The adsorption of caseins from sodium caseinate (SC) and whey proteins from whey protein isolate (WPI) on to particles of hydroxyapatite (HA) was studied. Confocal microscopy and zeta-potential measurements showed that both caseins and whey proteins bound to HA, resulting in an increase in the absolute value of the zeta-potential of the particles.

Insoluble calcium phosphate particles, such as hydroxyapatite (HA), are often used in calcium-fortified milks as they are considered to be chemically unreactive. However, this study showed that there was an interaction between the casein micelles in milk and HA particles. The caseins in milk were shown to bind to the HA particles, with the relative(More)
