The genetic polymorphism of milk proteins affects milk composition and its suitability for cheesemaking. This study aimed to examine the effects of the A and B genetic variants of beta -lactoglobulin and kappa -casein on these 2 properties. Samples of raw milk from 230 Friesian cows were made into 83 samples of Camembert-type cheese. Eight genetic combinations were studied; genetic identification was carried out using electrophoresis.
