Some may assume that whey and casein are the same but actually, they are not. They do have some similarities such as the fact that they both come from milk. Casein comes from different bioactive peptides. These are known to provide a lot of benefits to the body. They can even control blood pressure which is always ideal for people who are trying to regulate their blood pressure.

Whey contains fewer calories as compared to casein which makes people choose this more when they are trying to lose weight. Casein is usually thicker if it would be made into a shake as compared to whey. They both have unique advantages that can make people make the right choice.

Rutile and Anatase are different forms of titanium dioxide. Rutile titanium dioxide is more common than anatase titanium dioxide. Rutile titanium dioxide is commonly referred to as R – type; it has a stable lattice. Rutile is often red. Powdered rutile is white.

Anatase titanium dioxide is referred to as the A-type titanium dioxide. It is a rare form of titanium oxide. The color of Anatase can be between yellow and blue when impurities are present, but it in its pure form, it is colorless or white. If the temperature is high, the anatase type can be converted into rutile type of titanium dioxide.

Rutile titanium dioxide is the most common form, and it is utilized in interference applications because of its high refractive index. It is also rocklike and has chemical resistant properties. When viewed by transmitted light, the rutile demonstrates a deep red color.

Rutile has many substantial uses. In beach sands, if there is a considerable quantity of rutile, it serves as an essential component of heavy mineral sand ore deposits. These sand deposits are eventually extracted to obtain the rutile mineral for the production of refractory ceramic, titanium metal, and pigment.

Anatase is a polymorph that changes into rutile when it is heated to about 915 degrees centigrade. Anatase is the most unique form of titanium dioxide. The main difference is distinguishing between cleavage and crystal habit.

Rutile and Anatase are two types of titanium dioxide. One difference between them is there color. Rutile is a deep red, while anatase can vary in color between yellow and blue. While the color differs, rutile and anatase both have the same use. They both help paper, paint, and ceramic turn to a white pigmentation.

Rutile also has another use. It is used in sunscreens, which allows the sunscreen to absorb ultraviolet rays. Both rutile and anatase give minerals and gems an additonal luster. As time has gone on, these two have been percieved as dangerous for they are carcinogenic.
