All regular cows’ milk brands today contain a mix of both A1 and A2 proteins. Only a2 Milk™ comes from cows hand-picked to naturally produce only the A2 protein and no A1 – and that makes all the difference.
Originally all cows produced milk containing only the A2 type of beta casein protein
Following domestication the A1 protein type emerged through the genetic mutation (approximately 70% of the cows today produce milk containing the A1 protein type)
Today, all ordinary cows’ milk contains a mix of A1 and A2 protein types
All our milk products naturally contain the A2 protein and are completely free from the A1 protein type
Recent research from Curtin University in Western Australia suggests that the A1 protein in regular cows’ milk might cause tummy discomfort in some of us. If that’s you, a2 Milk™ may help. But for the unique benefits of a2 Milk™ to work it needs to be the real deal – true a2 Milk™. From cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein and none of the A1.
Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development.
Good maternal nutrition is important in preparation for and during breastfeeding. If you are considering bottle feeding, always seek professional advice as introducing bottle feeding, either partially or exclusively, may adversely affect breastfeeding by reducing the amount of your own breast milk supply and may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind. Consider the financial and social implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
Improper or unnecessary use of infant formula may affect the health of your baby, therefore, always prepare and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
