Title: A Study on the Type, Source and Composition of Milk Consumed In Khartoum State
Author: Majda El Jack, Salih
Abstract: This study was carried out in Khartoum State to determine type, source and composition of milk consumed by children, and to determine the chemical composition as affected by type and source of milk. Another part of the study was carried out in the same areas where most of milk samples were collected, using a questionnaire that covered many aspects, such as type and source of milk consumed, and amount of milk intake per day. The effect of parent education and financial status on the importance of food habits (mainly milk) was determined, the potentiality of all factors were evaluated. The results indicated that liquid milk was consumed either as raw goats or cow's milk and there were variations in fat percentage and total solids contents of these milk types even within the same type (cow's and goat's), while variations in ash and protein contents were not significant. The amount of milk consumed by children was small even among small sized families, but this situation was very clear among large families. Most children of even high income families consumed less than the minimum requirements of milk intake (2 cups of milk per day per child).
