Summary

Treatment of milk with 0·05% (w/v) H2O2 for 8 h at 24°C had no significant effect on the concentrations of seven of the B-complex vitamins or of the fatsoluble vitamins A and E or of carotene. Rat tests showed that the nutritive value of the milk proteins was slightly reduced. This finding was confirmed by microbiological tests with Streptococcus zymogenes, which also showed that the loss was probably connected with that of methionine. The concentration of H2O2 used was effective in controlling bacterial growth during the incubation period, even in a sample of milk with a high initial bacterial count.
