Why Goat Milk?
In addition to being the most commonly consumed milk globally, goat milk offers a whole host of benefits – particularly for children.
Naturally easy to digest protein
Goat milk proteins are smaller than cow milk proteins and form a softer curd, similar to breast milk, when digested. As a result goat milk moves through the body at about the same rate as breast milk, resulting in less digestive discomfort sometimes caused by the 'churn' of breaking down larger proteins.
May reduce colic, eczema, constipation and more
Minimizing digestive churn has other significant benefits. A healthy digestive system prevents the development of other symptoms commonly associated with cow milk sensitivity. When the digestive system has been challenged too often it can lead to a condition referred to as 'leaky gut syndrome'.
Leaky gut, as the name suggests, is caused by damage to the gut lining which creates tiny openings that allow proteins that would normally be digested and used for energy to pass into the blood stream, often stimulating an allergy or sensitivity. Choosing goat milk may help prevent leaky gut from occurring, and the symptoms such as colic, eczema and constipation that often accompany it.
Until around six months of age babies have immature digestive systems - or naturally leaky guts.
Goat milk fat is also easy to digest
Goat milk fat is smaller than cow milk fat and contains twice as many easier to digest short-chain fatty acids compared to cow milk. The smaller size of the fat contributes to the gentle digestive process and the prevention of leaky gut. In the US, infant and toddler formula is required to replace animal fat with vegetable fat. KABRITA Toddler Formula is the only formula in the US using OPO fat, an adapted fat blend patterned after breast milk. OPO is proven to contribute to ease of digestion and better nutrient absorption. KABRITA Goat Milk Yogurt and Fruit contains full-fat goat milk.
