New Delhi. Radha Mohan Singh, Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, said that milk is essentially essential food for humans, due to the old age. There are countless benefits for the health of milk and milk products. Worldwide, 13 percent of the protein needs are met from milk and milk products. Milk has been considered as elixir for good health for centuries. A1 and A2 milk among the consumers has been the subject of discussion for the past few years.
Singh said that at present research has found that A2 type milk A1 type is more healthy than many times the type milk. A2 type milk protein is found naturally in indigenous cows. It protects against many diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and neurological disorder, and creates disease resistance in the body. While discussing this matter, the Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare instructed in the meeting that priority should be given to procurement, processing and marketing of cow’s milk separately.
