A1 and A2 are the two kinds of beta-casein protein present in milk. While most cows' milk contains a mix of A1 and A2 proteins, desi cows like Gir and Sahiwal produce exclusively A2 protein, which is a richer source of nutrients. When compared to regular milk, A2 Desi Cow Milk is real, healthy milk that is simpler to digest, tastier, and creamier.
The health consequences of milk may vary depending on the breed of cow from which it was produced. There is only preliminary science to support the theory that A2 milk has additional health benefits to regular cow’s milk. A2 milk is a type of milk from certain cows that produce milk highly concentrated in A2 beta casein, which is a type of milk protein. All milk contains a protein called beta casein, which has two common forms: A1 and A2. While regular milk contains both forms of beta casein, A2 milk only contains the A2 beta casein, which is thought to be easier to digest.
In comparison to HF or jersey cows, Desi cows produce less milk (i.e. 4-8 ltr per day). HF or jersey cows can produce 15-25ltr milk in a day. As a result, A2 milk is very costly.
Gavyam Organics Milk does not come from a typical dairy but from a farm. We grow our own green fodder and check the quality of dry feed supplied to the cows on our own farm , which is home to around 50 desi cows, and we do not engage in the procedures of adding or extracting fat from the milk. Because of the healthy food supplied to the cows, the fat percentage and SNF detected in the milk are evenly maintained. We don't use any hormones on our cows, and we don't add any preservatives to the milk. As a result, Gavyam Organics Milk is given to clients in its purest form, straight from the farm.
According to Ayurveda the fresher the milk, the more prana or life force it can offer us. Cow’s milk is cool, heavy, laxative, and mucus-forming. It has a sweet taste (rasa), a cooling effect on the gut (virya), and a sweet, building long-term effect (vipaka). If you warm it up and spice it appropriately, cow’s milk is highly regarded in Ayurveda for calming both vata and pitta. Its cool heaviness can aggravate already cool kapha. Adding spices to milk also counters its cool qualities and balances its heaviness. Turmeric, Ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom enhance its digestibility substantially and reduce mucus production. In order to digest milk properly, one should avoid drinking cold milk right out of the refrigerator. Milk should be brought to a boil. Allow the milk to foam up, and then bring the heat down so the milk is on a slow boil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Heating the milk changes its molecular structure so it is much easier for human consumption, and it reduces Kapha, making it lighter to digest. While cooking it, you may add a pinch of ground turmeric, a pinch of ground black pepper, a cinnamon stick, or a few pinches of ginger to reduce the heaviness of the milk and reduce any mucus-causing side effect. You can add jaggery to your taste. If you have trouble digesting milk and have not consumed it for a while, then it is recommended that you start again in a gradual fashion to help your body acclimate to it. Start with drinking ⅛ of a cup of the boiled milk with ginger. Then gradually increase the amount to about a cup over a ten-day period. Warm milk consumed 30 minutes before bed can aid in falling asleep.
Boiling : The first step is to Boil the milk.
Preparing Curd : Curd or Yogurt is prepared out of this Milk. Curd is made by mixing a spoonful of existing curd that you already have in the milk. Then rest this mix in a place overnight.
Churning: The Curd then has to be churned manually. Churning the curd bi-directionally “ Clockwise and Anti-Clockwise “is to be done.
Separating: As the churning process ends, the butter is produced and separated.
Heating: The butter is heated to separate moisture and milk solids. At the end of this process, the ghee is almost ready and will start emitting the divine aroma.
Ghee is a significant source of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA. Studies show that CLA may help combat obesity. Research indicates that the CLA found in ghee may help reduce excessive weight gain. It may also help reduce the mass of body fat in many people.
When used correctly, ghee is one of the most therapeutic substances in Ayurveda. Ghee produced from cow's milk has a somewhat nutty, golden taste that distinguishes it from common clarified butter or Ghee. It's high in medium and short chain fatty acids, including butyrates, which help with digestion, bile flow, and maintaining a healthy microbiota. It may even be able to turn off cancer and inflammation-related gene expression. Contrary to conventional perception Ghee does not elevate cholesterol and is abundant in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), which is essential to develop lean muscle mass and promote weight loss. It contains a fat-soluble vitamins A and E.
Cow milk and ghee are believed to be more sattvic - pure and purifying. On the other hand, buffalo milk and ghee are more tamasic – dulling the senses. Also, cow ghee has all the five elements - ether, air, fire, water, and earth. This is similar to ojas which is the subtle life force that is responsible for one’s energy, vitality and immunity. Ghee is used in Panchakarma and Ayurvedic cleaning because it penetrates and helps dissolve impurities in the body's tissues. These wastes are subsequently removed through the intestines
Rekindles the digestive fire: Ghee stimulates the secretion of acids in the stomach that help break down food. It also helps remove toxins and promotes elimination, thus improving digestive quality.
Promotes better absorption of nutrients: Ghee increases the capability of the intestinal walls to absorb nutrients. This quality also enhances the healing power of the herbs you ingest.
Source of fatty acids: It is the main source of Butyrate fatty acid. This is vital for the health of the intestinal walls, reducing chances of inflammation. It is ideal for conditions such as leaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This fatty acid also helps in reducing the risk of colon cancer.
Lubricates the body: Whether applied externally or taken internally, ghee nourishes and lubricates tissues in the body. It reduces dry skin, dry colon, inflammation and stiff joints. It makes you more lustrous and flexible.
Nourishes the brain and nervous system: Ghee increases your memory and intellect. It is beneficial for mental and emotional imbalances.
Possesses anti-inflammatory properties: Ghee helps control allergies, arthritis, and auto-immune conditions, as it has anti-inflammatory agents.
Ghee benefits the eyes: In Ayurveda, ghee, along with Triphala and honey, is used to improve ocular (eye) health.
Increases the effectiveness of medicinal herbs: Ghee is a well-known catalyst (anupana) and has the unique ability to drive the healing properties of the medicinal herbs deep into the seven body tissues (sapta dhatus). This increases the effectiveness and healing potency of the herbs dispensed.
Good for Skin: For dark circles, skip the under-eye lotions and serums in favour of ghee. For lips that are parched and black. Using your fingers, gently rub a drop of ghee over your lips and naval before going to bed. Use ghee for abhyanga - apply it to your body before bathing for soft, silky skin.
Normal cow ghee in the market - Amul, Patanjali etc., is produced by foreign as well as desi/mixed breeds. Foreign breeds yield 15-30litres milk a day. Also, the method of preparation is by cream; the leftover milk is sold as low-fat milk. So overall pricing is very cheap.
