About Gir Cow and Their Milk
Gir cows originated from various districts of Gujarat and Kathiawar, Later they are migrated across INDIA. Rajasthan also has a large number of Gir cows.
Gir cows are of "Superior Breed" and the milk of these cows is of premium quality due to the presence of an A-2 beta-casein protein substance.
What is A1/A2 Milk?
A2 milk is cow's milk that mostly lacks a form of β-casein proteins called A1 and instead has mostly the A2 form. Cow's milk is about 87 percent water and 13 percent solids—the solids being a combination of fat, carbohydrates in the form of lactose, minerals and protein. The major component of the milk proteins is casein; in turn about 30-35 percent of the casein (equivalent to two teaspoons in a litre of milk) is beta-casein, of which there are several varieties, determined by the genes of the cow. The most common of these variants are A1 and A2. The percentage of the A1 and A2 beta-casein protein varies between herds of cows, and additionally between countries and provinces. Whereas African and Asian indigenous cows still manufacture only A2 beta-casein, the A1 version of the protein is common among cows within the western world. The A1 beta-casein sort is that the most typical sort found in cow's milk in Europe (excluding France), the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
What Are A1 Cows?
Those cows whose milk contains A1-type protein are termed as A1 cows. The widely spread Holstein Friesian (HF) and Jersey cows produce A1 type milk.
What Are The Benefits Of A2 Milk?
Milk derived from Desi cows is good for the body, mind, and soul. Milk is an important source of calcium, protein & fat. A2 milk is the natural milk from our Desi cows that is easy to digest and helps increase immunity, it is so-called "stomach-approved" milk and helps fight various diseases. Some people have had the experience that their digestive problems, diabetes, cholesterol issues, etc have disappeared from changing to A2 milk.
What Type Of Cows Produce A2 MILK?
Cows have been domesticated for time immemorial. Mother nature wisely selected breeds of cows suitable for a certain region. Human intervention has led to the current crisis where native breeds have been completely ignored or wiped out. Traditional Indian breeds like Gir, Sahiwal, Red Sindhi, Tharparkar, etc are less prone to diseases & have higher A2 protein content in their milk.
