Can a dairy free diet include goat’s milk or sheep's milk?

Can a dairy free diet include goat’s ...

You meet people who say, I am on a dairy free diet but can take sheep's milk cheese or goats milk cheese. But aren't they dairy products too?

Yes both sheep's milk and goat milk products are also dairy but a different type of dairy

A1 milk has A1 type of protein (casein) and A2 milk has A2 type of protein (casein). This is important because the way the milk is broken down and metabolised in the system is different. 

Which mammals produce A1 or A2 or a combination of both depends on the genetics of the particular breed. Humans, sheep, goats and buffalo produce A2 milk, for example. Cattle produce A1 or A2, depending on their genetic makeup. Milk from many of the common breeds of dairy cattle is a mixture of A1 and A2 proteins.

What does sheep’s milk taste like?

What does sheep’s milk taste like?

Although many worry it might taste strong, sheep's milk is actually  mild and creamy with a slightly natural sweet taste.  The reason sheep’s milk tastes creamy and naturally sweet is because it is naturally homogenised, this means that the little fat globules in the sheep’s milk are so small that they float around naturally in the milk giving it that creamy taste. Easier to digest, it has a higher nutritional profile than cow or goats milk and contains A2 protein, meaning many who are senstive to dairy can tolerate it.
