Does milk block whey from being digested?

I usually have my shakes with water, however sometimes use milk. A friend said that mixing whey with milk prevents/blocks it from being digested, therefore always use water.
 
Thoughts?

    No. Whey comes from milk and what food blocks another anyway?

    I think I'm right in saying that the casein in milk slows down the digestion of whey, so it makes a pretty good night time shake.

    I would use whey in water first thing in the morning however.

    Never listen to what that friend has to say

    I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

    I think that this may have been suggested because of the Lactose and Fat content of milk.
    Whey protein has been filtered and processed to remove these and other factors.
     
    Where Lactose and fat will not "Block" the body absorbing the protein it will have effects on its speed and calorific content.
     
    If you are looking to digest your protein fast.. First thing in the morning or PWO then use water.
    If you are cutting away unnecessary calories from your diet then again use water.
     
    I personally, always use water and if I require a slow digesting protein (No Casein to hand) then I would add a table spoon of good fats to my shake – Much better choice than milk IMO.

    Indeed..

    But, if it was all about taste - I would be in Burger King all day every day.

    no it wont stop it being digested, it may well slow down the release of the protein but wont prevent your body from using it.

    It also depends on what protein powder you use - regarding taste...

    Boditronics Express Whey, for example, tastes infintely better with water rather than milk.  In fact, I can't stand Express Whey with milk...

    I can't understand the logic taking protein powder with milk either!
    Protein does indeed come from milk.  So if milk is refined through several processes to separate the whey inside it, why add milk to it?
    If you ran out of milk and HAD to have a shake, would you therefore add powdered milk to your water and then add that to your Protein powder?

    I certainly wouldn't...

    LOL True. But the same can be said of many foods etc we eat and drink.

    I was once told that the salts that are found naturally in milk can affect whey when mixed. How or why, I can't recall, whether this effects the digestion maybe not. 

    Pointless answer from me, just musing I guess!
