Naturally good tasting goat milk products are also good for you. For those with a sensitivity to cow milk, goat milk is an excellent alternative. Goat milk has a higher percentage of short and medium chain fatty acids than cow's milk and is lower in cholesterol and higher in calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and B.

Goat Milk Qualities:

  • Most of the world's population drinks goat milk.

  • Goat milk is more digestible because the fat molecules are a smaller size than those from cow milk - making it easily tolerated by those with compromised digestive systems.

  • Goat milk has less cream separation because of smaller fat molecules.

  • Goat milk contains the precursor to Vitamin A in the milk fat that allows it to be readily available for use by the body.

  • Goat milk is closer to human milk and is more easily accepted especially by those young or frail.

  • Goat milk does not form mucous (phlegm) and is better tolerated by asthmatics and those with allergies.

  • Goat milk contains more chlorine, fluorine, and silicon than any other domestic livestock. Chlorine and fluorine are natural germicides and fluorine assists in preventing diabetes.

  • Goat milk contains 2% curd, which precipitates in the stomach. Cow milk is 10%curd.

  • Goat milk is tolerated by a compromised/damaged liver because of the smaller fat molecules.
