Generally when it comes to dairy animals sheep are not the first that spring to mind, however sheep milk is rich, sweet and very nutritious. When compared to cows and goats milk, sheep milk is higher in total solids and in some minerals, such as calcium, zinc and B group vitamins by up to twice as much.
|5. THE SCIENCE OF SHEEP'S MILK.
Sheep's milk is highly nutritious, richer in vitamins A, B and E, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium than cow's milk. It contains a higher portion of short and medium chain fatty acids, which have recognised health benefits. For example, short-chain fatty acids have little effect on cholesterol in humans and make milk easier to digest.
