Nutritional Comparison

Cow milk is thought to be the standard for milk consumption, but the truth is that goat milk is the choice for 65% of the world’s population! 

Goat milk is harder to find commercially as it is often sold in raw form, which is banned in many areas. Cow milk is more commercialized and is often less expensive.

The most common restriction regarding milk from cows or goats is due to lactose intolerance. This intolerance is caused by what is called a Casein allergy.

Cow milk contains A1 casein proteins, which many people find quite hard to digest. Goat milk contains A2 casein proteins, which many individuals find easier to digest.
