- ... Natural stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen (12C, 13C, 14N, 15N) have abundances unique to each living creature. Therefore, measurement of the stable isotope ratio of carbon and nitrogen (δ13C=13C/12C, δ15N=15N/14N) in milk provides a reliable method to determine organic milk (OM) authenticity. In the present study, the mean δ13C value of OM was higher than that of conventional milk (CM), where ...
