which is healthier?

For years, milk has been celebrated as a nutritional powerhouse, providing vital nutrients such as calcium, vitamin B2, and fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, and E, crucial for growth and development. In the dairy landscape, A2 milk has surfaced as a possible substitute for the usual or “regular” milk, and people are interested in knowing its comparative health advantages.

What is A2 milk? How is it different?

A2 milk is derived from cows producing milk exclusively containing the A2 beta-casein protein. In India indigenous breeds like Gir, Sahiwal produce A2 milk. Such a milk differs from regular milk, which is derived from buffalos or non-indigenous breeds of cows, which contains both A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins.
While comparing health benefits of A1 and A2 milk, digestive comfort stands out as a striking difference. While A1 milk was found to produce inflammatory compounds in the digestive system, A2 did not have such effects indicating that it is easier to digest and might be gentler on the stomach compared to regular milk. This could be boon for people who are lactose intolerant.
Although both are not strikingly different in the nutritional value they possess, something which is easy in digestion can help promote overall health.
The choice between A2 and regular milk often boils down to individual preferences and tolerances. However, it will always help if one could switch to healthier versions of food they have consume. It is important to consider individual health conditions before making any dietary changes.
