Don't forget the fibre!
Goats’ milk is a great product, packed with protein, energy and calcium, and a convenient and tasty alternative to unhealthy fizzy drinks or other sugar laden snacks for kids.
But like all milk, goats’ milk has no fiber, which is an important part of a healthy diet.
Public health guidelines advise people to eat between 20 and 30 grams of fiber a day, but most adults don't eat even half that much.
This isn't surprising, since fiber refers to the indigestible portion of plant foods, and with our modern diet of highly refined foods, healthy fiber is often processed right out.
Unless you regularly eat whole fruits and vegetables, nuts, and seeds, you may be missing out on the healthiest forms of fiber available – and that could be a problem.
So to make goat milk even better, we have added FOS (Fructo-Oligosaccharides) to our Family Milk Drink.
FOS is a dietary fibre extracted from fruit and vegetables. It is a prebiotic that has been shown to improve calcium absorption, promote growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine and improve overall gastrointestinal health.
Children are notoriously shy of high fiber foods, and you may sometimes have trouble getting your little ones to eat their green vegetables…
Each serve of Family Milk Drink contains 3.8g of dietary fibre, equivalent to the fibre of almost 2 cups of raw broccoli! And the added fibre in our Family Milk Drink will help reduce constipation and promote healthy bowel function.
