Effects of milk-derived bioactives: an overview

Br J Nutr. 2000 Nov;84 Suppl 1:S3-10. doi: 10.1017/s000711450000218x.

Abstract

Milk contains various components with physiological functionality. Peptides derived from caseins and whey proteins including opioid peptides, antihypertensive peptides, casein phosphopeptides, alpha- and beta-lactorphins and albutensin have been shown to possess various bioactive properties. This review considers an overview of the bioactive components in milk proteins and whey and their physiological function.
