Why-A2-milk

A2 milk harkens back to the way milk used to be natural & human intervention caused cows to develop A1 proteins in their milk. All other mammals produce A2 milk, including humans, which means A2 milk could offer a closer experience to drinking the milk that humans are”supposed” to have. The difference between the milk protein in A1 and A2 milk is only one amino acid – but this little difference potentially impacts how our bodies digest the milk.
With its natural golden color and amazing nutritional benefits, A2 milk is the way milk should look, taste and be enjoyed – as nature originally intended.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND A2 MILK

BY DEFINITION | A2 is cows milk that contains only the A2 type of beta-casein protein rather than the more common A1 protein found in regular milk. It is characterized by a distinct golden color.

All proteins are long chains of amino acid. Beta casein is a chain 229 amino acids in length. Cows who produce this protein in their milk with a proline at number 67 are called A2 cows, and are older breeds of cows [ i.e Guernsey ].

But some 5,000 years ago, a mutation-both natural & due to human intervention-occurred in this proline amino acid and began converting it to histidine. Cows that have this mutated beta-casein are called A1 cows, and include breeds like HOLSTEIN.

Golden Guernsey breed

A product of her island home – the island of Guernsey situated in the English Channel off the coast of France – the famed Guernsey is one of the world’s leading specialist dairy breeds with a rich heritage of…

Her quality as the producer of an unique golden colored milk high in healthy protein and rich in flavor make her the envy of dairy farmers worldwide.

The Guernsey is an excellent grazer and is a cow that has a long history of pasture – based milk production. An efficient converter of feed – to – milk, the Guernsey is the ideal cow for natural grazing requiring 20 – 30% less feed than the larger Holstein or Jersey, yet converting that feed into more nutritious protein and butter fat per unit of body weight. This is great news for you and your family.
