Ocean Road Dairies’ Organic A2 Protein Infant Formula and Toddler Milk is the first formula range in the world to use Australian organic A2 protein cow’s milk. We believe children deserve a higher standard when it comes to not only the products created, but also how their products are made and the effects they have on our next generations’ environment. Here is how our organic A2 protein range stands out.

We’re Made In Australia

For a fresher result, our dairy farms and manufacturing facility are all in the same location, alongside the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.

We Contain A2 Protein Only Organic Milk

The primary protein in all cow’s milk is casein, and it is found in cow’s milk in several different forms. The beta-casein protein can be present in two forms: A1 and A2, they make up about 80 per cent of the protein in cow’s milk. While A1 is the most common protein found in today’s milk, historically, cows naturally produced only the A2 beta-casein protein, which studies have shown, causes less digestive discomfort (bloating, gas, loose stools) and reduced digestive inflammation when compared to A1 beta-casein and independent of lactose. 

This research is based on both human and animal studies including the references set out below

At Ocean Road Dairies, we have gone back to Mother Nature’s original milk production process by raising a herd of cows that naturally produce only A2 protein milk and graze on chemical-free pastures.

The Science

The A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins are almost identical — they each contain 209 amino acids, the building blocks of any protein. The only difference between A1 and A2 is a difference in the 67th amino acid in the chain. At this position, A1 has a histidine amino acid, while A2 has a proline amino acid. 

Because of this difference, when the A1 protein is broken down, it creates peptide BCM-7, which may cause digestive discomfort.

The proline amino acid in A2 protein milk prevents BCM-7 from developing in the body, which could make for a gentler milk.

We’re NASAA Certified Organic

Our Organic A2 Protein Infant Formula and Toddler Milk is Certified Organic by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA). This means our Ocean Road Dairies farms have undergone a 3-year certification process to demonstrate our dedication to environmental sustainability and organic farming practices.

Each tin of our organic A2 protein range wears the NASAA Certified Organic badge, meaning that our cows graze on chemical-free pastures and we operate in accordance with organic farming standards that include:

No pesticides
No fertilizers
No herbicides

We Contain Farm Fresh Australian Milk

Each time milk is heated and turned into powder, it can lose some nutrients. At Ocean Road Dairies, we worked hard to raise a healthy herd of cows that produce a healthy supply of nutrient rich organic A2 protein milk.

To protect these very special nutrients, we start with fresh milk and only turn our milk into powder once throughout the process, instead of starting with milk powder and drying it twice like some regular brands.

We’re Nutritionally Balanced

Containing prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins, and minerals, Ocean Road Dairies Organic A2 Protein Infant Formula and Toddler Milk is nutritionally balanced to support normal growth and development from birth to 1 year +.

Prebiotics & Probiotics
  • Prebiotics (FOS) and probiotics (LC40) support gut bacteria and the immune system.

Long-Chain Fatty Acids
  • Essential fatty acids ARA and DHA support cognitive development.
Vitamins & Minerals
  • Vitamins and minerals including A, B12, C, D, E, Iron, Iodine, and more to support the stages of normal growth and development.

We’re Free Of Nasties

What goes into our organic A2 protein range is important, but what we leave out makes us really stand out.

No Palm Oil

Because we believe in protecting our planets’ forests.

No Soy Oil

Because there are safer alternatives for essential fats.

No GMO’s

Because our farms and formulas are chemical free and Certified Organic by NASAA.

We’re A True Farm-To-Formula Range

How we make our premium organic A2 protein range sets us apart in the formula world. With our farms and manufacturing facility in the same location alongside the Great Ocean Road, we create a true “farm to formula” range.

Process Creation

Here’s why we keep this farm-to-formula process a priority.

A Fresher End Result

While most other formula brands craft their formulas with milk powders that have been in storage (for sometimes up to years in the past), we craft our range with farm fresh milk. Since our milk goes straight from the farm to manufacturing, you can rest assured our products are as fresh as they can get.

Higher Consumer Transparency

We believe parents should know exactly where and how their childrens’ products are created – with absolutely no secrets about where the milk comes from or where the product is manufactured. With our farms and manufacturing in the same location, it assures parents exactly how our range is created.
