the process to isolate the proteins reduces the absorption rate of whey isolates significantly.

absorption rates of whole foods will always be better.

if the concern is hormones, then the only way to circumvent this is to eat organic meats...

From what I recall the bioavailibilty of whey is pretty high.

Absorption rates for isolate are quick, but you can slow that down by adding fats/fiber...etc

I typically buy a whey protein isolate/concentrate mix and typically use it for pre/post workout. I try to use a casein powder for other times but if I don't have any I'll just make sure to add extra fats like coconut milk/nut butters or milled flax seed.
