Cows’ Milk & Lactose Intolerance
Evidence shows that as many as 5% of children under 3 years old develop a hypersensitivity to cows’ milk. (www.cowsmilkallergy.co.uk) Many people never grow out of their intolerance and large numbers of children and adults are discovering that this is often the cause of their skin disorders and respiratory and digestive problems.
It has become evident that a large proportion of those with an intolerance to cows’ milk are able to flourish on goats’ milk, so interest and demand are growing fast.
Goats’ milk does still contain lactose which occurs naturally in milk. However, due to the ease with which goats’ milk is digested, those who suffer lactose intolerance with cows’ milk rarely do so with goats’ milk.
The fat globules in goats’ milk are smaller than in cows’ milk so the human digestive enzymes can complete their breakdown much more rapidly.
The proteins also form a softer curd in the stomach which helps digestion. This makes goats’ milk an ideal food for children, the elderly, those with digestive difficulties and people recuperating from illness.
Mucous, Respiratory & Skin Conditions
Top Chef Antony Worrall Thompson discovered that switching his young daughter from cows’ milk to goats’ milk was an almost instant cure for her persistent runny nose.
Unlike cows’ milk, goats milk is non-mucous forming and actually helps to neutralise mucous which can provide dramatic relief to catarrh sufferers.
For example, for many children with perpetual ‘runny noses’, a switch from cows’ milk dairy products to goats’ milk can bring almost instant relief.
Many people who choose to replace cows’ milk with goats’ milk experience considerable improvements in conditions like asthma and eczema…most likely because of a reduced allergenic reaction to the undigested proteins associated with cows’ milk.
Welfare is a Top Priority
Delamere Dairy operates a strict, independently monitored, Farm Assurance and Welfare Code which means our goats’ milk comes from the healthy, happy goats. Most of the goats producing our milk are white British Saanens, a really good milking breed. They’re also very good natured, inquisitive and playful which makes them fun to work with (it’s tempting to say they like to kid around!!).
The milk is not classified as ‘organic’ but we adopt as many standards as possible. All our farms operate low input systems in terms of fertilisers and all the goats’ manure is spread back on the land. We treat sick animals with antibiotics, but only if absolutely necessary.
Our goats enjoy all of life’s home comforts in airy, draft-free, barns with a deep bedding of straw and plenty of space for ‘getting away’ from the group – standards closely monitored by the Welfare Code. These groups are decided according to when the goats are going to kid. We don’t mix the groups, simply because goats develop a strong social hierarchy.
