Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0100047A1] Milk is commonly and extensively consumed in many societies where the risk and incidence of diabetes, vascular disease (CHD, CVA, PVD) and some cancers are also high. Death is a frequent sequel of systemic vascular wall damage, resulting from exposure to high sugar levels in diabetes and also from high plasma homocyst(e)ine (tHcy) levels that affect much of the population and comprise a major risk factor for vascular disease. Diabetes is similarly widespread. Given (1) widespread and regular consumption of milk, (2) the possibility to control tHcy by treating the underlying folate (and other vitamin) insufficiency, (3) the opportunity to simply include control of neural tube defects and (4) the presumed causal link between diabetes and type A1 with type B casein consumption, the invention offers remediation by supplying a population with a modified milk or milk product including (1) fortification using cobalamin, pyridoxine, folic acid, and betaine, with (2) a substantially type A2 casein fraction only. In addition, exploitation of the immunological properties of beta-casomorphin 9 (a peptide digest fraction of A2 beta-casein) may assist in control of diabetes. Practical and convenient fortified diets include treated, selected milks and food products including derivatives of milk, also selected milks together with treated cereals.
