    Quiz of the week


    Answer: Casein

    Casein is the most abundant protein found in cow’s milk. Once ingested, casein coagulates (curdles) in the acidic environment of the stomach, which is why it is digested slowly. It then moves into the intestine and is broken down into amino acids that can be used to initiate and maintain the process of muscle protein synthesis. This process takes several hours, with plasma amino acid concentrations reaching their peak around 7 hours after ingestion. Read more about casein.
