Popular milk brands selling pasteurized, homogenized, preserved milk never tell you about the elephant in the room – A1 beta-casein.
Beta casein is one of the most prominent milk proteins. Time and evolutionary changes have led to two primary variants of beta-casein – A1 and A2. Innumerable studies and research have proven that A2 milk is not only healthier but also easier to digest.
Cow breeds that you’ve often heard of such as Jersey, Holstein Friesian, etc, are hybrid breeds that produce milk that has both A1 and A2 beta-casein protein. The purity of milk is compromised right from that stage. What’s more, is that A1 beta-casein does you more harm than good, especially due to the presence of BCM-7 (Beta-casomorphine-7).
