Colostrum is the initial milk secreted by mammals following parturition, the composition and physicochemical properties of which are highly dynamic and variable. The composition and physicochemical properties of colostrum during the initial post-partum period has not been systematically reviewed for many years, although the topic remains of interest both to milk producers and processors. In this article, the current understanding of the composition of colostrum, i.e. carbohydrates, proteins… Expand
Camel Colostrum Composition, Nutritional Value, and Nutraceuticals

Effect of early lactation stage on goat colostrum: Assessment of lipid and oligosaccharide compounds
TLDR
While fat and protein content decreased, increasing amounts of lactose were detected during lactation and oligosaccharide were significantly affected by lactation time; their content drastically decreased after 48 h of lactation, however, the high content of oligosACcharide promotes goat colostrum as a good functional ingredient.
