Male Speaker: What's the difference in whey protein and casein protein? Dr. Martin D. Fried: The whey protein empties faster from the stomach, it remains as a liquid so it empties fast. The casein protein curdles in the stomach it becomes curds and because it's a solid in the stomach once it's has the acid it empties slower. Male Speaker: What does breast milk contains? Dr. Martin D. Fried: Breast milk is 60% whey and 40% casein, because its whey predominant it empties the fastest of all formulas. Male Speaker: Any form that's closer to that kind of combination or something less to that kind combination? Dr. Martin D. Fried: Yes Enfamil is also 60% whey and 40% casein. Male Speaker: What about Simliac? Dr. Martin D. Fried: Simliac is 80% casein and 20% whey, tends to give more of the feeling of fullness to the baby and it also empties a little slower then. Male Speaker: What about the Goodstart series? Dr. Martin D. Fried: Goodstart is a 100% whey hydrolysate it's been digested but, it still 100% whey so it empties as a liquid and it empties about the same rate as Enfamil would empty. Male Speaker: Would it make the most sense to copy Mother Nature are there reasons where you can vary from they make more sense. Dr. Martin D. Fried: Makes the most sense to copy Mother Nature, there is a reason breast milk is 60% whey and 40% casein, it empties quicker and then babies are hungry again to eat every couple of hours. Male Speaker: But general most kids will thrive that a healthy child apply with any form but for some reason Mother Nature had a reason to do it and I sort of like I think we should copy what Mother Natural types. Dr. Martin D. Fried: Yeah, I agree.
