Casein is the main protein found in milk and constitutes three different polypeptide chains held together by noncovalent interactions. It is tasteless, odorless and amorphous white solid in its pure form, while its commercial type is yellowish with a pleasing odor. Casein is synthesized in the mammary gland and is precipitated from skim milk by acidifying it to produce acid casein. It is a rich source of essential amino acids, containing four peptide bonds, namely, αS1, αS2, K and β acids, phosphorus, and carbohydrate contents. Casein is digested more slowly than most other animal proteins, resulting in a prolonged release of amino acids into the bloodstream. Moreover, the demand for casein has increased in recent years due to the growing industrial applications, including the seasoning and dressing of leather, cleaners and polishes for shoes, textile printing and sizing, insecticide sprays, and soapmaking.
The consumption of casein offers several advantages to the human body, such as repairing muscles, boosting energy and losing weight. This represents the primary factor bolstering the market growth. In addition, casein emulsifies fat as an adhesive and colorant, which has escalated its demand in various industries, including food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Besides this, casein is recommended as a digestive aid and a premium protein and food supplement for bodybuilders due to its slow absorption rate. Furthermore, with the growing health consciousness among consumers, they have started incorporating protein-based health supplements, such as casein, into their diets. Moreover, the changing dietary habits of consumers, extensive research and development (R&D) activities undertaken to develop innovative products, and longer shelf-life of protein-enriched food products are some of the other factors contributing to the industry growth.
