A few months ago I read an article titled "Effect of a hypocaloric diet, increased protein intake and resistance training on lean mass gains and fat mass loss in overweight police officers."
What was amazing about the article was the fact that lean mass and strength increases as well as fat loss was significantly greater on the test subjects that supplimented their protein intake with casein protein vesus the group that supplimented with whey. The conclusion was the casein provided better nitrogen retention and overal anticatabolic effects.
If you would like to read this article there is a copy posted in BB.coms protein article. The one I read first came from another site I cannot remember which. The study was done in 2000 by Demling and DeSanty
The protein was called casein hydrolysate and whey hydrolysate.
Now I understand why whey would work as a better post work-out supp due to faster Bio availability. Other than that, why would you not use casein? How would animal proteins behave in the same experiment compared to casein?
Does anyone know of a good source of casein hydrolysate besides protein bars and I am guessing cottage cheese. Can you buy casein hydrolysate?
Thanks for your help, LOCO
