Can cow milk yogurt be made to be more digestible? What’s the deal with A2 protein?

The answer is ‘Yes.’ Not all breeds of cows produce the same kind of milk. Bellwether Farms uses milk from Jersey cows that we source from neighboring farms here in Sonoma County, California. Jersey cow milk contains naturally contains more A2 beta-casein protein, not the A1 protein that many find difficult to digest. The cows producing the organic milk used in our yogurts have been DNA tested to confirm they produce only A2 protein. In addition to being more digestible, Jersey cow milk also has a richer, creamier taste and texture.
