ive been using the ON why, or lately EAS whey because it is cheaper along with ON casein.

ive been experimenting an found that 3 scoops of when and 1 scoop of casein makes for about the right consistency.

if the only benefit is for hunger control, i dont see a benefit for me, anyway. i think i do recall lyle saying in one of his books casein has a muscle sparing affect...not sure if whey does or not.

Yeah, this. ON brand whey and casein mixed together mix way better than my two orders of TrueProtein MPI. The MPI I got both times were just...dusty, if that makes sense. I used them, but only out of principle.

I've never tried/tasted MPI (knowingly, at least) so I can't comment on in it that regard.

Do you think there is any benefit to MPI vs. when you mix casein and whey at home in a 80/20 ratio? Some magic bonding I'm not aware of?

This article discusses some issues about casein vs. whey

as does part 2.

Nope. If you prefer to mix them yourself, then do that. There's no positive or negative to doing it that way vs. buying the straight up MPI.

I think MPI is generally cheaper, is the biggest benefit.

I also think human breast milk has a migher percentage of whey to casein, if that helps.

ON Casesin with Subscribe and Save on Amazon is cheaper than Trueprotein's MPI once you factor shipping in. :|
