Lactoferrin has antibacterial, antifungal, iron binding/transfer, antiviral, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. These functional capacities of lactoferrin depend on the structure of the multifunctional protein. Lactoferrin is usually extracted from cow’s milk and therefore added and mixed into various commercial food products, for example in cosmetics, infant formula, toothpaste and nutritional supplements. This multifunctional protein is sensitive to denaturation caused by certain physico-chemical stresses and temperature. Therefore, the lactoferrin extraction process coupled with the processing parameters of food products containing lactoferrin must be improved and optimized in order to avoid denaturation. Lactoferrin is one of the important components of the immune system. The antibacterial and antifungal characteristics of the protein mainly act as a defense mechanism in the body. For this reason, lactoferrin offers antibacterial and antifungal capacity to human infants.

Lactoferrin (formerly known as lactotransferrin) is a glycoprotein and is classified in the transferrin family. Lactoferrin has the ability to transfer and bind ferric ions (Fe3+). This multifunctional protein has many health benefits regarding antibacterial, antiparasitic, antifungal, antiviral and antitumor characteristics. Lactoferrin helps in bone growth, stimulates the recovery of immune system functions and protects the intestinal epithelium in the body. This multifunctional protein also helps to optimize the health and mental state of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Thus, the increasing adoption of lactoferrin in developing countries has dominated the growth and development of the market. The increasing incidence of bacterial infections is the major factor driving the growth and development of the market. Many human infections are caused by viruses or bacteria.
