“How To Marinate Feta Cheese?”

You can use feta purchased from the store, or learn how to make feta cheese using goat milk.

Feta cheese is an excellent choice for making marinated cheese.

Marinated feta cheese will keep at room temperature for a time, if it is prepared properly. It can also be stored in a container in the refrigerator.

To keep the cheese at room temperature, you will need to use glass canning jars.

To use canning jars, first sterilize the jar, lid and ring by boiling in water for ten minutes. Remove all parts from the water with tongs and allow to cool.

Place alternating layers of herbs and cubes of feta cheese into the jar. Leave about 1″ space at the top. Cover the cheese and herbs completely with vegetable oil.

Stronger herbs will produce a more noticeable flavor in the cheese, but choose according to your taste. You can use either dried or fresh herbs. Some herbs that are typically used include:

  • peppercorns
  • garlic
  • dill
  • rosemary
  • basil
  • thyme
  • bay leaves
  • fig leaves

Olive oil will have the strongest flavor, and will add a beautiful golden-green color, but you can also use canola, soybean, or other vegetable oil if you prefer a lighter taste and look.

Place the lid and ring on the jar and tighten. The cheese will keep without refrigeration for a while, as long as it is completely covered by the oil.

Use your marinated feta as a snack.

Experiment with your own combinations to find your favorite taste.

Carbohydrates from Goat Milk

Carbohydrates are one of the main types of nutrients. This nutrient group includes foods recognized as sugars and starches. Carbohydrates are the most important and immediate source of energy for the body. The process of digestion convert carbohydrates into glucose, which is available as an immediate energy source by body cells, tissues and organs. Energy that is not used immediately is stored for future use.

Carbohydrates are classified as simple or complex, depending on their chemical structure. Simple carbohydrates include sugars found naturally in foods such as fruits, vegetables, milk, and milk products. Complex carbohydrates include whole grain breads and cereals, starchy vegetables and legumes.

As they say, anything excessive is harmful to health. An overabundance of carbohydrates can easily lead to weight gain, as a small amount of carbohydrates rich food sources provides a sizeable supply of energy that the body can readily use. It would be good if you are an athlete but not if you have a desk job.

Carbohydrates in milk are in the form of lactose, also known as milk sugar. Lactose is the ingredient responsible for the slightly sweet taste of milk, and is made up of two sugars, known as galactose and glucose, making it a simple carbohydrate.

The exact difference in lactose content between goat milk and cow  milk is hard to quantify because of the number of different analysis techniques used. However, it is widely accepted that goat milk is lower in lactose than cow milk. This lower lactose level has the most profound implications for individuals who are lactose intolerant.

Milk sugar, or Lactose in goat milk, provides a ready supply of energy, and together with the other nutrients in milk, makes goat milk a wise choice for a quick, energizing drink.

“HOW Goat Milk Skin Care Products Benefits the Elderly?”

Elderly skin care is a very important health concern for aging adults. While our skin is generally ignored throughout life unless we have a cut, a rash, an itch, or a burn, etc., Skin is our largest and important organ – adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it,  and the  skin plays a much bigger role than just holding everything together in one package.

Healthy skin keeps infectious agents from entering the body, synthesizes essential vitamin D from sunlight, manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones and provides our sensation of touch through the various nerves running throughout.

The hallmark of goat milk is its gentleness and nutritive properties in digestion, but those same properties carry over to the skin care products, as well.

Goat milk skin care products are especially suited for caring for the special challenges that aging skin presents.

For cleansing, goat milk soap has the benefits of a lower pH, making it more friendly to the skin’s protective acid mantle, and a high fat content that supplies moisture, while gently removing dirt and dead skin cells.

Goat milk soaps also come in a vast array of combinations that include nourishing herbs and other natural ingredients tailored for specific skincare needs. Read the labels or inquire as to the suitability of particular ingredients for elderly skin care, or for other special skin care needs.

Creams, lotion and body butters made from goat milk are also especially nourishing for elderly skin. The special fat and protein molecules from goat milk, along with an array of vitamins and minerals, are easily absorbed through the skin, providing hydration, a protective moisture barrier, and nourishment for the skin all at the same time.

Isolated rough patches of skin might also benefit from the application of a homemade facial solution containing goat milk yogurt, sour cream or buttermilk. These fermented products contain lactic acid, one of the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), known for helping to remove dead surface layer skin cells to leave skin smoother.

These goat milk versions of alpha hydroxy acid contain no additional chemicals or preservatives and are not as harsh as commercial products.

Conclusion, it is also vital to nourish skin from the inside out. Proper nutrition is an imperative component in elderly skin care.

As the saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.”That pudding was made with goat milk, right? Ha Ha Ha!

If you or an elderly loved one suffers from dry, itchy skin, try a cleansing and hydration program based on goat milk. Products are widely available, and come in a range of scents or unscented and added ingredients.

Experiment with different brands and varieties to find one that works best for your special needs.

Of course, homemade products are almost guaranteed to be less irritating and more moisturizing than commercial products, not to mention less expensive!

Minerals Nutrition in Goat Milk

Artisan Cheese

Cottage Cheese

Cream Cheese

Milk & Cream

Having familiar with Goat Milk Nutritional Breakdown, and it’s comparison to Cow Milk and Human Milk. Let us learn the importance of each mineral and its content in goat milk. Now, for the details!

Firstly, calcium. Everyone knows that calcium is important for the healthy growth and is widely recognized for its role in maintaining the strength and density of bones and teeth.

However, calcium also has equal or lesser known roles in other health issues. When it comes to minerals nutrition, calcium is without doubt a real powerhouse.

Below is a list of some of the other proven benefits of calcium:

  • helps protect against colon cancer
  • improves blood clotting ability
  • helps prevent anemia
  • helps prevent muscle contraction
  • helps maintain healthy blood pressure

Calcium stored in our bones will be utilized by our bodies if our calcium intake is insufficient. This is obviously not desirable, having the effect of weakening the skeletal structure.

Goat milk is a good source of calcium, containing approximately 13% more calcium per serving than cow’s milk, and making it one of the predominant natural minerals in milk.

Phosphorus works in conjunction with calcium and vitamin D to help build and maintain strong bones, but also plays a role in activities of the brain, kidney, heart and blood. Goat milk has a higher phosphorous content, provides 27.0% of the daily value for phosphorus per serving, whereas, cow milk provides 23.2% of the daily value.

Zinc functions as an antioxidant and is also important for a strong immune system and for healthy skin and production of hormones. Zinc levels in goat and cow’s milk are comparable.

Sodium in the body is important for maintaining fluid balances, but too much sodium has been implicated in high blood pressure for some people. One cup of both goat milk and cow milk provides about 1/5 of the recommended daily intake for adults, with reports varying of which product actually contains more.

Goat milk has a substantial advantage in potassium content over cow’s milk, containing about 134% more. Potassium is important in maintaining a healthy blood pressure and in muscle contraction.

All milk is notably low in levels of iron, a mineral used in the production of red blood cells, and copper, which is important for healthy skin and hair. However, in comparison, goat milk does contain more of these minerals than cow’s milk.

Magnesium is particularly beneficial to the heart, helping to maintain a regular heartbeat, preventing the formation of blood clots and raising good cholesterol levels. It also works with calcium and vitamin D to maintain healthy bones. Goat milk has a higher content of magnesium than cow’s milk.

Manganese is probably the least known of the minerals, but it too has important functions in the human body. Along with some of the other nutrients, it is an antioxidant, and it also complements digestion by helping the body convert protein and fat to energy. Manganese also helps the body absorb thiamin, one of the B vitamins. Goat milk is significantly higher in manganese than cow’s milk.

Lastly, selenium. Selenium is generally accepted as a powerful cancer prevention nutrient. In addition to its inclusion in antioxidant enzymes, it also is essential to helping the body produce its own antioxidant, Glutathione peroxidase.

Selenium also strengthens the immune system and plays a role in keeping the heart and blood vessels healthy. In a comparative study of human, cow and goat milk, researchers found that, although the amounts of selenium in each were comparable, selenium from goat milk resulted in more than twice the peroxidase activity of that from human and cow milk.

Conclusion, Goat milk is a good source for minerals nutrition, especially in calcium, potassium and selenium.

“How To Make Yogurt from RAW GOAT MILK?”

Artisan Cheese

Cottage Cheese

Cream Cheese

Milk & Cream

Yes, you can make yogurt from raw goat milk as well.

However, I would not suggest store bought milk for this method. You must use fresh clean milk that you have just milked out of your healthy goat and following extremely good sanitary procedure because you are not going to be pasteurizing the milk,  and any harmful bacteria may gets in the milk.

Directions:

  1. Start with 3 1/2 Cup. clean fresh raw milk.
  2. Stir in  1/2 -1 Cup. powdered milk if desired to produce a nice thick curd. (or a specially formulated culture)
  3. Warm milk to 115 degrees by whichever method you desire to heat your milk.
  4. Pour the warm milk into your incubating jars, add a couple of heaping tablespoon of plain “live culture” yogurt or DVI culture, screw the lid on tight and shake well.
  5. Now it is time to incubate; Cooler/heating pad method. Use a larger cooler. Place the cooler in a place where it will be undisturbed. Place the jar with the yogurt milk in the cooler. Place a heating pad over the jar (loosely). Set the pad on high (some pad needs to be set on high, yours may differ) and place the lid on the cooler. Leave it undisturbed for about 6-8 hours. If this is the first time you use this method, put a thermometer in the cooler to see what the pad is heating the inside of the cooler up to. You want it to be at least 110 degrees and not more than 120 degrees. You may need to turn your pad to medium.

(There are various methods of incubation – Food dehydrator, Cooler/water method, Cooler/heating pad method, Commercial yogurt maker ).
