  • Goat butter vs Cows butter

    Could someone explain the difference between the 2.
    I have bought some goat butter just wanted to try and have something different ?
    Is there less lactose in goat dairy or something ???

    Fat particles in goats milk are smaller & doesn't separate like cows (floats to the top).
    Butter is mostly fat & my understanding is less lactose then milk

      Obviously the former wouldn't matter with butter.

      As to the latter, does butter have much lactose in it anyway?

        Goat butter vs Cows butter

        Everything goat tastes a bit more gamey to me. As to the nutritional profile... it is different (goat dairy supposedly has more) and those who are sensitive to cow dairy might not be so to goat dairy.


        Butter still has some milk solids in it. clarified butter has almost zero.

          Supposedly those that are sensitive to cow's milk may be able to tolerate goat's milk better. You would think the same applies to butter and cheese; although, as mentioned, butter has very little in it other than fat. A person would have to be extremely sensitive to dairy if even butter bothered them.

            yes, despite having access to goat milk (and therefore cream) for some years i still prefer cow's milk which is frustrating because raw cow's milk is £2.5/litre (about 2.5x normal whole milk)

              We get raw goat milk and it is naturally homogenized, no cream on top. I don't understand how you get goat butter. Maybe goats in other areas have fattier milk. Where I live goat butter isn't possible.

                making goat butter:

                my understanding is the lactose content is about the same in goat's milk, vs, cow, but the casein is less.

                  Goat butter tastes like goat. I bought it once, but it wasn't worth making a trip to the city to a specialty shop.

                          Goat butter is pure white like Ivory soap and about $20/lb. here.
