Opioid peptides in milk

Post by Ducky »

I discovered that the opioide peptides are in the A1 protein which can be found in cow milk and not in other animals like goat, sheep etc.. milk.

I know there is still the hormone issue but still its a good news.

Im sorry, but that is NO good news

A1 is one of the most common variants of beta-casein in cows milk.
Opioid peptides are present in both casein and whey proteins. Most opioid fragments are found in alpha-, beta- or kappa-casein, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin and lactotransferrin.
Caseins and whey are present in the milk of all mammals.
Beta-casomorphins have been shown to have a strong effect on the environmental adaptation, learning and memory of (all) young mammals in general.

Its not that opioid peptides have been shown not to be present in maternal milk from other mammals.
Its just that the maternal milk of most species (mammals) has not been investigated for this yet.
Which is something VERY different.
In those mammals investigated (humans (also), cows), they have been shown to be present.
Concentration of beta-casein in goats milk is actually 43% higher in goat milk than in cow milk
Opioid peptides are also found in the beta-caseins in sheep milk.
