Our goat's milk

High-quality food containing many important vitamins and minerals

Goat’s milk was already known in ancient times for its health properties. The Greek doctor Hippocrates lauded it as an elixir of life. By the 16th century its ingredients were considered to have health benefits. That it is easily digested has long been known. This is why many patients with digestive problems reach for this light and easily digestible milk.

It is said that goat’s milk has further healing properties. It can allegedly promote concentration, strengthen the nerves, help against diseases of the lungs, strengthen the immune system, help treat skin conditions and improve blood flow in the skin, reducing the effect of wrinkles. Queen Cleopatra of Egypt even bathed in goat’s milk to keep her skin in good condition.

When drinking goat’s milk, you will notice a slight sweetness in the taste. The high concentration of capric acid is one of things that gives the milk its typical flavour.

Fewer allergenic proteins Proteins are indispensable for the growth and development as well as the regeneration of our body. As different as our dietary habits may be, milk is an important source of nutrients from birth. It is therefore only natural that we develop a special relationship with milk. If we begin to experience an intolerance for milk, then this relationship is really put to the test. Lactose is often the cause of this intolerance. Studies show that intolerances can also be caused by proteins. Our Swiss goat’s milk can therefore be a great alternative for the diets of many people. Important: If you are diagnosed with an intolerance, goat’s milk is not always the best replacement for cow’s milk products. A few proteins found in goat’s milk have strong similarities with cow milk proteins. Reactions are therefore possible – always consult an allergy specialist. Better fat and protein digestion While the fat content of goat’s milk is similar to that of cow’s milk, the fat particles in goat’s milk are much smaller. The protein composition of goat’s milk also allows soft, easily digestible doughs to be made. The combination of these two properties reduces stress on our digestive systems and contributes to our overall wellbeing. Lower lactose content Goat’s milk is not an immediate substitute for people diagnosed as lactose intolerant. Goat’s milk does however typically contain a little less lactose than cow’s milk. Since it is often the quantity of lactose that triggers the intolerance, and since different people experience different levels of tolerance, this may explain why many people can consume goat’s milk without any negative effect on their health.
