Consuming quality casein helps your body rebuild micro-traumatized muscles from the workout. For lactose-tolerant people, casein can be an excellent source of protein for building muscle. It is one of the two proteins found in dairy products including cow’s milk, cream, Greek yogurt, ice cream, butter, and cottage cheese. Casein is also present in less obvious sources such as tuna, dairy-free cheese, coffee creamer, cereal bars, chocolates, and processed meats.
