    Are you using soy isolate or soy as a protein source? Whey Isolate trumps soy and casein regarding muscle protein synthesis.

    I prefer isolate over concentrate and blends.
    I do use Beverly International's protein powders (essentially a blend of medical grade protein), more as a meal replacement due to the fat content and egg protein. However I prefer isolate over anything. Especially pre, during, and immediately post workout.

    Advantages of whey isolate:
    ~lactose free
    ~contains beneficial sub-fractions of whey such as beta-lactoglobulin, lactoferrin, and alpha-lactalbumin.
    ~higher protein content per gram of substance.
