Raw Goat Milk
Offers Better Digestion
Raw goat milk seems to offer better digestion to those that have a problem digesting cow's milk.
According to one Journal of Medicine, goat milk is "The Most Complete Food Known".
Digesting milk is sometimes a problem for certain people and one of the main benefits of raw goat milk is that it's more digestible than cow's milk.
Digestion of milk is improved for many people because the protein and fat found in goat's milk are less of a problem than the protein and fat found in cow's milk.
Benefits of Raw Goat Milk
- Contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes,
protein, and fatty acids that are utilized by your body with ease
- Goat's milk is less allergenic - does not contain the complex protein that stimulates allergic reactions found in A1 cow's milk
- Goat milk is easier to digest than cow's milk because its fat contains properties that make it easier to digest
- Contains the healthful medium-chain fatty acids such as capric and caprylic acids which are highly antimicrobial
- It's a rich source of the trace mineral selenium and copper which are necessary nutrients
- Higher amounts of calcium, vitamin A, and the B vitamins compared to cow's milk
- Carefully handled raw goat milk is a living food and comes with all of the good-germ fighting bacteria intact
Raw Goat Milk's Fat
is Easier to Digest
Unlike cow's milk, goat milk does not contain agglutinin and therefore, the fat globules in goat milk do not cluster together which makes it easier to digest.
Its fat molecules are smaller than cow's milk and does not separate. Goat milk is naturally homogenized.
Goat milk has a higher proportion of short-chained and medium-chained fatty acids.
Therefore, goat milk will be easier for your intestinal enzymes to digest.
Raw Goat Milk's Protein
is Less Allergenic
Goat's milk contains only trace amounts of the problematic protein called casein which is found abundantly in cow milk.
The casein that's found in goat's milk is much more similar to human milk. Did you know that goat milk is A2 milk?
Goats, humans, sheep, camels, and A2/A2 cows will all produce A2 milk. And this type of milk creates less problems in your gut.
Goat milk proteins also form a softer curd which makes the protein more easily and rapidly digestible.
Raw goat milk rarely seems to cause lactose intolerance in people because it's more easily digested.
In many parts of the world, goat milk is preferred to cow's milk.
Even in the United States, the goat is gaining popularity again along with raw goat milk.
One of the reasons goats have gained in popularity is that they are much smaller than cows and don't require as
much land to feed them.
Goats also thrive on a different type of diet than cows.
They are less picky about what they eat and can adapt more easily to many different types of environments.
