Have a question? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
Cows’ milk allergy is a serious condition and is different to cows’ milk intolerance. If you or your child is known to suffer from a cows’ milk allergy, you should consult your doctor or paediatrician before consuming ANY milk variety, including a2 Milk™.
All milk contains a variety of biologically active factors known to affect the immune system. a2 Milk™ contains all of the proteins that you would find in standard cows’ milk except for the A1 beta-casein protein. Therefore, those people with allergies to the proteins in standard cows’ milk will not be able to drink a2 Milk™.
The major difference is that a2 Milk™ does not contain A1 beta-casein protein, which releases the opioid BCM-7 on digestion. a2 Milk™ only contains A2 beta-casein protein and the structure of A2 beta-casein limits the release of BCM-7 on digestion.
