Different milks....different nutrition

 


IF YOU CAN'T EAT CHEESE...........
......Many people are able to enjoy genuine sheep milk cheese, even after years of privation. Sheep milk contains almost twice the goodness of cows' milk and is very high in protein and zinc. 


ALLERGIC TO COW MILK
Unless you are lactose intolerant, sheep milk is the ideal alternative.
Such allergies cause a wide range of undiagnosed problems.
Being told to come off dairy products usually only means cows milk products and not sheep or goat. Calcium deficiency can occur if cow milk products are eliminated from the diet.

If you are worried about cholesterol - remember that the level of fat does not necessarily relate to the level of cholesterol, 45% of the fatty acids in sheep milk are mono or polyunsaturated.

 

JUST HAD ANTIBIOTICS
A small sheep milk acidophilus cultured yogurt every morning will help restore gut flora.
Doctors and dieticians recommended the high calcium content of sheep milk for those suffering from a variety of problems where extra calcium is prescribed.


ASTHMA, ECZEMA AND SKIN PROBLEMS

Changing to sheep and goat milk can aid the treatment of these and other related problems. Sheep milk is especially good, as it is high in both calcium and zinc. The naturally high levels of the B Complex Vitamins help give a sense of well being, good health and a clear complexion.

Although the milk varies between breeds and the lactation, the table shown below is a typical analysis.
