If you are an avid reader of fitness articles you already know the significance of protein supplements. However, nowadays there are several forms of protein supplements available in the market; for instance: pea protein, hemp protein, oats protein, whey protein, casein protein, and so on. Though every form has its own importance, in this piece we shall be shedding light on the casein protein supplement.

What Is Casein Protein?

Similar to whey protein, casein protein is also derived from milk. In fact the composition of milk is 80% casein and 20% whey. But there is a vast difference between the absorption rates of whey protein and casein protein. Casein protein is a slow digesting protein that stays in the bloodstream for quite a few hours and provides a constant supply of essential amino acids. Formulated in the lab by dehydrating parts of milk, casein has cemented its importance in the supplement industry for some very legitimate reasons.

Broadly there are 2 forms of casein proteins:

  • Micellar Casein: This is the most popular form and is digested at a slower pace.
  • Casein Hydrolysate: This form is predigested and has a comparatively faster absorption rate.
