La primera considera que los macrodroplets son secretados envolviendo parte de la membrana plasmatica de la MEC, lo que pasa a conformar la MFGM, quedando finalmente constituido lo que se conoce como globulo graso de la leche (11) (Figura 2 #3).
Ademas de proteinas, tambien se ha encontrado que la MFGM esta compuesta por trigliceridos, colesterol, fosfogliceridos y esfingolipidos (Tabla 1) (incluyendo los dos ultimos aproximadamente un 31.1% de fosfatidiletalonamina, 27.7% de esfingolipidos, 26.4% de fosfatidilcolina, 5.5% de fosfatidilserina, y 5.2% de fosfatidil inositol, 3% de plasmalogenos y 1.1% de gangliosidos) (6).
A breakthrough in food science, however, concluded that Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM), a tri-layer complex component rich in proteins, may just shrink the gap between breast milk and formula milk.
