If you're lactose intolerant or have other dietary restrictions, healthline suggests switching to goat milk because of its high nutrient and mineral content. However, due to the risk of adverse reactions, goat milk should be avoided by a few demographics.
People who are allergic to goat milk should stay away from it. Certain individuals, like those who are allergic to cow's milk, also react negatively to goat milk proteins. Rash, hives, itching, swelling, difficulty breathing, and stomach upset are just some of the possible reactions to goat milk. Avoid drinking goat milk and visit a doctor if you have an allergy reaction.
Those who are lactose intolerant should also stay away from goat milk because of its high sugar content. Some people have trouble processing the milk sugar lactose. The term "lactose intolerance" describes this ailment. Bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, and diarrhoea are all symptoms of lactose intolerance. If lactose intolerance is a problem for you, it's best to stick to alternatives like soy or rice milk instead of goat milk.
To add insult to injury, goat milk is not recommended for those who have compromised immune systems. There are a lot of bacteria in goat milk, so those with compromised immune systems shouldn't drink it. This category contains those who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, those who have battled cancer, and those who have had organs transplanted. These people should only consume pasteurised milk products to avoid possible food poisoning.
Additionally, goat milk is not safe for pregnant women to consume. Because of this lack of research, it is unclear whether or not pregnant women can safely consume goat milk. Pregnant women should check with their doctor before trying any new food or drink, including goat milk.
As a result, there are a few categories of people who shouldn't consume goat milk. Those who are lactose intolerant, have a compromised immune system, are pregnant, or have an allergy to it are among these groups. Goat milk should be avoided and other sources of nutrition sought out if you fit into one of these categories. If you have any concerns or questions, you should talk to your doctor.
