In the same amount of cow's milk - five sheep and goat - four mare - six monkey - ten grams. Colostrum contains lactose two times less than in mature milk.

Lactase first detected already in the tenth week of fetal development, from the seventeenth week of its maximum activity in the jejunum, the twenty-fourth week of lactase activity is the same in both the distal and proximal parts of the intestine. However, the level of activity is low and progressively increases the time of delivery, while maintaining maximum activity of ten - twelve months. With the transition to the adult type of food lactase activity begins to decline. In two years lactase activity in the two times lower than that of a newborn. The second period of sharp decline in activity between the ages of five - seven years.
