Natural protein source, typically isolated from bovine milk.Casein is widely used as a food additive. It is useful in tooth remineralization products to stabilize amorphous calcium phosphate. It is also used as a type of organic adhesive and a binder for safety matches. It supplies amino acids and carbohydrates and two inorganic elements such as calcium and phosphorus. Further, it is also used in the production of transformer board due to its oil permeability.
