Default Milk, new sports drink question

I see the relevant thread is or was always locked.

Question is whether non-fat milk could equal or surpass the benefits of isotonic/hypotonic sports drinks DURING the workout itself as opposed specifically to post workout. I understand the benefits of iso/hypotonic sports drinks, in terms of intra-workout rehydration, is that they don't stay long in the gut. Or something like that.

Anyway, curious as to your perspective on this.

How badly do you want to puke during the workout?

Milk is too slowly digesting to be used during your typical workout. Maybe a very long-rest interval/low rep workout (where there is little metabolic stress).

Why not take a sports drink such as Powerade Zero and toss in the appropriate amount of MPI and dextrose to accomplish roughly the same thing.

You'll probably skip the puking part.

I'd have thought the milk protein element would be the component that slows the digestion, so not sure why that would help with anything.

It is, I'd add whey to a carbo drink.

No lactose? I thought that was the main culprit in gastric upset from milk. I could have (and probably) thought wrong.

It's the casein in milk protein (~80%) that slows gastric emptying.
