This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
Have you ever had trouble with lactose? It seems the older I get, the more sensitive my tummy is to it. And the more friends I have that have the same problem ;) It turns out that there are different types of protein in cow milk, A1 and A2. The a2 Milk Company™ has found a way to produce milk without the A1 protein that affects sensitive digestive systems. The A1 protein is to blame for post-dairy discomfort and is currently found in every traditional and organic cow milk on the market today. a2 Milk® comes from specially sourced heirloom cows and brings you cow milk without the upset stomach!
The a2 Milk Company™ is working with dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to grow and expand their herd of a2 cows. The cows, by nature, produce milk without the A1 protein!Now, people who are lactose sensitive don’t have to turn to nut or bean based milks. They can still enjoy the nutritional benefits and delicious taste of cow milk! a2 Milk® has:
- approximately six times the amount of calcium as soy beverages
- approximately eight times the protein of almond beverages and
- approximately six times the potassium levels of rice beverages

If you win, you have to promise to take me, though. My people are from there! Seriously, Ada is named after my great-great-grandmother Ada from Australia. She even had a pet kangaroo :)
I am so thrilled to continue my ambassadorship with a2 Milk®! I have loved trying this new-to-me product and have found it to be easy on my stomach (read: I can eat more dairy if I drink it). a2 Milk® is carried at our local Lassen’s. I am excited for a2 Milk® to gain traction and popularity and be carried in every store where you buy milk. To find your nearest grocery store that sells a2 Milk®, click here: a2 Milk® Store Locator
