Sodium caseinate

Sodium caseinate is the sodium salt of casein, the predominant protein found in cow’s milk and cheese. It can be used as a source of protein, as a thickening agent or to stabilize oil-in-water mixtures. Sodium caseinate is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in foods by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 1.
