Can I drink a2 Milk® if I have lactose intolerance?
If your stomach rumbles, you feel bloated, or need to use the restroom urgently after having milk, you may be experiencing lactose intolerance. This is the inability to properly digest the naturally-occurring sugars found in milk called lactose. Additional symptoms include nausea, vomiting, or stomach cramps. To manage this condition, you need to choose milk with little to no lactose. If a medical professional has diagnosed you with lactose intolerance, do not drink a2 Milk®.
If I have a dairy sensitivity, can I drink a2 Milk®?
For those with less severe symptoms, you may only have a sensitivity to dairy. Do you notice mild digestive discomfort when eating some dairy products, but not others? You might be responding to the A1 protein found in regular milk. Since a2 Milk® doesn't contain A1 protein, your stomach might be a bit happier. It's worth trying a2 Milk® with your next meal.
Plant-based milks don't work for me. Now what?
If you're experimenting with plant-based milks and discovered they don't perform as well as dairy milk in your favorite recipes, or they don't make you feel well, it might be time to make a switch. Plant-based milks are often made from nuts and grains (like almonds, rice, and cashews) which may trigger an allergic reaction. Going back to traditional cow-based dairy products may help you feel better!
What is a2 Milk®?
If you're experiencing some minor discomfort after consuming milk products, have a dairy sensitivity, or simply want to experiment with transitioning from vegan milks to traditional dairy products, give a2 Milk® a chance. We select some very special cows that naturally only produce the A2 protein, not a mixture of A1 and A2 proteins. Published research suggests a2 Milk® is easier on digestion, which may help some people avoid discomfort.
