When we say milk, we normally allot it to the one that actually comes from cows but there are actually different kinds of milk due to different sources such as ; soy milk from soy beans, coco milk from coconut, ewe’s milk from sheep and also goat or doe milk which comes from goats. Every mammal is capable of producing milk as food for their young, but only certain animals are domesticated for their milk for human consumption which includes goat, sheep and cow. Goat’s milk supply only 2% of the world’s total annual milk supply. Cow’s milk being the most widely consumed, has been allotted by some doctors as a reason for indigestion and bloating (due to gas formation) among people.
As compared to the cow’s milk, the goat’s milk have small, well-emulsified fat globules which are suspended in the milk rather than rising on top like in cow. Thus, the goat’s milk no longer needs to undergo homogenization process that can alter the structure of the milk. From there, we can already say that goat is good for drinking in its freshest and most organic form since you can already acquire all the nutrients that are present in the milk without fear of alteration due to processing.
The goats’ milk is rich with iron and copper that is essential for good metabolism. A cup could already supply you of 35% of your overall calcium requirement. It contains selenium that can boost your immune system to fight against different diseases. It is also nourishing for over taxed nervous system that can replenish stressed brain cells when overworked.
Goat’s milk is said to be of the closest structure to that of a human’s milk. But still, more doctors do not actually recommended goat’s milk for infants and babies as an alternative for breast feeding. This is due to the fact that most goats’ milk no are longer processed and is thus prone to contamination from microorganisms that can harm the baby. But in some places, goat’s milk is already used as alternative without any report of adverse effects.
Aside from the fresh milk are other products such as cheese which is known to be of high and healthy quality known as chèvre in France. This is considered one of the healthy cheeses due to its low caloric content. Butter from goats milk is white due to the yellow Beta-carotene in the goat’s milk which turns colorless white if vitamin A after processing. The meat itself is also healthy due to its low fat content. The taste is just similar to the spring lamb meat. Goat’s meat are leaner making it tougher to bite but with proper cooking can give you a healthy and delightful meal.
Adverse reaction is one of the major reasons why goat’s milk, meat and other products are not well-advised to people all over the world. Adverse reaction may occur upon intake especially if the food is new to your system but the body has the ability to adapt to changes that may occur to you. Still if some reaction may occur upon trying, you can always consult your doctor. Trying out new food stuff is good since it helps you discover what will really be efficient for your lifestyle’s needs.
