This work collects recent research in dietary protein. Topics of discussion include antimicrobial activity of lactoferrin and lactoferrin-derived peptides, dietary protein requirements for preterm infants in the neonatal period, antimicrobial activity of lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase in milk, and determination of protein degradability and its importance in ruminant nutrition. Other subjects covered include non-Ige mediated food allergy to dietary proteins in infants and young children, protein feeding and flock management for improving sheep milk and cheese features, nutritional characteristics of donkey's milk protein factor, and the role of dietary protein in the treatment of central nervous system disorders. Some other topics examined are changes in antioxidative properties of lactoglobulin preparation induced by age-related deamidation, biologically active peptides obtained from food proteins, and organic and transgenic soy and their effects when used in place of animal protein in infancy and old age in rats.
