Best Baa Dairy Nutritional Information

Sheep milk is delicious AND nutritious.  As detailed in the table below, sheep milk is high in protein, packed with calcium and loaded with all the B vitamins.  For those sensitive to cow milk, sheep milk is often an alternative.  It freezes well and can be stored 4-6 months in residential freezers.

Sheep milk maintains the same volume when converted to yogourt creating a richer, creamier product without the use of thickening additives.  When used for cheese, the moisture and fat content of sheep products are comparable to their cow and goat equivalents.  However, minerals such as calcium and magnesium remain higher as a result of less whey being created during the cheese making process.
