Eurolactis doesn’t plan to stop at milk: It’s also launching a high-end donkey milk chocolate bar, made by a master Swiss chocolatier.
Honestly, I’ve never tasted donkey milk, and I hadn’t heard of ingesting it, or products made from it, until very recently. So I did a little investigating. Here are six interesting things I learned. There are accounts of Hippocrates, the father of medicine, extolling the virtues of donkey milk. There are also records of its popularity in ancient Rome, and it was used medicinally in France up to the 20th century. In other words, drinking donkey milk is not unprecedented.
Compared to other types of animal milk, the donkey variety is actually closest to human breast milk, based on its pH level and nutritional makeup. It also contains less total fat than cow’s milk, and packs more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. I actually found a handful of studies in the National Library of Medicine archive related to donkey milk. After testing the product, these researchers concluded that although donkey milk contains a high amount of lactose, when it’s fermented into yogurt it’s a viable option for people with lactose or cow’s milk intolerance. While it may seem odd to many of us, the reality is people around the world are taking advantage of this milk and its benefits. Bologna, Italy, is sold to pediatric units, for children who can’t consume cow’s milk. I also read on various skincare forums that many people saw positive improvements in their eczema and with their sensitive skin after switching to donkey milk soap.
