Calcium Caseinate is made from fresh skimmed milk, and is a spray-dried milk protein that is also low in fat, carbohydrate and sodium.
Calcium Caseinate provides 27g protein per serving which will contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Calcium Caseinate can be used by anyone to reach daily protein requirements easily. The recommended dosage for this effect is at least 30 grams of Calcium Caseinate in a serving. Due to it being slow digesting it is recommend to take this in the evening.
Upon mixing you may notice that our Calcium Caseinate forms a cloudy but stable, colloidal but mostly homogenised suspension. You may also observe a higher foam level than that frequently seen on other protein powders. This is nothing to worry about and merely represents the typical physical properties of this product. The flavour profile of this product may also differ from that of other protein powders, with Calcium Caseinate having a thicker but grainier presence on the palate with a slightly flat flavour peak.
Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.
Casein is best enjoyed in the evening to contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. To reap the benefits of this product add 1 1/4 large scoops (30g) to 300-400ml of water or milk in a Myprotein shaker half an hour before bed. Alternatively consume any time of day to increase your daily protein intake.
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This product is intended to be used alongside an active lifestyle and a balanced diet. Suitable for vegetarians.

I have used calcium caseinate for over 25 years, I used to buy it from Boots in the small 200g packets but it was costing a fortune. I have competed at national level as a bodybuilder and have always recommended this product as a fantastic slow release protein, which in my opinion just didn't get the coverage it deserved (whey etc being all the rage). Unfortunately for Myprotein it is the end of the road with this product for me. For some bizarre reason it seems like someone has decided to add lecithin as an additional additive! I have no idea why... well I do know why, but it has no place being added to this product and has totally ruined a very good source of protein. Caseinate was never the best for tasting nice or even mixing as you require a substantial amount of fluids to mix it correctly, but taste for me was never of any interest, it`s what it does that counts, and it does it very well. With the additive it's now impossible to mix and quite frankly even I struggle with the taste and texture. I`d liken it to drinking sand... utterly vile. I don't think this was ever the most popular supplement, but I feel My protein has finally put the nail in the coffin for this. Well done guys, a job well done!Goes Well With:Used to go well with whey...not anymore!!
People complain about mixing with water, mix with almond butter instead, 1 scoop of this in a bowl, mix with half a tea spoon of chilli powder and a tea spoon of cinemon then mash together with about 3-5 table spoons of almond butter, makes a cracking pudding/paste low in carbs high in good fat and packed wth protein, stop moanng and use your loaf!!! P.s this is based on using chocolate flavourGoes Well With:Almond butter, chilli and cinemon
Effective stuff but the mixability is so bad. After shaking the result is a foamy cream and u need a spoon to eat it.Goes Well With:a spoon
To a 300ml 'clip and seal' beaker I add 35g of powder (unflavoured), one teaspoon of horlicks and 225 - 250ml of skimmed milk. Shake hard for 20 seconds then leave for 5 minutes. It sets like a mousse and you can tuck in with a spoon. Up to you what milk and flavours you add but this ends up like a treat at the end of the day of work, training and bland low fat food.Goes Well With:An early night to recover and grow
I don't really care about taste and tbh have never really cared that a shake doesn't mix too well until now. It's mixability takes the P I double S, it is so thick that is got stuck in my shaker and adding more water only makes it worse. I wish I could get a different product.
I have used Optimun Nutritions Casein Protein Powder a number of times, mostly the chocolate variety. I enjoyed the taste of this and could easily put a double serving in water and drink easily before bed and enjoy the shake. MyProtein's Casein powder though tastes very bad, and does not mix well at all. Even just with a single serving and lots of water this is not an enjoyable shake. I have tried experimenting with different ways to consume as I dislike the shake so much and the only palatable use for it I have found is to mix with my oats and use as a meal replacement. The mixture becomes very dry and stodgy but at least edible. MyProtein offers great value which is why I started using their products, however this is one where I think I would rather pay the extra for a more premium and enjoyable product.Goes Well With:Oats
I normally disparage people who leave 1 star reviews as going overboard but after getting this, I can't honestly say it's not good enough to get 2. I bought one kilo of the chocolate flavour. The first thing I noticed was that the mixability was very poor. I used 400ml of milk with 1 scoop of the powder (as the instructions said) and after 2 shakes, it stopped moving around in the flask. When I looked inside, it had turned into a semi-solid goop that was somewhat disgusting. I added another 100ml of milk but it did little to help. Even then, when I rinsed out the flask, there were still solid, unmixed lumps, and plenty of them. I usually put my protein shakes in a glass to drink but with this one, it didn't pour out of the flask. I had to scoop it out with a spoon. This stuff was more like angel delight than a milk shake, drinking it just wasn't an option, it had to be eaten. I really wanted to try and get this all down but after eating one third, I just had to give up. The taste was terrible and I just couldn't stomach it any further. I can't comment on effectiveness for obvious reasons. Now I'm quite annoyed that I've wasted around 25 on this dreadful product that I simply cannot eat. I'm very disappointed, especially after how much I enjoyed the MyProtein Impact Whey. Goes Well With: Nothing that I know of.
I consider myself a person who can stomach anything but this protein I found un-drinkable, very chalky, with no real taste (even when doubled up with about 30 drops of flavour on top of the strawberry flavoured protein) it was still undrinkable. I can't comment on effectiveness because I wasn't able to fully try it. I suggest that if you are going to buy this, get a sample first, you will thank me after.
I normally take the micellar casein before bed or a meal replacement which tastes and mixes perfect but I wanted to try the caseinate out of curiosity. Got the chocolate flavour which tasted horrible and artificial. After blending it I ended up with a very grainy thick texture which I had to use a spoon to eat. Will use only when I have to now. Dissapointed. Stick with miceller. Goes Well With:A lot of water
Upon first use thought this stuff was a bit odd - as it turns into a mousse when mixing. Then it dawned on me great that was! Whack 300ml of Unsweetened Almond Milk in your shaker, shake like crazy for about a minute, wait another minute while it sets, then tuck in with a spoon! Chocolate Mousse Pudding every night before bed - and still on the gains train! - Genius!Goes Well With:Pudding cravings & overnight protein!
Im review about calcium casein non flaworet original taste like you aspect it's not a best but it's beer worksGoes Well With:With low fat milk or water
This stuff absorbs way to much water. Don't dare put 2 scoops in 1 shaker or you will end up with an undrinkable slop. I tried mixing mine with instant oats and the stuff just set solid. I had Chocolate Smooth flavor and its was okay but not as good as other chocolate flavors from this shop. Definitely won't buy this again. Waste of money.Goes Well With:Tons and tons of water
I have been taking MP calcium caseinate for several weeks now and it has proven itself to be an effective and easy to use supplement. What makes this product quite remarkable is the fact that the powder basically has zero carbohydrates and yet still maintains a decent chocolatey taste. In my opinion I would even go so far as to say the chocolate flavour beats the powders with carbs I have tried in the past. The powder mixes easily into milk and water and, I assume, any liquid with comparable consistency. One general thing I have noticed with powders containing casein is that no matter how well mixed they are, the resulting shake seems to have a slightly gritty texture - but this is something I have seen even in much more expensive products. I have also used the product to boost the protein content of my home made flapjacks and have not noticed any negative impact on their taste or consistency. In terms of effectiveness, I use this product as a source of slow-digesting protein throughout the day and the chocolate flavour really does make this both tasty and easy. On a personal note, I would add that this protein seems to make me feel fuller for longer - especially compared to whey products, which makes sticking to my nutritional plan that little bit easier. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a slow digesting protein that tastes good, has a great nutritional profile, and is real value for money. Goes Well With:Milk / Water / Oats / Smoothies
Would not recommend this at all. Its like concrete even mixed with 500ml of water so you will be waking up in the middle of the night with a full bladder. Taste was also awful i had vanilla. never will be buying again, not up to their usual high standards
Used this product before and definitely works, vital for when I have done a huge sesh at the gym then need to sleep 7/8 hours for max growth, this stuff stays in my system well. Sometimes even take another one at 3/4am to keep the process going. The Caseinate definitely contributes to max growth over night. Also mixability-wise I found it fine, unusually it first goes super thick then i come back to it an hour later and it has dropped and thinned out. Perfect for avoiding midnight bloating, which is what Milk Protein Smooth can often do.
Expected better as all other myprotein products ive tried are excellent. This one unfortunately not for me. taste is ok. mixabity is poor with water or milk. As for effect I havnt been taking long enough to notice.
I train late night/early morning(any time between 23:30 and 5:00) so casein would be an ideal go to protein for me as after completing my workout i go home to bed and rest. I used to get DOMS the next evening but now I've tried it I have to say my recovery is much better and I don't move like an extra from the walking dead series. The only let down for me is the taste, I love vanilla but this shake really lacked much vanilla flavour at all and adding more powder just really made it seriously thick. However I overcame this by adding in a few extra vanilla flavdrops or using up some last bits of chocolate protein mixed in.. I would happily give this five stars if it had more flavour, I shall try more flavours and leave another comment once tested.
Great value for money first time trying my protein supplements gotta say its a thumbs up for sure. I passionate about bodybuilding its part of me since my teen and now iv discovered my protein it'll be a partner to my training at the gym and in the kitchen will definitely recommend others. 5*
It is a must have to drink it with your Whey protein and before going to bed. Chocolate flavor tastes best for me.
I use this before bedtime, the vanilla flavour is very subtle, mixes well, a little thick however it's fine with extra water :)
