Easy to digest
The public opinion is that standard formulas based on cow's milk are more familiar to children since they have long existed in the infant formula market. However, goat milk formulas are more adapted for feeding children up to a year. The composition of goat's milk is closer to human milk than cow's milk is. Therefore, the process of digesting the goat milk formula is close to that of human milk: in the stomach, it turns into a comfortable mass, which is then easily digested.
Goat Milk Protein
Protein is an essential biomolecule for a growing organism. When breastfeeding, the child receives breast milk protein, on artificial feeding - adapted milk formula protein. Milk is made up of caseins and whey proteins. There are four casein proteins: alpha-s1, alpha-s2, beta and kappa- casein; and two main whey proteins: beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin. Goat milk typically has much less alpha-s1 casein and more beta-casein compared to cow milk. A2 protein (β-casein) is easily absorbed and improves the intestinal microflora. Unlike cow milk, goat milk has practically no complex protein α-s1-casein, so it's digested 5 to 6 times faster.
Goat Milk Lipids
Adequate fat content in the adapted formula directly affects the development of the nervous system, immunity, brain, vision, growth, and weight of the baby. Among the fatty acids in different formulas, just like in breast milk, there are saturated (palmitic acid) and unsaturated (linoleic, alpha-linolenic, arachidonic acids and others). Each has a specific functionality and effect on metabolic processes.
