Dr. Oz Loves Goat Milk!

Recently, Dr. Oz was featured on Oprah. Among the many helpful tips he gave he had this to say about goat milk.

“Many Sardinians also drink goat’s milk, which is high in calcium and good for your heart. “Plus, researchers believe it could protect against Alzheimer’s and heart disease,”

“Not only is goat’s milk healthy, it’s easier for your stomach to digest and is also good for people who are lactose intolerant. “It has tryptophan, that same sort of mellowing agent that turkey has,” Dr. Oz says. “The fat particles in goat milk are much smaller than in cow milk, so you don’t have to mix it up. (homogenize the milk) And when you mix up fat globules, (as in cow milk) in some people it makes enzymes that irritate your stomach.”

It looks like Dr. Oz is agreeing with what we have been telling people for years. Goat milk key to our health!

    Goat milk is good but it is a pathetic taste. Is there any way i can take this milk without that pathetic taste???

    Anxiously waiting for the reply

    I would take it one step further and say that RAW goat milk is best. In fact, raw dairy & goat milk is better than pasteurized anything.

    When I first tried goat milk, it had a funny taste, but as I started drinking it more and more, it didn’t taste any different from cow milk. I LOVE all goat products, milk and cheese, yum !!

    With regards to taste, just don’t be expecting it to taste like the cows’ milk you are probably used to. Now that I’v been drinking goats’ milk for a while, I find cows’ milk somewhat bland in comparison.
    There is no better bedtime beverage, in my opinion, than a mug of warm goats’ milk with a bit of honey.

    Btw, it is probably more expensive in the US due to the low demand for it, and thus the smaller number of dairy goats. In countries where goats milk is more popular, and dairy goats more common, the price is lower and you can find it in ordinary supermarkets.

    I have a problem with a lot of sinus congestion, sore throats and mucus produced from cows milk, so I have been cow milk dairy free for years and it has has been very helpful. i love the taste of goat cheese,from am afraid of eating too much of it for fear of getting sick. I would appreciate feedback on this important issue. I am also glutin free because I was told I have celiac, but it has never been proven. Thank you!

      I have the same problem with cow’s milk and have also been dairy free for quite a while. I would be interested to hear if you get a response to this question too! Thanks, Erica

      I have similar problems–severe and chronic sinusitis and chronic ear infections plus asthma. Cow milk has always been my most serious trigger and I have avoided it for decades. I read labels carefully before consuming any food. I cannot even consume foods containing casein. a few months ago, after years of having read that most dairy allergies are to cow’s milk products, I finally got up the courage to try goat cheese. I tried just a crumb at first, with no reaction. I then started to consume more and more. Now I eat lots of goat cheese and drink lots of goat milk with absolutely no reaction. I am thrilled to be able to consume dairy products (goat dairy).

    I love goat milk ever since I tried it about a month ago. The problem is it is about 6 times as expensive as vitamin D cows milk. One gallon of cow milk costs about $2.50, and the same amount of goats milk costs $15!!!! Is there any cheaper alterative?

  7. Jody says:

    If i got my goat would i be able to take it strait from the goat to the glass or is there a process to make it safe?

    • Jodie says:

      If you milk straight from a clean udder into a clean container all you have to do is put the milk in the fridge and it should be fine for up to 5 days. You can pasteurise it, but I have been drinking it raw for about 5 years now and never had a problem 🙂

    I got raw goat milk from local farmer in central part of WA, $12.00 for 1 gallon (had to drive 3 hours). Taste delicious comparing to the whole food store one! So, look for local farmers around and ask them where to find raw goat milk. It staying good in refrigerator for 5 days!!

    I love goat cheese and milk. I got some cherry goat cheese today at the Farmer’s Market in Nashville,TN. I will be planning a trip to your farm.

    I had a stroke about 3 weeks ago & I am on a salt free fat free diet. I have to drink ff milk. Is goat milk high in fat? ff dairy has 130 grms of sodium. I wanted to check on it if it is low fat. Thanks

    Hi! When did Dr. Oz say this? I am working on a people’s project for school and my movement is to tell people to switch to goat meat and goat products like goat milk in order to help the drought and I would love to use this quote ! You can read more about our campaign and why we believe people should make the switch at these two places: http://www.facebook.com/youhavegoattobekiddingme or http://youhavegoattobekiddingme.weebly.com/ . I would love to know why people chose goat products too!

    I have only had goats for a short time with the intent of producing my own milk. However, was skeptical, only did it because my husband wanted it. I had tasted goat milk from a friend many years ago and it was awful. She let them graze on weeds alone, nasty stuff. I recently acquired an La Mancha (hope I spelled that right) that is about two I’m guessing. I had to “fix” some things with her because of minimal care after the care taker passed away. It took about two weeks. We are now getting extremely good tasting raw goat milk. More than I know what to do with. This breed give approximately a gallon of mike per day, is very friendly and loves attention. With the right food, a clean environment and lots of love you can get some very nutritious and delicious milk. Also tried my hand at some “Easy Cheese”, also delicious. Great on pizza! I highly recommend raw goat milk!!!

    I’ve read several comments that goat milk tastes awful. The taste of the milk is directly connected to what the goat eats. Fed good pasture/hay and some quality dairy goat feed and the milk will taste “awesome” not awful.
