Have a question? 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™.
However, a2 Milk™ can help to reduce digestive discomfort in some people who have difficulty digesting ordinary cows’ milk as opposed to having a milk allergy. There is a growing body of evidence that supports the unique benefits of milk containing only the A2 beta-casein protein type like a2 Milk™.
