What is the Demeter standard and why is it important?

December 27, 2018

Most baby formula brands market themselves as organic, healthy, natural and great for your baby’s health — or at least some combination of these. We all want the very best for our babies, of course. So it can be difficult to decide which formula is best. The Demeter standard for biodynamic farming may help you decide. 

Biodynamic Farming

So what exactly is biodynamic farming? It’s basically the gold standard of organic farming methods. To gain a “biodynamic” certification within Demeter standards, a farm has to have all of the following:

  • biodiversity,
  • ecosystem preservation,
  • soil conservation,
  • livestock integration,
  • prohibition of genetically engineered organisms, and
  • and a view of the farm as a living, “holistic organism.”

Basically, this comprehensive list of requirements ensures that the farm grows its crops to the highest standard possible and does so in a way that is sustainable for the environment. The certification must be renewed annually.

So what does this mean for your baby formula choice? When you choose Demeter-certified baby formula, you’re investing in a farm that cares about the future of our world — a world that we want our children to be able to enjoy. Demeter-certified farms use herbal and mineral additives in the soil instead of artificial chemicals. Demeter-certified farms use homeopathic remedies rather than antibiotics. Demeter-certified farms respectfully consider the well-being of the animals they are raising to ensure they are comfortable and able to move freely. Demeter-certified farms adhere to some of the highest standards in the world.

More on Demeter

The Demeter name comes from the Greek goddess of grain and fertility. The Demeter biodynamic certification was founded as a charity in Berlin, Germany in 1927. It is now used in over 50 countries to verify that biodynamic products meet international standards in production and processing. Demeter’s main goal is “Healing the planet through agriculture” — and we’re proud to support this mission. You can find a range of Demeter certified baby formulas available with us including the following collections:

The Demeter certification assures you and your customers that your baby formula comes from a verified biodynamic farming source. We place a high value on this and hope to see more Demeter farming in our future. Choosing Demeter-certified baby formula is the best choice for your baby and for our planet.
