a2 Milk is a great tasting natural cows’ milk from British cows, however it is also slightly unusual. This is because it comes from specially-selected cows whose milk is naturally free from a protein called A1 – a protein that can lead to digestive discomfort for many people when consumed. It launched this time last year and is in the midst of large growth in the supermarkets.
a2 Milk is the ‘natural answer’ to cases of A1 milk protein intolerance, an intolerance to milk with very similar symptoms to lactose intolerance.
Now even though no-one here has a problem with milk intolerance of any kind as such although i have not been able to drink certain types of milk for a while well its semi-skimmed (green topped milk) it always makes me sick i have no clue why and i am fine with full fat milk.We were offered some vouchers to try a2 and so i said yes i would like to give it a try.
We found some in our local co-op but there was a problem there was only the green topped semi-skimmed at first i did not want to get it and end up being sick but the kiddies and hubby wanted to try it so we got some and i decided to take the risk.
Once we got home everyone had a glass it really tasted nice sometimes you taste the semi skimmed and to me it tastes like water but this one was full of flavour i was really surprised.another thing with milk i do not quite know how to describe it but it always leaves a funny taste in my mouth and more thirsty than when i started drinking it,with the a2 milk that did not happen either which i am very happy with.
Then i was just waiting for the feeling i normally get before everything goes down hill lol but you know what honestly it did not come and i felt fine no sickness and it was so good that we got through 4 liters during the weekend the kids also love it.
I am really happy and surprised that i managed to keep this down and not end up sick i will be buying this milk again and hopefully i will get to try the full fat next time,you can also use it just like any other milk whichever way you like hubs loves it on his cereal and the kiddies love a glass of it with their food,i also enoy and nice cold glass in the morning ,overall i am very satisfied with the taste and quality.
