Goat Milk Composition


Milk composition differ hugely from one individual animal and one species to the next. However I have found goat milk in our region to have lower solids than cow milk.

Usually in the range of 3.5% Fat, 3% Protein and 4.5% Lactose.

I think some of the beneficial differences between cow milk and goat milk can be attributed to different proteins and fatty acids in the goat milk.

Like the medium chain triglycerides in goat milk that do not follow the same metabolic pathways as other fats in the diet, but are absorbed more easily.
