Data collected from polyacrylamide electrophoresis indicated that inulin and milk proteins are involved in interactions with each other. The milk protein that did not interact with inulin was α-lactalbumin. The findings of this study touched the surface concerning the understanding of the type of interactions that may be involved to form the protein-inulin complex. Further research would help to obtain a better understanding of not only the type or types of interactions occurring among milk proteins and inulin, but increase the understanding of the interaction between proteins and carbohydrates in general.
