Find out why a2 Milk™ has got Mums talking
There has been talk lately about which milk is best for you with many people turning away from traditional cows’ milk, in favour of plant-based alternatives such as soy and almond milk.
Amongst those turning away from traditional cows’ milk are those that suffer from issues with digestion, who often find themselves feeling quite uncomfortable after drinking milk.
You may be interested to know that it could all be down to one little protein, one of which our systems sometimes struggle to digest, known as A1 protein.
But fortunately, not all cows' milk is the same.
a2 Milk™ has only the easy to digest A2 protein within it, and even people who have complained of irritants from drinking regular cows’ milk have been amazed that they can drink a2 Milk™ with no issues.
How is a2 Milk™ created?
a2 Milk™ is pure cows’ milk, pasteurised and homogenised without anything added or taken way.
a2 Milk™ work closely and selectively with their farmers to produce milk from cows who only have the digestible A2 protein in their milk and not the A1 protein which causes irritation and discomfort.
They’re able to determine which cows produce a2 Milk™ simply by testing a sample of their hair, the cows probably don’t even know it’s happening!
Join the party
After four decades of study to support the evidence that a2 Milk™ does not cause any irritation to human digestion, its following has grown exponentially. Sales of a2 Milk™ have overtaken sales of organic milk in Australia and the company has launched into China, the USA and the UK.
In 2016, Netmums officially approved the milk, with 85% of its members saying they would recommend the milk to a friend.
It’s perfect for little tums
Like adults, babies and children can react to the A1 protein in regular milk. A Netmums study found that 90% of those experiencing problems with milk saw a positive difference after trying a2 Milk™.
With all the benefits of calcium in helping children’s bones to grow and develop, cutting out milk should be a last resort. Find out why more mums are moving to a2 Milk™.
