According to the recent report by IMARC Group, titled “A2 Milk Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global A2 milk market size reached US$ 9.75 Billion in 2021. Milk protein usually constitutes 80% casein in which beta-casein is the second-most prevalent type along with 13 others. A1 and A2 are the most common types of beta-casein in milk and A2 beta-casein aids in preventing stomach discomfort caused by regular milk in lactose-intolerant people. A2 milk is obtained from cow breeds like Jersey, Limousin, Guernsey, and Charolais. It has a tint of golden color and is processed with the low heat pasteurization method, which preserves the beneficial nutrients and bacteria in the milk. There are several health benefits associated with the consumption of A2 milk, owing to which it has gained immense traction across the globe. It helps in lowering the risk of autoimmune diseases, heart diseases, type 1 diabetes, impaired immune responses, and neurological impairment.
