Alexandre Family Farm A2/A2 Organic Half & Half 28 fl oz
Beneath the creamy top, this Half & Half contains 16% butterfat – 30% creamier than other half and half.
Alexandre Family Farms uses a “low and slow” heating method when preparing their milk to harness all of the wholesome goodness in pasture-raised cow’s milk. The cool, coastal climate provides green grass 365 days a year – a constant source of nourishment for our unique blend of crossbreed cows and their milk. The result is higher CLA and Omega 3 fatty acids for a healthier, creamier taste.
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).
