If Casein is in milk how come it's not mentioned in the ingredients list?

The ingredients in my milk are vitamin palmitate vitamin D and D3it doesn't say Casein.

  • I believe so. I think the best way to avoid it is to avoid dairy altogether.

  • Caesin is a type of protein. The label probably just reads "protein".

  • Yes...it's a binding agent added to milk. Many people are allergic to it and don't even realize it. They pass their health problems off as result of other things.

  • Because it is a protein-- a milk specific type of protein--- how much protein is or should be listed on the label

  • Also, don't be fooled by products that say "lactose-free". They may still have casein. Same with soy cheese.

    This is the same stuff used to glue furniture together and used in nail polish.
