    Background -- Milk and dairy products provide a range of essential nutrients and also contain health active compounds. The concentrations of some of these compounds in dairy products can be enhanced by fortification, through cow genetics or by nutritional management of the herd. Consumers in...

  • Iodine concentrations in milk. O'Brien, B.; Gleeson, D.; Jordan, K. // Irish Journal of Agricultural & Food Research;2013, Vol. 52 Issue 2, p209 

    Iodine tends to be supplemented at farm level in the expectation of increasing cow health and fertility. There is concern that such practices may result in high milk iodine, which could affect ingredients for infant formula and, thus, dairy export markets. The objective of this study was to...
