Acidicase Peptone is a hydrochloric acid hydrolysate of casein. The manufacturing process produces a casein hydrolysate, which has a high salt content of approximately 37% and nitrogen content of approximately 8%. The hydrolysis of the casein, a milk protein rich in amino acid nitrogen, is carried out until all the nitrogen is converted to amino acids or other compounds of relative simplicity. Casein contains little cystine and is deficient in tryptophan, which is destroyed by the acid treatment.
• Hydrochloric acid hydrolysate of casein
• Animal origin (AO) nutritional supplement
• Milk protein rich in amino acid nitrogen
Applications of Acidicase Peptone include:
• Intended for use as a nutritional supplement in vitamin assays, susceptibility testing, and other laboratory media and microbial fermentation in which the high salt content will not interfere
