Goat's Milk?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I was just wondering if anyone out there with a problem with Cow's milk is able to digest Goat's or Sheep's?

I've figured out that I can't only not digest gluten, but also lactose and soy. :(

Help! :)

If you're just lactose (the milk sugar) intolerant, you can still have milk by taking lactase enzymes.

If you are casein (the milk protein) intolerant, you might be able to have goat's milk, but it depends upon your level of intolerance. Most people are intolerant to just one or two of the subsets of casein found in dairy, and while all mammals contain all of the subtypes, they contain them at different levels. So, you might be able to have it, but possibly not. Some other types of milk are even more likely (studies suggest that mares milk (horse) is the most tolerable for those with an allergy *or* an intolerance - there's a big difference).

I discovered a couple months ago that I'm fine w/ the occasional goat cheese.

There are some fanTAStic ones. I've only had local "fresh" varieties so far - nothing "aged".

So it's been some Feta, Mozzarella & regular Chevre.

Yum :)

Yes, I am one that is fine with goats milk cheese in moderation but cannot tolerate cows milk cheeses ( or milk powder , milk etc). I buy some imported French and Italian goats milk cheeses and indulge !

This link explains the different caseins quite well.

I am very sensitive to casin (sp). I eat goat yogurt about once a week. I have also had buffolo yogurt. That is made from the whole milk and is very high fat. I cannot touch any cow milk.
