A prototype of microwave pasteurizer has been proposed as an alternative for holder pasteurization (HP) routinely used in Human Milk Bank (HMB), ensuring microbiological safety of human milk (HM). It was shown that the time of heat generation was about 15–16 min shorter by applying the microwave than in HP. Total inactivation of heat-sensitive bacteria Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and Staphylococcus...
The effect of convective heating and microwave heating on antioxidant enzymes in pooled mature human milk
The effects of convective and microwave heating at constant temperature (62.5, 66 and 70 °C) on the activity of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, SOD; catalase, CAT; glutathione peroxidase, GPx) in pooled mature human milk were compared. Activities of the enzymes were determined using spectrophotometric kits. Activity of GPx decreased significantly in the first stage of heating when milk samples were warmed to pasteurisation...
The effect of UV-C irradiation of human milk on lipid oxidation, content of antioxidants (vitamin C and catalase, CAT) and bactericidal compounds (lysozyme), as well as the total antioxidant capacity (TAC), of the breast milk was investigated. In parallel, the extent of inactivation of some bacteria was also determined. UV-C at doses from 85 to 740 J L−1 caused total inactivation of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, but...
