Our bodies can make ARA, but we're not sure if all babies can do it well enough. Breast milk naturally has Omega-6 fatty acids, but the amount depends on what the mom eats. To ensure that infants who are not breastfed also get these fatty acids, ARA is sometimes added to follow-on milk. This in combination with DHA*. However, it is not mandatory to add ARA.
Pure Goat adds ARA and DHA* to the Complete Infant Formula. ARA is added in the form of a vegetable oil, namely Mortierella Alpina. This way, it supports your baby in the development of brain and vision, among other things.
*As is regulated by law for all follow-on formula
