When your baby becomes a toddler, the NUK First Choice System ensures a smooth transition from mother's breast or bottle to independent drinking. The NUK First Choice silicone spout is equipped with the NUK Air System. It prevents a vacuum from developing in the bottle when sucking and thus reduces infant colic and harmful air swallowing. Silicone is a largely rubber-elastic material of particular softness, extremely temperature-resistant and tasteless.

The improved Anti-Colic Air System provides a natural food flow - so your baby can drink relaxed without swallowing air.
It is free of harmful substances, boil-proof, odourless, transparent and has a smooth surface - all the advantages that are important for a vacuum cleaner.

All information about the BPA-free range from NUK
Our quality standards are reflected in the uncompromising selection of raw materials, in product safety, environmental compatibility and in permanent quality control. Adapted to its own investigations and scientific findings, NUK regularly optimises its product range. For this reason, the use of polycarbonate (PC) containing BPA was avoided well before the legal ban on our bottle production. What you need to know about this topic can be found here.
What is BPA?
The abbreviation BPA stands for Bisphenol A. BPA is an ingredient of the plastic polycarbonate (PC), which we use daily, e.g. in handling plastic bags, food packaging, but also mobile phones, CDs and sunglasses, adhesives and nail polish.
Why did BPA come under fire?
While until the turn of the millennium BPA was used largely unnoticed in the production of the plastic PC, since the 2000s a discussion began among physicians and scientists about the effects of BPA on living organisms. The study situation was not uniform and was therefore assessed very contradictorily in different countries and by different institutes. A public debate took up the critical assessments and made BPA a much discussed topic in the media.
As a market leader who has received many awards for its quality products, NUK has many years of experience with baby bottles made of BPA-free materials such as glass or polypropylene (PP). By completely abandoning BPA, NUK gave the parents a bit of security back early on. On 1 June 2011, the ban on the production and distribution of baby articles containing BPA in the EU came into force. Long before the EU's demand, NUK did not use polycarbonate bottles containing BPA and was therefore able to label its baby products as "BPA free" years before the final ban.
How do the authorities assess the dangers of BPA?
Competent authorities such as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) or the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) comment on BPA on their websites:
What are the BPA-free drinking bottles made of?
The product range for alternatives without BPA is wide. Here we explain which materials are behind it in detail:
NUK also uses one of the oldest materials known to mankind for the production of baby bottles. Glass is particularly hygienic and temperature-resistant. NUK exclusively uses borosilicate glass, which hardly wears off due to its cross-linked surface structure and withstands temperature fluctuations.
Polypropylene is a translucent plastic used by NUK to manufacture BPA-free baby bottles. Its smooth surface provides a pleasant feel. It is particularly break-proof and is even suitable for freezing.
Polyamide is a plastic with a highly transparent appearance, which it retains through chemical resistance - discoloration and turbidity therefore do not occur. Polyamide is BPA-free, but not suitable for microwave ovens.
Polyphenylsulfone is the most shatterproof plastic among the alternative materials. It is extremely temperature resistant and very suitable for steam and microwave sterilization. Its scratch resistance makes it extremely hygienic, but the highly transparent structure has a slight yellow tinge.
