If you are looking for a baby formula brand that uses goat milk for your baby with a sensitive tummy or specific dietary needs, Goat Milk Formula is a great option to consider. It’s even made headlines as Khloe Kardashian’s milk of choice for her son Tatum, who had been struggling with digestive issues.

As you can see, we like to think Kendamil is the G.O.A.T. (‘Greatest Of All Time’) of goat formulas! Let’s get into the science to explain why this formula is so special …
A2 Goat Milk
Natural goat milk fats have more short fatty acid chains that are easier for little tummies to break down versus vegetable oils such as palm oil. Lactose forms the same natural, digestible carbohydrate as found in breast milk.
When mammalian milk comes into contact with the acidic environment of your baby's stomach, a remarkable transformation occurs: curds are formed. These curds can vary in consistency, with some milk types yielding slightly firmer curds, while goat’s milk produces smaller and softer curds.
Basically, when babies digest milk, these proteins form little lumps (the curds) in the tummy. In our goat milk, these lumps are softer and tinier. This is thanks to the unique A2 proteins found in goat milk, the same beta-casein protein structure as found in breast milk. The A2 proteins found in goat milk break down more easily thanks to them being soft and small, meaning naturally gentler digestion for your baby.
Goat milk contains more of these A2 beta-caseins as well as selenium, compared to cow’s milk.
Even better, we add goat whey to our formula. Like cow’s milk, goat milk is a casein protein-dominant milk, so by adding additional goat whey, we rebalance the protein ratio to be whey dominant. Why is this important? Well, studies have shown that a whey dominant protein ratio, along with the softer and smaller A2 curds, is closer to that of breast milk compared to cow’s milk.
GOS (galacto-oligosaccharides) is categorised as a form of dietary fibre, which produces short chain fatty acids in the colon - the essential food source for intestinal flora. This is a complex system of bacteria keeping the gut, and the rest of the body, functioning. Studies have shown that more gut microbiota in the intestinal tract is great for supporting the growth of the good bacteria that naturally live in our gut.

Remember, every baby's needs are different, and it's important to consult your GP if you have any worries surrounding your baby’s health - like milk intolerances or allergies - before making any changes to your baby's diet. If your baby is diagnosed by a healthcare professional to have a cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA) or is otherwise sensitive to cow's milk, we recommend discussing with your doctor the infant formula most suited to your baby’s needs. Goat milk formulas are not recommended for children with a confirmed diagnosis of cow milk protein allergy (CMPA).
By staying informed and considering your baby's individual requirements, you can make the best choices for your little one's health and well-being.
