True protein value of milk and dairy products

Authors: Duncan A. Rouch, Peter Roupas and Hubert Roginski


A statistical analysis was performed on results produced by a range of methods used to calculate the value of the protein content of infant formulae that were quoted in a report by the European Commission (2003, Report of the Scientific Committee on Food on the Revision of Essential Requirements of Infant Formulae and Follow-on Formulae). This report recommended that the nitrogen conversion value be reduced from 6.38 to 6.25. It appears that the data presented in the report do not support this recommendation. Nevertheless, the report's data underscore the importance of true protein and Non-Protein Nitrogen analyses of milk products. For Australia to gain the most benefit from true protein analysis, a number of standards will need to be revised.
