Bovine Beta Casein Variants : Implications to Human Nutrition and Health

  title={Bovine Beta Casein Variants : Implications to Human Nutrition and Health},
  author={A. Clarke and M. Trivedi}
Milk is a whole-food with numerous nutritive components; especially for infants, as milk/milkbased formulas are the only source of nutrition. However, casein free diet is recommended for infants with immunological sensitivities; yet the reason is unknown. It is hard to eliminate milk from diet of sensitive individuals. Several variants of β-casein (~25-30% of cows’ milk-proteins) are genetically determined; A1, A2, A3, B, C etc. A2 is the original form of bovine β-casein and is similar to other… CONTINUE READING
