Inorganic constituents of milk: I. Correlation of soluble calcium with citrate in bovine milk

  • Carl Holt (a1) and D. Donald Muir (a1)

Summary

A high correlation was found between soluble calcium and citrate concentrations during a study of seasonal changes in the composition of the commercial milk supply to South-west Scotland. A simple physicochemical model of the ion equilibria in the aqueous phase of milk suggests that the observed correlation is causal. This hypothesis was corroborated by an analysis of data on individual cow milks and by experiments involving the addition of citrate to milk at constant pH.
