100% Sourcing from Own Farms in Pure New Zealand
New Zealand is the kingdom of best quality dairy products. It is known for its balmy weather - the summer is warm, moist and sunny, and the winter is pleasant. Waikato region, where Karihome originates from, has its longest river in New Zealand. With this nourishing environment, pasture thrives and our goats are particularly well bred, producing rich nutritious milk.
At our 72 own farms in Waikato, our farm owners take good care of our goats, providing them best environment possible and following strict New Zealand and DGC code of farm practice and welfare. Sustainability weighs heavy on our minds.
Besides the passion and sense of responsibility of providing best quality goat’s milk, our farmers also have small labs and technical proficiency at the farms to conduct tests at any time to maintain milk quality. All goats are monitored, making sure each of them is well taken care of and its milk quality is in its best condition.
Natural Blessing from Milk Secretion Differences
Unlike cows, goats have the same secretion method as humans. More bioactives are secreted with goat milk, such as Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Polyamine, and Free Amino Acids. The level of natural nutrients like Nucleotides, Taurine, as well as Glutamic Acid are even 3 times higher than cow milk’s, helping to enhance protection from within and build solid foundation for mental and physical development.
3 Times More Nutrients from Natural Goat Milk than Cow Milk
Unique Molecular Structure - The Key to Better Digestion
Goat milk protein contains more β-casein which forms fine and porous milk curds. Its unique structure allows more efficient digestion of goat milk protein and is easier to be absorbed, protecting baby’s sensitive gut.
In general, cow milk formula needs additional processing to make its milk protein smaller or easier to be digested, such as adding whey or hydrolyzing it. As goat milk proteins are naturally fine and delicate, no additional processing is required. Fine milk proteins are easily digested and absorbed.
Goat milk fat contains essential nutrition that supports baby’s growth: Goat milk contains twice as much Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) than cow milk. MCFA makes milk fat easier to be digested and converted to energy faster. Natural Sn-2 PA is easily absorbed & digested and does not cause hard stools & calcium soap formation. Natural Sphingolipid, Vitamin A, D, E, K are naturally inherent and rich in goat milk.
