Why Sheep Milk?
Easier to digest
Over 70% of people are sensitive to cow milk. We wanted to bring dairy back with products that do not cause any digestive issues, plain and simple. Sheep milk products are the perfect healthy alternative to cow milk products. While it takes 4 hours to digest a cup of cow milk, it takes less than 1 hour for a cup of sheep milk. Digestibility is one of our products’ greatest strengths, ensuring that you feel good for the rest of the day.
A Superior Milk
Sheep milk products are considered superfoods and are a staple in many diets. Sheep milk products are a complete source of protein, offering all 20 essential amino acids needed by the human body. Studies have also shown that sheep milk has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Compared to cow milk, sheep milk products pack almost double the protein, minerals, and vitamins.
Taste the Difference
Unlike goat milk, sheep milk products are similar to cow milk products in flavour while being naturally creamier and sweeter. Sheep yogurt is naturally thicker than cow and goat yogurt due to the higher solid content in sheep milk. Feta, made from sheep milk, has a rich and creamy flavour which is truly unique. The flavours and texture of our sheep milk products are appealing, and their composition has been very carefully developed to please every palate.
