Cattle to Produce Breast Milk Substitute?

by

The following is an article from AllHeadlineNews.com:

Scientists from China Agricultural University in Beijing have successfully cloned 17 cows that can produce milk similar to human breast milk.

 

The milk, which has the same nutrients found in human breast milk, can substitute for the human liquid, according to Prof. Ning Li, who led the research and is director of the State Key Laboratories for AgroBiotechnology at the CAU.

The milk contains human proteins such as lysozyme, lactoferrin and alpha-lactalbumin,


Lysozyme, a bactericidal protein that protects human infants from microbial infections, also contains protein, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, and vitamins essential for an infant’s growth and development.

Li said the modified milk can be used as a substitute for breast milk and will be available in supermarkets in 10 years’ time.
