Dairy proteins are made up of two proteins: Whey and Casein. Most users of protein powder are familiar with Whey Protein as they’re commonly used in Whey Protein Blends and Whey Protein Isolate protein powder shakes. Casein Protein is less commonly used but is a slow digesting protein that can play a vital role in preventing muscle breakdown.
Casein makes up 80% of milk protein and also gives milk its white colour. Casein is also found in yoghurt, cheese, and baby formulas. While Whey is quickly broken down in the body, Casein is digested slowly and often taken before bed to aid muscle recovery while you sleep.
Casein is considered a complete protein because it contains all the Essential Amino Acids and because of its slow release into your gut, Casein releases amino acids into your system over a long period of time making it the ideal protein powder shake to have before periods of fasting such as sleep. Studies have shown that amino acids linger in the system for only 90 minutes after consuming a Whey Protein but will last 4-5 hours after ingesting Casein Protein. As a result, Casein provides a greater feeling of fullness and can help reduce appetite.
Like Whey Protein, Casein Protein has unique proteins and bioactive compounds which provide the body with a range of benefits. The most commonly used forms of Casein are:
Micellar Casein – slow release, anti-catabolic properties, ideal night protein
Casein Hydrolysate – pre-digested, faster absorption, low fat & carbs
These proteins are of significant importance to the body in the uptake of nutrients and vitamins and facilitate a slow release of amino acids into the bloodstream.
The question lies in how to maximise your efforts and how you could be using these supplements to improve your daily, physical exertion and the results.

Q: Should I take Casein AND Whey Protein?
This will ultimately depend on your body and fitness goals. General advice is that Casein and Whey Protein work well in a stack because they’re taken at different times. Whey Protein is great before and after your workout due to its quick release while Casein is ideal as a night-time protein that you can have before bed to aid muscle recovery and prevent muscle breakdown.
Q: How much Casein should I take per day?
Always follow the instructions on your protein tub but generally 1-2 scoops of Casein protein per day is enough.
Q: Are there any side effects when taking Casein?
Unless you have a dairy intolerance or Casein intolerance, Casein protein is generally considered safe but it’s always best to check with your health care provider if you have any concerns about starting a new supplement.
