Many customers ask us for a simple explanation of why goat milk is better for humans than cow milk.
Our answer is very simple, based purely on common sense, and is just my opinion, but….
Goats and humans are virtually identical in size and weight, at birth and as adults.
But cows are 10 times heavier than a human baby at birth, or as an adult!
A goat at birth weighs the same as a human baby, 2.5 - 4.5kg.
Compare that to a calf, which weighs a whopping 32kg! That’s 10 times more than a human baby, and about the same size as a human teenager.
A full grown cow is also about 10 times heavier than an adult human, at around 700-900kg.
Even the English language recognises the similarities between human children and young goats - they are both called kids!
Is it any surprise then that the milk from a mammal that is similar in size to a human would be more suitable for a person, either baby or adult?
Goat milk has a lot of proven benefits over cow milk, which has been shown in many scientific studies. But sometimes, a little bit of common sense can go a long way…..
• Higher vitamins A, B1, riboflavin, calcium, iron, niacin, potassium and phosphorous
• Less cholesterol
• Naturally A2 milk
• Allergies - the levels of Alpha s1 Casein in goat milk is about 89% less than cow’s milk providing a far less allergenic food.
• Naturally homogenised
• Ease of digestion - the smaller fat globules and higher levels of medium chain fatty acids contained in goat’s milk allow for a faster, easier digestion process.
• Lactose intolerance - lactose, or milk sugar, is present in all milk. Goat’s milk contains about 10% less lactose than cow’s milk. This combined with ease of digestion means those who suffer from lactose intolerance can use goat milk with little or no ill effect.
