RAW A2A2 MILK
ALL of our milkers are certified by U C Davis to hold the A2A2 Beta Casein genotype. We don’t even have an A1 cow on the farm! Even our glorious Scottish Highlander are A2! Whats the difference? A mutated amino acid chain. Years ago, some how, a genetic mutation occurred at the 67th protein in the chain. A1 posses the amino acid called Histidine, (a lactase) while A2 has a Proline (an enzyme). While this may seem like a small mutation, the human body processes the two very differently. When the body tries to breakdown the A1 , it creates a protein fragment called BCM7, or beta-casomorphin 7. It is this fragment that is to blame. The BCM7 is believed to cause digestive issues, “lactose intolence”, diabetes, autism, mental disorders and auto immune diseases. A New Zealand Professor founded the following.. during a study between two groups of 250 mice, one group fed A1 milk and the other fed A2 milk, Elliot found that 47% of the mice fed A1 milk had Type 1 Diabetes, where as NONE of the mice fed A2 milk got diabetes. 47%!
When a human suffers from “lactose Intolerance” their doctor tells them to switch to goats milk, as it is easier to digest.. why? Because goat milk is naturally A2, as is human breast milk. So why are we still consuming A1?
I encourage you to google the effects of A1 milk. Dr. Mercola has an excellent articles, as do several others.
In effort to be zero waste, we strive to use as sustainable practices as possible here on the farm. This not only includes washable towels instead of paper but also glass jars. We only bottle our milk and cream in reusable glass jars. No garbage, no leaching BPA. And it taste better ?
