Nutritional and therapeutic use of goat milk

Edson Luis de Azambuja Ribeiro, Horaci Jaqueline Silva de Souza Ribeiro

Abstract


This literature review had as objectives to describe the goats milk composition and its utilization in human feed. Due its good nutritional value, good digestibility and acceptability, and a low allergenic potential, the goat’s milk has been recommended for children, elderly and convalescent persons. However, it cannot be recommended to every child allergic to cow’s milk, because in some cases, serious threat to life can also occur with goat’s milk.


Keywords
