The dairy industry is witnessing a potential revolution with the introduction of 'A2+ Milk' by the Seoul Milk Cooperative in Korea, targeting consumers with digestive issues. This innovative product comes from cows that produce only the A2 protein, which is easier to digest and closely resembles human breast milk.
