As they are necessary feta maintaining a proper metabolism, they have to be supplied with the food, They are called essential amino acids, and all of them are present in milk protein.”

Remember, heating/pasteurization kills and/or alters these very necessary and healthy amino acids. See these articles for further information: http://www.realmilk.com/whichchoose.html

Page 25 – Whey Protiens: “whey proteins in general and in particular gave very high nutritional values….”; discusses lactalbumin and lactoglubulin

Page 27 – Denatured Proteins – takes place through high heat, acid exposure, radiation or violent agitation; enzymes lose functionality – irreversible – yet another reason against pasteurization

Page 28 – Bases in milk: lactice acid, citric acid and phosphoric acid; ENZYMES in milk including the most important ones: peroxidase, catalase, phosphatase and lipase! Enzymes – a “biocatalyst”; enzyme functioning illustrations included.

Page 29 – Lactose, milk sugar, will be of most interest on this page.
