WHY GOAT'S MILK ice cream?
Did you know that 65% of the world’s population drink goat’s milk?
Goat’s milk contains less lactose than cow’s milk and is filled with vitamins, enzymes, and protein. Goat’s milk is also less allergenic. It doesn’t contain the complex proteins that stimulate allergic reactions to cow’s milk, so it doesn’t suppress the immune system. It’s easier to digest than cow’s milk. Statistics show that goat’s milk will digest in a baby’s stomach in twenty minutes, whereas pasteurized cow’s milk takes eight hours. The difference is in the structure of the milk. It contains twice the healthful medium chain fatty acids, such as capric and caprylic acids, which are highly anti-microbial. So why wouldn't you choose Goat's Milk Ice Cream?!
