Types of Goat Milk

Today,  Powdered Goat milk are manufactured and marketed in most part of the world besides the United States. Powdered products available include Full Cream Milk Powder (Whole milk), Skimmed milk, Whey and infant foods.


Full Cream Milk Powder(Whole Milk)


The high fat content of full cream goat milk powder imparts it with a creamy flavor, and renders it suitable for a wide range of applications in the food industry.

Full cream goat milk powder is manufactured by spray-drying whole fresh goat milk. The goat milk powder contains the natural content of fat and protein present at the time before the goat milk is spray-dried. These contents are subject to seasonal fluctuation. However the process can be modified to incorporate the standardization of the fat and protein content, should this be required for a specific application.

Full cream goat milk powder is suitable for use in a wide variety of foods such as, for example, dairy drinks and desserts, cheese, ice-cream, infant and follow-on formula, nutritional supplements and tablets.

Goat Whey Powder


Goat whey powder is a unique product! Goat whey is a by-product in the production of cheese from goat milk.

Goat whey powder is obtained by concentrating and drying the whey produced during the manufacture of goat cheese. If so required, the whey can be partially desalted prior to drying.

Suppliers of whey powder offer a mixed whey powder, made from whey powder based on different sorts of milk. But  goat milk whey powder is made from pure goat milk whey without the additions of other sorts of milk whey powder.


What are the benefits of goat whey?

Goat whey contains approximately half of the milk sugars (lactose) compared to cow milk and, in addition, a richer amount of protein, vitamins and minerals. Goat whey contains greater amounts of amino acids like linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, as compare to cow whey. Goat whey contains bioorganic sodium, which the body can use to keep the joints limber and reduce inflammation in the joints.

In addition, goat whey powder and partially desalted goat whey powder can be used as an ingredient in children’s and dietary foods, in dairy products,  such as yoghurt, in bakery products, in confectionery, and in sectors like healthcare and pharmaceutical products.

Besides powered goat milk  there are different goat milk compositions as well, including:

Goat Milk Cream


Goat milk cream is made by separating fresh goat milk into cream and skim milk. The goat cream is then pasteurized and packaged.

Goat milk cream is often used in the ice-cream industry. It is also particularly appropriate for the standardization of cheese milk.

Different ingredients (sugar and stabilizers) may be added.


Evaporated Milk


Today, Evaporated Goat milk are manufactured and marketed in most part of the world besides the United States. Evaporation is usually done under reduced pressure, primarily to allow boiling at a lower temperature to prevent heat damage.

Flavored goat milk


It is milk to which some flavors have been added. When the term milk is used the product should contain a milk fat percentage of a least equal to the minimum legal requirement for market milk. But when the fat level is lower (1-2 per cent) the term ‘drink’ should be used.


Acidophilus Milk


It is fermented milk, produced by development in milk of a culture of Lactobacillus acidophilus. It is claimed that acidophilus milk has therapeutic and health promoting properties. It is also claimed that the growth of Lactobacillus acidophilus under the conditions existing in the intestinal tract will replace undesirable putrefactive fermentation with a beneficial lactic fermentation.


Carrot Milk


The rich nutrient content of carrot, especially, Vitamin A and its precursor carotene cannot be questioned. It is also rich in health giving fibre. Some people relish carrot as such in its raw form and some cook and use it. Another form of utilization is extraction of juice from carrot. But carrot juice when consumed as such will not be tasty. It has to be added with sugar. Just to make the carrot juice tasty and at the same time utilize the nutrients present in the juice in its natural form, carrot juice can be added with goat milk to make “CARROT MILK”.

There was no significant reduction in beta carotene content of the carotene enriched milk (vitaminized or  carrot enriched milk) when stored at 5°C during one week storage. The daily requirement of vitamin A is 5000 IU and 200 ml of the carotene enriched milk meets 20 per cent of the daily requirement of vitamin A.
