About the Goat Milk

How was the the grass-fed, goat milk in Nanny Meal processed?


The grass fed, Goat Milk Protein, Goat Whey, and Goat Cream were dried by a unique process called Window Refractance Drying. This is a low temperature drying method to retain nutritional integrity only used by a handful of companies world wide. The Window Refractance machine is a drying method using conduction, convection and infrared which applies minimal and variable heat sources to dry the product and preserve the original integrity that keeps it as close to nature as possible.  This unique drying process allows the powerful probiotics and digestive enzymes to thrive from the lacto-fermentation or “pre-digestion” process.

The Goat Milk is from healthy grass fed, free range goats that graze on pesticide and chemical free pasture 365 days of the year.  They are offered hydroponically sprouted barley only during milking season.  Gluten is only found in the barley seed and not the grass.  The goat milk products in Nanny Meal do not contain gluten. 

Why Goat Milk is best?

Goat Milk is the most commonly consumed milk in the world and is most like human breast milk.  It is naturally homogenized, contains smaller fat particles, less lactose,and 89% less alpha casein than cow milk.  Goat milk contains Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's) and Prebiotics.  
  1. Prebiotics encourage the growth and activity of the good bacteria (Probiotics) in the digestive system, therefore supporting normal gut health and function.  Goat milk contains 4 to 5 times more pre-biotic, Oligosaccharide, compared to cow milk.  Oligosaccharides are both soluble and fermentable fiber. Prebiotics feed on fermentable carbohydrates in the gut and produce short chain fatty acids (SCFA's) and some B vitamins.  Additional benefits of Prebiotics include lowering of blood fats, improved insulin sensitivity,  and glucose metabolism.

Why not a Vegetable or Soy Protein?
Vegetable proteins lack the complete spectrum of essential amino acids which are essential for muscle building.  Soy protein is high in phytic acid which can bind to minerals and prevent normal absorption.  Soybean can also block key enzymes in digestion. Soybean is a common food allergen. Lastly, soybean negatively effect thyroid function.
