Foremilk, the milk released at the beginning of a feed, is watery, low in fat and high in carbohydrates relative to the creamier hindmilk which is released as the feed progresses.
Goat's milk does not contain agglutinin, which means that the fat globules in goat's milk do not cluster together like they do in cow's milk, which makes goat's milk easier for an infant to digest.

 Milk Allergy in Infants
Most children who are allergic to cow's milk also react to goat's milk and sheep's milk, and some of them are also allergic to the protein in soy milk.
Typically, a milk allergy goes away on its own by the time a child is 3 to 5 years old, but some children never outgrow it.
A milk allergy is not the same thing as lactose intolerance, the inability to digest the sugar lactose, which is rare in infants and more common among older kids and adults.

 Dr. Kradjian addresses cow's milk
Cow's milk became "normal." You may be surprised to learn that most of the human beings that live on planet Earth today do not drink or use cow's milk.
There are dozens of studies describing the prompt appearance of cows' milk allergy in children being exclusively breast-fed! The cows' milk allergens simply appear in the mother's milk and are transmitted to the infant.
Here is a quotation from this study: We infer that either the pattern of cows' milk consumption is altered in children who will have insulin dependent diabetes mellitus or, their immunological reactivity to proteins in cows' milk is enhanced, or the permeability of their intestines to cows' milk protein is higher than normal.

 chemistry and physics
Milk fatty acids originate either from microbial activity in the rumen, and transported to the secretory cells via the blood and lymph, or from synthesis in the secretory cells.
Homogenization of milk prevents this creaming by decreasing the diameter and size distribution of the fat globules, causing the speed of rise to be similar for the majority of globules.
Milk and skim milk, excepting cooled raw milk, exhibit Newtonian behavior, in which the viscosity is independent of the rate of shear.

 Brazil: Coconut Milk
A thick, rich milk is produced from the first squeezing of the gratings; a thinner milk is derived from a second round of squeezing.
A less efficient method of making thick coconut milk is to put the grated coconut in a sieve, wet it with warm water, and press out the milk with a spoon.
Thin milk is made by soaking the same wrapped gratings in 2 to 3 cups of warm water and repeating the squeezing procedure.

 Cow's Milk Protein Allergy
Occasionally, though, breastfed children develop cow's milk allergy when they react to the slight amount of cow's milk protein that's passed along from their mother's diet into her breastmilk.
It's extremely important to know for certain if your child has a cow's milk protein allergy because if he does, you'll have to be very careful about making sure that all milk and milk products are removed from his diet.
When your baby starts eating solid foods, you'll have to be very careful not to give her cow's milk or any food containing milk or milk products for as long as she remains allergic to milk.

 Kitchen Dictionary: Milk
Low-fat milk is available in two types, 2% (98% of the fat has been removed) and 1% (99% fat free).
Most milk sold in the United States is pasteurized, which means the micro-organisms that cause disease (such as salmonella and hepatitis) and spoilage have been destroyed by heating, then quick-cooling the milk.
Most commercial milk products have also been homogenized, meaning the milk fat globules have been broken down until they are evenly and imperceptibly distributed thoughout the milk and the liquid is uniformly smooth.

 Raw Milk Vs. Pasteurized Milk
Recent figures published regarding the spread of tuberculosis by milk show, among other facts, that over a period of five years, during which time 70 children belonging to a special organization received a pint of raw milk daily.
Besides destroying part of the vitamin C contained in raw milk and encouraging growth of harmful bacteria, pasteurization turns the sugar of milk, known as lactose, into beta-lactose — which is far more soluble and therefore more rapidly absorbed in the system, with the result that the child soon becomes hungry again.
Instead of compelling dealers to set up expensive machinery for turning raw milk into something that is definitely not what it sets out to be — a nutritious, health giving food —; let them pass legislation making the dairy-farmers produce clean, raw milk — that is milk pure to drink with all its constituents unaltered.

 Milk
Milk can be thought of as "liquid meat" because of its high protein content which, in concert with other proteins, may actually LEACH calcium from the body.
Exposure to cow's milk protein early in life, when the intestinal tract is immature, sometimes results in the milk protein entering the blood stream where antibodies to this foreign substance, cow's milk, are made by the immune system.
Milk proteins are listed in packaged food products with a variety of names, such as milk solids, skim milk powder, casein, caseinates, whey, and albumin.

 Milk Alternatives- Homemade & Store Bought
Store bought oat, rice, soy, almond, potato and coconut milk is expensive due to shipping costs, a thin market, and the tetra-pack they come in.
Rice milk is also expensive due to the import quotas placed on rice to subsidized a miniscule number of US rice farmers at a massive cost to consumers.
In any case, making your own milk at home will be less expensive than storebought milk of any sort, from cows or grains.

 MyPyramid.gov - Inside The Pyramid - What foods are included in the milk, yogurt, and cheese (milk) group?
Foods made from milk that retain their calcium content are part of the group, while foods made from milk that have little to no calcium, such as cream cheese, cream, and butter, are not.
If you choose milk or yogurt that is not fat-free, or cheese that is not low-fat, the fat in the product counts as part of the discretionary calorie allowance.
If sweetened milk products are chosen (flavored milk, yogurt, drinkable yogurt, desserts), the added sugars also count as part of the discretionary calorie allowance.

 Milk is Milk
The organic milk, like all national organic brands, was ultra-pasteurized for extended shelf life.
What undermines the organic label is USDA's continued head-in-the-sand approach to enforcing their own guidelines that milk labels not be misleading, despite a litany of complaints and pleas for direction from local regulatory agencies.
Milk is milk, and it is no better or worse as a result of the label on the front of the carton.

 Milk and the Cancer Connection
Concerns about the safety of milk from BST-treated cows were raised as early as 1988 by scientists in both England and the United States(14,15,17-22).
One of the main concerns is the high levels of IGF-1 found in milk from treated cows; estimates vary from twice as high to 10 times higher than in normal cow's milk(13,14,23).
Whether IGF-1 in milk is digested and broken down into its constituent amino acids or whether it enters the intestine intact is a crucial factor.
