This study tests the hypothesis that infants receiving milk-powder containing fortified spread (lipid-based nutrient supplement) as a complementary food for one year have lower incidence o...
In preterm infants with birth weights less than 1500 grams, does iron supplementation with 2mg/kg/day in addition to feeding with routine iron-fortified milk (formula or fortified mother's...
Iron deficiency and anemia in infants and young children impair neurodevelopment. Efficacious interventions for reducing the prevalences of iron deficiency and anemia, under controlled con...
The goal of this study is to test the hypothesis that daily ingestion of a 'synbiotic' for 4 weeks will improve intestinal function, ease immune system overactivation, and increase blood C...
The purpose of this study is to compare the recovery rates of moderately malnourished Malawian children treated with either milk-enriched corn/soy blend, soy/peanut fortified spread or a c...
Vitamin D deficiency is a health problem in both developed and developing countries. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of multivitamin fortified milk consumption on vitamin D status am...
Anomalous small-angle X-ray scattering (ASAXS) and resonant soft X-ray scattering (RSoXS) are two related techniques that can enable element-specific structural information to be obtained. The develop...
The aim of this work was to evaluate the phenolic compounds and antioxidant activity of goat milk yogurt characterized by different α-casein genotypes and fortified with Rhus coriaria leaf powder. Th...
This study for the first time reported a receptor based chemiluminescence immunoassay for analysis of tetracyclines. During the experiments, the gene of TetR protein was transformed into Rosetta-gami(...
Milk is a rich source of transforming growth factor (TGF)-β which supports intestinal mucosal homeostasis of infants. Milk may also have beneficial effects on the integrity of the oral cavity, its be...
Any food that has been supplemented with essential nutrients either in quantities that are greater than those present normally, or which are not present in the fortified food. The supplementation of cereals with iron and vitamins is an example of fortified food. Fortified food includes also enriched food to which various nutrients have been added to compensate for those essential nutrients removed by refinement or processing. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Allergic reaction to milk (usually cow's milk) or milk products. MILK HYPERSENSITIVITY should be differentiated from LACTOSE INTOLERANCE, an intolerance to milk as a result of congenital deficiency of lactase.
The processes of milk secretion by the maternal MAMMARY GLANDS after PARTURITION. The proliferation of the mammary glandular tissue, milk synthesis, and milk expulsion or let down are regulated by the interactions of several hormones including ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; PROLACTIN; and OXYTOCIN.
Expulsion of milk from the mammary alveolar lumen, which is surrounded by a layer of milk-secreting EPITHELIAL CELLS and a network of myoepithelial cells. Contraction of the myoepithelial cells is regulated by neuroendocrine signals.
The major protein constituents of milk are CASEINS and whey proteins such as LACTALBUMIN and LACTOGLOBULINS. IMMUNOGLOBULINS occur in high concentrations in COLOSTRUM and in relatively lower concentrations in milk. (Singleton and Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed, p554)
