This study aims at determining if casein would lead to a better bone status than soy in the context of a moderate protein restriction (6% of total energy intake) in growing mice.Ten-week-old female Balb/C mice were divided in four groups of 15 animals. Two groups received 6% of their energy intake as protein, one as casein and the other as soy protein. The third group was a normal-protein control receiving 20% soy protein. The last group (positive contro...
