Abstract

Products with an higher content of unsaturated fatty acids interest the dairy sector. Modern analytical and statistical techniques provide accurate results on the contents of saturated, unsaturated, mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids in products from cow, goat and ewe milk. Mid infra-red spectroscopy with Fourier Transform Infra-Red technology (FTIR) can be applied as screening method, as milk payment parameter and as a tool for optimizing dairy cattle feeding.

Keywords: Mid infra-red spectroscopy (MIR), Fourier Transform Infra-Red technology (FTIR), saturated fatty acids, unsaturated fatty acids, cows milk, goats milk, ewes milk
