<p> Bovine milk contains 3-4 % protein and almost 80% of the milk protein fraction consist of four caseins; α<sub>s1</sub>-casein, β-casein, α<sub>s2</sub>-casein and κ-casein. Most of the caseins in milk are assembled in casein micelles, which consist of several thousands of individual casein molecules and salts. The unique structure of casein micelles allows the delivery of large amounts of calcium and phosphate to the neonate. Considerable natural variation in casein content and composition exists between milk samples from individual cows, however the impact of these variations on casein micelle structure and technological properties of dairy products are lar...
