We live in an era where all foods are classified into either healthy or not healthy. Dairy products still resist this classification and food scientists wonder whether their health properties depend on each specific type of dairy product.
Lactose intolerance is not so difficult to deal with Lactose intolerance is a problem that is becoming increasingly common; it is a real syndrome whose symptoms appear after consuming foodstuffs that contain even small amounts of lactose. Usually, it is lactase deficiency that provokes the disease, although other causes exist as well, either primary or
Protein in milk has several functional properties Protein in milk may represent a promising lifestyle intervention strategy for the prevention and management of various chronic disease including obesity, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. Milk is a protein-rich food, we all know that. Those of you who train regularly are probably familiar with one specific type:
Nutraceuticals from milk peptides? Not an easy task! In my previous post, I described the potential health effects of bioactive peptides derived from milk. In the same article though, I’ve also told you about the biggest problem that these peptides have: their extremely low bioavailability due to the fact that they get extensively hydrolyzed in
Bioactive peptides: are milk products a source of healthy compounds? Bioactive peptides in western diets derive mainly from milk consumption (Boutrou, Gwénaële and Sanchez-Rivera, 2015). These bioactive peptides have shown to have several health effects… at least in theory. What are bioactive peptides? As many other animal products, milk is rich in proteins which can
