So, what is acid casein?

Acid casein is a protein-rich powder derived from cow's milk. It is made by adding an acid, such as hydrochloric acid, to skim milk, causing the casein protein to separate from the liquid whey. The resulting curds are then washed and dried to produce the final product. Acid casein has a variety of uses in the food industry, including as a stabilizer, thickener, and emulsifier. It is commonly found in processed cheese, creamers, and yogurt. Acid casein is also used in the production of protein supplements for athletes and bodybuilders. Its high protein content makes it a popular ingredient in many health and wellness products.
