The value of yogurt for sheep's milk

Few people regularly consume sheep's milk yogurt. However, in the coming years, ewe milk yoghurt could be a useful alternative to dairy products to which more and more consumers are allergic (8% of food allergies).

Sheep's milk is the most energetic of milks and contains up to twice as many minerals as other milks such as calcium, phosphorus and zinc, and vitamin B is the same.

The proteins in sheep's milk are indeed very different from those in cow's milk (absence, in particular, of beta-lactoglobulin, one of the most allergenic proteins in cow's milk) and apparently easier to digest, which leads doctors and paediatricians to recommend to their patients to consume this type of yoghurt instead.

Another advantage of sheep's milk is that it contains three times more linolenic acid (omega 3 precursor) than its cow's milk cousin and three types of milk ferments (one of which is not present in cow's milk yogurt): streptococcus, lactophilus and bulgaricus. Rich in protein, it is also an ally of sportsmen.

Good for your health, sheep's milk yoghurt is also good to taste, as sweet and creamy as cow's milk yoghurt.

The only drawback of sheep's milk yogurt is its high price, which is simply explained by the fact that a sheep produces about fifteen times less milk than a cow every year. When it comes from organic farming, this milk is produced by animals all from herds that have never received hormones to depersonalize their reproduction. It is important. Remember that these yoghurts are to be stored between 0 °C and 6 °C.
