Milk contains two types of proteins -- casein and whey. Casein is 80% of the milk protein, while whey is 20%. Casein is an amorphous white solid, tasteless and odourless chief protein found in milk. However, commercial casein is slightly yellow, with a pleasant odour. It is a slow-digesting protein that contains all the essential amino acids your body needs. It may also contain various micronutrients (such as calcium), but the exact composition will vary depending on the brand. This protein is anti-catabolic. It reduces protein breakdown within the body due to its slow digestion rate and sustained supply of amino acids to muscle cells.
Make sure to check the label carefully and read the list of ingredients before buying a casein enriched food product.
