- This research was carried out to evaluate and camper the physiochemical and characteristics of buffalo casein with bovine casein. The casein powder was characterized in terms of particle size distribution, zeta-potential, solubility, and Scanning electron microscopy. The bovine casein contained highest protein content (93.96%). Buffalo casein had the largest particle size and more white color than bovine casein (173.7 and 94.7 nm) respectively. Zeta-potential for buffalo and bovine casein showed negative charge and mobility suitable to solubility index (99 and 95) in aqueous. Scanning electron microscopy images of buffalo casein was showed large size, as well as surface of smooth of these structural characteristics which was similar bovine casein. Hence, buffalo casein could be considered as a natural source for coffee whiteners and ingredient food in supplement food products to use in functional foods and pharmaceutical applications.
