Addicting subtances in Milk

Postby rischott » Wed 22 Mar 2006 02:35

What are the products in milk that are addicting?

Are the opioid peptides (beta-casomorphins, alpha-caseïn exorphins, casoxins, beta-casorphins, alpha-lactorphins, beta-lactorphins and lactaferroxins) the addicting substances since opium is addicting by nature? Or are there others?

To get the suckling 'addicted' to the mothers milk,
so that it will drink enough, which increases its survival chances.

I guess that in human milk are also addictive substances, are they also hard to digest proteins ?
