cadmium transfer from whole milk to milk products was studied before and following a repeated oral cadmium administration to 3 goats. Prior to cadmium administration, milk cadmium levels ranged from less than 0.2 to 0.2μg / L, during cadmium administration, cadmium levels ranged from 1.2 to 4.6 ±μg / L in the milk used for cheese making. The factor of concentration of cadmium from whole milk to cream was 3. 1 ± 0.7, to lactic curds was 3.3 ± 0.3 and to rennet curds was 5.7 ± 0.7. A quarter of the cadmium contained in the original milk was found in the cream (23.9±5.4%), about 60% in curd(61.6±5.4% in rennet curds and 56.8±4.8% in lactic curds), 12.9 ± 2.8% in rennet curd whey and 16. 3 ± 5.3% in lactic curd whey. The fraction of to- tal cadmium transferred from milk to its milk products ranged from 99.2% to 100.4%.
