a2 Milk™ is pure dairy milk, completely natural and additive free. Most dairy milk today contains two main types of beta-casein protein, A2 and A1. Due to the differing structure of these beta-casein protein types, they are digested differently. Consumption of the A1 type of beta-casein may cause digestive discomfort in some people. Subsequent inflammation combined with intestinal transit delay is directly linked with gastrointestinal symptoms. For some people who experience gastrointestinal discomfort when drinking regular dairy milk, avoiding the A1 type of beta-casein may make the difference. a2 Milk™ contains only the A2 type of beta-casein protein and are free of the A1 type.

Engagement, translation and impact is now a key part of assessing research performance. However, nutrition misinformation is also common as there are many so-called “nutrition experts” in social media channels. During this session, you will hear from three guest speakers who are excellent communicators in their field. They will give their valuable advice regarding the art of effective nutrition translation and tackling misinformation. The Masterclass will also include a Q&A session and workshop to allow you to have dedicated question time and to put in practice what you have learned.
