Zinc-binding capacity of yak casein hydrolysate and the zinc-releasing characteristics of casein hydrolysate-zinc complexes.

Many factors affect the bioavailability of dietary Zn, which leads to its low availability in some food systems and Zn nutrient deficiency. However, some proteins or peptides can form complexes with Zn and increase its absorption and bioavailability in intestinal conditions. The purpose of this work was to determine the Zn-binding activity of yak casein… CONTINUE READING
