Taurine (Tau) is a sulfonated amino acid which is not incorporated into polypeptide structures and whose importance in the growth of newborns and young children has been well established. It is the most abundant free amino acid in goat's milk, where it occurs in higher amounts than in other kinds of milk. Tau and other free amino acids were analysed by high-performance liquid chromatography in Apulian Cacioricotta goat's cheese. Tau was present in both fresh and ripened cheese, providing a new reason for enhancing the value of this typical local dairy product.

Abstract

Taurine (Tau) is a sulfonated amino acid which is not incorporated into polypeptide structures and whose importance in the growth of newborns and young children has been well established. It is the most abundant free amino acid in goat's milk, where it occurs in higher amounts than in other kinds of milk. Tau and other free amino acids were analysed by high-performance liquid chromatography in Apulian Cacioricotta goat's cheese. Tau was present in both fresh and ripened cheese, providing a new reason for enhancing the value of this typical local dairy product.
