Depending on your personal dietary objectives or constraints it is best approaching dairy with as much knowledge of your supplier as possible, ensuring that best practices are followed & that you are buying from a reputable source.
Best case is to buy from Grass Fed cattle raised on an organic diet. Some people tolerate the Goats milk better than Cow’s, due to the proteins present in the milk.
If you are uncertain proceed with moderation, and see what works for you. Always remembering when it comes to animal products ‘You are what you eat, eats’!
