What is A1/A2?
Cow’s milk is about 87 percent water and 13 percent solids—the solids being a combination of fat, carbohydrates in the form of lactose, minerals and protein. The major component of the milk proteins is casein; in turn about 30-35 percent of the casein (equivalent to two teaspoons in a litre of milk) is beta-casein, of which there are several varieties, determined by the genes of the cow. The most common of these variants are A1 and A2.
A1 beta-casein protein can cause digestive issues. A1 milk releases a peptide called (BetaCaso – Morphine 7) BCM7 which is not broken down into amino acids making it impossible to digest. Many studies have linked consumption of A1 milk to diseases like diabetes, coronary heart disease, autism, schizophrenia, etc.
