Why A2 milk protein is important for your child

AS we’re all aware, milk not only provides a good package of nutrients that children need while growing up, but is also a great way to get filling protein, which is important to maintain the immune system and muscles, while helping build, maintain and repair cells.

But do you know what’s in the milk you drink?

Today, most regular cow’s milk contains a combination of two main milk proteins known as the A1 and A2 milk proteins.

Back in the day, however, it’s a different story, because over 5,000 years ago, cows naturally produced only A2 milk protein, defined as the original, complete source of protein containing natural carbohydrates for energy.

But many would have never heard of A2 milk protein or have never known the benefits of this particular protein. In fact, A2 milk protein has become an extremely precious source - only 30% of cows worldwide are pure A2 cow breeds that produce pure A2 milk protein.

That’s because a natural genetic mutation occurred somewhere along the way and most of our milk-producing friends started producing A1 milk protein as well.

What are the differences between A1 & A2 milk protein?

In a nutshell, the difference appears to boil down to digestion. A1 and A2 milk proteins only differ in structure by one amino acid, but that tiny variance may have a big impact on the way the protein is digested.

Emerging evidence from studies in preschool children and adults suggest that milk with A2 milk protein is less likely to be associated with digestive discomfort - think a heavy or full stomach, bloating, abdominal pain and flatulence - after milk consumption1.

Research shows that A2 milk containing only A2 milk protein is less associated with digestive discomfort1
