    thanks Edge. i knew it was pretty high.

    i was just wondering what the differance would be by using cassein powder as opposed to just buying milk.

    Are we talking milk or milk isolate? Milk isolate is 80% casein and 20% whey. Milk is not a good source of protein, if you are looking just for protein.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure, because I haven't drank it in years. My point was that I have met a lot of people that think they are getting a lot of protein from milk. Also, they don't realize the fat and/or carbs included.

    Yes, you would still be getting the 8g of protein from a cup of milk. It's just that a cup of milk weighs X amount of grams and the 8g is only 3.6% of the total weighgt of a cup. Of that 8g of protein, I believe approximately 80% is casein and 20% whey.
