Sodium caseinate is a light yellow odorless powder, which is produced by neutralizing sodium carbonate or sodium hydroxide to make it solubilize in water. Sodium caseinate powder has long shelf life, high nutritional value, and essential amino acids. It has properties such as foam stability, high solubility, water binding capacity and emulsifying properties used in food and pharmaceutical industry. Sodium caseinate is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to be used as binder, emulsifier, and whipping agent in food products.
