Abstract

In vivo digestion of proteins is initiated in the stomach by pepsins, and in some young animals by chymosin. It has been shown that milk coagulation in the stomach contributes to slowing down the degradation and it retains some peptides; casein degradation into small peptides takes place afterwards. β-lactoglobulin appears to be resistant to gastric proteolysis, but α-lactalbumin is hydrolyzed when stomach pH is about 3.5.
