I know it is used as a drying agent in many products-- but is sodium caseinate harmful?

casein does not contain phosphorus. however, the process of refining and isolating it for, let's say, analytical chemistry purposes or even as a supplement product, introduces inorganic phosphate compounds into the mixture that is often inseparable from the final product mixture.

Casein is the principle protein of milk.

Casein is:" a white powder protein that occurs naturally in milk. It contains phosphorus and sulfur and is regarded as a "complete protein" because it contains all essential amino acids. Casein is precipitated when milk turns sour." Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th edition. ?? 2009, Elsevier.

Casein is also present in breastmilk.

Research suggests that casein and gluten act similarly - as they are the protein fractions of milk and wheat. They are not digested normally in most persons with autism but are incompletely broken down into absorbable molecules. Many people with autism show some improvement when these two dietary proteins are omitted

Sodium caseinate is: A tasteless, odorless, water-soluble, white powder; used in medicine, foods, emulsification, and stabilization; formed by dissolving casein in sodium hydroxide and then evaporating ( http://www.answers.com/topic/sodium-caseinate )

So harmful to some people. Probably good to stay away from as it is an additive.
