Frequently asked questions
Why use milk from desi cows instead of Holstein cows?
A1 cow breed include Holstein, Friesian and Ayrshire, which are available abroad. However, desi cow breeds like Gir, Rathi, Kankrej, Sahiwal, etc., produce A2 milk. A2 milk is the ideal way in which the milk should look, taste and be enjoyed – as nature originally intended.
A1 and A2 beta-casein are two types of proteins found in different milk varieties. BCM-7 is an opioid peptide that is released during the digestion of A1 milk. Since it is not absorbed well by the human body, it
may trigger adverse health effects like Type 1 diabetes, neurological impairment, autoimmune disease, or heart disease.
Therefore, milk from desi cows or A2 milk is beneficial for many people as it has hypoallergenic properties and multiple health benefits. The primary ingredient in Amrutam Ghee is A2 milk and is, therefore, safe to consume. You can read about it’s benefits
How does ghee help in reducing cholesterol?
Scientific research has demonstrated that various forms of fats, like ghee, seem to have a complex effect on human health. A2 cow Ghee is, in fact, a saturated fat and if it makes up less than 10 percent of the diet, it can reduce cholesterol by triggering an increased secretion of biliary lipids. Despite their bad reputation, saturated fats are essential as they help boost immunity and keep viral infections at bay.
