Product Review : Karihome

I have received Karihome Goat Whole Milk Powder for a review, it is important for us to drink milk to build strong bones and teeth.



Benefit of Karihome Whole Goat Milk Powder
A. Naturally high in calcium
Goat milk naturally contain more calcium than cow milk
A better source to replenish calcium

B. Naturally high in bioactive compounds
Nucleotide (Boost up immune system)
CPP (increase the solubility and absorption of minerals)
Benefit for children & adult especially elderly with low immune system, indigestion and poor absorption.

C. Hypoallergenic
Has lower allergens than cow milk
Benefit for hypersensitive person & those allergy to cow milk

D. Improve Gastrointestinal health
Goat milk can be digested easier and more readily than cow milk
Goat milk forms a softer, finer curd than cow milk, making digestion and absorption easier
Good for those with gastrointestinal problem such as gastric, colic and indigestion



“Karihome” is a global brand, whose name was inspired by “Karitane”, a local parenting service facility in New Zealand. The members of the facility include doctors, nurses and volunteers. It provides medical care, healthcare consultation, nutritional and parenting advice to parents with infants and toddlers under 5 years old.

Due to our appreciation of Karitane’s vision - “to be the guardian of children’s health, help bring happiness and warmth to every family”, we used the Chinese translation of Karitane, “Karihome”, as the brand name for our milk formula. We hope to demonstrate the Karihome brand spirit “Your nutrition, naturally" to meet infants & toddlers’ nutritional needs.


Breastmilk is the main source of nutrition for newborns. “Karihome” understands parents want the best for their babies, so since the establishment of Karihome in 1991, we have incorporated studies conducted by renowned medical and infant experts internationally to develop products most suitable for the constitution of infants and toddlers in the Asian-Pacific region, and we vow to keep the most stringent quality control. Over the years, we have been importing goat and cow milk powder produced and packaged in New Zealand. Karihome products follow strict milk product processes and hygiene standards mandated by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries. Karihome products are of the highest quality and meet infant and toddlers’ nutritional needs.


Over the years, Karihome has been upholding its brand spirit “Your nutrition, naturally to keep all babies healthy”. As an enterprise that feels the responsibility to feedback to the society, not only do we participate in many charity events, we have also donated dairy products through Eden Social Welfare Foundation, a foundation in Taiwan which shares our views regarding social responsibility, as early as we introduced the product to the Taiwan market. They serve as resources for care of mentally retarded children and spread the love of Karihome to every corner of the society. 


As an enterprise thrives, it is the responsibility of the enterprise to feedback to the society. Karihome is glad to realize this belief through Eden. In the future, we will continue to participate in charity events. We also hope to set an example through our action and encourage more enterprises to devote their resources and help more mentally retarded children and dysfunctional familie

Milk Source and Quality of Karihome
Karihome Goat Milk Formulas are manufactured by the Dairy Goat Co-operative (N.Z.) Ltd., (known as DGC), a farmer-owned co-operative in New Zealand, whose goat milk production reaches 90% of the total output in New Zealand.

Karihome is manufactured in the ideal nourishing environment, New Zealand
New Zealand is known for its balmy weather. The summer is warm, moist and sunny and the winter is pleasant. As a result, goats and cows are particularly well bred and strong in New Zealand. They produce rich nutritious milk. Because of this ideal nourishing environment, pasture in New Zealand grows fast and thrives, which earns New Zealand the title of the kingdom of best dairy products.


Own farms with unique free-range grazing system
Karihome utilizes free range grazing system where fresh grasses are added to the goats’ feed, allowing them to take in the unique nutrients. This results in high levels of natural bioactives (conjugated linoleic acids (CLA)”, natural polyamines, sialic acids (SA), nucleotides) in Karihome goat formulas. All Karihome formulas are manufactured in New Zealand and stringent quality checks are made from the collection of milk on-farm to manufacturing and packaging to offer nutritionally complete and safe products for infants and toddlers.

Strict production process, retains natural richness of goat milk
DGC complies with the strict requirement of New Zealand Food Safety Authority from collection of milk on-farm to product manufacture and packaging. We adopt a simplified production process, which is a more natural and less processed alternative to other formula types, to capture and utilize the natural richness of whole goat milk, including preserving complete medium chain fatty acids, natural nutrients and vitamins in goat milk to ensure providing an effective source of nutrition for infants and toddlers.

Karihome offers milk source with the best quality to ensure that babies stay healthy and mummies feel assured
Research highlights that optimal nutrition during infancy is important for normal growth and development of infants and results in better health outcomes. When selecting a suitable formula, in addition to considering nutritional value of the product, mummies should also choose milk formula from a quality source, so your child’s health will not be compromised by harmful substances.
