Got Indigestion? A2 Milk Might Be Easier For Some To Drink
MORAVIA, N.Y. (AP) — Milk got your stomach feeling sour? Dairy companies looking for ways to appeal to people who avoid milk because of indigestion are promoting what they describe as a natural, easier-drinking alternative. It’s called A2 milk, which is produced by a subset of cows that produce milk lacking a protein that backers say is associated with milk’s dyspeptic tendencies. That A2 claim has its skeptics, but the bet is that consumers will pay an extra dollar or more per half-gallon to drink milk that might not cause indigestion, gas and bloating. “Our approach has been, ‘Listen, if you...

If you’ve ever wondered where that gas comes from and whether it’s bad for you, the answers may surprise you. “Gas is the byproduct of the activity of the gut microbiota that live in our large bowel,” says Jane Muir, an associate professor of gastroenterology and head of translational nutrition science at Monash University in Australia.

That almond milk latte may be delicious, but a study just published in the Journal of Food Science and Technology suggests that the trendy beverage also has some drawbacks. When researchers compared the nutritional profiles of four popular “alternative” milks, they found that soy milk came out on top—and that almond, rice and coconut “milks” all lacked essential nutrients important for overall health. Plant-based “milks” are often marketed as wholesome and appropriate substitutes for the real thing. To find out if these claims measured up, scientists at McGill University in Canada ...
