Why Goat's Milk?


Whenever someone asks me what they can do to improve their nutrition, I almost always answer that they should try new foods, and try to introduce as much variety into their diet as possible. If I'm pushed for an example, I always say "Goat's Milk".

Usually, I get some funny faces, followed by "Why goat's milk?"

Why Goat's Milk?

Well, firstly, because most of us have been drinking cow's milk since the age of two. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against cow's milk per Se, except that for many of us, this means we have been drinking it for more than a couple decades! So switching it up for a change may not be a bad idea.

Aside from the novelty, here are a couple more reasons that goat's milk deserves a fair test...

Goat's milk is the milk of choice in most of the world.

Because the protein in goat's milk has a different make-up than the protein in cow's milk, many people with cow milk allergies can tolerate drinking goat's milk .

Compared to cow's milk, goat's milk has similar amounts of protein, fat, iron, vitamin C and vitamin D. Goat milk has more natural vitamin A, more vitamin B , and less lactose.

Unlike cow's milk there is no need to homogenize goat's milk. While the fat globules in cow's milk tend to separate to the surface, the globules in goat's milk are much smaller and will remain suspended in solution.

So give goat's milk a try. I'm not claiming that goat's milk is some miracle food, but rather that it's a tasty drink with health benefits that many people are missing out on.
