Baby food contains foods and ingredients that are especially suitable for nourishing weaning babies. Legal requirements are comprehensive and particularly strict. Additives such as colourants, flavourings and artificial sweeteners are not allowed. Heavy metal and nitrates are strictly regulated. There should be no trace of pesticides.
The approvals for organic food and baby food are fundamentally separated. Baby food can but does not have to be certified organic, and vice versa: organic food can but does not have to fulfil all the requirements for baby food.
If there is no organic or baby food certification, the product is known as a conventional product. But even these are subject to statutory requirements and reference values.
