Strategic Studies on Colostrum (Junnu) Collected from Katpadi , Southern Tamil Nadu for Pharmacological Use

Chacko Anu Betty, Lina Rose Varghese, Jennifer T Thomas, Suneetha V

Colostrum milk is an all-round liquid food that contains biologically active compounds other than carbohydrates, proteins and fatty acids like vitamins, immunoglobulin, enzymes, growth hormones, and minerals that form an essential component of our biological system. Colostrum milk is the first milk of the cow’s udder that seems to provide all these essential nutrients. The extraction techniques lead to separation of major biological compounds such as fat soluble, water soluble nutritive constituents which gives the idea of synthesizing a product that can be easily consumable to people. Various nutrients that constitute the colostrum milk are extracted from various sources to chemically synthesize a valuable product that could support and nourish human health. Several techniques of purification are carried out using an extraction protocol. High pressure liquid chromatography, SDS PAGE and bioassay techniques were used to identify nutrient of interest. This product is prepared devoid of lactose. Rapid sensitive separation and analysis was achieved combining all these contents to protect intolerance and supplement children from malnutrition. Plant sources that include green gram, cereals, green leafy vegetables and that of animal origin such as egg and colostrum milk are used to chemically synthesize milk. This supports human health, help relieve from possible infections and enable health nourisble.
