Casein pronounced "kay-seen" in British English, is a family of related phosphoproteins (αS1, αS2, β, κ). These proteins are commonly found in mammalian milk, comprising c. 80% of the proteins in cow's milk and between 20% and 45% of the proteins in human milk. The Casein has a wide variety of uses, from being a major component of cheese, to use as a food additive. The most common form of casein is sodium caseinate.
Casein is one of the two types of proteins in milk. It carries the same amino acid profile as whey but is absorbed differently. This means it offers a full array of amino acids to help your muscles achieve protein synthesis rather than protein breakdown.
Maximuscle Micellar Casein, for example, is created from fresh skimmed milk to reduce lactose and fat but offer a full profile of slow release proteins. Casein is the protein found in all mammals’ milk. Mammals include cow, goat, sheep, yak, buffalo, camel and humans. This includes human breast milk even if the mother is on a GFCFSF diet.
The global casein and caseinate market is anticipated to expand at a steady pace in the upcoming years. Casein is a type of protein which akin to other proteins helps build and repair tissues. Commonly found in mammalian milk, casein is often marketed as an alternative to another common dairy-based protein- whey protein. Casein obtained either from food or from a supplement could be a useful addition to the diet with several potential benefits.
The global casein and caseinates market is projected to grow at the rate of 3.5% during the forecast period 2018 to 2023. Casein and caseinates are witnessing huge demand from food & beverages and various industrial applications including the plastic and fiber, paint, paper, glues, and textiles industries.
The Global Casein & caseinate market is awaited to spread at a substantial pace in the coming years. Higher consumer demand for rich protein and momentous benefits of casein over other proteins in food and beverages industry is fueling the growth of this market.
