One of the hallmarks of goat protein is that it is easy to digest. This is one of the number one concerns of people with allergies or intolerances. Because goat whey protein is so easy to digest, helps build muscle and boost the immune system, it is also an ideal choice for the elderly or even children who are suffering from a failure to thrive.
Goat Whey Supports Digestion
You’ve probably heard of casein, it is a form of milk protein that can be problematic for some people because it is more allergenic in nature. Soluble protein on the other hand, is a form of milk protein that is easier to digest and dissolves in water or water-based liquids.

For those who are lactose-intolerant, goat whey protein has less lactose making it easier to digest.
Goat protein also contains oligosaccharides which serve as prebiotics in the stomach. This in turn helps proliferate healthy bacteria and improve digestion overall.
Goat Whey Can Reduce Inflammation
Besides improving overall digestion, oligosaccharides are ant-inflammatory and can minimize pro-inflammatory bacteria from building up in the stomach and intestinal lining. They also promote the proliferation of healthy bacteria.
According to an article in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Goat milk contains significantly more oligosaccharides (gMOS) than bovine (bMOS) or sheep (sMOS) milk and also has a larger diversity of structures.
