Good for lactose intolerant people pets
I have lactose intolerance even though I love milk milk-based beverages. Homemade shakes, chocolate or strawberry milk, milk in my cereal, oatmeal, mashed potatoes, in my coffee. But as long as have no more than a half a glass no more than once every 3-4 hours, I just get some minor gas. So as long
as I wasn't going to be around people for around 3 hours, I can drink a half a glass of milk or pour that much in my cereal. Any more, I'd have to run to make many serious emergency trips to the bathroom half the day. But sometimes I wish I can have more than a half a glass, or more cereal. I've tried the milk substitutes, lactose free stuff. It didn't taste as good, it's almost expensive as this stuff. So I tried watering my milk down to have more, or mixing it half half with the substitutes. As we get older we get less calcium our bones get brittle. The substitutes or watering milk down reduces the amount of calcium that we consume. I read this goat milk has less of the lactose that gives us digestive problems, it's more digestible than regular milk lactose. So I gave it a try. I've heard goat milk has an odd flavor or taste sweeter than ordinary milk. But to me it smelled tasted almost like my regular powdered/dry milk. Maybe my regular milk tastes just a tad sweeter. Because I live alone am lactose intolerant, regular milk would sour spoil before I'd use it up. I could freeze it, but then have to go through the fuss of defrosting it when I need more, it consuming my cluttered freezer space. So I use powdered milk. My first try or Kabrita was with just a half of glass. It tasted good, I did not get any gas or lactose intolerant effects. It's too expensive for me to drink a lot regularly, but now I can have a tall glass of milk or more cereal if I want to treat myself without any of the bad lactose effects. I mix it half half with my regular powdered milk find I can drink a tall glass of the mix with only some minor lactose gas for a few hours. My cats, like most cats when they get older are also lactose intolerant but love milk too. My half half mixture is fine for them, with no soft or runny stool later. They love it. It's not healthy for them to eat a lot of dry food, so I mix some in with their dry food too they gobble it up like it's manna from heaven. It doesn't dissolve as easily as my regular powdered milk, but isn't difficult either. I just discovered they make an adult version not formulated for toddlers a little cheaper. I'll test that version next time to see if it's just as good for my lactose problems tastes as good.
