Milk Protein

Milk protein is a blend of Casein Protein protein and Whey Protein protein, usually in an 80/20 blend. There really is nothing super special about it, but it can be a cheaper way of ingesting Whey Protein and Casein Protein protein when the difference is irrelevant for your goals since processing costs are less.

Milk protein is a relatively unprocessed form of dairy protein, consisting of both Whey Protein protein and Casein Protein protein in approximately a 20/80 ratio (slight differences may occur between species and processing).

It is also the type of protein found naturally in milk products. Cheese products are highly similar but may have varying amounts of Casein Protein or Whey Protein due to processing techniques (they tend to have more caseins in proportion to how solid their state is).

It can be bought in supplemental (powdered) form, but is most researched in its food bound form.

Benefits seen on the Whey Protein and Casein Protein pages can be applied to this page if a grain of salt is taken, as doses change. A glass of milk tends to have 7-9g protein whereas a scoop of supplemental protein tends to have 20-24g protein.

Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what effects milk protein has on your body, and how strong these effects are.

Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The more evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Food Intake Minor Very High See study
Appears to reduce food intake, a phenomena common to all protein sources
Appetite - Very High See study
Despite the reduction in food intake, no significant influence on perceived appetite
