Alexandre Family Farm Organic A2/A2 6% Whole Milk 48 fl oz
Alexandre Family Farm milk is exceptional in many ways. Not only is it 100% A2/A2 and comes from happy grazing cows on our regenerative organic farm, but it has higher protein and milk-fat than other milk. With health as our primary focus, they go beyond the regulatory minimums to bring you the most nutritious (and delicious) milk you can buy.
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).
