Global A2 Milk Market at a Glance:

Milk that contains only A2 beta casein polypeptide is called as a2 milk. A2 milk is a type of cows' milk that generally lacks a type of β-casein polypeptide called A1, and has majorly the A2 form. A2 milk has 12% more protein, 25% more vitamin A, 15% more calcium, 33% more vitamin D and 30% more cream. Also, research on A2 milk consumption have shown that regular consumption of A2 milk can assist in slowing down of muscle catabolism, thus improving muscle recovery. Milks from Guernsey, Jersey, Asian herds etc. comprise majorly A2 beta casein. A2 milk consists of beta casein protein that varies by one amino acid at 67th place in chains of amino acids. When we compare A1 milk with A2 milk, A2 is better digested as compared to A1. Digestion of A1 occurs in intestine and peptide named beta-casomorphin-7 (BCM-7) is produced enzymatically from the A1 β-casein variant. Beta-casomorphin (BCM) protein belongs to opioid peptide group and has been reported that presence of BCM-7 causes stomach discomfort, lactose intolerance, and other gastrointestinal problems and is assumed to be associated with increased risk of type 1 diabetes and heart diseases. A2 β-casein variant do not cause such discomfort and therefore is more preferable as compared to A1.

A2 milk has health benefits because of high protein content, easily digestible properties, good source of calcium, important vitamins and minerals etc. and is similarly free of antibiotics and hormones.
