I am very excited to announce that I’ve been chosen to be a part of the a2 Milk® Ambassador Program! Over the next several months, I’ll be bringing you valuable information about how a2 Milk® can help you and your family to enjoy milk despite any lactose sensitivities your family may have. Studies have shown that 1 in 4 Americans have discomfort after drinking milk; yet only 3-4% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with lactose intolerance. Many of us are suffering from drinking milk and may not even realize what the culprit really is.
a2 Milk® is pure farm fresh milk that is free of the A1 protein, which is the root cause of ‘Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort’. Currently, the A1 protein can be found in all conventional & organic milks on the U.S. market, and many people have been forced to start drinking alternative types of milk as a result. a2 Milk® only comes from heirloom a2 cows, which naturally produce milk free from the A1 protein. People who have long suffered from lactose intolerance issues can finally drink real milk again. The a2 Milk Company ™ has partnered with U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to expand the heirloom a2 herd, allowing milk that is free of the A1 protein to be widely available to everyone.
a2 Milk® is the pure replacement to chemically processed alternatives. It is no longer necessary to sacrifice taste or nutrition by settling for nut- or bean-based beverages, or even by cutting out milk altogether as many people do. a2 Milk® contains approximately 6x the amount of calcium as soy beverages, approximately 8x the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages.
I’ve tasted a2 Milk® myself already and it tastes as good, if not better, than the brand of milk we were buying previously. I picked up the low-fat 1% version of a2 Milk® at our local Sprouts store and thought it had richness and flavor more like a 2% or even full fat milk which is great! I imagine it will be wonderful to cook with, I look forward to sharing some ideas for recipes with you during my a2 Milk® Ambassador tenure, so stay tuned! In the meantime, use the a2 Milk® Store Locator to find which stores carry a2 Milk® near you.
