ResumenThis chapter deals with the most important proteins that are naturally glycosylated in milk, including i) κ-casein and caseinmacropeptide, ii) glycosylated whey proteins and iii) glycoproteins associated with the milk-fat globule membrane. Data based on structure-function and biological role of these glycoproteins are discussed in detail, with special attention to the health promoting activities that may be mediated by the carbohydrate portion. For instance, glycans from milk proteins may serve as recognition sites interacting with viruses, microorganisms and cell membrane lectins. In this sense, this chapter underlines the importance of carrying out further research on milk biologically active glycoproteins, as it could allow expanding their potential commercial applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
