100K to support research on beta caso morphines in milk – ECU Frankie Busetti

A group of scientists led by Dr. Nguyen Duc Doan (Faculty of Food Science, Vietnam National University of Agriculture) collaborating with A/Prof. Vicky Solah, A/Prof. Stuart Johnson (School of Molecular and Life Science, Curtin University, Australia) and Dr. Francesco Busetti (School of Science, Edith Cowan University, Australia) has successfully applied for a project entitled “Effect of heat treatment on concentration of beta casomorphins in A1A1 and A2A 2 milk and in their digests following in vitro simulated-gastro intestinal digestion” funded by National Foundation for Science and Technology Development, Vietnam. This project will focus on the identification of protein β-casein A 1 and protein β-casein A2 in fresh milk in Vietnam and evaluate the impact of pasteurization and sterilization on the change in beta casomorphin 4, 5, 6 and 7 in A1A1 milk and A 2A2 milk; and in the digests of these milk products as part of an in vitro study. The project will be performed in Vietnam and Australia from 1/2018-1/2021. The analytical work (mainly sample analyses) will be paid analyses and conducted at ECU.
