I have worked in poor communities and one challenge we meet is to find subsititutes for nutritious but expensive suppliments to manage moderate malnutrition. Over the years we have commonly used community foods. I am thinking of the community women cooperatives to produce goat milk as a therapeutic milk. My concern is on the protein and sodium levels in the milk and the HACCP. How best can the milk be processed to conform to almost be safe levels. The women will process and package using simple but safe technologies. Has any research been done in this area of using goat milk. Any experiences in other communities?
