Woman at GNC tried to tell me this. If true then maybe concentrate is a better choice throughout the day (ie. non-post workout)?

I dunno any exact numbers, but if it digests slower, it would be like 1% slower or something that small. So, if you're obsessive about that extra percent, feel free to spend more money for half the amount of whey =).

Actually, concentrate is cheaper...

And where does the 1% come from?

It's true that casein digests slower than whey correct?

Yes, concentrate is cheaper. I don't remember saying it was more expensive.

The 1% is some arbitrary number used to make a point.

Casein digests much slower than whey.

I think what she was trying to say was that isolates move through the body a lot quicker then concentrates.

until we have proof I think an isolate should be considered identical to a concentrate

up to this point it hasn't been studied

this is only an issue to bodybuilders so I don't think it will be studied any time soon

what we do know is that the faster protein hit's your blood the higher % of it is wasted, which is why atlarge makes such good products
