As per ancient Ayurveda, milk is one of the foods that can be consumed daily and helps to provide whole nourishment to the body, if it is properly digested. It also balances all the three doshas (Life forces-Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) in our body.
In India, in every household, one common thing that is consumed is cow’s milk. They believe that cows’ milk is the purest form of milk. If it’s not properly digested, there may be chances of occurrence of Cow Milk Allergy. We know very less about which type of milk is the best and we might have rarely heard about A1 milk and A2 milk.
In this article, we covered everything you need to know about A1 milk and how it directly relates to Allergy March. You just relax and scroll down your fingers to read about it.
What is A1 Milk?
A1 cow milk is obtained from genetically engineered cows that are mutated cows of western origin. We can usually find these hybrid A1 cows – Jersey, Holstein Friesian, Ayrshire, and British Short horn in the USA, North Europe, and Australia and nowadays also found in India. A1 cows’ treated as milk-making machines are relatively cheaper than A2 cows’ milk. Although both types of milk have the same amino acid chain and the same proteins, they differ only in one amino acid structure. A1 beta-casein protein has histidine amino acid at the 67th position and A2 has proline amino acid at the same position. Even if it’s a small difference but can create a huge impact on human health.
Before we jump directly into the health consequences of A1 milk on humans, let’s get to know in detail the protein that is responsible for the A 1 milk health issues and is present in the A1 milk.
What’s that Enemy that is Haunting Us?
A1 milk is like any other type of milk contains a milk protein called Beta-casein protein, this is usually made up of an amino acid chain where at the 67th position it has histidine which is the prime enemy for us.
Histidine upon digestion will be broken down into BCM-7 (Beta-casomorphin-7) protein and this A1 beta-casein protein Intolerance causes various health issues which we can discuss further.
One more thing we have to remember here is upon digestion of A1 milk, the histidine releases to form histamine that is responsible for Allergy March. Histamine is the most important neurotransmitter that is responsible for allergic reactions in our body.
Although there are many A 1 milk side effects caused due to consumption of A1 milk, in this article we are going to discuss in detail Allergy March.
How’s A1 Milk Related to Allergy March?
As we have already discussed above, that histamine is released upon digestion of histidine, histamine is responsible for Allergy March.

A1 milk contains a hidden enemy called BCM-7 protein along with the conversion of histidine to histamine is responsible for the A1 milk protein intolerance and later on Allergy March in the people who consume A1 milk daily.
