Accuracy of Fourier transform infrared spectrometry in determination of casein in dairy cows' milk.

Abstract

For practical purposes the casein content of milk is often estimated from the crude protein content using a general conversion factor. This is done even though it is known that several factors can influence the percentage of casein nitrogen in the total nitrogen (casein number). The uncontrolled variation in casein number affects optimization of cheese… (More)
