Supporting your baby's milestones with a few of our own
Our research into understanding babies’ development and the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong has helped us become pioneers in infant nutrition.
Read through our other milestones to learn what we’ve achieved over the last 90 years.
Dr Henry Gerstenberger starts his work on developing a nutritious formula milk for babies
Results of clinical trials are published, patents are applied for and SMA® formula is licensed to be sold – SMA® the company is born.
SMA® arrives in the UK
Carotene is added to the formula. This is a source of vitamin A for babies
We add more vitamins – niacin to help babies metabolise carbohydrates and fat, vitamin C for their immune system and vitamin D to help with their growth and the development of their bones
We add vitamin E and vitamin B12 – E to help protect cell structure and maintain cell membranes, B12 for making healthy red blood cells
A whey dominant formula is created – the first ever and 20 years ahead of the competition
SMA® is now made in Ireland
To help premature babies, preterm formula is launched for hospital use
We add SMA® Progress Milk to our range – this is a follow-on milk for older babies
Another first – we fortify SMA® with levels of nucleotides. Nucleotides are the building blocks of DNA
Leading the way again, we introduce the first whey dominant, lactose-free formula. We also introduce a breast milk fortifier for preterm babies
We fortify SMA® Gold formula with long chain polyunsaturates omega 3 and 6 (DHA and AA) because these nutrients were found in breast milk
We launched the first infant milk enriched with bovine alpha-lactalbumin, which is from cows’ milk but it is similar to the breast milk alpha-lactalbumin protein
We launched our Post Discharge Formula to complement our preterm range. We also updated our preterm formula based on the latest expert findings
We launch SMA® Comfort – a milk with less lactose and partly digested proteins that are designed to be easier to digest for babies with minor feeding problems
Another first, we launch SMA® H.A. – a hypoallergenic infant milk designed to reduce the risk of developing eczema in babies with a family history of allergy
We launch SMA® Gold Prem Pro, an alternative formula for feeding babies weighing less than 1.8kg
SMA® PRO is born – inspired by 50 years of protein research by SMA® Nutrition. These are some of our most advanced formulas yet, inspired by the specific nutritional needs of babies. For example, SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk is made using our Exclusive Protein Process†
†made with SMA® Nutrition’s unique protein technology
