Nanny Care - First Infant Goat Milk (0 - 12 months)
NANNYcare Goat Milk Infant Nutrition is a formula milk alternative for babies that provides all the nutrition and benefits of Goat Milk to offer them the best start in life. The New Zealand goats that provide the milk are grass-fed pastures and raised without the use of hormones, stimulants or growth enhancing drugs in their healthy diet. This provides a natural milk that is processed and fortified with essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals including iron, folic acid, vitamins A, C and D which support the health, developments and growth of babies at this important time. The nutritional qualities of goat milk naturally make it very gentle on tiny stomachs owing to the low levels of the protein alpha-s1 caesin which makes the curds in the milk smaller and softer. The low level lactose NANNYcare Milk powder's softer curds and amino acids are more efficiently absorbed in to the digestive system, unlike cow's milk, making it a formula milk option for babies with a lactose intolerance or allergy*. NANNYcare Goat Milk also has smaller droplets of fat and double the amount of medium-chain fatty acids in comparison to the fat presence in cow's milk, which further supports the ease of digestion, reduced gut inflammation and permeability, in young infants.

Goat milk is fast becoming the UK's fastest growing dairy product as consumers and becoming more educated and aware of the benefits of goat milk and goat milk products. Goats are very particular animals and very fussy about what they eat refusing unnatural and poor quality food. Goat milk is naturally higher in important minerals including zinc, iron, calcium and selenium in comparison to cow's milk which is ideal for babies, toddlers and young children who are at risk of developing iron and zinc deficiencies. Regular digestion of goat milk also helps increase iron levels in adults and combats bone demineralisation (softening of the bones).

Goat Milk vs Cow Milk
- Nutrient content of goat milk is slightly less than cow milk but goat milk is more digestible because the fat molecules are one-fifth the size of those from cow milk -- making it easily tolerated by those with compromised digestive systems.
- Seventy-two percent of the milk used throughout the world is from goats. It is one-third richer than cow’s milk but more nourishing and easier to digest.
- The flavor of goat milk is comparable to that of cow milk. Goat milk has a milder taste.
- Goat milk has no cream separation because of smaller fat molecules.
- Allergy to cow's milk has been found in many people with conditions such as recurrent ear infections, asthma, eczema, and even rheumatoid arthritis. Replacing cow's milk with goat's milk may help to reduce some of the symptoms of these conditions.
- Goat milk contains pre-formed Vitamin A in the milk fat that allows it to be readily available for use by the body. Researchers have found this to have cancer-preventing properties.
- Goats milk contains more highly evolved cholesterol than cows milk, making it more available for absorption to the brain and body. (Cholesterol is essential to the health of the myelin sheaths "white matter" of the nerves in the brain.)
- Goat milk is closer to human milk and is therefore easily accepted especially by those young or frail.
- Goat milk has an alkaline reaction the same as mother's milk. Cow milk has an acid reaction
- Goat milk does not form mucous (phlegm) and is therefore better tolerated by asthmatics and those with allergies.
- Goat milk contains more chlorine, fluorine and silicon than any other domestic livestock. Chlorine and fluorine are natural germicides and fluorine assists in preventing diabetes.
- Goat milk contains 2% curd, which precipitates in the stomach. Cows milk is 10% curd.
- Goats are naturally immune to diseases, such as tuberculosis, and are used in third-world countries to actually cure tuberculosis because of their inherent antibodies.
- Goats milk is tolerated by a compromised /damaged liver because of the smaller fat molecules and it's naturally homogenized.
- Goats milk has the ability to "sweeten" the intestinal tract and assist with constipation.
