milk products

Posted by nick on August 18, 2003 at 06:10:29:

It is very often mentioned in books and web-sites that for a healthy diet one should exclude all diary products including yogurt.
I have two questions:
1. Does the above apply to cow’s milk products only or to all kinds of milk (goat, sheep) product?
I have read that goat milk is much more nutritional than cow’s milk, besides it is not suspected to cause any allergies contrary to cow’s milk. Since lately it getting relatively easy to get pasteurized goat milk in the local shops, I would like to know if it is safe to consume.
2. I wonder if yogurt is included also in the same exclusion. Since so many people suffer from lack of enzymes due to consumption of processed food and antibiotics, I would believe that yogurt would be beneficial as it is the enzymes that are used to prepare the yogurt. Yogurt is also one of the main foods that the doctor has advised our kids to consume. I have read again that during the period one takes antibiotics it is recommended to eat a couple of yogurts daily to cover the loss of bacteria. It is also very easy, at least in my area, to find good quality yogurt made of sheep’s milk, and I need this clarification for me and my family.

Many thanks.

The process of making yogurt does predigest some of the carbohydrates. Yogurt has many beneficial properties like B vitamins, lactic acid probiotic bacteria, and surfacants that dislodge microbes from the intestinal wall. Yogurt contains the same proteins that are in the fluid milk. Many people have problems with the milk proteins in cow's milk, called casein and others. Goat's milk doesn't have the same proteins as cow's milk. I don't know about sheep milk. The probiotic benefits of taking yogurt can be accomplished by taking probitoic supplements.

Mary,

Since the fermentation process that produces yogurt uses up nearly all the lactose, this pattern is that of lactose intolerance--which can now be treated with taking lactase when the dairy is ingested. Of course this intolerance is inherited.

True hypersensitivbity to dairy is due to the caseine (the protein in cow's milk).

Hope this helps.

Walt

Many of the negative aspects of milk are due to the fact that it has been pasturized. Such a process denatures amino acids, decreases vitamin content, destroys enzymes, and obliterates the milk's natural defenses against pathogens. Raw milk from either goats or cows is a healthy nourishing food. If you'd like more information check out the Weston Price society.

Yes, but yogurt does contain enzymes, isn’t it? And enzymes are needed to for the colon, to replace bacteria killed by antibiotics, etc.

Many thanks for the info and the reference to Weston Price society.
