Casein: evil or ok from the right source?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 26, 2013 at 8:02 PM

The Austin Primal meetup hosted Dr Sebring over the weekend and one thing I noticed was he picked on Casein quite a lot as a problematic protein, causing inflammation and in general the same kinds of problems that gluten causes. He recommended Whey as a better source of protein if you insist on getting it from milk. From Mark Sisson's blog I'd get the impression that it's mostly ok except for a small number of individuals.

What are your impressions? I didn't get a chance to dig in more with him. Do you think goat or sheep cheese is inherently better? I've read stuff about there being two types of Casein and those two have the same type as human breast milk.

All things being equal, I'd rather ban dairy from my household but there are limits to what I can get my kids to eat due to living in society and I'd been viewing dairy as a better than the alternative food. That is, causes some problems but also provides nutrition and acts as a liquid multi-vitamins. I tried goat milk once but I can only find Myenburg and it's very heavily processed so I've been buying Organic Valley pasture raised milk lately (my wife hates the non-homogenized "Grass Milk"). Same for cheese and butter.

Thanks for the synopsis. 23andme claims I'm almost certainly lactose intolerant but never causes me problems.

milk protein is not a problem for most people. don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

There was some noise about A1 versus A2 casein a few years back. The studies supporting A2 over A1 weren't that compelling in the end, nobody consuming different types of casein can tell the difference.
