The A2 Protein

A crucial disparity between A2A2 and A1 milk lies in the type of protein found in them. A2A2 milk contains only the A2 beta-casein protein, whereas A1 milk contains a mixture of A1 and A2 proteins.

Ethical and Environmentally-Friendly Practices

The cows that provide the A2A2 milk found in our healthy yogurt products are raised on pasture-based farms where they have ample space to graze and roam freely. By avoiding the use of hormones and antibiotics, Orontes Yogurt mitigates the risk of harmful substances entering the milk produced.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Pasture-raised cows consume a primarily grass-based diet, which reduces the need for large-scale feed production. Consequently, the carbon footprint associated with A2A2 milk is often lower compared to conventional milk production.
