Product Overview

Product Overview

What is Micellar Casein?

Micellar Casein is a, slow release protein derived from milk. Micellar Casein is absorbed slowly by the stomach allowing a tapered supply of amino acids to the muscle over a prolonged period of time. This makes Micellar Casein the ideal protein supplement for between meals and before bed. During sleep, the body is normally starved of nutrients as it is impractical to consume food and therefore, a slow release protein can be ideal for recovery throughout the night.

Benefits of Micellar Casein

Micellar Casein has a complete amino acid profile and contains branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Micellar Casein has 24g of protein per serving which will contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Who is Micellar Casein Suitable for?

Micellar Casein is ideal for anyone engaged in a long term physical training plan where getting the right dietary balance is absolutely essential. Micellar Casein is also an excellent supplement to help increase daily protein intake. As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming before bed or between meals, 2-3 times per day.

Key Benefits

  • Contributes to the growth of muscle mass
  • Consume before bed or between meals

First try of Casein

This is the first time ive tried casein, 2 shakes in so cant comment on effectiveness. Obviously with all supplements its hard to know if the gains you make are actually from the gym or if its down to the supplementation. Either way this shake isnt bad, nothing like whey protein its thicker with a chalky texture (not taste) the powder is really fine like cornflour and mixes just as good as whey protein. Combining this with creatine, bcaa and impact whey so hoping for some nice lean gains. And as usual great price by myprotein!!!

Casein is casein

Casein is casein. I have no special qualms or advantages to this product. I've received it properly packed, and tried out a bit of casein in yogurt. I had no chalky feelings or problems in mixability like others (not that I care much about mixing). As for taste, I don't care about taste, I order my stuff unflavoured whenever I can, so no negative or positive points on that. As for effectiveness, casein is casein. It's most useful long hours post workout or taking it at night. You can consume it in the evening to safeguard your muscles when you're doing IF (14-16 hours).

Good

I have the unflavoured and it's drinkable on its own un like the average unflavoured drinks. Very fluffy texture, but it goes down well with half a scoop of a different flavoured protein in the mix

great product and price

Great product at great price. I bought a 4kg pouch unflavored. The taste is not good but its working and that's what matters. I take two scoops before bed mixed in 700 ml water. I wouldn't be able to afford the same dosing with other micellar casein products. I will definitely buy again.

Goes Well With:

peanut butter, drinking chocolate and milk

Bought a 1kg bag of vanilla after reading everyone else's reviews and I'm glad I did as the usual next day aches/stiffness has all but gone since taking this before bed. Firstly, don't expect this to be as smooth/easy to drink as Impact Whey. On my first mix I followed the packet instructions but found it to be quite thick, with a lot of froth and with an incredible chalky after taste / texture which I ended up pouring away and feeling quite disappointed with it. After reading some reviews about Micellar Casein on other forums/websites this wasn't anything uncommon and I noticed a lot of comments about how My Protein's is the best on the market so stuck with it. Either use a blender or a hand whisk and jug and the mix is much easier to drink and tastes a lot nicer. There's still a slight chalky texture but you quickly get past this. I'm also using more water (roughly 400ml).

micellar casein

I thought it was a pretty good product. Still using it one shake before bed and I feel better each morning with a desire to eat more. Great for helping you get a good start to the day. Mixes great, tastes ok for unflavoured but would recommend to anyone trying to build muscle mass 24/7. Goes well with bcaa+ and hard gainer extreme.

Goes Well With:

Bcaa+. hard gainer extreme and also MCT and the creature.

Works great

Fantastic product. I've only been using it for a few weeks but I'm already seeing results. Using this along with a strict diet plan and you'll be on your way in no time.

Ok but not as good as ON

This product works effectively in regards to what you want a casein shake to do, it mixes ok, not as good as Optimum Nutrition's micellar casein, and it tastes ok as a shake, again not as good as Optimum Nutrition either, which in my opion is the best micellar casein you can buy, this product however is competively priced which is why i opted to try it out, you get 700g more with MP for the same price as ON, in this regard though i do think you get what you pay for as ON is a better quality product, this however is a workable low budget option.

Goes Well With:

oats, yoghurt, home baking recipes just not a good shake.
