If you have come across our website, www.organicbabyfoodwholesale.com you might already be an organic baby formula expert. Regardless if you are already a formula pro, one of the most recurring questions we get is “what the difference between Cow milk and Goat milk baby formula?”.
Today at Organic Baby Food Wholesale we will have a closer look at the benefits of Goat milk and how it differs from Cow milk.
The most popular milk is Cow milk, for both the consumption of milk in its pure state as also products derived, as for example cheese or Baby formulas. Unfortunately, there seem to be more and more people, including babies, that don't tolerate Cow milk, with the most common syndrome being digestive problems. This is when Goat Milk can step in!
Many parents that experienced issues feeding their baby Cow Formula, reported back to us that after switching to Holle Goat milk Formula most or even all of their baby's digestive issues were mostly immediately gone.
The main ingredients found in any milk are two proteins: Casein and Whey. Depending on the animal (including human breast milk) the amount of these two proteins can vary. The amount found in Goat's milk, for example, is very similar in its balance to human milk. Many babies just can't tolerate the A1 Casein found in Cow milk, as Goat Milk doesn't have A1 Casein only A2, switching to Goat Milk formula can solve this problem.
Another reason why some babies do better on Goat milk are the Fatty Acids that are found in Goat milk, which have a higher proportion of short and medium chain acids, making it easier to digest compared to the ones found in Cow milk. Goat milk also contains a smaller size of fat globes and lactose.
If you take a closer look at the nutrients in both kinds of milk, you will find that they are very similar, however, Goat's milk contains more: magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B6, vitamin A, potassium and niacin. While Cows Milk has more B12 and Folic Acid. If you choose a Goat milk formula, make sure it supplements with B12 and Folic Acid, Holle Organic Goat Milk formula for instance does so already, making it the perfect balanced formula.
If your baby seems uncomfortable during or after feeding, or experiences gas, consult a doctor to determine if he /she suffers from allergy or intolerance before switching to a different formula.
