While goat milk has a growing fan base in North America, some people still act sniffy. Maybe they don’t try new things. Maybe they were just born with a lousy palate. Whatever the case, here’s some of what they’re missing:
The fat in goat’s milk is different than that from cows so it’s more digestable. Because the fat globules in goat milk are smaller, they’re more easily absorbed in our systems. Some cow’s milk-intolerant people find they can consume goat’s milk without the ill effects they experienced from cow’s milk.
Goat’s milk is a complete protein with 15% more calcium, higher levels of Vitamins A & D, Potassium, Copper and Manganese than cow’s milk. Goat’s milk also contains essential amino acids. Although it has less folic acid and B12 than cow’s milk, goat-milk drinkers don’t have to concern themselves with hormone additives often found in cow’s milk — even commercial goats aren’t given hormones.
