Do you know milk’s protein content is the hero factor which defines your milk as A1 or A2 Milk? And this protein content depends upon the breed of the cow the milk comes from.
This article will talk about milk proteins, their science behind, and the health benefits of A2 milk.
Milk contains different types of protein. However, casein takes precedence, as it comprises 80% of the milk’s total protein content.
Casein has several types as well, including beta-casein, which is the second most important protein in milk. However, beta-casein exists in milk in 13 forms, of which two are the most critical. They are A1 beta-casein and A2 beta-casein.
Milk you get in-store or buy from your milkman contains both A1 and A2, only A2 milk contains high A2 beta-casein.
There’s a huge difference between A1 and A2 milk beta-casein.
A1 milk is milked from breeds of cows originated from northern Europe, such as Ayrshire, Friesian, Holstein, and Shorthorn.
A2 milk is milk that is milked from breeds that are found in Western India, Southern France, and the Channel Islands. The names of the breeds are Indian Gir, Jersey, Guernsey, Limousin, and Charolais.
A2 beta-casein is a very safe and nourishing protein, where as scientists claim A1 beta-casein as harmful. Researchers do say that A2 milk is nutritious, promotes heart health, and contains CLA, an essential acid that potentially lowers bad cholesterol.

You should always buy A2 Milk in Pune and Mumbai from a registered A2 Milk producer.

In India, A2 desi cow milk is milked from the famous milk cattle, Gyr or Gir, found in the Gir hills and forests of the four Gujarat districts: Kathiawar, Bhavnagar, Rajkot, and Junagadh.
