Kabrita Junior is a fortified milk drink composed to nutritionally support children aged 2-7 years old (as part of a balanced and varied diet). The A2 protein and pre- and probiotics may support a healthy gut and vitamin C, D and E contribute to the normal immune system function. Conventional cow’s milk is composed of a mixture of A1 and A2 milk, while goat milk naturally contains A2 milk with A1 milk being absent. This might seem as a small difference, but this is actually one of the many reasons why goat milk is naturally easier to digest and gentle on a child’s tummy.
Both Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula and Kabrita Junior are made from naturally easy-to-digest Dutch goat milk. Our Toddler Formula contains an adapted protein content and macronutrient profile for little ones, is fortified with 22 vitamins and minerals and intended for children 12-24 months. Kabrita Junior is a fortified milk, with vitamins C, D, E and DHA, intended for children over 2 years old.
Kabrita Junior is not suitable for infants. It should not be used as a substitute for infant formula or as a sole source of nutrition.
The proteins in milk consist of whey proteins and casein. The casein proteins can be divided in 4 different types: αS1-casein, αS2-casein, K-casein and B-casein. There are different genetic variants of B-casein, but the A1 and A2 variants are the major ones. Milk that only contains A2 B-casein and no A1 B-casein is called A2 milk, while A1 milk consists of a combination of A1 and A2 B-casein.
Kabrita Junior is not suitable for children with a confirmed cow milk protein allergy as goat milk protein may also provoke an allergic reaction. Kabrita Junior may be an option for children with a cow milk sensitivity.
Fluid goat milk and Kabrita Junior both naturally contain lactose, and are not suitable for children with a lactose intolerance. Kabrita Junior uses lactose as a primary carbohydrate with no added refined sugars such as maltodextrin or sucrose.
