I have recently learned that I have high levels of lipase in my BM, and as a result, my BM tastes soapy and metallicy within one day of storage. My daughter refuses this BM in a bottle, but will accept freshly expressed milk (I was testing to see if she was rejecting the bottle itself or the milk - turns out it was the yucky tasting 1-day old milk). freezing immediately doesn't help either.
I have learned that scalding the milk immediately after expression is the only way to inactivate the enzyme. does this destroy too many other properties? should I just supplement with formula?
I am a working mom, so I have to do something...I am wondering if there is any way to alter my diet to reduce this enzyme? I generally eat a healthy balanced diet and exercise in moderation.
any suggestions or advice would be helpful!
