We're thrilled to share some exciting news with our valued customers: Marcoot Jersey Creamery is now proudly producing 100% A2/A2 Jersey milk! This milestone marks the culmination of over a decade of dedicated efforts to enhance our herd genetics, ensuring a superior quality of milk for our esteemed range of cheeses.
Understanding A2/A2 Milk
Milk primarily consists of two types of proteins: whey proteins and casein proteins. The pivotal beta-casein protein has two variants: A1 and A2. While all dairy cows were initially A2, the passage of time saw the emergence of a genetic mutation giving rise to the A1 variant in cows' genomic profiles. Importantly, A2/A2 milk bears no distinction in taste, texture, or nutritional value compared to conventional milk. Its unique advantage lies in its ease of digestion.
A2/A2: A Game-Changer for Digestive Health
Recent research strongly suggests that A2/A2 milk offers notable benefits for digestive health. Individuals with dairy protein allergies or sensitivities may find relief in consuming our products, as A2/A2 milk tends to be gentler on the digestive system.
The Marcoot Journey Towards A2/A2
In 2010, we embarked on a journey to explore the potential health benefits of A2/A2 milk. Recognizing its potential, we dedicated ourselves to breeding our cows exclusively with A2/A2 bulls. Over the past 13 years, we've tirelessly worked towards our goal of achieving A2/A2 status, meticulously selecting the finest A2/A2 genetics and genotyping each of our heifers right here on our farm.
Pioneering Research: A2/A2 Milk's Health Benefits
Published studies have unveiled promising health benefits associated with A2/A2 milk consumption. While more research is needed to delve deeper into this dairy revolution, initial findings have sparked tremendous interest in the demand for A2/A2 milk. Here are a couple of noteworthy articles:
