Low Lactose Milk formula for hand-rearing all animal species including puppies, kittens, lambs, piglets, calves, foals, cria and marsupials.
ABOUT LOW LACTOSE MILKS
Low lactose milk products are normally prepared from cow's milk using the enzyme lactase to convert milk lactose into its component sugars, glucose and galactose. This process does not alter the nature or composition of protein or fat in cow's milk, which can be quite inappropriate for other mammal species.
Milk protein is composed of two main fractions, casein and whey protein. Cow's milk protein contains about 20% whey protein. Protein in the milk of animals such as puppies, kittens, foals, piglets and marsupials contains up to 50% whey protein. Whey protein has more essential amino acids than casein so products made simply from modified cow's milk are likely to be nutritionally deficient for other species.
The fat in cow's milk is about 40% unsaturated and 60% saturated. Cow's milk is also low in several essential omega-3 fatty acids. Fat in the milk of many other animals can be up to 65% unsaturated and contain high levels of linolenic acid, an important omega-3 fatty acid.
Formula One is a superior low lactose milk product for more animals because:
Formula One is made from individual ingredients blended together to produce a milk that is low in lactose yet contains more whey protein, unsaturated fat and omega-3 fatty acids than lactase modified cow's milk products.
Formula One contains added taurine, an essential nutrient for cats, about 50% whey protein and 65% unsaturated fat of which some 10% is omega-3 fatty acids
Formula One is available in 500g and 1kg poly-lined cartons with measuring scoop and 5kg, 10kg and 20kg poly-lined polypropylene sacks. (Please contact us for pricing on the 10kg and 20kg sizes). A measuring scoop is provided.
