Bioactive Components of Milk
edited by Zsuzsanna Bosze

Of all food products, dairy foods have the most potential concerning functional foods. Therefore, there is a tremendous amount of interest in value-added milk products and the identification of components in food which have health benefits.

Bioactive Components of Milk discusses these derived components and their diverse activities including: the stimulation of beneficial microflora, alerting the immune system to the presence of potential pathogens and allergens, binding and eliminating toxins, etc.

Part One focuses on bioactive milk lipid components, which vary widely among mammalian species.

Part Two describes different aspects of biological active colostrums and milk proteins and their derivatives, with special concern on species specific effects.

Part Three covers milk peptides and their protective effects.

Part Four reviews the production of recombinant human proteins in the milk of livestock animals - including ethical issues - and the aims of altering milk composition for the benefit of both the animals themselves and the consumers.

Part Five focuses on the influence of ruminants’ nutrition on the biological activity of milk.
