Is organic sheep's cheese also higher in Omega 3?

Hi,

I don't tolerate anything concerning dairy from cows,not even butter:(.....but I do seem to tolerate cheese from sheep. So,I was wondering,as sheep graze outside,if that would mean that (pasteurized) sheep cheese would also be high(er) in Omega 3? There seems to be no raw milk version of sheeps' cheese,like there are from cows,so only pasteurized cheese.

What are your thoughts on this?

I personally eat mostly sheep and goat dairy, I avoid cows (because of their A1 casein). However, what I can't find to buy, is sheep milk. So if you can't make cheese, consider selling the milk as is. There's no one else in the market doing so, so even if you won't get many customers in comparison to cow or goat milk, you'd still might get enough.

well, most sheep only eat grass. I never heard of anyone feeding grain to sheep.

"Factory grain fed sheep"? Never ever in my life have I encountered such a thing. Sheep are so undemanding it does not make any sense to factory farm them.

My local whole food store supplies sheep cheese from grass fed sheep,but it's pasteurized. At the cheese shop I've discovered this cheese,originally from Spain,called Manchego and that one's indeed rawmilk...but I don't know if it's from Grassfed sheep.

If you live near a Whole Foods or any other large health food store, they generally do carry raw sheep cheese.

This kidn of questions are far from easy to respond, such is wide the array of variables. E.G: are they raised organic? does organic mean grass fed or non-GM grain fed? Does it have acess to pasture? live in confinment?

Its is one of those times that i really feel blessed for living in Souther Europe: here in portugal i have acess to raw sheep/goat hard cheese, from pasture for about 1???(1-2 dollars) a piece, wich is no less then 100gr. Yum

Maybe your question should have read:

Is cheese from grass-fed sheep higher in Omega 3 fatty acids than cheese made from sheep's milk where the sheep are fed grain? or something similar.

I would imagine that the answer would have to be in the affirmative. Sheep are natural grazers, that's what they did originally and still mostly do, even if they eat dried grasses in summer.

Note that "organic" and "grass-fed" are not the same thing. Here in New Zealand most stock are grass-fed, but far from organically raised, as the farmers use standard industrial fertilisers and pesticides (albeit under a tough regulatory regime so we can sell to the EU).

And as Felix should know, here in Germany the only sheep that escape being fed beets and other stuff they'd never encounter naturally are those used for mowing city parks :)

Yes Grass fed sheep milk is higher in O3s than factory grain fed sheep milk.
