Casein Production Cost Analysis 2021
Casein belongs to a family of phosphoproteins. These proteins are widely found in mammalian milk, consisting of about 80% of the proteins in cow's milk and between 20% to 45% of the proteins in human milk. Sheep's and buffalo's milk hold a higher casein content than any other type of milk, including even human milk, which has low casein content. From being a core component of cheese to being uses as a food additive, casein has a wide variety of uses. The most comprehensive form of casein is known as sodium caseinate. Being a food source, casein supplies amino acids, carbohydrates, and two of the essential elements, calcium, and phosphorus.
Casein has no disulfide bridges. As a result, it comes with a relatively little tertiary structure. It is relatively hydrophobic, making it poorly miscible in water. It is often found in milk as a suspension of particles, called casein micelles, that show only fixed resemblance with surfactant-type micelles in a sense that the hydrophilic parts reside at the surface as they are spherical. Although, in sharp contrast to surfactant micelles, the interior of a casein micelle is often found to be highly hydrated. The caseins in the micelles are boned together by calcium ions and hydrophobic interactions.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Casein production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
