A study of 179 people age 60+ undergoing resistance training has found dairy protein to be superior to soy protein for strength(1).
There were three protein options in the study: dairy, soy, and the usual protein intake of the subjects (e.g. meat). All subjects trained the same: 3 times a week for 12 weeks.
The difference may be explained by previous research which shows that soy protein doesn't deliver the same muscle protein synthesis results as dairy protein(2), which could be due to differences in the fundamental amino acid composition of the protein and its rate of digestion. Furthermore, the newer study suggests that estrogen-like compounds in soy might have been responsible for the lower results of the soy group.
Other findings were that lean mass, physical function, mental health scores, as well as the decrease in fat mass were the same for all training groups.
