Updated: Nov 1, 2018

Most of us are not aware of the fact that there is huge difference between milk of Indian origin (which has hump) and milk of Foreign origin (which doesn't have hump).

There are genetic variants of proteins in the milk of Indian vs Foreign origins.

  • Foreign Origin (like jersey) cow milk contains A1 type beta-casein in proteins

  • Indian Origin (like Gir) cow contains A2-type beta-casein in proteins
