We are all aware of the amount of benefits milk has, particularly for the kids. It is one of the major foods that your kid needs for a better growth over all. Usually, people in Singapore and anywhere around the world mostly prefer cow milk over any other milk. However, in the last couple of years, there has been a slight change in the trend. A lot of people are switching over to goat milk. But what could be the reason behind the change of decision? Is it because people want to try something new? Or is goat milk really better than cow milk? Let’s go right in and find out.
- What Differentiates Cow Milk from Goat Milk?
One thing you know about goat milk is, it is a lot pricier than cow’s milk. Now, whether or not it is more nutritious, we will discuss that later in the article, but one thing is for certain, the higher price is not because of nutritional properties of goat milk, it is simply because goat milk is not as largely produced as cow’s milk and the supply is short, this is why the prices are higher.
- Cow Milk or Goat Milk?
One important thing to keep in mind while shopping is not to believe in everything the companies have to say about their products. The same rule applies to milk, it is always better to do your own research about a particular product before buying it, instead of relying on the information or the claims made by the manufacturers. Those who use goat’s milk bring up the argument that it higher in protein, calcium, potassium and vitamin A. While that is true, it is lower in selenium, folate, Omega-3 fats and B12 when compared with cow’s milk. One other important information that people are unaware of is that there is a very subtle difference between the two when it comes to nutrition, so it comes down to what you want in particular. If you want more protein, goat milk would be a better choice, but before you make your mind, you must decide whether you are willing to pay double the price for only one more gram of protein. A glass full of cow’s milk will give you about 8g protein, whereas goat’s milk will give you about 9g of protein.
- Camel Milk Could Be a Good Consideration
Several studies have shown that camel milk is a lot healthier for humans than cow’s milk. It is because it has less fat and cholesterol and a lot more iron, potassium, sodium and magnesium. The composition of human milk and camel’s milk is pretty similar to each other, containing good amount of vitamin B and C. Vitamin C is cow’s milk is lost during the process of pasteurization and it is a lot higher in fat as opposed to camel’s milk.
All kinds of milk have their own nutritional benefits and it is entirely up to you to decide what nutrients you are looking for. No matter which milk you go for, one thing is for certain, they are all filled with nutrition.
