Some Bullets calculating differences between Human milk and Bovine Milk!!

The composition of milk differs along with the animal that provides it. Particular specie gives milk which has everything essential included for the appropriate growth and development of the respective infant. Hence for the human infants, human milk serves comparatively better than bovine milk. Noting down statements from the outstanding experts of the field unfolds that before a human infant ages one, he/she should not be served with any form of cow, goat, condenses, dried and evaporated milk.

This is just because of the composition of the solution which sometimes can prove to be unfavorable for the kid and may reveal some disorders. Also the human milk and milk from cows hold similar water ratios still the remaining ingredients namely carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, fat and vitamins vary the most.

  • Protein – Protein plays an interesting role being one of the most essential components of the milk. The higher the protein concentration is, the more will be the growth rate of the respective taker. Leucine is an amino acid which stimulates the protein muscle synthesis. The infant will own the higher birth weight with higher leucine content in the milk. Rats have 11 grams per litre leucine in their milk and so they get double their birth weight in just four days.

Cat’s milk having 8.9 grams per litre doubles weight in just 10 competes days. Human milk only has 0.8 grams leucine per litre and so the human infants double their weight in around 180 days. Caseins and whey proteins are two segregated categories of the milk protein. Human milk holds these in ratio 40:60 whereas cow’s milk has the ratio 80:20. It is estimated that cow’s milk has double the protein than human milk where casein content in cow’s milk is very high. Casein is tough to digest and therefore human infant milk holds this in lesser ratio for making it easier for the infant to digest.

  • Fat – The fat content in milk differs according to the requirement of the infants of that specie. It is calculated that 100 grams of cow and human milk contains almost similar amount of fat but the fats remains saturated in case of cow milk and unsaturated in human milk. The heavier concentration of unsaturated fat in human milk is necessary for brain development of the human infants.

Humans develop their brain the most in the very first year of their life. The brain triples in size by the age of one with healthy supply of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Milk from cows is estimated to have lesser content of brain development fatty acids for the humans. Having saturated fat in milk from cows is highly useful in providing body growth.

  • Calcium – Cow’s milk has four times the calcium in human milk. This is because of the skeleton size of the calf that needs more calcium. Cow’s milk completes this very need of the calf and therefore is unfavorable for the human infants before the age of one. Although the human milk has lesser calcium yet it is easily digested as compared to the cow’s milk calcium.
