Many parents are wondering if there really is a difference between organic goat’s milk formula and a more natural formula like Oli6. The answer is quite simple, since the only difference lies with where the goats the formula is obtained from.
One contains organic milk the other contains non organic milk, however, the nutritional values are the same. Subsequently, the nature of the source product does not influence its nutritional completeness.
Organic milk comes from goats which have been fed organic feed. They live on farms that do not contain pesticides and chemicals. However, when the animals get sick and receive a treatment, they cannot be milked; this is the only real difference between organic and natural.
Considering a natural goat’s milk formula over an organic goat’s milk formula? Check out some of the benefits of natural formula we have listed below, which could help you decide whether to choose natural or organic goat’s milk formula!
Easy digestion is one of the most sought-after benefits by parents. Fortunately, this is also a benefit you can find with Oli6 goat’s milk formula, which contains the high levels of natural prebiotics inside goat’s milk.
Prebiotic oligosaccharides are non-digestible fibres; this means they are not digested by the human body but that they provide countless benefits for digestion instead.
Natural prebiotics remain in the gastrointestinal system, where they absorb water and promote the growth of healthy gut bacteria such as lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. By promoting the growth of these bacteria, natural prebiotics also limit the growth of harmful bacteria.
Prebiotic oligosaccharides inside goat’s milk also absorb water in the large intestine; this also influences digestion, since passing stool becomes a lot softer and easier to pass.
Infants who are prone to digestion-related problems could benefit from goat’s milk formula. Since the formula is based on goat’s milk, it adopts all the digestion benefits goat’s milk is associated with.
In addition to the digestion-related benefits of prebiotic oligosaccharides, goat’s milk formula also contains phospholipids. These compounds are associated with a reduced risk of gastrointestinal infections, again contributing to the digestibility of goat’s milk formula.
It is important to know that goat’s milk has many similarities to human milk, which is another reason why a lot of parents choose Oli6 goat’s milk formula over alternatives.
Goat’s milk has prebiotic oligosaccharides that are similar in structure to those inside human milk. We must also mention that goat’s milk contains six times more natural prebiotics than regular cow’s milk, which certainly proves beneficial for digestion. The reasons why we have already covered above.
Human milk also contains lots of phospholipids and goat’s milk contains similar levels. These phospholipids are vital for functions such as brain development, but they are also important for the structure of cells. Phospholipids are needed to form the lipid bilayer, which is part of the cell membrane. So, without phospholipids, the human body simply could not function.
Goat’s milk also has good levels nucleotides, similar to those inside human milk. Much like phospholipids, nucleotides are extremely important for human cells. Nucleotides are linked to cell development, cell regeneration, and even play a role in the creation of DNA and RNA.
Oli6 takes pride in the fact that their formula is as natural as possible. The brand takes full advantage of the natural properties of goat’s milk; this enables them to keep additives to a minimum.
Oli6 does not add the following artificial additives:
Fish oil – many brands add fish oil to there range as a source of omega 3, however, this is also an allergen which can cause digestive issues, rashes and eczema in sensitive tiny tummies
Artificial prebiotics – The goat’s milk in Oli6 contains 5 common prebiotic oligos with human milk, these oligos have been proven by the RMIT to aid with the growth of beneficial bacteria like BB12 and reduce the incidence of harmful bacteria like E. coli. For this reason, Oli6 doesn’t add artificial prebiotics like GOS which most formula brands do
Artificial nucleotides – The goat’s milk in Oli6 has high levels of nucleotides which aid with cell development, for this reason Oli6 doesn’t add in artificial nucleotides like most cow milk formulas.
Goat’s milk is also high in many essential nutrients that are required for good growth and development; this includes the substances we already mentioned such as prebiotic oligosaccharides, nucleotides, amino acids, and phospholipids. Since goat’s milk already contains these compounds, these nutrients do not have to be added through additives.
Goat’s milk is also an outstanding source of essential vitamins and minerals, which means they do not have to be added either. In fact, goat’s milk contains higher levels of certain vitamins and minerals when you compare it to cow’s milk; this includes calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, and vitamin C.
In conclusion, Oli6 Dairy Goat Formula is a more natural Australian goat’s milk formula. So, parents who want their child to benefit from easier digestion as well as other natural benefits of goat’s milk should certainly consider our formula.
