What is it about?

The present study focused on the isolation and purification of individual casein fractions (α, β and κ) from cow's milk . Isolated fractions were analysed for various in-vitro characteristics. Results confirmed isolation of pure casein fractions from cow's milk which could serve as a rich source of bioactive peptides for nutraceutical/pharmaceutical applications.

Why is it important?

The milk proteins are excellent source of bioactive molecule for various diseases. The work explores a novel method for separation of casein fractions which could be utilized for the preparation of nutraceutical and functional food molecule for potential health benefits.


Developing a novel strategy for separation of casein fractions was very critical, since they are very close to each other with some physico-chemical properties. Collaborating with the well experienced co-authors is a great experience for developing such a work and drafting it as an acceptable form for readers
