Special Issue "Raw Milk Quality Can be Improved"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2021.
Interests: Dairy Science; Milk; Milk Quality
Milk has always received a great amount attention for numerous researchers, as can easily be evidenced by a quick search through the databases Web of Science or Scopus, where there are numerous original articles and reviews or meta-analyses.
Milk is a strategic commodity and staple food. Its worldwide production was 864.1 million metric tons in 2018, with cow milk representing 83% of that. Researchers therefore permanently investigate the quality parameters of raw milk and factors affecting them. This Special Issue shall be focused on the quality characteristics of raw milk, in particular on major and minor components and on factors affecting them from the nutritional and technological points of view. Relevant reviews and meta-analyses dealing with current topics will be preferred. Such topics are, e.g., ways of improving milk nutritional value (including application of recent state of genetics), health unwholesomeness, dealing with both microbial and chemical contamination, methods of quality testing, and interactions between raw milk and dairy products. Moreover, the topic of methane emission from cattle will be incorporated.
This Special Issue will share overall information not only with researchers, but also students, specialists in human nutrition and health, and, last but not least, experts from the dairy industry.
