The subject is focused on milk proteins, lactose and its derivatives and biologically active components of milk with potential application in functional foods. Chemistry of dairy products is focused on changes and interactions of components by used technology e.g. heat treatment of milk an its changes during storage or cheese ripening. Analytical methods suitable for monitoring of these changes are also included.
