Alexandre Family Farm 100% Grass Fed Milk 48 fl oz
Cows that eat only grass produce more nutrient-rich milk. 100% grass-fed organic dairy has significantly more omega-3s – the essential fatty acids that contribute to brain and eye health, especially in children. There is also a better balance of omega-6 to omega-3 in 100% grass-fed dairy – helping bring people’s ratio closer to the 2:1 ratio considered optimal for human health. CLAs (conjugated linoleic acids) – the healthy fats known for their evidence-based benefits – are highest in 100% grass-fed dairy.
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).
