Intake of milk and dairy foods are known to have beneficial effects on health for children, adults and elderly. Arla Food for Health sponsors science-based research on identification, isolation and characterization of health associated milk components, including validation, quality and up-scaling of such as well as the mechanisms behind the health benefits of dairy products and ingredients in-vitro, in-vivo and in clinical studies.
