Key scientific references

As pioneers in the area of A2 protein type science with over 20 years investment into research, we are looking to further develop scientific evidence on the benefits of A2 protein type and its subsequent health effects.

As our research environment matures, we continue to build on our expertise for impactful awareness and research communication to researchers and the wider audience
