- Lactoferrin is a

secreted by some acinar cells.
- Lactoferrin is a
substance belonging to the Cytokine family, Cytokines are responsible
for coordinating the human cellular response that protects us from most
infections, cancers and tumors
Hydrolysate of lkactoferrin is obtained by pasteurization and
freeze-drying for use in infant formula. In addition, lactoferricin can
be purified from this lactoferrin hydrolysate by two-step hydrophobic
chromatography. The peptide is eluted with an acidic buffer, the eluted
solution is concentrated by reverse osmosis, and finally, lactoferricin
is produced by freeze-drying as a powder with over 95% purity. This
production process for lactoferricin has also been patented.
- Fonterra has built a
new dairy protein processing plant in order to meet growing demand for
lactoferrin in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan.

for bovine lactoferrin is thought to be worth around €100 million per

be purified from human breast milk, it is prohibitively expensive —
