Yay goats!

As my friend and doctor-to-be can attest to, goats are cool animals, and food made from their milk can taste amazing. My food scientist friend has made loads of tasty cheese that I have eaten way too much of 🙂 I am also allergic to wool, so I was very excited to find out that this is an excellent substitute. There is so much more cool things about this milk, like how absorption of calcium and iron is more efficient when drinking this milk compared to drinking milk from cows, but it will not all fit in one single FancyFact, unfortunately.  The best thing about it, in my opinion, must be the hypoallergenic properties.

NOTE: no one is saying that this is super for people who are lactose intolerant, just to be clear about that. It does indeed contain lactose, so let’s not mix up these conditions.
