casein protein

would it be worth the while if i got myself some casein protein as well as whey. that i would take before bed as it's slow digesting protein? or would it be a waste of money

    I like having some protein before bed, but I am not sure if casein is better than soy protein or other.
    whey protein makes me sleep less well.
     
    depend on the price i guess. If you can get cheap whole milk protein, just use that, 80% casein in it.

    It's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. I'm no fan of cottage cheese so I like a shake before bed. A casein shake is slow-release (moreso when mixed with milk) so keeps the protein coming through the night.
     
    The cost is the same whether I use my regular whey powder or a pre-bed-specific casein powder. The only difference is I have two tubs to store.

    I couldn't say, having never tried it, but I'm sure if it was awful you could dress it up in any number of ways.

    Casein protein is the slower of the two proteins with regards to digestion, but whey protein actually increases protein synthesis to a greater degree in the rested state better than casein (Raffaella et al. 2008). So I'd use whey before bed and a blend/casein throughout the day to help with hunger/boosting protein at mealtimes.

    I bought a 2.5kg tub of unflavoured mpc. I've had two servings and I can't stomach it...The texture is awful, even when mixed in a blender :(

    I've used casein, and although much thicker than whey, i feel more inclined to use it in the morning when i know i wont be able to eat a loooong time, because it takes ~double that time to fully digest compared with whey.

    I use casein pre-bed as opposed to quark or cottage cheese.

    Where can I read about increased protein synthesis with whey when compared to other proteins? I thought whey was pretty much a poor choice of protein except for the post workout period due to it only giving you aminos for 2 hours tops as opposed to casein which hits the bloodstream at the same time but gives aminos for 6-8 hours. Taking whey before bed is a new one to me, but don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just interested to read more about this.

    You need to add copious amounts of choc protein powder and some peanut butter in there...change your mind you will!

    I love it in a baked potato smothered in beans, but won't be eating that pre-bed :)

    Cottage cheese on its own isn't the nicest, but adding things to it makes it nice.Adding honey and muesli is a favourite of mine.
