  • A2

    Anyone else using this great milk?

    i started with the light version but am now using the full cream stuff. It gives good (not great) foam and means I don't feel bloated all day.

    Give it a try!

    Yeh, it's been my standard purchase for the past 2 years. Some visitors left half a bottle in my house, so I gave it a rip and quite liked both the taste and its effect on the digestive system (which I understand is different for different people....some people have no problem with the A1 protein).

      Welcome to CS POD!

      Same, I've been using it for 2 or 3 years ........... very reliable and consistent in taste.

      If you're in or around Melbourne other good milk for coffee is Procal, Sungold and smaller dairies like Jones'.

      No trouble with silky micro foam.

        Yeah ive been using the light for a couple of years. I was looking at giving up the bovine juice before A2.

        I find the light makes really silky microfoam and is super consistent. The taste is really sweet with decent body and lets the coffee really shine in milk drinks.

          Thanks for the welcome!

          I do like the A2.

          Steve, I'd recommend you try the full fat. It's only 4% as opposed to the 2% low fat (from memory' sorry if I'm wrong there) it gives a much nicer foam and a lovely mouth feel.

            I had a go with it, couldn't really taste/notice any difference between the 'standard' Coles/Woolies 2L, Dairy Farmers/Devondale, and 'premium' A2 etc. A back-to-back tasting might reveal something different, but until then i'm happy to save a few $$ and get the cheaper stuff. Full cream is definitely nicer than the skim/light milk though.

              Fair enough :-D.....but you might notice a difference through the year as A2 is really consistent and avoids the

              'silage season' when dairy cows are fed fermented grass, the taste of which becomes very noticeable. Paul's Milk is

              a good example of ferment taste.

              This is why I use A2..... nothing to do with the protein.

                Yes- A2 for me as well. I use both the full fat and low fat variants and find little difference (none) in performance. Taste is great with both of them. Never buy the other stuff these days as there is simply no need to...

                  +1 for A2.
                  I tried Paul's last week and cannot stand it.

                    Norco 'Cream on Top' - Tried this today for the first time. Found it in a small family store in Nrthrn NSW after finishing a trail ride out of Casino township.
                    Definitely a spin out to go back 30+ yrs to the way milk WAS. In a single shot flat white you can definitely taste the smoother creamier addition in the cup as compared to the 'std' cream / milk solids stripped homogenised milk that in today's world is called 'full cream' milk!
                    Try it - you'll likely agree that (compared to 'Cream on Top' the way it used to be vs today's 'full cream' homogenised)- it is Big Business ably assisted by the Two Party preferred Governments (that we must have in Aust) to undertake modern day legalised Fraud.

                        Been using A2 for a while as well. Consistency is excellent. Noticed a few other brands are also now producing their own A2 style. Reckon its popularity has forced them down that path.

                          If it's what I'm thinking of - that's a marketing scam. Here in Sydney, Dairy Farmers have started labelling their milk as 'Naturally contains A2 protein'. Now this is technically true as Dairy Farmers collect milk from a number of dairy farmers and just by probability a percentage of those would be A2 cows - so they have a 'mixed milk' which would contain both A1 and A2 protein. The beauty of A2 milk is that it is 'exclusively' A2 milk protein not contaminated by A1 milk protein. So whilst the statement is technically true - the benefits are null and void as it also 'naturally contains A1 protein'. As I said a marketing/labelling scam!!!

                            Yep, A2 is top stuff. Easily the best I've used for microfoam and taste

                              And to quote the Dieticians Association: A2 Milk | Dietitians Association of Australia there's no convincing evidence of the benefits of A2. I worked for the Dairy industry in the research area when A2 first fronted. My summary is that it might be good for some...or it might not. Either way the placebo effect has settled many tummies over time :-)
