ABOUT SHEEP’S MILK

Sheep’s milk is also unique in its structure. Many of those who are lactose intolerant, and cannot drink cow or goat milk, can consume sheep’s milk. Sheep milk nutritionally out-performs goat & cow’s milk in almost all areas:

  • 44% more Energy than cow’s milk
  • 45% more Protein than cow’s milk
  • 50% more Iron than cow or goat’s milk
  • 38% more Calcium
  • 90% more Folic Acid than goat’s milk (similar levels in cow’s milk)
  • 50% more Vitamin B12 than cow’s milk
  • Higher levels of key vitamins A, D, E & C than both cow & goat’s milk

 

Many people who have an intolerance or sensitivities to cow’s milk find that they can consume sheep’s dairy products successfully because sheep milk contains higher levels of medium-short-chain fatty acids (MCT), which aids in the absorption of lactose. MCT also limits and/or inhibits cholesterol deposits.
