Alexandre Family Farm Organic A2/A2 2% High Protein Milk 48 fl oz
This 2% milk contains 12 grams of protein per serving – which is 50% more protein than other 2% milks on the market (which contain 8% protein per serving.)
Alexandre Family Farms uses a “low and slow” heating method when preparing our milk to harness all of the delicious flavor in pasture-raised cow’s milk. The cool, coastal climate provides green grass 365 days a year – a constant source of nourishment for their unique blend of crossbreed cows, and results in milk with higher Omega 3s and CLA’s (conjugated linoleic acids).
What's the difference of A2/A2? A1 protein does not breakdown well in the human body, and can cause discomfort and allergies. The Milk from Alexandre Family Farm is 100% A2/A2, so it's A1-Free.
Traditionally, the beta casein in cow’s milk was the same as the primary protein in human milk: A2 /A2 beta casein. A2/A2 beta casein protein is most natural to the human body and easily absorbed. However, over time, there was a genetic mutation in cows and an A1 beta casein variation resulted in cows with two types of proteins – A1 and A2. Unfortunately, the A1 beta casein can be difficult for humans to digest and is linked to many health issues. 20 years ago, Stephanie and Blake Alexandre determined to breed the A1 beta casein gene out of their herd of cows. The result today is that they have 100% A2/A2 cows producing 100% A2/A2 milk (A1-free).
