We’d like to gently say, in the nicest way possible, that we don’t think A2 protein cows are actually better for your stomach.
It’s been 20 years since the claim was made that A2 protein cows may be better for dairy-intolerant people. To date, after 20 years of extensive research undertaken around the globe, there is no conclusive evidence to support the claim that A2 milk is better for your stomach.
In fact, A2 milk companies’ own website states “Published research suggests that A2 Milk™ may help avoid stomach discomfort in some people.” That seems like a very vague statement to us.
You may say “But milk has always upset my stomach and we have been buying A2 milk from a local farmer and I can drink it with no discomfort.” We agree, our customers have been telling us the same thing since 2014 and we have never been A2.
We think that drinking milk that has been lightly processed is the real reason it doesn’t affect your stomach. Our theory is that modern standardisation process which deconstructs milk at the molecular level and then puts it back together again is affecting how some people can tolerate milk.
But that is just a hunch.
