What Is Casein?

Casein is a milk protein, found in dairy products. Even products which have no lactose (milk sugar) frequently contain casein.

That's right, anything with dairy contains casein, and many "non-dairy" products also contain casein. You have to read the labels. Sodium caseinate (or any caseinate) is a derivative of casein. Whey is another milk protein, but it contains casein in it as well. So if you need to avoid casein, then you basically have to avoid all dairy products and any other food that contains any form of dairy.

God bless,
