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!
Naturally easy to digest, goat milk is an ideal protein base for baby formula. Like cow milk, goat milk must also be adapted and fortified to meet the specific nutritional needs of little ones.
At Kabrita, we walk through this process carefully and mindfully, using the highest quality, non-GMO ingredients, crafting a safe and gentle formula, with a mild and sweet taste.
Cow milk sensitivity may encompass the delayed, mild to moderate
symptoms associated with cow milk.
The proteins in goat milk create a gentle curd in the tummy and are digested at a similar speed as breast milk. Kabrita goat milk formula is naturally easy to digest and gentle on tiny tummies.
Parents tell us that Kabrita goat milk formula has been a solution for their little ones with symptoms associated with cow milk sensitivity.
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 formula is not suitable for children with galactosemia and/or congenital alactasia.
Cow milk protein allergy
Cow milk protein allergy can be a serious health problem and affects 2-3% of children under 1 year of age. Symptoms may be immediate or delayed, and may include moderate to severe symptoms such as hives, vomiting, wheezing, severe eczema, and/or blood in stool. Cow milk protein allergy should be assessed and diagnosed by a healthcare provider. Kabrita goat milk formula is not suitable for children diagnosed with cow milk protein allergy.
