The a2 Milk™ difference

Our a2 Milk™ comes from cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein.

Many people say they can feel the difference.

The a2 Milk Difference

What's the Difference Between Ordinary Cows' Milk and a2 Milk™ ?

Let’s dig into the science. Milk from cows contains ample protein, including casein and whey. Approximately one third of protein in cows’ milk is beta-casein which includes both A1 and A2 beta-casein.

There is a slight difference in how these beta-casein proteins are digested. Published research suggests that A2 protein is easier on digestion and may help some avoid discomfort.
