Select Protein is a premium blend of whey and casein protein, perfectly flavoured to taste true to each flavour's name, leaving you craving more every day. Select is third-party tested for quality and purity. This low-carb, gluten-free formula uses milk protein isolate as its #1 ingredient, rarely used in protein powders due to its high cost. Milk protein isolate is very low in lactose giving Select Protein great digestion. Read below to learn something new about protein powders and how Select Protein stands apart.

  • Masters of Flavour

    Every flavour of Select tastes just like its name. Cake Pop? Not a basic vanilla protein you dread. It's a perfect blend of yellow cake and vanilla icing flavouring that you'll crave. Whether you use Select as a protein shake or for baking, our flavours are unmatched.

  • Digestion Friendly

    Unlike most whey proteins you may have tried, our #1 ingredient is milk protein isolate, a very digestion friendly source. In 1 serving of Select there is only ~0.5g of lactose. For reference, a cup of milk contains 13g.

  • Whey + Casein

    Research continues to show that a whey + casein blend is superior to 100% whey for stimulating muscle protein synthesis. We provide both whey and casein, from milk protein isolate and whey protein concentrate, so you get the most out of every shake you drink.

  • Third-Party Tested

    All of our finished products and ingredients are third-party tested for purity and potency. This practice has been implemented at our company since its foundation in 2010, and is just one of many quality control measures we take every day.

Technical Product Writeup

Better together: Whey + Casein. 

Of the various types of protein, whey and casein are the most common — and popular. 

While they both come from milk, they differ in many ways.

This article explores the differences between whey and casein protein, and the benefits of consuming them together for muscle growth and recovery.

The primary milk proteins

Casein and whey are the major proteins of cow’s milk, making up 80% and 20% of milk protein, respectively (1).

Both provide all nine of the essential amino acids, which your body can easily digest, absorb, and use to make other proteins.

They also have higher levels of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) — isoleucine, leucine, and valine — than most other food sources (1).

Diets rich in BCAAs positively affect metabolic health, especially blood sugar and blood pressure, body weight, and muscle protein synthesis — the process of producing new muscle protein (1).

Whey is produced during the cheesemaking process in which enzymes or heat are used to separate it from the curdled milk or casein.

The whey can then be concentrated, purified, and spray-dried into a powder.

The separated curdled milk is usually made into cheese but can also be turned into a casein powder.

Whey and casein forms

Whey undergoes special processing that concentrates or isolates the protein.

Whey protein concentrate provides at least 25% protein, but most protein products provide 80%. 

An isolate undergoes even more processing to provide at least 90% protein.

Because whey isolate provides a higher percentage of protein than concentrate, it contains significantly less lactose.

Thus, if you are intolerant or sensitive to lactose, opting for an isolate is a safe bet for preventing any associated digestive symptoms.

However, some people with lactose intolerance or sensitivity can still tolerate whey protein concentrate that is 80% protein.

Casein has a unique structure in that it forms small, spherical structures called micelles, and why you usually see casein labeled as micellar casein on protein products.

Casein provides about 85% of protein by weight, and, like whey isolate, is very low in lactose, providing about 1% by weight. 

Some protein products like PEScience’s Select Protein provide both whey and casein protein.

These proteins aren’t produced like whey and casein individually, instead, they are produced by concentrating cow’s milk through filtration processes.

These filtration methods capture most of the casein and whey proteins contained in the cow’s milk, resulting in a casein-to-whey ratio of 80:20. 

These blends may be a concentrate or isolate.

Milk protein isolates — the blend used in Select Protein — provides at least 90% protein by weight and less than 0.5 grams of lactose per serving, making it appropriate for lactose intolerant or sensitive individuals (2). 

Benefits of whey and casein

Whey and casein each have unique benefits.

Whey protein provides various active proteins called immunoglobulins — antibodies essential in protecting the body against bacteria and other unwanted organisms.

The protein also provides other bioactive nutrients that possess strong anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and immunological properties.

Cell studies also suggest that one of these nutrients — lactoferrin — improves gut health, blood sugar, and inflammatory markers.

Casein possesses various bioactive peptides — short strings of amino acids — that can benefit immune and metabolic health.

These peptides have been shown to enhance calcium absorption and lower cholesterol and blood pressure (4, 5).

While both proteins can enhance satiety or feelings of fullness — helping to decrease calorie intake and promote weight loss — whey m
