Beskrivning: Dairy milk and milk products have been challenged due to their relatively high concentration of saturated fatty acids (SFA) and, therefore, are considered to be associated with cardio-vascular disease and cancer. However, recent research has revealed a number of ingredients in milk that may be salutary. Among these bioactive components are phytoestrogens (e.g. lignans and isoflavenoids), fatty acids (FA, e.g. c9t11 C18:2 (CLA)), vitamins (e.g. vitamin A and E), and endogenous hormones. Due to a higher proportion of forage in the ration, with high proportion of legumes and other herbs, organic milk quality is more and differently affected by the forage than conventionally produced milk that often is based on grass silage. There is limited knowledge regarding chemical and sensory characteristics of organic dairy milk internationally that has focused on organic grassland management and the milk salutary properties.

The objective of proposed project is to: - investigate how different forage species affect the fatty acid composition and the content of bioactive components such as tocopherols, carotenoids, selenium (Se) and phytoestrogenes of organic dairy milk. - investigate the biological activity of the collected dairy milk samples from the Nordic countries on normal and cancer cells.
