Kappa·Casein (KCN) - $40.00/sample

Kappa·Casein is one of four non-whey proteins and has been associated with increased protein yield and percentage. Genetic Visions testes for two forms of the kappa·casein gene, A or B. The B gene has been associated with an increase in milk, protein and cheese yield.

Animals carry one of three gene combinations from each parent. Studies from around the world have shown that the BB genotype is the most favorable in terms of protein and cheese yield. AB is somewhate intermediate and AA is the least favorable.
