Not Yet Medically Proven

All animal dairy milk products (Goat, Cow, Camel, Sheep, Buffalo) contain lactose. Because our buffalo milk is unadulterated and non-homogenized the lactose content present in our buffalo milk products appears to be more easily recognised by one’s body and therefore more easily digested.

With regards to allergies and lactose intolerance, we do not have Official data to support our claims. However, based upon our own readings and information provided to us verbally by both medical practitioners and customers themselves, we have never heard of anybody who is allergic to water buffalo milk.

We have many customers who are allergic to practically everything including soy milk and rice milk, but are able to safely consume our products without any problems. They also find our products an agreeable change from goats’ milk.

Buffalo milk tests are now included in the allergy test battery and so allergies to buffalo milk are now easily determinable. For those suffering with lactose intolerance, we recommend giving our products a go. If unsure, we advise talking to your GP or nutritionist.

Our products are also suitable for vegetarians as we only use microbial rennet in the production of our goods.
