Is animal protein better than whey protein (besides pre/post workout)? And why so if it is?

it leaves you actually feeling full (as opposed to just sipping a shake) and in many cases taste better

Im pretty sure the distinction is animal protein vs vegetable protein.
Whey is from dairy which is from cow so its classed as animal protein.
Nevertheless whey isolate is the best source as far as being biologically active & optimum amino acid profile. But for a balanced diet which involves other things like vits & minerals, you shouldnt force yourself to choose.

Whey is #1

I reserve my powder for post workout, or the occasional vanilla in my morning coffee :P
