So, what is caseinate?

Caseinate is a protein derived from milk that is commonly used as an ingredient in many processed foods. It has excellent solubility and emulsifying properties, making it a popular choice for creating smooth and creamy textures in products like cheese, yogurt, and ice cream. Caseinate is also added to many sports supplements due to its high protein content and slow digestibility, which can aid in muscle recovery and growth. Despite being derived from milk, caseinate is generally lactose-free and safe for those with lactose intolerance. However, it may not be suitable for those with dairy allergies.
