Why sheep and goat milk?

„You can't get rid of facts by ignoring it.“


Easier Digestibility

  • Sheep and goat milk contains up to 3 times more of medium-length fatty acids (triglycerides) than cow milk. This stimulates the digestion. Triglycerides are easier for the body to absorb than other fatty acids what makes them peerless.

  • Health of the intestine: Scientific research has shown that sheep and goat milk affects positivly on the intestine's health. This may be specially important to the digestive system of infants which is not yet as strong as ours. The digestive system of babies handles with cow milk products only in a inadequat way. This may lead to stomach ache and colic, which can be the reason of restless children.

Reduction of allergic reactions

Cow milk intolerance or cow milk protein intolerance is the most common food allergy. Cow milk protein intolerance is probably caused by the Apha-s1-casein or whey proteins in cow milk. On the opposite, goat milk and sheep milk proteins are different and propably because of this a good option for children and adults suffering from cow milk protein intolerance.

Symptoms can be different:

  • Digestion: diarrhea, pain, colic, constipation, vomit, poor utilization of nutrients

  • Breathing: runny nose, asthma, cough, whooping cough

  • Skin: eczema, rash, dermatitis

  • Other symptoms: migraine and headaches, lack of well-being

Infants and young children seem to be more susceptible to this allergy. Although some of them may outgrow the allergy, in many cases it also remains the whole life.

Goat Milk

  • Smaller fat globules: Goat milk has smaller fat globules than cow milk, so they are easier to disassemble by enzymes, which facilitates the digestion

  • Low level of alpha-s1-casein: Compared to cow milk, goat milk has only a low content of alpha-s1-casein. This casein is not only known as an allergen, but is mainly responsible for the fact, that cow milk is harder to digest than goat milk.
