World Milk Day is an international day established by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to recognize the importance of milk as a global food. It is observed on June 1 each year since 2001.
Milk proteins are important sources of essential amino acids like tryptophan and lysine. Proteins in the diet supply the amino acids required for the growth of infants and children and for the maintenance of tissues in adults. It is an important component of a balanced diet and contains numerous valuable constituents. Considerable acclaimed health benefits of milk are related to its proteins, not only for their nutritive value but also for their biological properties. Scientific evidence suggests that anticarcinogenic activities, antihypertensive properties, immune system modulation, and other metabolic features of milk, are affiliated with its proteins.
