New Developments on Human Milk Protein Composition and Function
There are two main aims to the scientific research underlying the production of powdered milk (formulas) destined for feeding infants who are not breast-fed: to make such formulas as similar as possible to breast milk, and to obviate against the increasingly frequent phenomena of intollerance of cow’s milk, generally used as a substitute for breast milk. Biotechnological techniques are thought to have a possible useful application above all in the production of hypoallergenic milks.
