Baaah — Here’s all you need to know about goat milk!

Rich in calcium and essential nutrients, both goat milk and cow milk are vital for your child’s growth, especially during the early years.

As a mum, you’ll most likely embrace breast milk in the early stages of your baby’s life but after that, will you pick goat’s or cow’s milk? What’s the difference anyway?

Why goat’s milk? 

If you are still undecided between the two, fret not as both are equally beneficial and important. But what makes goat’s milk more appealing?

We say that besides the delicious and creamy taste of goat’s milk, it is definitely the high calcium, protein and vitamins in it that make it mum’s choice. Also, since goat’s milk has a different protein profile compared to cow’s milk, it creates softer milk curds that are more digestible, making goat’s milk a friendlier alternative for your kid’s tummy.

Goat’s milk has softer milk curds that are more digestible, making it a friendlier alternative for your kid’s tummy.

How is it different from cow’s milk?

Goat’s milk contains less lactose than cow’s milk and hence might be a suitable alternative for kids who are lactose intolerant. Additionally, if your child is allergic to cow’s milk, he or she may be able to consume goat’s milk as it does not contain the alpha S1 casein protein found in cow’s milk.

Vitamin A found in goat’s milk is also more readily absorbed by the body than that in cow’s milk. Besides this, goat’s milk also has a higher content of Vitamin B2 than cow’s milk, which may help to boost your child’s immune system as it stimulates antibodies.

Is there a difference between fresh goat’s milk and powdered goat’s milk?

Powdered goat’s milk is obtained by spray drying fresh goat milk, and as a result the natural nutritional content remains the same even after the procedure. Powdered goat’s milk formula also contains added nutrients that are great for a growing child.

Powdered goat’s milk is obtained by spray drying fresh goat milk, which retains the natural nutritional content.

Where can I buy goat’s milk in Singapore?

Fresh goat’s milk can be obtained from local goat farms. Orders can be made online and delivered to you – or purchased on site at the farm.

If powdered goat milk suits your needs better, New Zealand brand Karihome‘s goat’s milk is widely available islandwide.
