With changing environment and demand for better immunity, A2 Ghee is gaining popularity day by day. Health conscious families are now shifting to A2 ghee

The facts you must know before shifting to A2 Ghee

Nature intended us to consume A2 Dairy products only!

A1 Protein is just not good for humans


Originally, Indian Desi cows yields milk high in A2 protein only.

Then from where did this A1 Protein come to India?

Actually, this is the ill-result of Human Greed.

To meet commercial interests, human interventions lead to development of A1 protein in Indian cow.

The Indian breed (A2 Cow) gives 8 liters of milk.

European breed & hybrids (A1 Cow) produces 15 to 20 litres of milk

This made all the difference in money making game.

We neglected our native breeds of cows whose milk was always considered to be medicinal.

Cross-Breeding with foreign breeds over the years, disturbed the pure gene pool of Indian cows. And because these A-1 cows produce large quantity of milk, many companies started shifting to A-1 milk producing cows for their own benefit.

The sad reality:

Gir cow, which is a Gujarati breed, is now being imported from Brazil and the Brahmi Bull, which is another pure breed, is more popular in Australia. It’s ironic that people in these countries are drinking better quality milk from cows native to our country.

A1 Vs A2

There is difference of only single amino acid in A1 & A2 cows but this single amino acid changes the properties of milk entirely and effect the way how milk and its products are digested in human body.

Desi Indian cows (A2 Cow): Low Yield

Hybrid Cows (A1 Cow) : High Yield

A2 Milk: Casein + Amino acid Proline

A1 Milk: Casein + Amino acid Histidine (the result of a mutation)

Proline is strongly bonded to a small protein called Bovine BCM 7 (beta casomorphin 7)

Histidine weakly holds Bovine BCM 7 (the milk devil)

Digestion of A2 milk releases minimal amount of BCM 7

Digestion of A1 milk releases considerably large amount of BCM 7 that interact with the digestive system and internal organs and may trigger adverse health effects


Dairy products made from A2 milk are far more superior and actually healthy for human body.
