How do proteins from milk compare to proteins from other sources?

Proteins from milk are high-quality, complete proteins. This means that they contain all nine essential amino acids in just the right amounts. But proteins are more than just the sum of the amino acids they contain. Proteins from milk contain bioactive peptides (short amino acid sequences) that are key to their benefits. These peptides have a positive, proven impact on body fat and lipid metabolism. 1
