A2 Milk Formula Singapore 2022

Increasing consumption of natural products and increasing awareness about functional beverages have made A2 milk has garnered attention from both consumers and scientists.

A2 milk supporters claim that it is easier to digest and absorb than other milk types. According to FM’ analysis, between 2016 and 2020, A2 milk sales have grown at 6.1% CAGR.

A2 Milk Benefits
Researchers believe that A2 is the more natural variant of beta casein. Some studies found that people who only drank milk from cows that produce A2 milk had less bloating and indigestion, leading some to believe that A2 milk is a healthier alternative to regular milk.

Although the actual science behind the difference between A1 and A2 milk is complex, research has demonstrated that digestive enzymes interact differently with A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins. As a result, A1 and A2 milk are processed in the body in different ways.

A2 Milk Production - How Is A2 Milk Produced?
In the United States nearly 100% of the milk contains a combination of both A1 and A2 beta casein. A2 milk is derived from hand-selected cows that produce milk that only contains the A2 beta-casein protein, which is comparable to that found in breast milk.

After birth and before being milked, A2 cows are DNA checked to guarantee that just the A2 protein is present. In the end, A2 milk is collected, evaluated, and processed in a completely independent milk channel.

Is A2 Milk Better Than Organic Milk?
The presence of A1 beta casein in organic milk is the most significant distinction between organic milk and organic A2/A2 milk. The major protein present in human milk is A2 beta-casein. Organic A2/A2 milk tastes exactly like the milk you’re used to, but it’s better absorbed and digested naturally.

A2 β-Casein Milk comes from milk of cows specifically selected from a DNA test. Originally, all cows are A2 cows. However, over 5,000 years ago, a gene mutation caused some dairy cows to produce A1 β-casein in addition to A2 β-casein. Recent research shows that there is only 30% of pure A2 cows today, which is extremely precious due to its purity.

1. How do you know if your baby needs different formula?
- Excessive Spit Up
- Extra Fussiness Following Feedings
- Bloody Stool
- Severe Constipation
- Allergy Symptoms. They can show symptoms either immediately following feeding or up to 10 days later. For instance: eczema or skin rashes, loose stools (which may contain blood), vomiting or gagging, refusing bottles, wheezing, swelling, hives.

2. What is the difference A1 and A2 milk?
Both A1 and A2 are proteins in the casein family, which makes up about one-third of all the proteins in human milk, but about 80 per cent of the proteins in cow's milk. The two proteins are almost identical — they each contain 209 amino acids, the building blocks of any protein.

The only difference between A1 and A2 is a difference in the 67th amino acid in the chain. (Source)

3. A1 vs A2 milk for lactose intolerance

According to this study, consumption of milk containing A1 β-casein was associated with increased gastrointestinal inflammation, worsening of PD3 symptoms, delayed transit, and decreased cognitive processing speed and accuracy. Because elimination of A1 β-casein attenuated these effects, some symptoms of lactose intolerance may stem from inflammation it triggers, and can be avoided by consuming milk containing only the A2 type of beta casein.
