Content of inositol in human and cows milk

, : Content of inositol in human and cows milk. Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture Tamagawa University (19): 13-19

To clarify the effect of inositol on the growth and development of newborn infants, the content of myo-inositol in colostrum and transitional milk from human and cow's milk was determined by gas chromatography. The average content of total myo-inositol in human milk was 23.3 .+-. 9.6 mg/100 ml in colostrum and 14.0 .+-. 2.6 mg/100 ml in transitional milk; for cow's milk it was 9.2 .+-. 2.9 mg/100 ml and 8.6 .+-. 0.3 mg/100 ml, respectively. The average content of total myo-inositol in colostrum is higher in both human and cow's milk when compared with those of transitional milk, decreasing with the progression of the stage of lactation. From the viewpoint of infant formula manufacturing, more attention should be paid to the fact that human milk is much richer in the content of total myo-inositol in comparison with that of cow's milk. The average content of lipid-bound myo-inositol in human and cow's milk was 0.18 .+-. 0.5 mg/100 ml and 0.19 .+-. 0.09 mg/100 ml, respectively. Little difference was found in the content of lipid-bound myo-inositol between human and cow's milk, contrary to the content of total myo-inositol.
