Goat’s milk is a rich source of nutrients and it has a unique composition that differs from that of cow’s milk. The compositional uniqueness of goat’s milk lies in its naturally high levels of important vitamins and minerals and many other substances that are naturally present in goat’s milk like prebiotic oligosaccharides.
Naturally high in vitamins and minerals
Natural source of vitamin A for vision and sight
(46% more than standard cow’s milk)*
Natural source of magnesium for development and growth
(33% more than standard cow’s milk)*
Natural source of vitamin C for development and growth

Natural source of calcium for teeth and bones

Almost half of mums with children aged 12-24 months have changed formulas to try to address their child’s digestive issues. Their main priority is to find formulas with prebiotics or probiotics. Prebiotics are a non-digestible food ingredient that, through its metabolisation by microorganisms in the gut, brings about specific changes in the composition and/or activity of the gut microbiota which promote host health and wellbeing.
Studies have also found that goat’s milk formula naturally contains 250-300mg/L oligosaccharides, which represents up to six times the concentration of prebiotic oligosaccharides than in standard cow’s milk to assist in the digestion process*.
The milk composition of major proteins differ somewhat between goat and cow milk. Goat’s milk formula has lower levels of αs1-CN and higher levels of β-CN than standard cow’s milk and therefore its casein profile is closer to human milk. αs1-CN has been suggested to be the cause of many people being unable to digest regular cow’s milk.
Goat’s milk contains lower concentration of cholesterol (11mg/100g) than standard cow’s milk (14mg/100g).
Goat’s milk formula is used in many countries, including in the infant feeding guidelines of Australia, New Zealand, the EU and England.
