So you know by now that I’m pretty much a bona fide “next cool food” geek, especially when it comes to supermarket/store products. Well, today I’m happy to announce that I’ve found a new product to get excited about: a2 Milk®!
a2 Milk® is real pure farm fresh milk that’s designed to alleviate the tummy troubles caused by ‘post-dairy digestive discomfort.’ It turns out that the cause of that trouble is the A1 milk protein, which is pretty much in all the milk available for purchase at the store.
Well, since I’m one of those people that can get a crazy mean stomachache ache after a morning bowl of cereal, I’m pretty excited to learn that there might be hope for me yet! A recent study showed that 1 out of 4 Americans experience similar discomfort, but only 3-4% of the population actually have a clinical lactose intolerance. And what if it’s really just a product of our dairy cow selection process way back when? And that a2 Milk® can fix most of those issues?
In fact, what’s even more exciting is that I get to be an ambassador on behalf of a2 Milk® throughout the year! We’ve stocked up on a2 Milk® in our house and can’t wait to share how it fits into our food life at home! We’ve been drinking it all week: Miss L said it was great in her cereal, and I’ve enjoyed a glass or two on my own with no tummy issues to speak of!
You may not have noticed a2 Milk® in your store, but I bet you can find it nearby! I found ours in our local Safeway, and our local Whole Foods carries it as well. 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, so hopefully it’ll be available in more and more stores as time goes on.
So this is just the first time you’ll be hearing about this exciting new product from me… and I can’t wait to share more goodness about a2 Milk® in the future!
