Consumers are waking up to the benefits that dietary protein can provide. From endurance athletes, and weekend warriors, to those in their advancing years, however, not all proteins are created equal. When it comes to the composition of amino acids in protein, some sources of protein over others are better at meeting human requirements.
Proteins are composed of building blocks called amino acids, which are then joined together by peptide bonds to create larger peptide units. There are 20 amino acids in the diet, 9 of which are essential, meaning they must be consumed in the diet as the human body cannot synthesize them itself. Protein quality is assessed based on the amino acid composition of a protein, its ability to satisfy protein requirements, and how well it is absorbed by the body.Read More

Milk Specialties Global is boosting the North American supply chain with Calcium Caseinate sourced and produced in the United States. The rBGH free skim milk is sourced from California dairy farms and transported to the Visalia, CA facility to produce Calcium Caseinate.
Calcium Caseinate is a highly functional ingredient with an excellent amino acid profile. It has excellent dispersibility, viscosity, and emulsification capabilities; making it a versatile ingredient of choice for ready to mix sports nutrition powders and other functional food applications.
The process of producing Calcium Caseinate involves gentle acidification and neutralization of the milk to help retain all superior nutritional qualities. Calcium Caseinate is an extremely nutritious and clean tasting ingredient that delivers a high level of protein with low levels of carbohydrates (sugar/lactose). It is also high in naturally occurring calcium phosphate which is the building block for strong teeth and bones, helping to maintain bone density and structural functions.
Milk Specialties Global’s Calcium Caseinate is available in instant and regular form, with non-GMO, Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher and Halal certifications. Instant Calcium Caseinate is recommended for use in all nutritional powder formulations to improve nutritional and sensory attributes as well as increase the product shelf-life.
