A comparison between acidic and basic protein fractions from whey or milk for reduction of bone loss in the ovariectomised rat

Abstract:

The ability of whey acidic protein fractions to protect against bone loss due to ovariectomy (OVX) in the mature female rat was investigated. The bone bioactivity of these acidic protein fractions, isolated from both mineral acid whey protein concentrate (WPC) and rennet WPC, was compared with that of basic protein fractions isolated from both milk and rennet WPC. Fifty 6-month old rats that had been ovariectomised at 5.5 months were randomised into five groups of ten each. One group remained...
