Although goat's milk is very similar to a cow’s, there are differences that may make goat's milk a more healthy choice. One healthful benefit is that goat milk may help lower cholesterol. While the fat content of cow and goat milk is similar, goat milk contains about twice as many medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which are responsible for lowering cholesterol.

Things You'll Need

  • Low fat goat milk
  • Goat cheese or yogurt

Substitute goat milk for cow milk in your diet. Because goat milk has a stronger flavor than cow’s milk, you may want to mix both milk types before drinking it. Gradually increase the proportion of goat’s milk until you are accustomed to the taste.

Choose low fat goat milk over full fat versions. While the type of fat in goat’s milk may be more healthful, goat milk is still as high in fat as cow’s milk. So, reduce your total fat intake by choosing low fat milk.
