Generally, cow milks are the most popular amongst all the dairy products as it is affordable and easy to find. However, dairy products that are originated from cow contains protein that can induce allergen reactions to some people. Thus, there is milk produced from the plant-based which is soybean that can be used to replace cow milk as it is believed to have similar nutritional value to cow milk. Therefore, to prove its similarity, an identification of antioxidant compounds was performed on soybean milk and cow milk extract using Attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy. The extraction was done by using liquid-liquid extraction method and the excess solvent was removed by using rotary evaporator machine. As a result, soybean milk has been identified to have the similar antioxidant compounds to cow milk. It can be proven with the presence of functional group that are similar to tryptophan and tyrosine which are both existed in cow milk. Hence, this research is essential for community as it contribute maximum benefit for better healthcare.
