Just throwing this out there to get opinions on it, but what is the general consensus on making protein shakes with milk versus water?
this is the answer I got from Cam...what are the benefits of taking it with water vs. milk? what good does slowing the absorption rate do? i always take it with milk. i think it tastes 10times better.
Anyways, after the gym you want to protein to be absorbed as fast as possible. Therefor mixing it in water helps to get it to your muscle more rapidly. Mixing it in milk drastically increases the absorbtion time. Thus taking it in milk before bed lets your muscles feed off of it more slowly over time.
Milk proteins (casein) are slow-absorbing. Whey proteins are fast-absorbing. Adding milk to whey protein slows the overall rate of absorption and promotes a longer, sustained release.so, it's ok if your working out late and mix with milk at night?
