Human milk was collected from women in their 10th-14th weeks of lactation, and was analysed for amino acids. Corrections were made for losses of amino acids which were presumed to occur during acid hydrolysis, using a non-linear mathematical model that describes the simultaneous processes of amino acid yield and decay. The mean amino acid composition of the human milk was found to be similar to previously reported estimates, although the cysteine content of the human milk in the present study… CONTINUE READING
