After making headlines around the world, a2 Milk™ has
finally arrived in Canada. This 100% Canadian milk is easier on digestion –
published research suggests a2 Milk™ may help some avoid digestive discomfort.
a2 Milk™ Starts with A2 Cows.
a2 Milk™ carries all the nutritional qualities of regular fresh milk with one important difference; most cows’ milk on grocery store shelves in Canada contains a mix of both A1 and A2 protein types. a2 Milk™ comes from cows that naturally produce milk with only the A2 protein type, or put the other way, doesn’t contain the A1 protein type.
Why Does Protein Type Matter?
Many Canadians assume they are lactose intolerant if they have discomfort after drinking milk, even without being tested to get a confirmed diagnosis. As a result, the term “lactose intolerance” has become a blanket term often used for symptoms which could be caused by a number of factors, including an A1 protein intolerance.
Because symptoms often disappear when you eliminate milk products from your diet, many people simply decide to cut out dairy and – along with it – many of the valuable nutrients that are found therein.
Many people who try a2 milk™ say they can feel the difference; that it’s easier on digestion and helps avoid the discomfort they sometimes feel when drinking milk.
Where To Find a2 Milk™
a2 Milk™ is produced in Canada and sourced from Canadian dairy farmers. Available in 1% partly skimmed, 2% partly skimmed and 3.25% homogenized, you can find a2 Milk™ on shelves at major grocery retailers across Canada, including Longos, Loblaws, Sobeys, Safeway and Save On Foods.
