As well as offering all the nutritional benefits of standard milk, some studies suggest that consumption of A2 milk help some individuals further realize the benefits associated with milk. Scientific studies and research pointing to potential health effects of the various beta-casein types have generated wide international interest.
A2 milk is produced to contain only the A2 type of a major milk protein (~1%w/v), which interestingly has been shown to be the original (or progenitor) beta-casein gene. Following digestion A2 does not yield a protein fragment (BCM-7) that has been shown to have biological effects which could potentially affect some people.
Milk’s function is to provide all the nourishment needed by rapidly growing infant mammals, as well as valuable immunological protection. Far from being a simple white liquid, milk contains a wide range of nutrients, minerals, proteins and essential fatty acids as well as bioactives, hormones, modulators and growth factors which boost immune function and aid development and growth of the intestinal tract.
Milk currently sold by most commercial Dairies is bought from farmers in the hinterlands. It is collected through a system of Dudiyas ( Milk Collectors ), a chilling unit collection centre & finally transported to the processing unit. One can imagine the possibilities of adulteration, deterioration in quality due to exposure to temperature variances & the travel time till the processing unit. We all know that how sensitive milk is. However, human greed & scientific knowledge ensures that not a drop is wasted & the milk is processed, stabilised to last a few months. This blatant interference with Nature has to have some linkage with the fastest growing industry( 19%) in India i.e., pharmaceutical.
The proof of pudding is in eating it……….. & hence the customers who have tried are going Gaga over it . There are visible health benefits accruing within a month of its regular consumption. People are increasingly converting the milk to Curd , Butter, Ghee etc & enjoying the benefits of the same.
