Peptides isolated from in vitro digests of milk enhance iron uptake by caco-2 cells.

Abstract

Milk proteins, during digestion, produce a range of biologically active peptides. Among those are peptides that may enhance iron absorption. The objective of this project was to investigate the effect of isolated milk peptides on iron uptake. Cow's milk, 0% fat, was subjected to a modified in vitro digestion process. The milk digest was further fractionated… (More)
