Analysis and applications of milk fat globule membrane material

Abstract
In milk, lipids occur in the form of globules with a diameter varying from 0.1 to 15 µm. These fat globules have a surrounding thin film which is called the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM). Fat in the core of the globules is composed primarily of neutral triacylglycerides. The lipid fraction in the MFGM comprises mainly polar lipids, i.e.phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), phosphatidylinositol (PI), phosphatidylserine (PS), sphingomyelin (SM), glucosylceramide (GluCer), lactosylceramide (LacCer) and a limited amount of gangliosides. The protein moiety of the MFGM has a specific composition, consisting of many glycosylated proteins, which is totally different from that of milk plasma. Milk contains as little as 1.5 g/L MFGM material. However, this material received much attention in recent years due to both its health beneficial properties and technological functionalities. Findings relating to these aspects of MFGM will be covered in this lecture. The literature as well as laboratory results concerning the isolation of MFGM, analysis of MFGM, and applications of MFGM material in food processing will be reviewed to give a full and up-to-date account of MFGM.
