Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Wild horse milk is known for its health benefits. Is it a myth or fact? Research results from the Center for Biomedical and Basic Health Technology show that wild horse milk contains protein, carbohydrates, lactose, fat, calcium, and minerals, as in cow’s milk and goat’s milk.
Prof. Ali Khomsan, Professor of Food and Nutrition at the Bogor Agricultural University, explained that wild horse milk is thinner than cow’s milk, which means it has lower fat content than cow’s milk. That way, wild horse milk is relatively safe for people with high cholesterol levels.
“So if it is called milk that can prevent cholesterol, actually it can happen because wild horse milk does not contain high fat,” said Prof Ali to Liputan6.com, Friday, August 13, 2021.
He added that wild horse milk which is mostly produced in East Nusa Tenggara and West Nusa Tenggara is also rich in antibacterial properties. This content makes the milk does not require a pasteurization or sterilization process so that it is durable and does not go stale quickly.
“The antibacterial will make the wild horse’s milk more durable and it is also called milk that can carry out the natural fermentation process,” continued Ali.
In addition, the antibacterial content is also good for strengthening the immune system. “Especially if it’s Covid season right now,” he added.
