Goat Milk or Cow Milk

Why goat milk over cow’s milk?

The molecules in goat’s milk are closest to the molecules in human (cow’s milk has larger fat globules and these separate and to the surface, so the milk has to be homogenized – means to make even the components – in this case, usually treated to heat so that the the milk is of a molecular size that humans can digest).

I’ve been told, raw milk is the best.  Well, animals don’t drink treated milk, that’s something to think about.

“Milk, goat

Delicious with a slightly sweet and sometimes salty undertone, goat’s milk is the milk of choice in most of the world. Although not popular in the United States, it can be found in markets and health foods stores throughout the year.

Unlike cow’s milk there is no need to homogenize goat’s milk. While the fat globules in cow’s milk tend to separate to the surface, the globules in goat’s milk are much smaller and will remain suspended in solution. When individuals have sensitivity to cow’s milk, goat’s milk can sometimes be used as an alternative.
