The New Year often marks the start of new dietary habits, cutting back after the excesses of Christmas and generally being a bit healthy. If dairy is one area you’re looking to review, have you considered giving goats’ milk a go?
A naturally nutritious source of calcium, vitamins and minerals and goats’ milk is known to alleviate a number of ailments. For example, it can be a natural alternative for people who suffer from lactose intolerance. Goats’ milk does contain lactose but the physical make-up of goats’ milk makes it easier to digest than cows’ milk. This means the lactose doesn’t sit in the body for as long and cause the flare ups. The proteins in goats’ milk form a softer curd in the stomach which also aids digestion making it suitable for the elderly and children alike.
Delamere Dairy knows that over 80% of its customers buy goats’ milk for health reasons. Available in whole, semi-skimmed and skimmed varieties, there’s an option for all the family.
Goats’ milk can be used in exactly the same way as cows’ milk, in hot drinks, on cereal and in all your favourite recipes and sauces.
