Protein in Milk, Yogurt, Cheese And Other Dairy Products

Milk and milk products like cheese and yogurt are high in protein content. The milk contains two high quality proteins, about 20 percent casein, and 80 percent whey. Whey is quickly broken down into amino acids and absorbed into the bloodstream. Casein is digested more slowly and provides the body with a steady supply of protein for a longer period of time. The protein in dairy products is good if you want to gain weight.
