A competitive enzyme immunoassay for screening of the presence of Bovine Rennet Whey in bovine milk and in milk of other species and sources.
Bovine Rennet Whey (BRW) is a by-product of cheese production from cow milk. Adulteration of skimmed milk powder with BRW is cost attractive however illegal. The EuroProxima Milk Fraud/BRW ELISA detects an epitope located on the glycomacropeptide (CMP) part of kappa-casein. This CMP is released during cheese production and remains as waist product in the curd. CMP detected in milk powder is a sign for fraudulent mixing.
The Bovine Rennet Wey ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay based on antibodies directed against K-casein.
