pH-induced solubilization of minerals from casein micelles: influence of casein concentration and ionic strength

  • YVON LE GRAËT (a1) and FRÉDÉRIC GAUCHERON (a1)

Abstract

The concentrations of cations (calcium and magnesium) and anions (inorganic phosphate, citrate and chloride) have been determined during the acidification of casein micelle suspensions in the pH range 6·7–1·5. The effects of casein concentration (27, 55, 83 and 144 g/kg) and ionic strength (0, 10 and 20 g/kg NaCl added) were investigated. Acidification resulted in solubilization of calcium, magnesium, inorganic phosphate and citrate ions. However, the solubilization curves were different and depended on the casein concentration. Increasing ionic strength by adding NaCl had no effect on acid-induced mineral solubilization. These results were compared with those obtained during milk acidification and discussed in relation to the mineral solubilization that occurs during curd acidification in cheese manufacture.
