Can I expect the same metabolic benefits of Micellar Casein from consumption of casein or caseinates?

No. The metabolic benefits attributed to micellar casein consumption will not automatically transfer over to casein/caseinate consumption. As stated in the response above, many of the digestive enzymes are site specific and require a certain structure to perform. Acid casein and/or rennet casein have already been precipitated as a curd from milk as part of their manufacture. The casein micelle structure has already been destroyed in acid casein, rennet casein, and caseinates before you consume them. Therefore, when casein or caseinates hit the gastric juices in the stomach, they may or may not form a “bolus” structure that is compatible with the site specific enzymes. There is no guarantee that the array of bioactive peptides and anticatabolic activity of micellar casein will be exhibited after consumption of casein and/or caseinates.
