For those of you who may not know, my daughter has a milk allergy. It isn’t lactose intolerance, instead a complete dairy allergy. While her reaction isn’t as extreme as some, her reactions do include diarrhea, rash, and mood changes. Our alternative is Goat Milk.
As I was flipping through a chiropractic magazine, I ran across an article about the benefits of goat milk vs. cow milk. Now, we didn’t really give too much thought to our choice of goat milk. Our daughter wouldn’t drink rice or almond milk. And if you didn’t know, 50% of people with a milk allergy will be allergic to soy!!
What I didn’t know was that goat milk is similar to human milk. The “DNA structure has similar constituents to those in human breast milk.” This is an amazing option, especially if your family has food allergies.
The article also states digestion of goat milk is much easier on the digestive tract. This is always a concern with a young child, and even adults as well.
What this article doesn’t tell you is that the fat content is to a much lesser degree in goat milk as well. This is a great cooking alternative when you are watching your caloric intake.
