Goat dairy products are incredibly tasty and go well with a wide variety of foods. In addition, they have been endorsed by many doctors as a healthy alternative to cow dairy products.
In a special on goat dairy products on Oprah, Dr. Oz stated:
“Many Sardinians also drink goat’s milk, which is high in calcium and good for your heart. “Plus, researchers believe it could protect against Alzheimer’s and heart disease,”
“Not only is goat’s milk healthy, it’s easier for your stomach to digest and is also good for people who are lactose intolerant. “It has tryptophan, that same sort of mellowing agent that turkey has,” Dr. Oz says. “The fat particles in goat milk are much smaller than in cow milk, so you don’t have to mix it up. (homogenize the milk) And when you mix up fat globules, (as in cow milk) in some people it makes enzymes that irritate your stomach.”
Goat's milk has been proven to be higher in protein, potassium, calcium and magnesium, which is why so many have started to embrace it as a health conscious option.Many also attribute the metabolic breakdown of goat milk as being a much closer fit to what we need as human beings. This allows many with lactose intolerance to embrace goat milk products as a tasty and healthy part of their everyday diet.
