    Does anyone have any experience with Goat Whey? I am lactose intolerant and cannot take conventional whey protein...My local GNC is out of Egg Protein which is what I was using. The clerk told me to try Goat Whey...its lactose free and she said they cannot keep it in stock...all the local meat heads are buying it up...

    I bought some...just took my first dose...it mixes REAL well in water with just a spoon to stir it...no blender needed which is nice...no clumping....tasted better too...

    Id love to hear your experiences with it.

    Goat milk has about the same amount of lactose as cow's milk. The exact composition varies depending on breed and diet. Highly purified wheys are usually called something like "whey protein isolate" and contain very little lactose. There's no reason why goat whey would have less than cow whey.

    There is no such thing as "conventional whey protein." There are different types of whey protein, and the amount of lactose depends on how the whey was processed. The stuff I buy, Whey Protein Isolate Cold-Filtration, is "virtually fat free and lactose (sugar) free."

    If a whey product is causing bloating, cramps, etc, it's probably made from cheaper, less filtered, whey protein concentrate. The microfiltered and ion exchange whey protein isolates have been further concentrated to be virtually free of fat and lactose.

    People often confuse lactose intolerance and casein allergy. Casein does not occur in goat's milk, which also has a supposedly more digestible fat structure.

    My brother is allergic to casein and drank goat's milk when we were kids -- when it was considered bizarre and was hard to find. I am lactose intolerant and the goat's milk produced milder symptoms but did not eliminate them.

    I'm the same way with cow milk products. Even if it says lactose free I seem to have problems with it. I did find that sucralose also messes with my stomach which a lot of protein drinks now have. I would rather have good old sugar or even aspartame. I have been able to find protein with out all the artificial stuff in it.

    here are links to articles about why people can tolerate goats milk but not cows milk ..

    It's certainly possible that the antigenicity of the proteins varies, but lactose is lactose. It's the same in goats and cows, and in fact it's about half as much as in human milk.

    BTW: some of the yummiest cheeses that I had in Spain were made from half sheep's milk. I've never seen actual sheep milk sold anywhere, though. According to The Simpsons, all the stuff sold on school lunch trays is Rat milk, anyway.

    goat's milk is closer nutrient and structure wise to human's milk than cow's milk.

    easier to digest than cow's milk. which usually means more bioavailable.

    The real truth behind Cattle versus Goat is that Goat milk's protein chain is much smaller and so is human's milk protein chain. So, it takes fewer enzymes to break down the protein to be digested. Cattle casein is the protein that people associate with allergies to cow's milk. Human milk has casein also but much less. It is just a mater of breaking down the protein chains. Just about every food item humans are allergic to is because of a protein chain. Gluten is the protein chain in Wheat that many people are allergic to.
