Liver-Based Formula

Great recipe for babies who cannot tolerate cow's milk and casein.

Makes about 36 ounces

It is extremely important to include coconut oil in this formula as it is the only ingredient that provides the special medium-chain saturated fats found in mother's milk. As with the milk-based formula, all oils should be truly expeller-expressed.

3 3/4 cups homemade beef or chicken broth
 2 ounces organic liver, cut into small pieces
 5 tablespoons lactose
 1 teaspoon bifidobacterium infantis
 1/4 cup homemade liquid whey (See recipe for whey)  (When seriously casein sensitive, eliminate whey.  It has very important properties.  Keep it in if you can.)
 1 tablespoon coconut oil
 1 teaspoon cod liver oil or 1/2 teaspoon high-vitamin cod liver oil
 1 teaspoon unrefined sunflower oil
 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
 1 teaspoon acerola powder

Simmer liver gently in broth until the meat is cooked through. Liquefy using a handheld blender or in a food processor. When the liver broth has cooled, stir in remaining ingredients. Store in a very clean glass or stainless steel container. To serve, stir formula well and pour 6 to 8 ounces in a very clean glass bottle. Attach a clean nipple and set in a pan of simmering water until formula is warm but not hot to the touch, shake well and feed to baby. (Never heat formula in a microwave oven!)
