Regular milk in the market contains both A1 and A2 Beta-Casein. A2 Protein Milk contains only A2 beta-casein.
A1 Vs A2
A1 beta-casein milk from breeds of cow like Holstein, Friesian, Ayrshire and British Shorthorn.
A2 beta-casein is milk that high in A2 beta-casein is from breeds originated from the Channel Islands, South France and Jersey.
A1 and A2 proteins give different effect to our body.
A1 protein is digested in the small intestine and will produce a peptide called beta-casomorphin-7 (BCM7). The intestine will then absorb BCM-7 and passes into the blood. Studies show BCM-7 cause stomach discomfort and this result to lactose intolerance.
Research show milk with the only A2 is more friendly to gut and smooth on the palate since this type of milk is comparable to human breast milk, milk from goats, sheep and buffalo.
Fresh milk with just A2 is very rare in the market. In fact, this is my first time trying this too.
I was introduced to A2 protein milk DiamondPure from New Zealand.
DiamondPure Fresh Milk comes in a 1-litre box with 4 different variants :
1. Low Fat Milk with Manuka Honey in Pink Box
2. Milk with Kiwi in Green Box
3. Milk with Manuka Honey in Orange Box
4. Milk with Inulin Fibre in Blue Box
Low Fat Milk with Manuka Honey - this milk is suitable for a consumer with dietary restrictions. Manuka Honey itself is a unique type of honey from bees that pollinate the native Manuka bush and found widely in New Zealand. It functions to support digestive and better immune health.
Milk with Manuka Honey - its almost the same taste like the low-fat honey just this one is not low fat. Slight thick taste compares to low fat which makes it perfect to blend with my smoothies. Seriously delicious!
Milk with Inulin Fibre - I kind of love this milk too since my body needs more fibre but due to my daily eating habits, I failed to eat more of fibre. Inulin fibre is a soluble fibre from plants which helps to improve digestive health, relieve constipation, promote weight loss and help control diabetes. To me, this milk with inulin fibre is a no.1 must stock up in my fridge.
All DiamondPure A2 Protein Milk is pasteurized and Homogenized milk. Don't worry this is totally certified halal milk. So you can consume this without worry.
