Goat’s milk is nutritious and contains an abundance of natural nutrition such as calcium, vitamin A and potassium. Due to its high natural nutrition, goat’s milk requires less processing and that makes it easily digested by the human body.
Other than that, goat’s milk contains a lower level of lactose that even allows people suffering from lactose intolerance to consume. It also contains high amounts of medium chain fatty acid that makes it easier to digest as compared to long chain fatty acid.
Goat’s milk has a larger caseins micelles (protein) size and that forms softer curds that allow the human body to digest them easily. The better digestion means that the protein stays in the intestine and stomach for a shorter period.
Goat’s milk also contains less amount of allergens, known as alpha s1 casein. The milk consists of four bioactive compounds — taurine, CPP, sialic acid and nucleotide.
One of the best ways to reap the benefits of goat’s milk is with Karihome’s goat’s milk range of products. These quality goat’s milk products are imported direct from Dairy Goat Co-operative (NZ) Ltd (DGC).
The cooperative has been in the market for over 30 years and supplies to over 27 countries. DGC carries the fern leaf trademark symbol from New Zealand — the international symbol that represents the trust that consumers around the globe have for quality.
Known for its warm weather throughout the four seasons, New Zealand has fresh pastures available from spring to winter. As a result, goats in New Zealand are particularly well-bred and strong, which contributes to the high quality of the milk.
It uses a free-range grazing system where fresh grasses are added to the goat’s feed, allowing them to take in the unique nutrients without any additives. Additionally, goat’s milk temperature at DGC is regulated to preserve their freshness — ensuring that each Karihome product quality is high.
Karihome’s range of goat’s milk products include a “Growing Up” formula for ages one to three years old, “Preschool” formula for those aged four to six years old, and the “Goat Whole Milk Powder” formula for ages seven and above.
The brand is the only full range goat’s milk formula available in Malaysia with formulas specially tailored to specific age groups. Karihome’s formula is also suitable for pregnant mothers and adults who need their daily dose of calcium.
