Casein is a protein found in milk and dairy product.

Why remove gluten and casein proteins?
Many parents report removing these proteins from the diet of their autistic child helps reduce autistic behaviors. As, a parent I strongly agree with these findings. Our son experienced amazing results on the gluten-free and casein-free diets.
However, every person on the Autism Spectrum is different. Individual results may vary.
Making the change to Gluten Free and Casein Free Diet is more than just a dietary change. It is a lifestyle change.
Caution: Consult your medical team before making changes to anyone's diet.
