Alternavita Daily September 20, 2018© Milk Whey Protein Combats Iron Overload Oxidative Stress And DNA Damage Whey protein comprises 20 % of total milk protein and it is rich in branched and essential amino acids, functional peptides, antioxidants and immunoglobulins. It provides benefits against a wide range of metabolic diseases. Protein is the most satiating macronutrient and protein-rich diets are known to exert beneficial effects on body composition and metabolism. Increasing numbers of studies are reporting that the protein fraction in diet is insufficient, creating widespread PEM (Protein Energy Malnutrition). Protein deficiency is a major public health concern. Whey protein is globular protein its main components are  β-lactoglobulins (35–65 %) and α-lactalbulins (12–25 %). The minor ingredients include immunoglobulins […]

Alternavita Daily August 25, 2018© Recap: Milk Proteins And Sugars Milk serum proteins are defined as substances that remain soluble in milk serum. These proteins are naturally formed during the production of cheese and account for 20% of the all protein in milk, such as: β-lactoglobulins α-lactalbumin immunoglobulins lactoferrin lactoperoxidase glycomacropeptide bovine serum albumin and other proteins Milk serum proteins are rapidly digested, and raise plasma amino acid concentrations. Therefore, milk serum proteins perform several functions, such as mineral absorption, improvement of protein synthesis, sensitivity to hormones, and decreased blood glucose and lipid levels. Sweet whey is a byproduct produced during the manufacture of rennet types of hard cheese, like Cheddar or Swiss cheese. Acid whey […]
