FAQ Category: Goat's milk

Goat's milk is naturally easy to digest due to its typical composition of proteins and fats.

Goat's milk protein forms fast-digesting substances in the stomach, due to the relatively low amount of αs1-casein. This softer material allows the goat's milk protein to pass through the stomach and intestines in a gentle manner that reduces digestive problems.

In addition, goat's milk contains a relatively high amount of short and medium chain fatty acids. These acids are easily broken down by digestive enzymes and are therefore rapidly absorbed. The globules of fat in raw goat milk are smaller and therefore also easier to break down.

    In addition to being easily digestible, goat's milk is also known to be high in nutrients, low in αs1-casein and beta-lactoglobulin (which can contribute to allergic reactions), and for its mild taste. Eating goat's milk also contributes to reducing phlegm in many people.

    Yes sure. There are several scientific studies* that prove that goat's milk products are safe for young children, as long as the product is fortified to meet their nutritional needs (as is the case with Kabrita). The same principle applies to an infant product based on cow's milk as well.

    Goat milk naturally contains a number of unique qualities (easy to digest, rich in nutrients and mild taste) that make it an excellent source of nutrition for infants. Like milk from other mammals, raw goat's milk also contains deficiencies in some nutrients important for the development of your young, such as folic acid. This deficiency has been compensated for in Kabrita products to optimum levels, to ensure that your little ones get exactly the nutrients they need (the same happens with cow's milk nutrition products).

    * These scientific studies have been confirmed very extensively by the European Food Safety Authority and have led to an amendment of European directives for the approval of goat's milk as a source of protein for feeding infants.
