im curious if anyone has any links to sources for learning about different animals that have been used for dairy throughout history and specifics on those animals?
such as natural habitats?
herd animal or happy alone?
needs lots of space or can do ok with limited space?
nutrition info in milk?
cheese's made with the milk?
history of dairy use?
i tried a google but of course only pulled up some dairy COW breeds and information lol
i know that there are other animals can be used such as
cattle on those tow there are plenty of sites on dairy animals of that type and what not if you look but there are other animals i am aware have been used for dairy but i cant seem to find any information on them and what is in there milk nutrition-wise
sheep (i find there are lots of cheese made and i found one site on LIMITED nutrition info, showi9ng one or two things compared to cows milk but i cant find any info on it being drank and whether it tastes decent or not)
water buffalo ( i know it was traditionally what they made mozerella from but i dont know much else)
camel - dont know much of anything other than that some have used it for dairy
again this is just asking if anyone either knows any of these answers or if they know of any sources for finding this info out and feel free to discuss anything related:)
im gonna post nutritional info that i have found about each animal on the site that tyler linked to:
*please keep in mind this is based off of this sites info on BNI, and that as far as i know there is no such thing as perfectly balanced food, this also goes over macronutrients and only one or two micronutrients*
has: 4.0 ( im not sure of what, perhaps % DV?)
ideal amount according to this site is: 5.0
i think ill do each animal in a seperate post... either that or ill just edit this post later
i dont understand all of these numbers to be honest with you but im posting them in hopes that someone else will find them useful and can perhaps tell me, based on these numbers which one is the best nutritionally, if any:)
True Mozzarella cheese is made from water buffalo. Serious Italian chefs, in Italy, would not think of using (ersatz) mozzarella made from cow's milk. Here, in the U.S. true mozzarella is rather hard to find. The cheese is from the regions around Napoli, with Mondragone being considered by many to produce some of the finest.
i would imagine that any information on moose milking was probably done as an experiment to test nutritional value and market potential - rather than an age old practice that somebody learned of, but im really not sure
