AgResearch senior scientist Dr Linda Samuelsson says results of the trial to test the benefits of sheep milk for human consumption should be available next year.
In what is believed to be a world first, AgResearch is about to begin a clinical trial to test the benefits of sheep milk for human digestion.
Some people suffer from digestive issues with milk, and work by AgResearch has demonstrated sheep milk could offer advantages for some in terms of easier digestion and improved nutrition.
”Based on the literature we have seen, there has been no human clinical trial like this before measuring the digestibility of sheep milk,” says AgResearch senior scientist Dr Linda Samuelsson.
