Children who are allergic to normal dairy products can drink milk from donkeys with a group of Italian researchers stating that donkey's milk is less fattening and more nutritious than cow's milk.

Researchers from the University of Naples compared donkey's milk and cow's milk and found that while both of them gave out the same amount of energy, cow's milk was responsible for increasing the metabolism and therefore linked to weight gain.

Also donkey's milk was found to reduce the number of triglycerides or unhealthy fat that increase the risk of heart disease.

Since donkey's milk is similar to human breast milk, the researchers suggested that it is better than using formula milk for infants.
