Why do whey and casein work better together?

Milk is a mixture of two major proteins, whey and casein. Whey protein is frequently sold as a stand-alone supplement or used as the sole protein source in meal replacements. However,  research has shown that leaving casein and whey together (as found in our milk protein powders) may have multiple benefits for your body.

Whey is described as a fast-release protein, meaning it is quickly digested and absorbed. Casein is a slow-release by comparison. Thus, by supplementing your diet with a blend of casein and whey, you can receive the benefits of both proteins.

Idaho Milk Products produces 80 – 90 percent protein powders under the IdaPro and IdaPlus brand names. Both our Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) and Milk Protein Isolate (MPI) deliver casein and whey proteins in the same unaltered ratio as found in fresh milk.

IdaPro and IdaPlus MPC/MPI are used to add protein and nutritional and functional benefits to products such as yogurt, cheese, ice cream, ready-to-mix powders and ready-to-drink beverages for weight management, sports nutrition, and adult nutrition.
