Why was Nutrico created?
When we were searching for infant formula for our babies, we couldn’t find a formula that was made from 100% Australian milk powder, with a comprehensive nutritional profile close to breast milk, and without artificial sweeteners (such as Maltodextrin & Corn Syrup Solids), colours and flavours (such as vanilla flavouring). We wanted the best for our son and daughter, and we thought other parents would too, so we created it and Nutrico was born!
What is the difference between Infant Formula and Follow-On formula?
The main difference is the balance of milk proteins. Breast milk consists of approximately 60% whey protein and 40% casein protein. This is the balance of protein in Nutrico Optimum Infant formula. This balance changes with Nutrico Optimum Follow-On formula as babies are slowly weaned off breast milk, and onto some solid foods.
What’s in baby formula?
Baby formula is a mix of skim milk powder, whey protein, lactose, essential fatty acids and essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The Nutrico range of optimum formulas always uses 100% Australian milk powder, unlike other brands.
Is your product made and packaged in Australia?
Yes. Nutrico is made and packaged in Melbourne, Australia.
Is Nutrico Australian owned?
Yes, 100% Australian owned.
Do your formulas contain DRA and ARA?
Yes, stages 1 and 2 both contain DHA and ARA, more commonly called Omega 3 and Omega 6, and stage 3 contains DHA. These long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, found in fat in breast milk, has an important role in neural developement and the structure and function of neural tissues, most notably the retina and brain.
Do your formulas contain FOS and GOS?
Yes, stages 1, 2 and 3 all contain both FOS (fructooligosaccharides) and GOS (galactooligosaccharides). FOS and GOS are prebiotics which promote beneficial intestinal bacteria, improve mineral absorption and reduce constipation.
Do your formulas contain nucleotides?
Do your formulas contain nucleotides? Yes, Stage 1 and 2 contain nucleotides. Nucleotides are an important addition as study results demonstrate that nucleotide supplementation leads to increased weight gain and head growth in formula fed infants.

I’ve heard that that are examples of tampering, and counterfeiting in regard to infant formula. How does Nutrico prevent this?
Nutrico takes tampering and counterfeiting extremely seriously. This is why we have developed a tamper-proof lid (which also contains the scoop resulting in less mess), and a unique QR code on the base of every tin. By scanning the QR code with any smartphone, you will instantly know if the tin is a genuine Nutrico product. You will also receive information such as the batch number, the manufacture date and the expiry date.
