Colostrum Peer Review Journals

 Colostrum is the primary form of milk formed by the mammary glands of animals including many humans’ beings, immediately following delivery of the new-born. Colostrum is known colloquially as beestings, bisnings or first milk. Colostrum comprises antibodies to defend the new-born in contradiction of disease. Maximum species will produce colostrum just preceding to giving birth. In overall, protein absorption in colostrum is considerably higher than in milk. Fat absorption is considerably higher in colostrum than in milk in some species like sheep and horses, but lower in colostrum than in milk in some other species such as camels and humans. In swine, fat concentration of milk at 48 to 72 hours post-delivery may be sophisticated than in colostrum or in late-lactation milk. Fat absorption in bovine colostrum is extremely variable. New-borns have very immature and small digestive systems, and colostrum delivers its nutrients in a very concentrated low-volume form.
