewer feeds than indicated below:
Day 1: Feed 2 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are old formula
Day 2: Feeds 2 & 3 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are old formula
Day 3: Feeds 2, 3, & 4 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are old formula
Day 4: Feeds 1, 2, 3, & 4 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are current old formula
Day 5: All feeds = Kendamil
Number of feedings is based on Kendamil Classic Infant Milk’s suggested feeding frequency in a 24 hour period for infants between 1-5 months of age.
You can switch to the new formula immediately and prepare all the feeds with the new formula on Day 1. Feedback from parents using Kendamil has shown that switching to all Kendamil bottles within 24 hours is feasible. However, for some infants, it might be easier for their digestive system to transition slowly as described above.
We do recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before making any changes to your little one’s diet that you are concerned about.
Our formula is prepared using 1scoop per 1oz of water.
Don’t worry about needing twice the number of tins though as our scoops are half the size of the standard US ones.
As every baby is different, and we suggest following baby’s feeding cues, how much you need will really depend on the feeding demands of your little one.
As an example though, at a rate of 3 to 4 4oz bottles a day a can should last 11 days.
We hope that helps you with your prep and we wish you well in your continued feeding journey.
We do not recommend storing pre-prepared bottles of milk in the fridge, as Kendamil follow the guidelines set down by the Department of Health that feeds are made fresh on demand.
Once the powder has been added to the hot water, the feed will be suitable for use for 2 hours. We would recommend that after this time any leftover product should be discarded.
Kendamil Classic can be found in all Target stores (approximately 1900 sites nationwide) from mid-June 2022 and Kendamil Organic will also be available in a selected number of them too.
