Autorenporträt
Milk s many healthful properties include stimulating beneficial microflora, alerting the immune system to the presence of potential pathogens and allergens, and protecting consumers by binding and eliminating toxins. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the bioactive components derived from milk and their diverse activities. The book is divided into four parts. The first part focuses on bioactive milk lipid components, which vary widely among mammalian species. The second part describes different aspects of biologically active colostrums and milk proteins and their derivatives. The third part reviews the production of recombinant human proteins in the milk of livestock animals and the process of altering milk composition for the benefit of the animals themselves and consumers. The final part focuses on the effect of ruminant s nutrition on the biological activity of milk.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"This multi-authored and international volume presents recent scientific advances on bioactive components of milk of both livestock and human. The ultimate goal is to create and use genetically engineered components from livestock milk ... . The review format of the articles includes historical discovery dates of particular components and leads to extensive and valuable reference lists. ... In addition to researchers in their respective fields, this volume will appeal to lactation consultants seeking scientific explanations for the unique nature of human milk."
