NUTRITION

There are so many amazing benefits to goat's milk, the most widely consumed milk in the world!

  • Goat’s milk A2 like protein and unique proteins when compared to cow's milk
  • Goat's milk is higher in prebiotic oligosaccharides (naturally occurring carbohydrates that feed the good bacteria in our gut), in fact there are six common HMOs in Shegoa milk and breast milk
  • Lower in lactose (the natural sugar found in milk) than cow's milk
  • Goat's milk has high levels of phospholipids and medium chain fatty acids to support gut health and assist with brain development
  • Naturally high in vitamins and minerals that support growth and development such as; Vitamin A, B, and C, Magnesium, Calcium

You may not have heard much about sheep's milk before, but here are some amazing benefits.

  • Sheep milk gets digested at a faster rate when compared to cow's milk.
  • It is a great tasting milk, with a sweet nutty flavour.
  • High in protein, in fact, the highest compared to cow and goat, making it extremely important for growth and development and a fantastic source of energy.

  • A rich combination of nutrients and minerals that has proven extremely useful for the immune system.

Shegoa is the world’s first Super Milk!

Nearly 9 out of 10 children aged under two have had digestive issues, our goal is to help parents and bubs overcome digestive issues through combining these two amazing milks to create a super milk. A formula that combines the highest quality sheep and goat milk to provide a complete, highly digestible, gentle, and great tasting formula while removing many of the nasties that cause upset tummies like allergens, palm oil and vegetable oil (from our Stage 3).

Goat and sheep milk have many properties that make them easier for tiny tummies to digest. Studies have found that sheep milk will digest in 45 minutes compared to 4 hours for cow’s milk. Sheep and goat milk also contains very small fat molecules and unique proteins when compared to cow’s milk.

There is no denying that breastmilk is nutritionally the best milk available for your baby, however it is also true that not all mums can or want to breastfeed exclusively. We have worked hard to ensure Shegoa has many digestive benefits and limiting the nasties that can upset tiny tummies.

Absolutely! Our premium ingredients are scientifically formulated to support thriving babies and toddlers. Infant formulas must comply with strict recipes dictated by Australian and New Zealand food safety standards. Shegoa meets these standards and includes more than 17 vitamins and minerals to provide an ultra-nourishing, complete nutritional formula, it also has other key added ingredients like DHA, ARA, FOS, GOS and HMOs.

Prebiotics are the food that bacteria in your tummy feed on. Prebiotics can help your bub to absorb more water from their gut, preventing constipation and bloating. Goat’s milk is particularly high in prebiotic oligosaccharides (oligos for short) and in fact Shegoa has six times the amount of oligos when compared to regular cow’s milk. These prebiotic oligos are also structurally closer to breast milk prebiotics and research studies show that these oligos help to start your baby’s life with a healthy gut flora and are excellent for promoting fewer digestive issues and upset tummies. On top of the natural prebiotic benefits from the Shegoa milk, we also add FOS, GOS and HMOs (Human Milk Oligosaccharides). HMOs are the third most abundant ingredient in breast milk and are responsible for developing a healthy gut micro flora to assist with gut health, wellbeing and immunity.

Our full list of ingredients can be found here

DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid that helps support developing brains and eyes, it is essential for the growth and development of the brain in the first year.

HMO (Human Milk Oligosaccharides) are the third largest component found in breast milk and support immunity, wellbeing and gut health. These are critical to the development of young children.

Vegetable oils are used to provide the essential fatty acids in infant formula. These fatty acids assist with many developmental functions. Because of the high fat content in sheep’s milk, in our stage 3 we do not require these added vegetable oils. Across the range we have also removed palm oil as a commitment to our sustainability values.

Shegoa is not certified organic however our sheep and cows are grass fed and our formula is made of the cleanest ingredients available.

Please seek healthcare professional advice in relation to any allergen, intolerance or digestive issue that your baby has developed.
