The digestion and absorption rates of amino acids are crucial factors for determining the quality of protein foods. Milk contains both proteins of Whey and casein micellar that are easy and delayed digested, respectively. However, casein micellar can transfer into caseins which are easier to be solved and then digested and absorbed faster. Also, caseins density can be altered by cross-linking enzymes. These three types of caseins have never been compared. In this study, we analyzed the reaction of plasma amino acids to the consumption of these three kinds of protein. Each subject was given 40 grams of different kinds of caseins on different days, and then after 6 hours, a blood sample was taken from them. Surprisingly, casein micellar was relatively digested and absorbed faster compared to caseins. But cross-linked sodium caseinates had the fastest digestion. Although there is no reasonable explanation for this, probably the way of producing and storing protein affects the rate of its digestion and absorption. Therefore, two different brands of protein can have different digestion and absorption rates, and this reveals the fact that the preparing method of the protein determines its digestion and absorption.
