A1 or A2 – does it really matter?

A1 or A2 – does it really matter?

Milk is the only food in the world that provides 18 of the 22 essential nutrients required for human survival – making it one of the most consumed foods through history and till date.  

However, what plagues most of us is the need to figure out which is the healthiest milk for us to consume and brings the maximum benefits.  

Milk is classified as A1 or A2 depending on the type of beta-casein proteins present in it. Regular milk contains both A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins while milk with a higher concentration of A2 proteins is known as A2 cow milk. 

After multiple studies to determine which type of milk is healthier or more nutritious, researchers are yet to find any concrete evidence to support any claims of either being the better choice.   However, whether A1 or A2, the source of milk is important for its full benefits.  

Studies show that organic milk from organic fodder-fed cows has a higher concentration of omega-3 fatty acids and other essential nutrients and is free from synthetic hormones, antibiotics and chemical-residues.
