I just fell in love with a new kind of organic milk. No, it’s not soy—although I like that, too—and it’s not almond, either. And although it comes from a cow, it has about as much in common with the milk I used to drink as raw juice has with the stuff that comes in a box with a stuck-on straw. Because this milk is simply delicious. It’s rich, creamy and lip-smacking good. After decades of limiting the stuff to coffee, this makes me want to drink milk in a glass—or a jug. What is it? Raw milk, from the Organic Pastures dairy in California. But is it safe?
I talk with many parents concerned about cow milk intolerance. Usually the diagnosis is a process of elimination: A colicky baby seems better after her breastfeeding mother stops drinking milk. But for formula-fed children, getting the balance right can be frustrating. Most alternative formulas are soy-based, which can also lead to congestion, rashes and digestive discomfort. That’s why I was so excited to discover Kabrita, a new line of GMO-free, goat milk based toddler formula and three toddler-approved flavors of Goat Milk Yogurt and Fruit that are naturally easy to digest—especially for children with cow milk intolerance.
