  • Casein
    Casein (/ˈkeɪs.ɪn/ or /ˈkeɪˌsiːn/, from Latin caseus, "cheese") is the name for a family of related phosphoproteins (αS1, αS2, β, κ).
  • Breast milk
    Breast milk is the milk produced by the breasts (or mammary glands) of a human female for her baby.
  • Colostrum
    Colostrum (known colloquially as beestings, bisnings or first milk) is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals (including humans) in late pregnancy.
  • Areolar glands
    Areolar glands or Glands of Montgomery are sebaceous glands in the areola surrounding the nipple.
  • Infant formula
    Infant formula is a manufactured food designed and marketed for feeding to babies and infants under 12 months of age, usually prepared for bottle-feeding or cup-feeding from powder (mixed with water) or liquid (with or without additional water).
  • Mammary gland
    A mammary gland is an exocrine gland in mammals that produces milk to feed young offspring.
  • Powdered milk
    Powdered milk or dried milk is a manufactured dairy product made by evaporating milk to dryness.
  • Prolactin
    Prolactin (PRL), also known as luteotropic hormone or luteotropin, is a protein that in humans is best known for its role in enabling mammals, usually females, to produce milk.
  • Buttermilk
    Buttermilk refers to a number of dairy drinks.
  • Butterfat
    Butterfat or milkfat is the fatty portion of milk.
  • Nipple
    (This article is about the anatomical structure. For other uses, see Nipple (disambiguation).) In its most general form, a nipple is a structure from which a fluid emanates.
  • Hyperprolactinaemia
    Hyperprolactinaemia or hyperprolactinemia is the presence of abnormally high levels of prolactin in the blood.
  • Lactiferous duct
    Lactiferous ducts form a tree branched system connecting the lobules of the mammary gland to the tip of the nipple.
  • Condensed milk
    Condensed milk is cow's milk from which water has been removed.
  • Lactose
    Lactose is a disaccharide sugar composed of galactose and glucose that is found in milk.
  • Lactose intolerance
    Lactose intolerance is the inability of adults and children to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and to a lesser extent dairy products, causing side effects.
  • Whey
    Whey is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained.
  • Soured milk
    Soured milk is a food product produced from the acidification of milk.
  • Baby food
    Baby food is any soft, easily consumed food, other than breastmilk or infant formula, that is made specifically for babies, roughly between the ages of four to six months and two years.
  • Milk allergy
    A milk allergy is a food allergy, an adverse immune reaction to one or more of the constituents of milk from any animal (most commonly alpha S1-casein, a protein in cow's milk).
  • Organic milk
    Organic milk refers to a number of milk products from livestock raised according to organic farming methods.
  • Milk Marketing Board
    The Milk Marketing Board was a producer-run product marketing board, established by statute in 1933 to control milk production and distribution in the United Kingdom.
  • Evaporated milk
    Evaporated milk, known in some countries as unsweetened condensed milk, is a shelf-stable canned milk product with about 60% of the water removed from fresh milk.
  • Lactation
    Lactation describes the secretion of milk from the mammary glands and the period of time that a mother lactates to feed her young.
  • Whey Acidic Protein
    In molecular biology, the protein domain Whey acidic protein (WAP) has been identified as a major whey protein in milk and is important in regulating the proliferation of mammary epithelial cells.
