Gluten Free Baby Porridges from Holle – an Update

Gluten free baby porridges are an important choice for many parents starting to wean their baby. Holle baby food has always had a long history of producing an extensive range of porridges for babies, including a number of gluten free baby porridges for little ones of all ages. The Ulula Holle Weaning Starter Kit and Ulula’s Baby Weaning Starter Porridge Pack are lovely examples for babies and parents just starting out on their weaning journey together.

As you’d expect, Holle’s gluten free baby porridges are all certified organic and produced to the very highest standard. Wherever possible, the grains for the gluten free porridges, along with the rest of the Holle range, are grown to biodynamic farming standards and are Demeter certified.

Holle’s Gluten Free Baby Porridges- Some Temporary Changes

Natural, organically grown products are always subject to variations in the weather. In more difficult years, in which there is a lot of rain or it is extremely dry, the result can be that insufficient quantities of grain are available at the very highest quality standard demanded by Holle. As a result of the extremely poor harvest in 2013 Holle cannot presently offer millet gluten free baby porridge in its usual certified Demeter biodynamic quality, in addition to being organically certified. This is because there are ony limited quantities of the raw grain available due to the increased humidity that Holle’s farmers in the growing areas of Austria and Hungary faced during 2013.

In order to maintain a consistently available supply of gluten free baby porridges for your baby, Holle have decided to temporarily switch over to organically certified millet that is not also Demeter certified. They will also mix the former single grain gluten free baby porridges Millet and Millet Apple & Pear with a small proportion of organic wholegrain rice. See further below for more details.

A Comprehensive Range of Gluten Free Baby Porridges

As a result of these temporary changes Holle are still able to offer a comprehensive assortment of gluten free baby porridges in top quality organic standard. Of course, the labelling, packaging and product descriptions on the Ulula website for all the Holle gluten free baby porridges reflect these changes. We will also keep you informed as soon as future harvests allow for a sufficient quantity of biodynamically grown grains and the gluten free porridges are back as being Demeter certified, in addition to organic.
