    Milk Powder vs. Whey Protein Powder

    What is the difference? Whey comes from milk.. they are both high in protein..
    No Milk, no.
    Milk is for babies. When you grow up, you have to drink beer.

    The main differences are:-
    1) Milk protein is 80% casein & 20% whey.
    2) Milk contains lactose, a disaccharide of galactose & glucose.

    The main similarities are:-
    1) If it's skimmed milk powder, there won't be any significant fat in it.

    If you decide to use skimmed milk powder, choose a freeze-dried one as spray-dried milk powder may contain some oxidised cholesterol.

    So milk would be good pre workout, because of the casein? Doesn't whey also contain lactose?

    I guess so, though the whey content can produce an insulin spike which may not be desirable pre-workout.

    What does it say on the label on your tub of whey?

    unless it is only whey isolate, your whey will have lactose.

    Cheers! I had to do a brain-dump in a hurry as I was having memory problems. I'm on the mend now.

    I've just looked at my tub of all-in1 whey. The carb content is less than 10% of the protein content. Ditto for the fat content. Milk powder has more lactose than protein and a variable fat content depending on whether it's semi or skimmed.
