Milk is an important component of nutrition of human and animal neonates and has attracted interest of food technologists, clinicians, and biochemists. Composition of milk can be modified by dietary manipulations of milch animals and altering the genetic make-up of milk-producing species.
Milk can be modified by dietary and genetic manipulation
Milk having modified constituents has applications to improve health.
