Lactoferrin less the iron molecule. Like lactoferrin, Apolactoferrin is an iron-binding protein found in human milk. Lactoferrin along with Secretory IgA can have a bacteriostatic effect in the intestinal tract of a breast fed newborn. Lactoferrin may also function as a promoter of iron absorption due to the high bioavailability of iron from digested Lactoferrin.
