Yes, in an effort to continuously improve our products we have upgraded our classic formula tins to a premium, smooth wall finish. While we have upgraded our packaging, no changes have been made to our formulation. This packaging update does not in any way impact the quality or nutritional value of the formula inside. This new packaging will be seen in the market from May 2024.

We have also upgraded the lids on our Beta Genica-8 tins to a premium softer, matt finish lid. While we have upgraded our packaging, no changes have been made to our formulation. This packaging update does not in any way impact the quality or nutritional value of the formula inside. This update will be seen on Beta Genica-8 products from July 2024.

Yes, the cans are made from aluminium, which is almost endlessly recyclable and is one of the world's most recycled materials. So please, recycle them. Bellamy’s Organic is committed to supporting the practice of recycling and biodegradability.

We encourage you to transition slowly from Step 1 to Step 2 using our Seven-day transition plan.

Day 1: For your baby’s first morning feed, offer one bottle of the new formula. For the remaining feeds for the day, offer the previous formula.

Day 2: Offer the new formula for the first two feeds of the day, then the previous formula for the remaining feeds.

Day 3: Offer the new formula for the first three feeds of the day, then the previous formula for the remaining feeds.

Days 4-7: Continue this method until your baby has fully transitioned across to the new formula, which may take around seven days.

Regular cow milk contains two main types of beta casein protein, A2 protein and A1 protein. Beta Genica-8 uses milk from cows chosen to naturally produce only the A2 protein type and no A1. This is naturally occurring and not created through genetic engineering or other technological processes.

Some people who experience issues drinking regular cow milk may experience benefits when they switch to milk containing only the A2 beta casein protein.
