Kabrita USA, a division of Ausnutria, announced that its Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula (0-12 months) meets all the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) nutrition and safety requirements and is authorized to market in the United States.

The goat milk is expected to be available in the U.S. later this year.

"While breast milk is considered the optimum food for babies, we strongly believe parents supplementing or substituting with infant formula should have an option that can deliver similar benefits as breast milk during a critical period of growth and development," said Jacqueline Lipiec, general manager, Kabrita USA.  

Kabrita already available in 35 countries around the world. The FDA authorization of Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula expands the Kabrita brand in the United States; Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Toddler Formula has been available in the U.S. market since 2014.
