Goat Milk Formula Singapore 2022

For babies with cow milk sensitivity or other health issues about cow milk, goat’s milk or goat’s milk-based formulas may be a good option. However, goat’s milk products may not be for everyone.

That’s why in this article, we will highlight key facts and information about goat milk before recommending the best goat milk formula available in Singapore.


Goat Milk Formula Pros and Cons

Cow Milk Formula vs Goat Milk Formula
In fact, goat milk and cow milk are nearly equivalent in terms of macronutrients. Goat milk has the highest protein and cholesterol content, whereas cow milk has lower fat content.

In terms of vitamins and minerals, both milks have plenty to offer, albeit in different quantities. Cow milk has more vitamin B12, selenium, and folic acid than goat milk, while goat milk has more calcium, potassium, and vitamin A.

In addition, it’s possible that goat milk is easier on the stomach. This is because goat milk has fewer micro-proteins than cow milk, which makes it easier for certain people to digest. Fat molecules (or globules, to be more precise) are also smaller, making it easier for your body to process.

Parents can change their child's formula from cow's milk to goat's milk; during the transition, your child may experience certain side effects. And if once your children have stopped breastfeeding and you choose to give them goat’s milk, best to do it under doctor’s supervision.

Now, how about the cons? Well, goat milk formula has some downsides too. For instance, goat milk may more expensive than cow's milk and difficult to find outside of health food stores and farmers' markets because it isn't as common as cow's milk. And last, goat milk may have an unpleasing taste and smell, particularly those raised with cow’s milk.


Is goat milk formula good for babies with cow milk allergy?
No. Goat milk formula is not a good option for babies with cow milk allergy because it contains the same proteins as cow milk.

However, babies that show some symptoms of discomfort or negative reactions to cow’s milk (that do not have an allergy diagnosed), goat milk formula may be a good option. Due to several factors (different protein composition, more easily digestible fats) goat milk formula may be less allergic and easier on your baby’s tummy. (Source)

In case you’re still confuse, this is the difference between: 

Cow’s milk allergy vs Cow’s milk protein intolerance
A cow’s milk allergy is not the same as cow’s milk protein intolerance, which impacts up to 5 percent of infants within the first 1 to 3 months of life. Unlike an allergy to milk, an intolerance doesn’t involve the immune system. Signs of cow’s milk protein intolerance include bloating, gas, and diarrhea. (Source)

Conclusion


Still, breast milk provides the ideal nutrition for infants and is important for your baby’s development. It has a nearly perfect mix of vitamins, protein, and fat. However, if you can’t or choose not to breastfeed, you can use milk formulas. 

According to American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), cow’s milk formula is still the next best thing to breast milk for the majority of newborns. However, if your infants can’t digest cow’s milk, goat milk can be a good option for your baby. Always consult a doctor for determining which one is the best for your baby.
