What is A2?
Milk has a lot of calcium, protein, and vitamins in it. Lactose, fat, and a variety of minerals are among the additional components found in milk.
Serum (also known as whey protein) and casein are two forms of milk proteins with different consistency. The casein protein is further separated into alpha-casein and beta-casein (which comes in two forms: A1 and A2), which account for about 80% of milk protein.
- Acquired from the cow breed that originated in Australia, the United States, and Northern Europe such as Friesian, Ayrshire, and British Shorthorn.
- Contains A1 beta-casein protein.
- Produces BCM-7, and when it is absorbed into the system, it causes problems like schizophrenia and type-1 diabetes.
- Acquired from the ‘old fashioned’ cows such as the Gir, Sahiwal, Tharparkar. These can be spotted easily due to the presence of their hump.
- Contains A2-beta casein protein.
- Does not yield BCM-7, hence it is not only rich in producing Vitamin D and Omega 3 but also supports the digestive system and increases the immunity of the body.
