The Benefits of Goat Milk vs. Cow Milk
Goat milk has always been a bit of a trade secret among moms and is known for its naturally easy to digest properties. Kabrita has harnessed the gentle benefits of goat milk into our line of Goat Milk Foods, designed for babies and toddlers.
There are a number of important differences between cow milk and goat milk. Is goat milk extraordinary? We think so!
Let's explore what makes Goat Milk the better milk
|GENTLE PROTEIN||Compared to cow milk, goat milk protein forms a smaller, softer, and looser curd in the tummy, leading to quick and easy digestion.|
|GOOD FATS||The fats in goat milk are also naturally easy to digest. They are smaller than cow milk fats and rich in beneficial short and medium chain fatty acids.|
|HEALTHY PREBIOTICS||Compared to cow milk, goat milk contains more gut-supportive prebiotic oligosaccharides.|
|NATURALLY NUTRITIOUS||Goat milk is rich in critical nutrients. Compared to cow milk, it has shown superior mineral bioavailability.|

What About Lactose Intolerance and Cow Milk Protein Allergy?
Lactose is often blamed for tummy troubles in little ones, but it’s the primary carbohydrate source in breast milk. Lactose is identical, regardless of source (breast milk, cow milk or goat milk). According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, lactose intolerance is uncommon under 2-3 years of age. Lactose intolerance should be assessed and diagnosed by a healthcare provider. Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula is not suitable for children with galactosemia and/or congenital alactasia.
Uncommon under 2-3 years of age

Cow milk protein allergy should be assessed and diagnosed by a healthcare provider. Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula is not suitable for children diagnosed with cow milk protein allergy (CMPA).
