Bovine beta casein enteropathy is characterized by raised serum IgA antibodies to bovine beta casein found by blood testing and damage to mucosa of the jejunum found by biopsy.
The jejunum is the second section of the small intestine, between the duodenum and the ileum.
Mucosa damage is similar to damage caused by gluten.
Q: What is bovine beta casein?
A: Bovine beta casein is a protein found in cow’s milk.
An immune reaction to protein in milk is totally different from lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance develops from deficiency of an intestinal enzyme called lactase which is required to digest lactose, the sugar in milk.
