“Smaller” fat? Does that mean it has less fat? Not necessarily, it means that the size of the fat molecules in goat’s milk are much smaller than those found in cow’s milk. This makes goat’s milk easier to digest. Goat’s milk supports good health in many ways. It is also void of the negative characteristics of cow’s milk. Some research suggests that one of the main benefits of goat’s milk is that it doesn’t cause inflammation. That’s a big reason why it is easier for people with bowel inflammation to drink goat’s milk, instead of cow’s milk. Many people worry that they need to drink cow’s milk to meet their calcium requirements and support bone health. Goat’s milk is high in calcium, the amino acid tryptophan, and is a more healthy option than cow’s milk. Goat’s milk contains selenium, an essential trace mineral that supports the immune system. Whereas most cow’s milk contains bovine growth hormones and bovine somatotropin, a hormone that artificially increases milk production, goats are rarely given these substances. Because of its use on the fringes of big agriculture, goat’s milk is more nutritious and less toxic.
