About a2 Milk™

Not all cows’ milk is the same!

a2 Milk™ is fresh cows’ milk that’s naturally easy to digest

a2 Milk™ is pure cows’ milk but unlike regular milk, it naturally contains only the easy
to digest A2 protein. 100% free from the A1 protein that many people struggle to digest.

If you think drinking regular cows’ milk is leaving you with unwanted irritations,
try a2 Milk™ and see if you, like thousands of other people, feel the difference.

How do we get pure a2 Milk™?

a2milk-fresh-purpleOriginally all cows’ milk contained only the A2 protein and no A1. Human domestication triggered the A1 protein to evolve into dairy cowherds and today the A1 protein is found in approximately 70% of cows. Regular cows’ milk is a mixture of A1 and A2 protein.

At a2 Milk™ we’re proud to be different. We work with our farmers to hand select cows that naturally produce only A2 protein and no A1. Nothing added, nothing taken away, just easier to digest cows’ milk.

Big Difference, Little Protein

Dr Corran McLachlan

Back in 2000, The a2 Milk Company™ was founded in New Zealand by Dr Corran McLachlan after a scientific discovery; While studying at Cambridge University, Corran learned that proteins in milk affect people differently.
He learned that ordinary cows produce milk with different beta-casein proteins type, called A1 and A2. He then discovered there was a safe and simple way to identify cows who produced milk that was naturally A1 protein free. From there The a2 Milk Company was born. L®
Research over the years demonstrates that people who have discomfort when drinking ordinary cows’ milk were able to drink the a2 Milk™ brand without the downsides. That’s because a2 Milk™ contains only the A2 protein and no A1.
Today, The a2 Milk Company mission remains the same: to pioneer the scientific understanding of the A2 protein type so more people can enjoy the nutritional goodness that only comes from real and natural milk.

         a2 Milk™ is now the number one premium milk in Australia outstripping sales of organic milk. The unprecedented growth in Australia led the a2 Milk Company to launch in America, China and now it’s here in the UK.

4 Decades of Supporting Evidence

There is a developing body of scientific literature that underpins A1 protein vs A2 protein digestive differences. We’ve picked just some of the most important scientific research findings to highlight below. Links to the full research papers are available here.
