Other thoughts - goat milk (although you read that isn't a good substitute), sheep and water buffalo milk also contain the healthier casein A-2 protein. Camel milk is lower in lactose and also contains the A2 protein, plus I've heard (no first hand experience) that it is very good for us, although expensive.

It is difficult to find a legit distributor as the product isn't approved for import into the US. The first website I found was a total racket. You had to pay a monthly fee and then that allowed you to make purchases when they opened up orders for their latest shipment. I think I did that once but aggressively searched for better options. I eventually settled on Organic Munchkin which was much more reasonable in price and didn't have inventory shortages back when I was buying formula for my son. I just did a quick search and it looks like they got too big and no longer offer the German formula here in the US.
Here is the product if you want to try to find another site that imports their products: https://organicstart.com/lebenswert/stage-1/product
