There’s been a bunch of buzz recently about fermented foods for people. Did you know that pets can benefit in much the same way from some fermented foods?
We’re not talking about the type of fermentation used in making beer or bread. Although the process is similar, we’re more interested in the type of fermentation used to make cheese or yogurt. Let’s take a quick look at that process and some of its benefits.
Fermentation is a simple, natural process which converts starch and sugars to natural, beneficial bacterias that bodies crave and utilize. You’re likely already familiar with some common foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, and kombucha. All of these foods have been fermented and are packed with vitamins, enzymes, probiotics and more. Yum!
Fermentation offers similar benefits to our pets
One of the simplest ways to offer those benefits to pets is with fermented Goat’s Milk. Raw goat milk is one of the most nutritiously complete foods available. Goat’s milk is much more nutritious and digestible than cow’s milk. Goat’s milk contains none of the potential allergens of cow’s milk. In most parts of the world, far more goat’s milk is consumed than cow’s milk because of its superior nutrient content.
When goat’s milk is fermented, it increases the vitamin, enzyme and probiotic content and further enhances its nutritional benefits. Fermentation increases the bioavailability of nutrients which act as an immune system booster. This can often provide allergy relief, along with a host of other benefits. It also promotes dental and bone health, and some studies have shown it effective in fighting cancer.

Answers Goat’s Milk is one of the first widely available, commercially produced raw, fermented goat milk products produced specifically for pets. It is made from grass-fed, certified humane raised and handled goats fed organic, antibiotic-free, non-GMO diets. More than a few years ago, we wrote about Answers shortly after it was introduced.
Answers Goat’s Milk comes frozen in easy to use cartons. The carton can be thawed on a countertop in 6 hours, or over 3 days in the refrigerator. Once thawed, it should be kept refrigerated and used within 10-14 days.
Simply pour the milk over your pet’s daily meals or use it as a special treat on its own. The milk has a rather strong and distinct smell, which most pets find quite attractive (although you may not).
