Technological Interventions in Dairy Science Book Description :

This volume covers a selection of important novel technological interventions in dairy science, from the physical properties of milk and other milk products to nonthermal processing of milk. It also discusses safety methods in dairy science, which includes cleaning-in-place and techniques to determine adulteration in milk. Milk is a perishable commodity, and being rich in nutrients, it acts as the perfect substrate for the growth of microflora (sometimes dangerous for consumption). To reduce this, different thermal and nonthermal techniques are used. Thermal treatments are common techniques used for extending the shelf life of milk, such as, for example, pasteurization, sterilization, and UHT, but loss of nutrients is a concern associated with these treatments. Nonthermal treatments like high-pressure processing, pulse electric field, ultra-sonication, and irradiation are also explored in the processing of milk to minimize the loss of nutrients as compared to thermal treatment. Post-process contamination is also a major factor that can affect the shelf life of milk, and safe packaging plays an important role when the milk and milk products are stored at refrigeration or ambient temperature. Many advances in these dairy technologies are presented in this informative volume. Technological Interventions in Dairy Science: Innovative Approaches in Processing, Preservation, and Analysis of Milk Products will prove valuable for industrial professionals, scientists, regulatory personnel, consultants, academics, students and field-related personnel. The book also attempts to bridge the gap between research and industrial application of recent techniques.

Whitewash Book Description :

North Americans are some of the least healthy people on Earth. Despite advanced medical care and one of the highest standards of living in the world, one in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and 50 percent of US children are overweight. This crisis in personal health is largely the result of chronically poor dietary and lifestyle choices. In Whitewash, nutritionist Joseph Keon unveils how North Americans unwittingly sabotage their health every day by drinking milk, and he shows that our obsession with calcium is unwarranted. Citing scientific literature, Whitewash builds an unassailable case that not only is milk unnecessary for human health, its inclusion in the diet may increase the risk of serious diseases including: Prostate, breast, and ovarian cancers Osteoporosis Diabetes Vascular disease Crohn's disease Many of America's dairy herds contain sick and immunocompromised animals whose tainted milk regularly makes it to market. Cow's milk is also a sink for environmental contaminants and has been found to contain traces of pesticides, dioxins, PCBs, rocket fuel, and even radioactive isotopes. Whitewash offers a completely fresh, candid, and comprehensively documented look behind dairy's deceptively green pastures and gives readers a hopeful picture of life after milk. Joseph Keon has been a wellness consultant and nutrition and fitness expert for over twenty-five years. He is considered a leading authority on public health and has written three books, including Whole Health: The Guide to Wellness of Body and Mind and The Truth About Breast Cancer.

Milk is nature’s most complete food, and dairy productsare considered to be the most nutritious foods of all. Thetraditional view of the role of milk has been greatly expanded inrecent years beyond the horizon of nutritional subsistence ofinfants: it is now recognized to be more than a source of nutrientsfor the healthy growth of children and nourishment of adulthumans. Alongside its major proteins (casein and whey), milk containsbiologically active compounds, which have important physiologicaland biochemical functions and significant impacts upon humanmetabolism, nutrition and health. Many of these compounds have beenproven to have beneficial effects on human nutrition andhealth. This comprehensive reference is the first to address such a widerange of topics related to milk production and human health,including: mammary secretion, production, sanitation, qualitystandards and chemistry, as well as nutrition, milk allergies,lactose intolerance, and the bioactive and therapeutic compoundsfound in milk.

Milk Proteins Book Description :

Milk proteins have nutritional value and extraordinary biological properties. Research over the last decades has provided new insight into the structure and the function of milk bioactive peptides. Some of these peptides are delivered directly into milk, and some are encrypted in major proteins such as caseins and lactoglobulins. These peptides have antimicrobial functions modulating the gut microflora. Even when milk is undisputedly the first food for mammals, milk proteins sometimes can be a health threat, either because of allergic reaction or because of toxicity. In this regard, in vitro studies showed donkey's casein and major whey proteins to be more digestible than cows' for human consumption. In this book, readers will find updated research on the major milk proteins' structure, bioactive peptides, milk protein allergy, therapeutic strategies, and chemical markers that can be used to detect cow milk intolerance in infants. This book provides the most current scientific information on milk proteins, from structure to biological properties. It will be of great benefit for those interested in milk production, milk chemistry, and human health.
