i bought a bunch of goat milk, butter, and cheese last night for my calcium needs and i've found that i don't feel foggy and congested after consuming it. does anyone here consume goat products and are they usually safer for people with casein issues?

The US also consumes as much if not more meat than milk and has one of the highest rates of cancer. Correlation does not equal causation.

What you are saying is not correct. 100% of the calcium is never absorbed from vegetables: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2621.1993.tb06187.x/abstract. Much more than 11% of the calcium in dairy is absorbed: http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/47/4/707.short and if milk made calcium get sucked from your bones it wouldn't *improve* calcium balance and not affect bone resorption when consumed, which is what it does: http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/41/2/254.short http://www.bmj.com/content/315/7118/1255.abstract

Goat's milk seems to be a little pricey here so I don't drink it. I do eat sheep's milk yogurt and goat cheese without problems. Kerrygold butter (from cows) doesn't seem to cause problems either. Anything else from a cow will stop me up, though.

Yes, goat cheese usually doesn't bother my stomach in the way that cow cheese does. For milk, though, I usually drink almond milk.

"for my calcium needs" It worries me when people say that. Most don't realise that dairy is a poor source of calcium. The dairy industry has been claiming for decades that you "need" their product. People believe it, and the research just isn't there. Magnesium is necessary to absorb calcium and dairy is a poor source of magnesium. Only 11% of the calcium is milk is bioavailable, compare that to 100% of calcium from your veggies. Dairy is acidic. It skews the body's PH and make your blood more acidic. The only way your body can compensate for this is to borrow calcium FROM YOUR BONES. Don't believe me? The U.S. consumes more dairy than any country in the word. We have the most osteoporosis.

it could be the fat molecule size in the goat's milk that makes it easier for you to digest. the fat doesn't cluster together like cow's milk does. both types have lactose and casein, but the casein in goat's is similar to human milk.

have you been tested for a lactose/casein allergy or intolerance? it's tough to know what really bothers you in the cow's milk when all milk contains a few triggers.

I actually don't tolerate goat's milk as well as cow milk. I can drink cow milk without much problem, so I don't think it's a lactose issue. I appear to be an outlier in this as far as I know.
