What is A2 milk?
A2 milk is an alternative to regular cow’s milk. Emerging evidence from studies in preschool children and adults suggests A2 milk is less likely to be associated with digestive discomfort.
Most cow’s milk found in grocery stores contains two beta-casein proteins that are known as A1 and A2. But this wasn’t always the case. Back in the day, cows only produced the A2 protein. At some point along the way, a mutation occurred, and most of our milk-producing friends started to make the A1 protein as well.
Luckily, there are still cows out there that only produce the A2 protein. They are the ones that make A2 milk possible.
A2 milk protein is not a product of genetic engineering or modification. It’s naturally obtained from these special cows.
