Casein might be OK for gastric sleeve patients after the post op liquid phase. It’s most definitely NOT ok for gastric bypass or DS patients. See Dr. Rollers post above.

No offense Alex, but just because one Dr. has that opinion does not make it a proven fact.

There might be a study in the works on this issue

I could not find any completed studies, so this is Dr. roller's conjecture.

The RNY bypassed just 3 feet of the small intestine, but still leaves 17. So it doesn't make sense to me that would make casein an ineffective source of Protein for bypass patients.

Please do more research. You’re very mistaken. See http://bariatrictimes.com/protein-and-the-bariatric-patient-supplemental-protein-or-amino-acids/ . Google a little and you’ll find MANY studies showing that WPI is definitely the way to go for patients that have malabsorptive procedures.

Alex ... from the article

" Whether rapid versus slow uptake of amino acids are better for Protein gain among bariatric patients have not been explored."

There was absolutely nothing in that article that supports the claim that casein is inappropriate for RNY patients.
