    ^

    Dairy products are very high in casein-protein percentage, milk is something like 80%.

    I always feel like the casein shake is enough, most of the time I still feel it in my stomach when I wake up. Ill usually do like a scoop and a half, 30g or so. Anyone ever mix whey with casein before bed?

    Casein, like whey, is a dairy protein. It is more prevalent in certain kinds of cheeses (e.g. ricotta), but it varies immensely. As already mentioned, the best source is going to be cottage cheese.

    Nah never have, I feel a nasty pump from just doing whey. Ill do whey and some dextrose when I wake up and then whey again a little bit after breakfast. I dont really understand how casein sits undigested for awhile, gotta look into it. How well does it combine with other foods?

    It doesn't sit undigested. Casein forms into a gel-like substance when put into an acidic environment such as the stomash.

    I gotta try that. Anything specifically?

    I made a smoothie with it the other day, it was pretty good.

    Then i had a second tub, i whipped it with peanut butter, splenda, and a touch of cinnamon, and made sort of like peanut butter frosting. Was bomb..lol
