Cow's milk allergy is not so widespread, but when it affects children mothers have to find a healthy milk substitute that gives them peace of mind. To avoid milk allergy symptoms those who are allergic to cow's milk protein should avoid any contact to milk.
Mare's milk can be an alternative for adults suffering from cow's milk allergy, lactose intolerance, or soy milk allergy. Parents should seek advice of a doctor. Mare's milk is popular in northern European countries, but in North America it is still difficult to find a supplier.
Mare's milk is easier to digest than cow's milk. Its protein composition is closer to human milk than to cow's milk. It has a lower fat content, vitamin A and four times more vitamin C. It contains magnesium, potassium, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorous and sodium. Mongolian have drank lots of fermented mare's milk and used it fresh for their salty tea for centuries. This could explain how they survived with only a few vegetables in their diet.
The Belgian farmer who first sold me mare's milk was really enthusiastic about it. He told me that he had suffered from severe candida for many years and that he had cured himself drinking 250 ml or 8,5 ounces of mare's milk a day. For a year and a half he traveled all way to Netherlands to buy his precious mare's milk. Finally he himself established a mare's milk farm and he is now selling mare's milk succesfully.
I did not have such digestive complaints, but I wanted to taste it. And so I drank a glass of mare's milk every day for one month. Its texture is indeed thinner than cow's milk, and it is sweeter and very light on stomach.
In northern Europe mare's milk is already a substitute for acne sufferers who prefer not to associate dairy and acne. Why not try mare's milk if you have trouble digesting cow's milk, acne breakouts, skin complaints, or simply to add more variety to your food?
