If so, why would it be better?

Yes, of course that is right. I was thinking of over processing the milk, and its easier with goat milk because of not having to homogenize. :)

Either way, some folks notice a difference between A1 and A2 milk.

Cow's milk requires no pasteurization either. Unless you mean homogenization, goat's milk has small fat globules that do not separate as readily.

@cliff: Yes. Also there are many other bioactive peptides released from milk proteins during digestion. Any of them could have unexpected effects, no one has really looked yet.

@matthew- you mean the lack of evidence proving anything on A1 vs A2

I would say that the evidence for A1 and A2 proteins being important is still debatable.

I could be wrong but I thought cows milk had more A. that's why cow butter is yellow and goat butter is white. It could be that they are talking conventional milk? not really an argument for cows milk just interested.

The lower folic acid and lower vitamin B12 content is similar to breast milk. Goat Milk also provides more niacin, b6, and vitamin A than cow's milk.

+1- I've read that raw goats milk is almost identical (on a molecular level) to breast milk.

Simple answer is yes, because the casein is type A2 vs most cow-produced casein is A1 which is more problematic.

Not so simple answer is maybe not that much better if casein, even A2 affects you negatively.

It is generally seen as more favorable because the casein content and composition of goat's milk is more similar to human milk than cow's milk. Casein acts as an allergenic for many.

No, its a fad made up by old school vegan types like Paul Bragg.

Barring an allergy to casein, goat's milk is not as good as cow's milk for babies and young children due to the fact that it lacks folic acid and is low in vitamin B12.
