Growing Consumer Health Awareness Leading to Increased Consumption of A2 Grade Milk
The trend of eating nutritious and healthy food is increasing among consumers across all regions. Dairy products, such as milk and yogurt, are considered one of the most consumed foods worldwide. Milk is consumed largely, as it is considered as a healthy and nutritious product. But, there is an increasing number of people who cannot consume milk and milk products due to lactose intolerance and other health-related problems. The availability of products, for example, A2 grade milk makes it easier for people with lactose intolerance to use these products without any discomfort. Moreover, A2 grade milk is a rich source of calcium, proteins, vitamins, and minerals; and the structure of A2 protein is more similar to human breast milk as well as milk from sheep, buffalo, and goats.
Growing Number of Diseases with Excessive Consumption of A1 Milk to Boost Market Growth
The benefits of milk on human health is well known in all parts of the world. However, there is a shift in consumption of milk, owing to the availability of multiple options. Cow milk is considered healthy among different milk options, and consists of two major proteins such as A1 and A2. A1-based milk or A1 milk is obtained from cows of Western origin that produce large quantities of milk. The high production of A1 milk further leads to large availability and high consumption. The high utilization of A1 milk leads to health issues such as cognitive disorders and histamine in children; and obesity, heart disease, and diabetes in other age groups of the population. Thus, the health benefit of A2 milk over the negative impact of excessive consumption of A1 milk propels the A2 milk market growth
Increasing Product Application in Infant Formulae Boosting the Market Growth
A2 grade milk is considered healthy for infants as it helps to boost the immunity and provides essential nutrients required for the proper growth and development of infants. In addition, A2 protein is present in mother’s milk, and thus A2 grade milk is thought to be equivalent to mother’s milk. Thus, this type of milk and its allied products are increasingly used in infant formulae as the A2 beta-casein protein is similar to that found in breast milk. Also, numerous manufacturers are utilizing A2 beta-casein milk for making infant food. Several novel infant food products are being launched every year by various producers, surging the product demand.
High Prices May Hamper the Market Growth
Cows of Indian origin produce A2 milk; however, the production of A2 milk per cow is less. Thus, this creates the gap between supply and demand. The gap in supply and demand of A2 grade milk further leads to rise in prices of the final product, making the A2 type of milk costlier than A1 milk. The nutritious nature of A2 grade milk also increases its overall value leading to its increased application in dietary products. Several years back, cows were involved in the domestication process. As a result, cows produced A1 milk. Cows that produce A1 milk are likely to have more quantity than A2 beta-casein milk. As a result, most companies began to sell A1 milk so that milk can be made available to the public at an affordable price. Hence, the price of A2 is higher than regular A1 milk.
