The free and ester cholesterol content of milk and dairy products

  • J. M. de Man


Free and total cholesterol contents of milk and a number of dairy products were determined. 5–10% of the total cholesterol was found present in the ester form in Cheddar cheese, butter and butterfat, and there is no evidence that this ratio was different from one dairy product to another. The results of these analyses were confirmed by thin layer chromatography.
