Handbook of Milk of Non-Bovine Mammals, 2nd Edition

Handbook of Milk of Non-Bovine Mammals, 2nd Edition


Featuring contributions by an international team of dairy and nutrition experts, this second edition of the popular Handbook of Milk of Non-Bovine Mammals provides comprehensive coverage of milk and dairy products derived from all non-bovine dairy species.

Milks derived from domesticated dairy species other than the cow are an essential dietary component for many countries around the world. Especially in developing and under-developed countries, milks from secondary dairy species are essential sources of nutrition for the humanity. Due to the unavailability of cow milk and the low consumption of meat, the milks of non-bovine species such as goat, buffalo, sheep, horse, camel, Zebu, Yak, mare and reindeer are critical daily food sources of protein, phosphate and calcium. Furthermore, because of hypoallergenic properties of certain species milk including goats, mare and camel are increasingly recommended as substitutes in diets for those who suffer from cow milk allergies. This book:

  • Discusses key aspects of non-bovine milk production, including raw milk production in various regions worldwide
  • Describes the compositional, nutritional, therapeutic, physio-chemical, and microbiological characteristics of all non-bovine milks
  • Addresses processing technologies as well as various approaches to the distribution and consumption of manufactured milk products
  • Expounds characteristics of non-bovine species milks relative to those of human milk, including nutritional, allergenic, immunological, health and cultural factors.
  • Features six new chapters, including one focusing on the use of non-bovine species milk components in the manufacture of infant formula products

Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the many advances that have occurred in the dairy industry since the publication of the acclaimed first edition, Handbook of Milk of Non-Bovine Mammals, 2nd Edition is an essential reference for dairy scientists, nutritionists, food chemists, animal scientists, allergy specialists, health professionals, and allied professionals.
