DISCONTINUED: Donkey Milk from Italy: pasteurized, freeze dried, & shipped to your door
PLEASE READ: We will not be ordering more of the Italian Milk after these are gone. We are hearing reports that children who have tried both the Italian and the Azores freeze dried milk are seeing greater progress on the milk from the Azores. However, the milk from the Azores has a stronger, grassier flavor. If you are currently using the Italian milk and would like to continue, or slowly switch to the milk from the Azores, we suggest stocking up now.
Because raw donkey milk from our Oklahoma Donkey Dairy is only available for purchase on our farm (FDA regulations prohibit raw milk from being shipped across state lines), we partnered with Eurolactis to be their exclusive distributor of European Donkey Milk (Onalat®). This is freeze dried and pasteurized and comes in a vacuum sealed package, so we can ship it anywhere in the USA.
This is 100 grams of pasteurized, freeze dried 100% donkey milk, which, when reconstituted equals approximately 1 liter of liquid donkey milk.
Please reconstitute using bottled Fiji brand water or pure, filtered water. You can also use in smoothies, sprinkle over applesauce, or put in gel capsules and take in small amounts. Please read the information on herxheimer reactions and why it's extremely important for those with health issues to start with a very small amount of milk and increase slowly. (For example: our daughters drink 1/2 cup, 2x a day. Some children only need a few tablespoons or even a teaspoon a day. This isn't like cow milk or goat milk, but it is the closest in composition to human breast milk. For more testimonials and information please go here.)
****If your family is under financial hardship and you have a sick child in need of donkey milk but cannot afford it, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Powdered Donkey Milk Donation Request" in the subject. Please tell us your story and your financial need for requesting milk money donations. We do our best to be good stewards of the milk money donations that individuals give on behalf of sick children, and try to make sure they go to the families that truly need them most. We don't have a staff or an agency to handle this, and this is not a government funded program, so we depend on the honesty and integrity of those requesting donations. Please understand that if you take advantage of this option and don't truly need it, you are taking milk away from families that truly need it and can't afford it....single moms, parents who lost jobs, etc. (Translation: If you still pay for cable, drive a brand new car, and buy Starbucks every day, but "can't afford" donkey milk for your baby...this might apply to you. Dave Ramsey can help. Just saying.)

"Onalat® Powder" Donkey's milk is the result of years of food industry R&D. "Onalat® Powder" is exclusively composed of whole Donkey's milk from Eurolactis-supervised farms. The use of lyophilization to make powdered Donkey's milk is one of Eurolactis' advantages, and the process has undergone strict selection criteria. This technique helps best preserve the organoleptic and nutritional aspects of Donkey's milk. "Onalat® Powder" contains as much Omega 3 as breast milk and approximately twice as much as cow's milk. -Eurolactis
Science of Donkey Milk:
"The nutritional and cosmetic benefits of donkey's milk have for the most part been recognized since ancient times. This page intends to answer questions based on the recognized scientific studies on the topic conducted over recent years. Donkey's milk has several benefits to human health. Its pH is near neutral, but it is higher than that of cow's milk (7.18). Its high lysozyme content and its relatively low casein and phosphate contents are the most likely explanation for the low levels of microbial contamination found in Donkey's milk. It has very low levels of bacteria: 4.46 log cfu/ml. These values only increase slightly in later stages of lactation, to 5.2 log cfu/ml. Donkey's milk is closer to human milk than cow's milk. It is lower in casein than cow's milk, which gives it a low risk of causing casein allergies. Recent clinical studies confirm that Donkey's milk is a safe, appropriate response to complicated severe allergies to cow's milk in children. It has practically the same lactose content as human milk, significantly less than cow's milk, which is significant, since lactose plays a leading role in human intolerance to milk; Its relatively high level of essential fatty acids (Omega 3, 6, 9) gives Donkey's milk an obvious advantage over cow's milk; again, in this respect, it is more similar to breast milk, making it beneficial to infant brain and retina development; Since it has higher Calcium and Phosphorous levels than human milk and sufficient levels of casein, Donkey's milk is important to building bones and to fighting against osteoporosis. However, in this respect, cow's milk shows better numbers, but it is more difficult to digest; Donkey's milk is rich in vitamins: taking all this data as a whole, Donkey's milk is an excellent alternative to breast milk. Its physical and chemical properties make it closer to breast milk than cow's milk. It is better tolerated by infants than cow's milk and may be an ideal substitute when breast milk is not available. It is the natural ally of mothers who do not produce enough milk to breast feed their babies. In addition, and in hygienic terms, it could be useful to controlling nutritional risks". -Eurolactis
