Frequently Asked Questions

What is it made of? Can it replace any other follow-on formula?

I’m considering using a formula for my baby, how do I choose which formula and how do I transition from another formula to the Else formula.

Breast milk is the gold standard for baby feeding. However, if you are considering giving your baby a formula and thinking which one is right, there are many things to consider. Itis advised to first speak with your healthcare professional before switching to formula, and they will advise which one to choose. When trying a different formula, it is recommended to introduce it gradually to allow the tiny tummies to adjust. If you are looking for plant-based options and consider using Else we are happy to assist with any question, email us at

What makes Else special?

Full of goodness, with no added “nasties” like corn syrup solids, artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or GMOs, making it a real whole food, plant-based alternative to support healthy growth and development.

Should I test my child for allergies before I give this to them?

Whilst almonds are one of the foods allergens, it has a lower prevalence of allergy compared to cows milk or soy. Recent research has shown that early allergen introduction may reduce the risk for allergy among young infants. Else follow-on formula can be an appropriate form of early introduction. However, we always recommend discussing with your primary health care provider first, especially if baby is high allergy risk.
