When thinking of dairy products, most of the time we picture cows grazing in the fields and a farmer milking the cow. The dark side to most dairy products is that many people have hidden sensitivities to cow's milk that is causing inflammation in their body.
So if you don't want to give up dairy, but want to avoid reactions to cow's milk, what are you supposed to do? Interestingly enough, not all dairy products come from cows. In fact, a great substitute for cow milk is to use goat milk.
How is Goat Milk Different Than Cow Milk
Goat milk actually has quite a few differences compared to other milk. For instance, goat milk does not contain the same levels of Alpha s1 Casein that is found in cow milk. This type of casein is highly allergenic, and goat milk has nearly 90% less than cow.
Goat milk is also easier to digest. The milk contains more medium chain triglycerides, which is an easier fat for the body to digest. Studies have also shown that the protein in goat milk digests much more smoothly than that of cow milk.
In this episode, Joe Stout and I talk a lot more about how goat milk can be used as a substitute for cow milk:
