"Casein (Caseinate): One of the two types of protein found in milk. Casein separates from milk when milk is curdled; a process commonly carried out in the manufacturing of cheese. Casein tends to form a �gel� in the stomach, which slows the digestion. This makes casein an ideal protein source to use right before bed, as it may release protein into the bloodstream over a period of time during sleep. Casein is also very high in the amino acid glutamine, a �conditionally essential� amino acid necessary for repair of muscle tissue after strenuous exercise. Calcium Caseinate vs. Sodium Caseinate: Like many other nutritional compounds, casein is typically bound to a metal since the molecule is more stable this way. Specifically, casein is most commonly bound to calcium (Ca2+) or sodium (Na+) since both of these metals are found naturally in milk, and tend to �stick� to the casein during the extraction process. Nutritionally, these compounds are basically interchangeable, as both forms of caseinate are effective protein sources."
