DiamondPure Milk: A1 vs A2

Fun fact: There are actually two kinds of milk available in the market: A1 and A2.

What is the difference, you ask? According to the Authority Diet website, the difference between A1 and A2 is in the amino acid chain number 67. At this position, A2 features proline whilst A1 is linked with histidine. This mutation in the amino acid chain link of A1 milk is supposed to cause adverse effects in humans, whilst making A2 milk the healthier option.


In simple term, A2 is gut friendly and smooth on the palate. Majority of milk found on the shelves are A1 cow milk and it's hard to find milk that only contains A2 protein. There is a long list of reason for that which I shall not dive into but you can read more about it here - https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2018-06-19/dr-karl-a1-vs-a2-milk/9879800

What capture my attention to A2 was actually because of DiamondPure milk. I first glimpsed its vibrant range in an organic produce shop in SS2 PJ, selling at RM15.90 for 1L. I've heard of nut-based milk but not of milk with kiwifruit emyze which seemed ideal of DiamondPure Milk to offer since both ingredients did come from New Zealand.

Thanks to DiamondPure Milk, I got to try out all four different variants consisting of:
1. Low Fat Milk with Manuka Honey
2. Milk with Kiwi
3. Milk with Manuka Honey
4. Milk with Inulin Fibre

I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth flavour and richness of this milk brand. I am quite particular about the milk brands I drink as I've come across some that have left an odd aftertaste after drinking. It was quite off putting especially if I want milk in my coffee. But not with DiamondPure which mixed nicely with my daily cup of black coffee.

The milk with kiwi was easily my favourite with the distinct taste of kiwi that made having a cup of milk easy and refreshing. Using kiwifruit enzyme, the milk is specially formulated to preserve the properties of the kiwifruit while combined with the well-known benefits of inulin fibre and manuka honey in a delicious and ready-to-drink will make for a natural boost at any time of the day.

This brand also offers milk with manuka honey in two variants: regular A2 milk and low fat. It essentially combines natural A2 milk with manuka honey for a convenient ready-to-drink product. The low fat variant is deemed suitable for those with dietary restrictions.

For those with constipation and digestion issues, they can opt for the Milk with Inulin Fibre variant. Using the plant fiber from the artichoke plant, it creates a functional plant-based ingredient that effectively boosts digestion and other processes. It reduces constipation, improves gut health, helps curb appetite, boosts heart health and lowers metabolic syndrome risk factors.
