The benefits of goats milk when compared to cows milk are numerous. The composition of the fat globules in goats milk is finer than in cows milk, thereby allowing better digestion.

In addition the MCTs have lower cholesterol and provide a special form of energy that is easy to metabolise. Goats milk supplies approx.20% more calcium and phosphorus than cows milk.
