Goat's milk products becoming more available in Canada
This article from the Canadian Press focuses on goat's milk products and their growing presence in North America, especially Canada. This is great news for the cheese industry, and consumers alike:
The dairy goat industry is growing by leaps and bounds in Canada, particularly in Ontario and Quebec. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada estimated goat milk production country-wide at more than 21 million litres in 2004. Today, estimates put production at close to 18 million litres in Ontario alone.
The same sorts of products that are made from cow milk are also made from goat milk — homogenized, two per cent, one per cent, skim, organic and chocolate milk, all types of cream, buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, eggnog, ice cream and sherbet. And more products are being introduced all the time.
