Goatie Goodness – the better choice

When choosing milk, it’s not just a matter of full cream, low-fat or flavoured anymore. Sometimes an alternative is needed. But not all milks are created equal.  Here’s a five-point checklist of what to look for and why Goat milk could be the ‘right’ milk choice for you and your family. 

Fat size

Young children should drink full cream milk since they need the fat for proper development of their brains and nervous systems.  Goat milk is a full cream milk and is naturally homogenized, meaning the fat molecules are naturally smaller and more easily digested. 

Protein Structure

Milk is also a great source of high-quality protein.  Protein builds, strengthens and repairs our body’s muscles, bones and blood. The protein composition of goat’ milk allows it to form a softer curd during digestion offering greater digestive health and comfort.

Type of Carbohydrate

Some carbohydrates, known as oligosaccharides possess “prebiotic” properties, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in our gut and boosting our immune system. Goat milk contains the highest amount of oligosaccharides among domestic animals and is free of added sugars

Essential Vitamins & Minerals

Research consistently shows that South Africans have a low intake of the minerals, calcium and potassium. Milk is a good source of calcium. Calcium is needed for strong bones and teeth.  Vitamin D is essential to help increase the absorption of calcium from the gut. Check the ingredients list on the milk label for milk with Vitamin D (cholecalciferol). 

One glass of KABRITA Instant Full Cream Goat Milk gives you half your daily requirements for vitamin D.

Important environmental issues such as hygiene, animal welfare and overall quality are uppermost in the minds of the most discerning consumer and parent.
