The latest research suggests that protein synthesis is better with a blend. Given the fact that we are all interested in increasing muscle mass, I would do three things.

1.   Make sure my protein intake from all sources is at least 1 gram per pound of body weight.
2.   Use a protein blend. Preferably a 80/20 or 50/50 casein to whey blend.
3.   Have an even amount of protein across all meals including pre-workout and post-workout.
