Effect of Freezing Breast Milk

I was searching for baby food storages when I stumble upon this pdf document. This document is about a study of Effects Of Storage Process On The Bacterial Growth-Inhibiting Activity Of Expressed Human Breast Milk. Dra. JenniferLouL.Lorico and Dra. Ma.LucilaPerez of Ospital ng Makati stated the following conclusion.

Breast milk has bacterial inhibiting property against common neonatal pathogens. Bacteriostatic property of breast milk started to diminish after being frozen for 72 hours, but still exerted its inhibiting property.

I haven’t read the whole article (so many highfaluting jargons), but from what I understand the paper has the following points

  • breastmilk has the property to prevent growth of bacteria
  • breast milk’s bacterial inhibiting property started to diminish after being frozen for 72 hours (3days)
