Current non-bovine milk production trends suggest that a wide range of animal- and plant-derived milk and milk-like products will become available to consumers in the future. It is important for consumers and industry to gain more insights into the macro- and micronutrient composition of these non-bovine milks and their contribution to nutrition and health. Due to rapid changes in consumer milk consumption trends and the emergence of novel non-bovine milk industries (with production based on small ruminants and plants), information on unique aspects of these products in terms of bioavailability of natural compounds and biologically active compounds that support health and wellbeing is still scarce. This Special Issue welcomes novel and rigorous research contributions in any of the following topics:
- Novel information on macro- and micronutrients of non-bovine milks;
- Safety of non-bovine milks;
- Health aspects of non-bovine milks (human and animal intervention studies to examine their impact on bone, mood, brain health, etc.);
- Nutritional effects in infants, adults and senior subjects (metabolism, diet and weight managements, bone health, growth, etc.)
