The lactoperoxidase/H2O2 complex oxidizes thiocyanate to intermediary oxidation products which inhibit organisms such as lactic acid bacteria but kill coliforms, salmonellae, shigellae, pseudomonads etc. The system occurs naturally in man and animals and is part of the immunity protecting the mammary gland and particularly the newborn against infections. It is also used to preserve milk from spoilage.
