A1 milk contains Beta-casomorphin-7, or BCM7, which is stated to be a powerful opioid or narcotic. Beta-casomorphin-7 is formed by the digestion of A1 beta-casein. A2 milk does NOT contain A1 beta casein.
A2 milk is much more expensive when compared to the standard A1 milk. Is it really worth the difference ?

News Articles on the subject:
Woodford alerts us to the potential dangers of A1 milk and the politics of the debate over it. Beta-casomorphin-7, or BCM7, is a powerful opioid or narcotic and an oxidant. It is formed by the digestion of a particular type of milk protein (A1 beta-casein) produced by some cows.
Milk free of A1 beta casein is known as A2 milk. All milk used to be A2 until a natural mutation affected some European cows a long time ago.
