Difference between A1 ghee and A2 ghee
A1 milk and hence, A1 ghee comes from a genetically modified breed of cow known as Holstein / Jersey cow, whereas A2 milk or A2 ghee comes from a primitive native cow of this breed which has never been mutated. Indigenous Gir cows are usually Indian or African native cows which give up to 6 liters of milk per day. The Holstein breed of cow was bred for good productivity and low cost as it can produce 20 liters of milk per day. It also explains that A2 milk and A2 ghee are more expensive than A1 milk and A1 ghee, respectively.
Wondering what A2 Ghee is? A1 ghee comes from A1 milk and A2 cow ghee comes from A2 milk. Milk contains a protein called beta-casein, also called A1 protein. So milk that does not have A1 protein is A2 milk. The A1 protein is known to be harmful to the body, especially affecting lactose intolerant individuals. It is also a protein that is less digestible than A2 protein. So the question is how to make sure you buy A2 ghee. There are two essential differences – cow breeding and ghee extraction process.
