Millions of Americans experience post-dairy digestive discomfort (PD3), self-diagnose lactose intolerance, and avoid cows’ milk. But there is strong evidence that lactose intolerance might not be the cause of PD3 for many of these milk avoiders. A better understanding of the proteins in milk can aid your efforts to counsel these patients and clients—and re-introduce real cows’ milk to some, without the discomfort.

Learn more by viewing Milk Protein and Human Health: A1 versus A2 Beta-Casein, a new one-hour webinar, presented by Dr. Joanna McMillan and Professor Karen Dwyer.

Ordinary cows’ milk contains a mixture of A1 and A2 beta-casein. A growing body of research supports the notion that some people digest milk proteins differently, and that for these people, A1 beta-casein may be the cause of PD3.
