Milk is a staple at my house. We enjoy milk every day... or at least, my husband and kids do. I've never been a milk drinker, even as a child, and I suspect it was partly because of the way it tasted (we only had evaporated milk in the Philippines at that time!) and party because of the way it made me feel.
Coming to live in the US and getting to taste real, fresh milk got rid of my taste aversion, but the possibility of tummy discomfort (yes, lactose intolerance in Asians is not a myth!) has always kept me away from milk... until now. I'm happy to announce that I've been chosen by Influence Central to be an ambassador for a2 Milk®!
What's special about a2 Milk®? It's the only milk on the market that is naturally free from the A1 protein, which is the culprit behind "Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort". It only contains A2-protein (beta-casein), which is found in all other mammals' milk (sheep, goat, even human). Originally, all cows' milk had only the A2-protein, but over time, cows' milk developed the A1-protein due to modern farming methods. However, there are still herds of cows that only produce milk with only the A2-protein, and those are the cows that the a2 Milk Company™ sources its milk from. So it's real cows' milk from a very special herd of cow!

Will a2 Milk® finally help me overcome my aversion to milk? Stay tuned!
