Sodium Caseinate



Categories: ,


What is sodium caseinate? Sodium caseinate is a compound obtained from casein, a protein found in the milk of mammals. Casein is the most prevalent protein in cow’s milk and what causes its cloudy, white appearance. It’s an important part of many milk-based products like ice cream and cheese. Casein proteins can be separated from milk and used on their own as a supplement or additive to thicken, texturize, and stabilize various foods and food products.

The terms casein and sodium caseinate are often used synonymously, but they vary slightly on a chemical level. Sodium caseinate is a compound that is formed when casein proteins are chemically removed from skim milk. To start, the solid casein-containing curds are extracted from the whey – the liquid part of milk. This can be accomplished by adding specialized enzymes or an acidic substance  such as lemon juice or vinegar to the milk. Once the curds and whey have been separated, they are then treated with a basic pH substance called sodium hydroxide. After this, they are dried into a powder.

Sodium caseinate powder can be used in many foods, including: breads, cheeses, ice creams, chocolates, processed meat, cereal and granola bars, coffee creamers, protein powders, and more. There are a few different types of caseinates, but sodium caseinate is generally the preferred form because it is the most water-soluble.
