What is A2 Grade Milk
A2 beta-casein is protein found in milk produced by Indian breed cows. There are commonly many types of proteins naturally found in milk. Beta-casein protein is one type that accounts for about a third of the total milk protein. All cows make beta-casein protein. However, it is the type of beta-casein that we believe makes all the difference.
The western cows produce A1 grade beta-casein milk. Research has shown that A1 and A2 proteins digest differently. Indian Ancient, Current and growing scientific evidence supports that the different protein fragments produced have an impact on aspects of digestive function.
A2 Milk Facts
Milk is a great source of calcium and protein. Casein is the largest group of proteins found in milk which makes up about 80% of the total protein content. A2 cows are the earlier breeds of cows like the desi cows that produce this protein in their milk along with an amino acid called Proline. In the new hybrid breeds, the proline amino acid got converted to Histidine due to alteration of genes over the years. These are the A1 cows that include breeds like western cows.
