There are many misconceptions regarding yak milk, mainly due to the fact that most of the people are unaware about its benefits. The people residing in the high altitudes of the Himalayan region in Nepal have known about the properties of yak’s milk for centuries and have been consuming it because of its extensive health benefits. Moreover, do you know that yak milk is not only beneficial for humans but also very good for your dog’s health?
Nepal has been the first country in Asia to establish a cheese industry and the only country in the world producing yak cheese until the 1980s. After 1980, many other countries have started rearing yak and using its milk as a staple diet. Yaks cater to many other benefits too, including dung for fuel, draught power, meat and fibre. Each individual yak produces little milk in comparison to cow, so only when large herds are present one can expect to obtain milk in large quantities. Yak produces more milk in summer than in winter. This is the reason why herders store the milk by turning it into butter or cheese for further use.
One of the reasons why yak milk is considered as the healthiest among all is due to the fact that yaks graze freely in natural pastures where wild grasses and herbs of high medicinal value grow, thus becoming the staple diet of the yaks. A healthy diet results in the production of healthy milk, with great nutritional value. Research shows that the amino acids and calcium content in yak milk is 15 percent higher than in cow’s milk. There is also considerably a higher amount of vitamin A in yak’s milk. The milk produced has its own sweet fragrance and the taste is also somewhat sweet, even if you do not add sugar.
