"Organic Donkey milk: a functional, natural, precious and safe food!"

Nowadays, the scientific community recognizes donkey milk as the most similar to breast milk. Therefore, it is considered a superfood with great nutritional properties and health benefits!

The three main proteins in donkey whey are α-lactalbumin, β-lactoglobulin and lysozyme. Recent studies show that α-lactalbumin has antiviral, antitumor and anti-stress properties. Moreover, it has been proven that α-lactalbumin works as an anti-inflammatory by inhibiting cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and phospholipase A2.

One of main allergens in children is β-lactoglobulin, which is also the main protein in cow whey. In donkey milk, the presence of β-lactoglobulin is very low, when compared to cow milk.  This may be somewhat related to donkey milk being considered hypoallergenic.

Also, the high content of lysozyme may be responsible for the low bacterial concentration in donkey milk. The concentration of lysozyme in breast milk increases significantly after the second month of lactation. This enzyme has an important role in helping fighting infections in babies who are breastfed for longer.



Organically certified lyophilized donkey milk is a natural food with high nutritional value. It contains Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Chromium, Selenium, Vitamins E, C, B1, B2, B6, B9 and B12 and Omega 3, 6 and 9.

Probably the best Donkey Milk in the world!


Asinus Atlanticus S.A produces, processes and markets lyophilized organic donkey milk.

Asinus Atlanticus, is company, established in Angra do Heroísmo, in Azores on the 21st of December, 2013.

Azores archipelago’s nine islands, of volcanic origin, present diverse landscape aspects with common geological features.

The Azores have a maritime temperate climate. The latitude, the insularity, the lansdscape and the warm gulf current are different factors that determin the climate characteristics of the archipelago, particularly it’s temperature and rainfall ranges.

The weather conditions of the azorean islands, with frequent and heavy rainfall all trough the year, combined with the volcanic, very fertile, soil, lead to ever so green and productive pastures, of grass rich in macro and micro nutrients.


Due to its casein content...

Casein is, without a doubt, a protein with high organic value. It is also highly nutritious, thanks to the amount, variety and proportion of essential and non-essential amino acids. The high concentrations of glutamine, especially in the form of peptides, are highly advantageous to preserve muscle mass, be it for people who preform intense workouts, for people who are one a diet to lose weight or for those who, for some reason, are experiencing a dietary restriction.

Glutamine is the amino acid that is most present in muscle tissue. Boosting it with supplementation may lead to an increase in the capacity to retain muscle mass, even during periods of physical inactivity.

Glutamine is also essential for the immune system to function properly. Therefore, ingesting the proper amounts of glutamine helps boost the immune system and you become more resistant to infectious diseases.

Donkey milk's lactose content (7 %) is similar to that of breast milk and higher than that of cow milk. This high lactose content is responsible for its pleasant taste and makes it easier for the calcium to be absorbed by the intestines, which is essential for the baby's bone mineralization.

Donkey milk as a lower fat content, when compared to breast milk and has, therefore, a lower energy content.  The high content of fatty acids in donkey milk makes it one of the most complex sources of natural fats and, consequently, one of the most complete ones. In a well-balanced and complete diet, donkey milk is a good source of essential fatty acids.

This category of fatty acids is very in important in the diet of patients who are allergic to cow milk, especially if they also have other food allergies.

Asinus Atlanticus's donkey milk comes from the milking of our donkeys (Equus asinus), a process which is done twice a day. Our donkeys are allowed to graze and receive a daily supplement of 200 grams of organic oat each. Due to the proximity of our pastures to the Atlantic Ocean, we are able to produce milk with unmatchable amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids like α-linolenic acid
