It’s 2016, and many are realising that cow’s milk - especially for lactose intolerants - isn’t always the most ideal milk option.
Apparently, the milk we should actually be drinking isn’t soya or almond milk, but donkey’s milk.
Not only is it lower in fat than cow’s milk, but it contains inflammation-reducing fatty acids that help our heart health.
“Biochemically, donkey’s milk is actually closer to human milk than cow’s milk with a similar protein, mineral and fatty acid composition,” nutritionist Charlotte Stirling-Reed told The Huffington Post UK.
“It’s also reported to have many functional properties, but the truth is we don’t have enough research to say much more than that at this point.”
According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation donkey milk has “particular nutrional benefits” as well as being a better alternative for those intolerant to cow’s milk.
Don’t all of you rush out of your front doors in search of donkey’s milk, however - fresh milk is only currently available in Italy. But now that we’ve made this discovery, who knows when it might come to the UK.
