Heat Stability of the Bile Salt-Stimulated Lipase in Human Milk Fortified with Sodium Taurocholate 1. Academic Article uri icon


  • Time-temperature relationships for heat-inactivation of the bile salt-stimulated lipase activity were compared in whole human milk and in the same product fortified to 9 mM/ml with sodium taurocholate. Heat treatments were varied from 45 to 70C for times ranging from 15s to 40 min. Enzyme activity was more heat stable in human milk fortified with taurocholate than in control samples. The temperature required for the onset of heat inactivation at 30-min holding time was increased from 45C for control samples to 60C following addition of taurocholate. A temperature differential of approximately 12C was required in the fortified milks to produce inactivation equivalent to that observed in the control milks over the heating range studied.
