Abstract:

Various chemical constituents of Kankrej milk fat namely moisture, free fatty acids, carbonyl value and unsaponifiable matter were analyzed in the present study for a period of 12 months. The average unsaponifiable content of Kankrej milk fat sample was 423 mg/100 g, while cholesterol content was found to be 320 mg/100g. β-Carotene content of Kankrej milk fat was observed to be lower (2.9 µg/g) while vitamin A level of Kankrej milk fat was observed to be higher (34.5 IU/g) than those reported for other indigenous breeds. An average moisture content of Kankrej milk fat sample was 0.19 per cent, while free fatty acids content was found to be 0.20 per cent. Total carbonyl value of Kankrej milk fat was 4.9 µM/g of milk fat. Autoxidative study at accelerated storage conditions (80±1ï‚°C) revealed that Kankrej milk fat showed better oxidative stability may be due to lower content of unsaturated fatty acids. The average value for unsaponifiable and cholesterol content in Kankrej milk fat was highest during November to February while levels of β-carotene and vitamin A were higher during July to October reflecting seasonal variations.
