“Going Goat”- 4 Benefits of Adding tera’s® Goat Whey Protein to Your Routine
At tera’s®, we’re all about providing you with delicious, pure nutrition. What’s equally important: that our protein makes you feel as good as it tastes. For those with dietary preferences or dairy allergies and intolerances, our goat whey could provide you with both. Here are four reasons that you should add tera’s® goat whey protein to your daily routine.
Goat milk is much closer in composition to human milk than cow’s milk. Because of this similarity, those with cow’s milk sensitivities, intolerances, or allergies may be able to consume goat whey protein without a problem. There is also less lactose in goat’s milk, meaning those with intolerances may be able to gain the nutritional benefits of whey protein, without discomfort.
We urge anyone who is concerned about milk allergies to speak with a health care provider prior to trying goat whey protein powder.
Essential Amino Acids
The building blocks of proteins are called amino acids. Your body can make many of these amino acids on its own with proper dietary fuel, but there are nine that your body cannot make. Thus, you must get those nine amino acids from your diet. These are called essential amino acids because it’s essential that you consume them. A source of protein is only considered complete if it provides the body with all of those nine essential amino acids on its own. Like cow whey, goat whey is naturally a complete source of protein; it provides you with all of the essential amino acids that your body needs. In contrast, most vegetarian protein sources are not complete.
When you consume a protein supplement, you also should seek a complete source of protein rich in the amino acid leucine, which is known to stimulate muscle growth. Whey protein is known to be one of the best sources of this amino acid.

All the Same Nutritional Benefits of Whey
The nutrient content in goat whey protein is similar to cow whey protein. That means, there are similar amounts of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. An added benefit? Goat whey also contains more potassium per serving than cow whey protein.
