Dairy Products: Strategies to Improve Their Healthy and Nutritional Properties
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2021) | Viewed by 7687
The scientific interest in the nutritional properties of dairy products is in contrast with the general opinion about their detrimental impact on human health. In particular, animal fat consumption and cardiovascular disease are often associated, and a limited consumption of animal products is thus recommended. However, the emphasis has recently shifted from fat quantity to fat quality, underscoring the value of dairy products in this respect. In addition, dairy products can be natural carriers of components beneficial to health, such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), vitamins, etc. Moreover, they can be easily customized to meet human nutritional and healthy needs, either naturally, by modifying animal feeding, or technologically, by enriching them with functional ingredients.
The objective of this Special Issue is to update and clarify the role of dairy products in human health and provide advanced information on animal rearing systems, feeding and technological strategies useful to improve the content of healthy and nutritional components in dairy products.
This Special Issue will welcome scientific contributions on strategies to improve the content in healthy and nutritional components in milk and related dairy products under different approaches: feeding and technological strategies. Particular interest will be also directed to clinical studies on functional dairy products.
