Drinking goat’s milk can be a healthier option for those who can't tolerate cow's milk. Goat milk can be gentler on the digestive system than cow’s milk due to it having fewer allergenic proteins and therefore causing less irritation and inflammation. Goat milk can be easier to digest because the fat globules in goat milk are smaller, making it easier for your body to digest. Goat milk is also lower in lactose than cow milk.
Most people who are intolerant of cow milk are sensitive to one of the proteins found in it, A1 casein, and lack the ability to digest A1. Cow milk is the number one allergy among children and can persist throughout adulthood. Primarily because it contains more than 20 different allergens (including A1 casein) that can cause allergic reactions. These reactions are often confused for seasonal allergy symptoms which can range from hives and runny noses to abdominal cramping and colic in babies.
Goat milk contains only A2 casein, making it the closest milk to human breast milk. Goat milk baby formula can often be a better choice for infants suspected of having dairy intolerance. Goat milk formula for infants and goat milk for babies is readily available in Australia. Mr Vitamins stocks Bubs goat milk products and Holle goat milk formula for infants and babies. If you are wanting a premium, multi-purpose goat milk powder then Caprilac is our recommendation.
