Breast milk is the gold standard for infant nutrition. In the absence of breast milk, Kabrita Goat Milk Formula is a gentle choice to maintain the comfort of babies and is naturally easier to digest.
Comparing Curd Quality
Many factors contribute to the quality of milk curd formed by casein proteins in the stomach, like the amount of alphaS1-casein and the size of casein protein micelle formed.
A higher amount of alphaS1-casein protein in cow’s milk, along with smaller casein micelles, is associated with larger, tougher, and firmer curds. Less alphaS1-casein and larger casein micelles, as is seen in goat’s milk, is associated with smaller, softer, and looser curds.1, 2
Research has demonstrated that goat milk proteins degrade faster than cow milk proteins in both the stomach and small intestine. Furthermore, Goat whey is broken down more quickly than cow whey.3, 4
Furthermore, research has shown the kinetics of protein digestion of Kabrita Goat Milk Infant Formula is comparable to breast milk, while protein digestion delays in cow milk infant formula in comparison.5
Added Benefits of Beta Palmitate
In breast milk, up to 25% of the fat is palmitic acid6, predominantly esterified to the middle (also called sn-2 or beta) position of the triglyceride7. Kabrita Goat Milk Formula uses a fat blend with beta palmitate, modeled after the fats found in breast milk.
A formula containing a fat blend with beta palmitate has been associated with increased fat and calcium absorption8, 9, 10, as well as whole body mineral content10. Additionally, it has been associated with more frequent improvement of hard stool to soft stool consistency.11
