Slow releasing protein

I would like to get some slow releasing protein before bed for and was debating between calcium caseinate and milk protein concentrate. Does anyone know if one is beneficial over the other?

Also, could I not just simply drink milk instead of using a supplement?

    Depends on your goals in one sense - there isn't going to be a huge difference between the two IMO - the milk protein concentrate might be slightly lower release, however bear in mind that the milk concentrate will be higher in lactose.

    Personally, I don't invest in either of these, as I just have whey in milk prior to bed for slow releasing. There are disadvantages of drinking the milk, such as lactose etc, but I am fine with this and it fits into my diet fine. No supplements are 'necessary' IMO - have some cottage cheese if you want a slow releasing supp - protein supps are not necessary rather a matter of convenience.

    I am currently trying to bulk and therefore want to get more protein in my diet (quite slim, weighing only 65kg). I’ve heard lots of people mention using whey in milk but was unsure exactly how much it slowed down absorption using milk instead of water. From different posts I’ve read it seems that caseinate/milk protein would be a slower absorbing protein source than whey in water.

    Had a go at the cottage cheese thing and we didn’t get on unfortunately.

    I'm pretty sure milk protein concentrate will be absorbed slower than whey in milk-the difference would only be an hour or so, which, in my opinion is not worth the extra cost

    its off the shelves at my local tesco but they used to do a low fat edam cheese

    33% protein and 10% fat.

    that was cheaper and tastier than any shake

    anyhow id opt for pro-peptide if i were you. whey mixed with milk to my knowledge would only digest as fast as the casein from the milk. which would sort of drip feed your muscles throughout the night.

    im not a big milk fan myself though

    if you're going through hell. keep going.
