Can I drink goat's milk if I'm lactose intolerant?

There is slightly less lactose in goat's milk, 9 grams per cup compared to 12 grams in cow's milk. If you are lactose intolerant and would like to try goat's milk, start with a small serving with meals. The protein in goat's milk is similar to that of cow's milk. For that reason, people with milk allergies are advised to avoid goat's milk, too.
