What is Capra Cream?
Capra Cream goat milk cream starts as fresh goat milk harvested from our happy goats on our farm in the Pacific Northwest. It is then run through a cream separator that extracts the cream from the milk using no chemicals. We dry this concentrated cream using a Refractance Window Dryer® which uses minimal heat and refracted light to provide a shelf-stable, wholesome, and delicious goat milk cream. The dried flakes are then simply added to the bottle with no further processing applied.
Why is CLA important?
Goat milk cream possesses several important essential fatty acids the most significant being Conjugated Linoleic Acid also abbreviated as CLA (see Fig 1). CLA is well known in the health and nutrition world and has been regarded for its health benefits for decades. CLA is only found in the meat and milk of grass-fed ruminants (cows, goats, deer). Goat milk cream also contains a much higher level of medium-chain fatty acids then cow milk cream.
Important: Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is only found in grass-fed animals such as goats, cows, and sheep.
Why isn’t the goat milk cream in powder form?
Capra Cream contains far too much fat to be milled using our available technology. The flakes can be easily ground with a mortar/pestle and simply added to a smoothie or hot coffee.
“…extra good fats. Win win!”
My husband loves this cream in his coffee and I love adding it to my baby’s smoothies to give her some extra good fats. Win win! I also wanted to add that I have been using a mortar and pestle to grind the flakes into a powder…makes the cream blend better in everything. – Briana Ku in California
