This is what I gathered from online sources:
1. Goat’s milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk with its smaller fat globules and easily broken-down proteins. It takes 20 minutes for the human body to digest goat’s milk and up to 24 hours to digest cow’s milk.
2. Goat’s milk is an alternative for lactose-intolerant people as Goat’s milk has a lesser lactose (milk sugar)content as compared to cow’s milk.
3. Biochemically speaking, goat’s milk is closer to human mother’s milk than cow’s milk. Hence, it’s suitable for children who have problems digesting cow’s milk.
4. Goat’s milk is better for the environment. Goats, in general, eat less and occupy less grazing space as compared to cows. Thus, goat farms tend to generate lesser carbon footprints than cow farms. Goat’s milk are also less laden with artificial hormones and antibiotics as compared to cows which were treated with such chemicals to boost milk production or to grow fatter and faster.
Other health benefits of goat’s milk includes it’s non-allergic, soothing for the digestive tract and naturally homogenized.Even Dr.Oz, an American-Turkish surgeon and television personality, also recommended drinking goat’s milk and eating goat’s cheese as a way to live longer.
