Micellar Casein is a, slow release protein derived from milk. It's 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.
This protein source 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.
Micellar Casein is ideal for anyone engaged in a long term physical training plan where getting the right dietary balance is absolutely essential. It's 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.
Add 200-300ml of water or milk into our shaker (the less liquid the thicker the shake will be). Then add one and a half MP large scoops (30g), shake and consume. Consume just before bedtime for optimum results, but can also be taken between meals, 2-3 times a day or as required. Scoop not included.

Strawberry cream smells like milkshake, but taste is disappointing, even with milk. Need to try other flavors to find whats the best for my taste.
Mixes fine, I bought the chocolate flavour which is a bit too sweet for me and less chocolately than I would like but really that is just personal preference. I mix mine with water and heat in microwave for a pre-bedtime feed and hot chocolate-esk drink. You have to heat post mixing or it goes lumpy. Only rated 4 stars as I have no obvious proof.
Recently improved grain size, much finer than before, which has improved its mix-ability. Generally a very good product and should be one of your base supplements (along with whey and creatine). Flavorless tastes the best (like milk).
A bit chalky texture but otherwise nice. Chocolate is the best flavour in my eyes as i've had a few. Does the job as im not wanting to snack during the night which i used to need.
I went for vanilla, wasn't getting on with it as a shake so tried in other ways. I now take with yogurt. 150ml of plain yogurt to a 50ml scoop turns it into vanilla cheesecake...without a biscuit base. Try mixing a little myprotein peanut butter in (good as its runny) or some honey for a change. As for results... Hard to say, it's a good hit of slow release protein, guess that's all you need to know. I have gained nearly 5kg of lean mass in as many weeks and this was part of my program... Could be the pain in the gym that did that though.
Got the strawberry flavour, tastes really nice with skimmed milk and mixes ok just slightly frothy. I use it before bed or before a long shift at work when I know I won't be able to eat anything for hours.
good product, effective as an addition to whey protein. Good value for money. Very powdery but mixes well.
Anyone using this and have problems with lump use the my protein shakers works perfect and seems to be doing the job yet again quality product for the right price from my protein
Easy to mix, great flavour! I always had issues with mixability but this one is the first one that trully satisfies me.
I try this protein for night and is excellent!PERFECT solubility easy to digest and helped enough to physical changes in my body image
Fits in nicely with my diet because of I train 5/6 times a week and work full time. Tastes nice, easy to mix - good reliable source to get the end of the day fix.
All good slow digesting proteins that will give results. I will continue to buy it.
This is the first time ive tried this protein, 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!!!
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, 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).
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 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 similar 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 this protein source on other forums/websites this wasn't anything uncommon and I noticed a lot of comments about how Myprotein'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).
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.
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.
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 one, and it tastes ok as a shake, again not as good as Optimum Nutrition either, which in my opinion is the best one you can buy, this product however is competitively 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.
This protien rocks tastes great mixes well n smell awsome
Mixes well tastes great even better with milk
The product arrived quickly in the post as usual. The protein mixes very nicely in a regular shaker cup. I have not yet tried it in a blender. There is a bit of froth on top when I shake this up but given a couple of gentle shakes of the cup the bubbles disperse. Tastes very nice - I bought vanilla. Not too sweet - just right. Does not give me any gas or digestive discomfort like some other protein brands. I take this before bed, with some peanut butter and natural yoghurt/milk. I wake up feeling great, and not starving hungry like I would if I hadn't taken it. Not sure if that's good or not but I like it. Goes Well With:A good solid diet of nutritious and natural foods plus lots and lots of water.
Excellent protein! It stops completely the hunger and cravings. It makes me fell full longer. When I take it at night I wake up better rested and not trying to eat everything in front. In terms of efficiency I need to keep using to see other than the ones I told.Goes Well With:Water, milk.
Excellent night-time protein, and I am very happy with the results.Goes Well With:I only use it with water as a night-time protein, but the taste is still nice.
Apparently better quality than Calcium version and seems to be worth the extra couple of poundsGoes Well With:Milk
After i tried the products from my protein, i be fascinated. Excellent products at excellent prices. Excellent delivery time, i live in Portugal and it takes just 3/4 days to have the products at my door. Thank you very much MY PROTEIN, keep going with the excellent work!
I've bought this to take either in the evening before bed or to mix 50/50 with whey protein that I put with porridge oats. As usual a great product. Mixes well and works as I want it to. I'd recommend. Goes Well With:Water Milk (almond)
Being a student myprotein products appeal on price but now after switching from optimum nutrition's one, I will not look back I feel like I was ripped off when comparing to what I get from myprotein. To note spent a lot of time researching casein products - this one wins it for me price and quality amazing value Goes Well With:Instant oats
Recently tried this product, and I must say, this product fits the bill! Taken before bed, and works a treat, feeling bigger than ever, noticeable gains, buy with less recovery time. The taste is fantastic (chocolate) and mixes with water well, I'd say it mixes better with milk, but before bed water is my preference. ALL IN ALL a great product. Goes Well With:Milk, water
I know it a bit early to make a review on this item..to weather it works o not but the natural taste is good..iv been on this supplement now for the past week and a half..I and I do feel my muscle are fuller..
great product i stack this with the egg white powder and almond butter for my pre bedtime snack, it ensures the best recovery and have noticed better recovery from DOMS. choccy tastes great, overall great productGoes Well With:MyProtein Almond butter and Egg White powder
Best type of casein as Micellar is the slowest digesting protein. It is worth to throw few pounds on top of Calcium Caseinate as thi can keep muscle protein synthesis for longest and can take up to 8 hours to digest which is great if taking before going to bed.
Another great product from my protein. Tastes great with milk or water and mixes well.Goes Well With:milk, water
Find this an excellent protein at an excellent price. I use it will cutting( tho would easily use for bulking also) keeps me full inbtween meals and drip feeds me quality protein all day( and night if u take protein before bed) the taste across the range is not too bad( iv tried them all) vanilla is my favourite. This is my staple go to day to day protein bar whey after training Goes Well With:Water if cutting. Milk if bulking and hard training
Great product that is easy to prepare and consume. I bought strawberry and the unflavoured variation which I mix one scoop of each together for a less sweeter taste which is great to have just before a sleep. This comes up nice with a little less water and froths up which is great to scoop out with a spoon. If you are looking for 30-40g of slow digesting protein this is cheapest way to get it.
Fantastic, excellent, the best product I have ever used both in taste and the results. days and I can notice the difference. Please keep up the marvelous work.Goes Well With:anything, oats, smoothies etc.
The product was delivered quickly and and on time. I had chosen the chocolate flavour, when made up with 200ml water it is still very thin and when shaken there is quite a bit of froth. The taste is OK. I have used it in with oats and unsweetened cocoa to give the oats some flavour which works well
Tastes good mixed with yoghurt. Protein desert!
Always order my protein and shops from my protein. Never had a issue. Products are always of high quality and standard, great tasting and ease of use. Order and usually receive with on 2 day. Never had an issue
This is a good product and I've noticed good strength gains and look better after 2 weeks use. Appears to be working well with a good diet and training 3/4 times a week. Only complaint I have is it leaves a chalky sensation on your teeth/tongue though maybe I'm not adding enough liquid?Goes Well With:Whey Protein, Green Tea Extract & Omega Oils
Don't neglect proper nutrition before you go to bed, you sleep on average for 7-8 hours a night, and in this time if your body is without a source of protein will go catabolic (and this is very bad for those hard earned gains). This is the most slowly digesting of all similar powders available on the market, slowly drip-feeding those sore muscles while you sleep. Remember you go the gym to damage muscle, you go to sleep to repair and build muscle! Maccy
got this to take before bed, mixes really well with milk, tastes like a milkshake, I ordered the unflavoured & just add some fruit juice to give it a flavour. Sleep much better & dont seem to have as many muscle aches through the night after a training day.Goes Well With:Milk
Love this product, especially before bedtime for a slower release, if only the misses would oblige the same. Went for the unflavoured (slightly cheaper) option, taste is bland but that's obviously going to be the case. Tried the vanilla before and its more than palatable. Best value on the market.Goes Well With:Protein souffle/pancakes, or jut water in a shaker if you need ya grams worth before bedtime.
Effective, tasty, cheap and ideal before bed. What else do you need for this price?
Fantastic supplement, perfect for post training or before bed as a slow digesting protein source. Great price also, would recommend to anyone. Goes Well With:Skimmed milk, Water
Mixes pretty well if drunk soon after shaking. Got vanilla which tastes good (not too sweet). Really felt the effects in the mornings after consumption, muscles felt much less fatigued then usual. Recommend this product
Works really well in morning and at night, felt a massive difference in my energy and strength gains from taking this regularly.Goes Well With:Instant oats are great with this product.
I found this product to taste great (strawberry) I've had proteins in the paste that said a flavour but tasted foul, it fills me up for hours during the day or at night! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a before bed Protien
I will definitively recommend this product for those who are looking for substitute for pre bedtime meal. Goes Well With:Whey protein, BCAA, Maltodextrin, Pulse for building strength and muscle mass
