Both the types have different qualities and are chosen for different foods, health, age, digestibilities, purposes etc.
BUFF. Milk have higher fat, protein, salts, and total solids- only carotene (precursor of Vitamin-A) is not visible.
BUFF MILK is never better for direct consumption, for aged & children- due to digestibility factors & curd tension. However, higher total solids give it an advantage for product conversions.

Buffalo Milk Vs. Cow Milk
No difference in nutritive value: There is practically no difference in the nutritive value and digestibility of milk and milk products obtained from cow and buffalo milks.

Lower cholesterol content: Significantly, cholesterol content of buffalo milk is 0.65 mg/g as compared to the corresponding value of 3.14 mg/g for cow milk.

More proteins: Animal bioassays have shown the Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) value of buffalo milk proteins to be 2.74 and that of cow milk as 2.49. It will be seen that buffalo milk has about 11.42 per cent higher protein than cow milk.

More important minerals: Buffalo milk is also superior to cow milk in terms of important minerals, namely calcium, iron and phosphorus which are higher by 92 per cent, 37.7 per cent and 118 per cent respectively than those present in cow milk.

More vitamin A: Buffalo metabolizes all the carotein into vitamin A, which is passed on to milk as such.
