This is a huge development for a small business like ours!  It means that any Super Valu or Centra in the country can now order our sheep's yogurt from the Musgrave warehouse and have it on their shelf within 48 hours.

Gut health and mental health

What is gut health? What is the microbiome? Why are they important? A layman's summary.

There is a lot of talk around about gut health, the microbiome, microbiota, the second brain, diet for immunity, gut health and immunity  etc.etc.  Because Velvet Cloud is a live fermented product, these topics are obviously of interest to us. This post in an attempt to summarise in layman’s language some of the most recent thinking and developments in the area.

Gut Health Microbes

What exactly is gut health and why does it matter?

Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. Looking after the health of the gut and maintaining the right balance of these microorganisms is vital for physical and mental health, immunity, and more.

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

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

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.
