Starting A2 dairy testing

Sunday, March 17, 2013

We have three bottles of raw full-fat jersey cow milk, all from different cows this week. This morning I tried about 1/4 cup of a cream/milk mix in an extra large cup of decaf coffee.
My pulse was between 68 and 72 before while sitting still. It went up a few beats to about 75 while I was drinking, then went back to 68-72 a few minutes later. So it looks like I could tolerate the milk from cow number 1 without any trouble. Very encouraged by this I decided to have a bit of a dairy party and made myself some berries with goat yogurt and nuts which I also tolerated well without and raise in heartrate. Later in the day I had one more serving of the same milk as in the morning and still no sign of a reaction.
Later in the day I was starting to look at some cheese made by the same dairy we get our milk from. I may experiment with making some cheese soon. For now I will stay with making yogurt or kefir with some of the extra milk we have.
Tomorrow the experiment will continue with the milk from another cow.
