    hi,

    i always presumed that calcium caseinate would have quite alot of lactose in it, on closer inspection it only has 0.1g, when the whey isolate ive been using has 0.2g of carbs (which i understand is largely lactose?). i do have a lactose intolerance which i believe was much stronger when i was younger, but im fine with whey isolate and other, more processed dairy products (cheese, chocolate etc.) but not with over-priced whey that you find in the shops.

    just wondering what the general consensus would be on someone like myself using calcium caseinate, bearing in mind my lactose intolerance.

    stu.

    Given those figures it sounds like it'd be fine to me. The best thing you can do is try it. Calcium caseinate is very good to have before bed, I really put on a lot of muscle thanks to this.

    Hey stuie- Just wondered if you tried the calcium caseinate and if so what you thought? The same as you I'm moderately lactose intolerant -- have decided I'm ok with the microfiltered whey protein isolate, just like you...

    Your opinion would be appreciated! :-)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    One thing you can do if you are lactose intolerant is to take a lactase tablet with your whey, cc or whatever. I'm pretty sure MP sell them.

    had a quick search but couldn't see anything

    to answer your question tom, I still have like 3.5kg of whey isolate left from a previous bulk purchase. Theres so much left and I dont even know why i bought chocolate, it was always my least favourite milkshake powder as a kid! haha, oh well.

    Im intent on trying some calcium caseinate at some point soon, Im sure with the levels of lactose present it wont cause much problem and will update as and when!

    Calcium Casienate is almost completely devoid of sugar, which would be lactose, so you should be alright with this stuff. However, if you are allergic to milk proteins you may have a problem. Alot of people confuse lactose intolerance with milk protein intolerance.

    Im not amazing with biology but maybe this could shead some light on the subject; ive been told im lactose intollerant but i have no problems eating cheese, chocolate etc. foods which are made from milk being processed in some way. although i havnt drank milk or anything like cream, custard etc. which i know has a high milk content for years.

    any ideas what it is i have a problem with?

    I'm not an expert, but I would think it was lactose intolerance. I think processed cheese etc tends to have less lactose in it due to the processing, so if you are ok with that, you are probably just lactose int. In which case good plan to stay clear of cream, custard etc.
