a2 Milk™ is not suitable for cows’ milk protein allergy
Although we would love everyone to be able to enjoy a2 Milk™, as it is pure, natural cows’ milk, if you’ve been medically diagnosed with any milk intolerance, you should speak to your doctor before trialling a2 Milk™.
Whole milk can be given to children over the age of 1, semi-skimmed from the age of 2.
If you suspect that you have lactose intolerance but have never been formally diagnosed by a doctor, a2 Milk™ could work for you even though it contains lactose. The A1 protein found in regular milk has been shown to trigger symptoms often associated with lactose intolerance. Try introducing a very small amount of a2 Milk™ into your diet such as a teaspoon in a cup of coffee or tea. If this doesn’t cause any symptoms, then gradually build up the amount. Of course, if you experience any intolerance symptoms, stop using a2 Milk™ and seek advice from your doctor.
If you have avoided cows’ milk for some time because you have uncomfortable symptoms that you suspect are due to cows’ milk, then we would recommend only introducing a very small amount of a2 Milk™. Try a teaspoon in a cup of coffee or tea. If that feels okay and the usual symptoms you experience with cows’ milk don’t re-appear then introduce two teaspoons the next day and so on. Here’s how Lindy did it.
If you already have cows’ milk as part of your regular diet, then you can simply switch from your regular milk to a2 Milk™ to see if you, like thousands of other people can feel the difference.
