Goat cheese in a salad: absolutely. But how about adding goat milk products to your favourite smoothies? Dehydrated goat whey (a mineral supplement derived the watery component of goat’s milk) and goat’s milk protein powder are two nutritional powerhouses that are very easy to add to your diet. Here’s why you’ll love them.

Easy to digest

“About 70% of us can’t drink cow’s milk past childhood, but goat’s milk is well tolerated,” says Toronto nutritionist Melissa Ramos of “Goat’s milk is a smaller molecular size so it’s a lot easier to digest.”

An alkaline source Cow’s milk 

Is high in phosphoric acid, and this acidity makes it tough for your body to assimilate minerals, especially calcium, says Ramos. In contrast, goat whey has a beneficial alkaline effect, helping to balance your body’s pH levels.

Rich in vitamins and minerals

Goat whey powder is a whole food source of more than 25 naturally occurring macro and trace minerals. These include potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, which are all important building blocks for health. “It’s also rich in Vitamin A, which can fight acne and improve your complexion,” says Ramos. 

Health helper

Goat whey powder helps to relieve pain that comes with joint disorders like arthritis and rheumatism, works to alleviate osteoporosis, treats stomach acidity and sensitive digestion, combats constipation and strengthens a weakened immune system.

Protein source

Goat protein powder helps to build lean muscle when combined with weight training and a healthy balanced diet. It’s also a source of amino acids that are needed to synthesize muscle protein.

Try a little goat today…your body will thank you!

Powdered goat whey mixed into a smoothie is ideal for new moms—it’s a wonderful source of minerals and trace elements that are depleted during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

This delicious smoothie, packed with goodness and whole foods, is a morning staple for Paul Rivett-Carnac, co-owner of St. Francis Herb Farm.

1 cup almond milk

½ banana

2 Tbsp St. Francis Herb Farm Coconut Oil (liquid)

1 Tbsp St. Francis Mineral Matrix (pure dehydrated goat whey)

1 Tbsp St. Francis GoPro Matrix (pure goat milk protein powder)

1 Tbsp green supplement of choice

handful of kale or spinach

¾ cup frozen fruit (blueberries are especially good)

Combine all ingredients in a blender. For better blending, use ½ cup almond milk at the beginning and a ½ cup at the end.
