Aim

To determine the amount of casein present in different samples of milk.

Page 6: Chemistry Investigatory Project Thamshak

Description

Casein is the main protein constituent of milk. It constitutes about 80% of the total protein in cow’s milk and about 3% of its weight. It group of protein precipitated when the milk is slightly acidified. It dissolves slightly in water, extensively in alkalis’ or strong acids. Casein is a complete protein meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids, which the body can not manufacture on its own. When dried, it is a white, amorphous powder without taste and odour. It is a mixed phosphoprotein and occurs in milk as calcium salt (calcium caseinate) in the form of micelle. The micelle has a negative charge. When an acid is added to the milk, the negative charges are neutralized.

Calcium caseinate + acetic acid → casein (s) + calcium acetate (aq)

Requirements

Apparatus and Chemicals 250 ml beakers Funnel Glass rod Chemical balances Test tubes Filtration flask Bunsen burner Different samples of milk 1% acetic acid solution Saturated ammonium sulphate solution

Page 8: Chemistry Investigatory Project Thamshak

Procedure

Take a clean dry beaker, put into it 20cc of cow’s milk and add 20 ml of saturated ammonium sulphate solution slowly and with stirring. Fat along with casein will precipitate out.

Filter the solution and transfer the precipitates in another beaker.

Add about 30 ml of water to the precipitate.

Only casein dissolves in water forming milky solution leaving fat undissolved.

Heat the milky solution to about 40˚ C and add 1% acetic acid solution drop wise, when casein gets precipitated.

Filter the precipitate, wash with water and let the precipitate dry.

Weigh the dry solid mass in a previously weighed watch glass.

Repeat the experiment with other samples of milk.
