The Value of Goat Milk

Nutrition: How is goat milk different from cow’s milk?

Goat milk is naturally homogenized and has come to be know as a “superfood”.  It is a source of so many essential nutrients and minerals the body needs to function.  Goat milk has a high source of protein, fat, phosphorus, iodine, vitamin A and calcium.  Fat globules are smaller in goat milk versus cow milk making it one of the main reasons it is easier to digest.  The fat globules are about 2 micrometers versus 21 ½ micrometers in cow milk fat.

Research shows people with health issues  such as constipation, bloatedness, asthma, and digestive discomfort from drinking cows milk are able to drink goat milk without any problems.

Slightly Lower in Lactose

Goats’ milk typically contains less lactose than cows’ milk which explains why lactose intolerant people can drink goats milk instead of cows milk.

Goats’ milk has a significantly lower level of alpha-S1-casein, a highly inflammatory protein.  Goats’milk has 89% less alpha-S1-casein protein than cows milk.  Research indicates this protein is one of the primary reasons people can’t tolerate cows’ milk.

The Benefits of Medium Chain Triglycerides in Goat Milk

Goat milk contains 30-35% more MCT versus cow milk at 20-25%.  MCT’s are medium fatty acid chains that are quick in energy and not stored as fat.  MCT’s have therapeutic benefits for conditions including nutrient malabsorption, diabetes, weight management and more.
