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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
All good slow digesting proteins that will give results.
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. 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).
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 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).
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 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.
This protien rocks tastes great mixes well n smell awsome
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 without the casein. 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.
Micellar Casein is 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 casein, 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- miscellar casein wins it for me price and quality amazing value Goes Well With:Instant oats
Recently tries MyProtein's Casein, 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 the micellar casein 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 Micellar Casein Protein, 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 the Caseins 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 quality casein 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
Casein 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
Really tasty and hits the spot before bed.
Exactly what I want. Recovery during sleep and a protein boost in the morning. Great when bulking
Taste isn't the best as it is unflavoured. But, to be honest, I've drank worse. If you're looking to buy casein protein. I definitely recommend you buying this one. Cheap as chips and it works :)
Love this product taste just like hot chocolate. I mix with warm milk just before bed
First time buying this product, It works well and tastes great (vanilla) however, Upon mixing it reduces 50ml of water to froth, the froth fills the entire shaker, my colleage has the same product but no froth :/ confusing, maybe its just the batch.
Tried the Micella Protein for the first time last night and have to say that the chocolate is actually really tasty! I had tried another, much more expensive brand which tasted foul and so was really impressed with My Proteins. I mixed it with milk in a shaker to get rid of any lumps and then put it in a mug in the microwave to heat up. Slept like a baby, right through the night. Time will tell if it helps in the long run.
Ive just started a cut and am now using this as a bedtime snack you make up feeling good and not a sore as you would usually, would recommend to anyone for a good source of protein Goes Well With:Milk or water, life
Is is very satiationa and I felo no hunger at all. The taste of the neutral one is not really nice, and it is very difficult to mask it. Goes Well With:water
Decent in flavour and in mix, but I find it effective and it keeps me from waking up too hungry aswell! I would definitely recommend some casein.Goes Well With:Water
Taste is a little to be desired. Unflavoured but has a strange after taste. Mixes better will milk than water. Very effective. Since using this before bed I have seen an improvement.Goes Well With:Hurricane XS
Mixes real good and unflavored is a really natural taste i like it!!!
I use a blender so mixability wasn't an issue. The strawberry flavour is nice, first tried it with water but couldn't drink it so I use semi skimmed milk. It is very thick and quiet grainy but it isn't unpleasant with milk. Goes Well With:Milk
Vanilla tastes great and mixes pretty well too, top stuff for increasing protein synthesis during night time and helps gaining a lot easier, affordable price too for very good qualityGoes Well With:Milk or 50/50 split water/milk oats if using during the day whey protein
Taste and mixability: Very good (Vanilla), mixes well with only 10 shakes. Slight downside is that it is making me need to use the toilet in the night, but I will try taking it earlier and hope this remedies the issue.
I started using Protein Powders just before Christmas for the first time whilst also following a calorie controlled diet and working out to Gillian Michaels various DVD's 5-8 times a week. I have been having problems waking up in the middle of the night with my stomach rumbling from feeling very hungry and I would always head for the kitchen to find the peanut butter which didn't always work. I started to do some research about different types of Protein powders and found Casein protein powder tapped this into google and the My protein website came up. Clicked onto Live chat and spoke to a Customer Service Agent I think his name was Tom I asked a few questions about the casein protein and would it be suitable to take before bed and the answer was yes, with the slow release and muscle repair. I wish I had found this sooner and will definitely be purchasing this from now on.Goes Well With:Love it with water and mixes very well.
I am really enjoying this shake before bed. It tastes great and mixes well. I bought it because I often find myself craving something sweet before bed and this chocolate shake satisfies that craving. Consistency is good. I am looking for a hot chocolate consistency and find I achieve it by adding 200ml to one scoop.Goes Well With:On its own with 30 seconds in the microwave.
Even when mixed with only a little amount of water, this is not the thickest casein you're going to get. I'd describe the texture as creamy, opposite to more pudding like, which I prefer. However, I used a different casein in a 2:1 ratio (2 units of myprotein.com casein) and got the texture to my liking. Mixing with spoon in a bowl (of water) was poor, but when mixed in a shaker, the texture was consistent and smooth. The taste is decent; it's not one of the sweetest caseins, but it tastes very nice. The price is the strongest selling point of this product. When bought in a 4kg pouch, this is by far the cheapest casein I managed to find. I still intend to mix it with other caseins to get the desired consistency, but I'll be buying this product for a long time.Goes Well With:Water
Mix with cofee, cinamon or chocalte with some sugar or honey. Good miday day drink or before bed
I was concerned about mixability after reading previous reviews however I have had no problems at all. It tastes great - almost completely flavourless which is what I was looking for. It allows me to vary the use far more than a flavoured product. Makes excellent protein fluff and works well in smoothies. Best price I've found online for a product of this quality. Will be repeat ordering for sure
This is a great protein source to feed your muscles over a prolonged period of time. I use this to take with my fats as a meal and also take this about 30 minutes before I sleep at night. Taste could be better but it's not a dissapointment. I would recommend this product.
The taste is superb and mixes fantastic. Extremely satisfied.
I use this product to help in hitting my required protein intake when training hard. I use the unflavoured version which to be fair doesn't taste great but when mixed with milk and a teaspoon of honey, or even fruit juice it's not bad at all. I'd be keen to see a version that doesn't include any soy but this is the cleanest casein I can find anywhere.Goes Well With:Fruit juice, honey, vanilla essence, a banana.
Its very helpful to build your muscles, recommend it.
Great tasting product, I got the strawberry version and it tastes better than the normal whey. A slight few issues with my body adapting the first few nights, kept on waking up in the middle of the night needing the loo! Highly recommend.
Having tried other brands this stuff is far superior! The taste is better and cheaper too!
Nice chocolate taste and mixes well with skmmied milk
I have started taking myprotein casein each evening before bed to provide protein to prevent a catabolic state while I sleep. The product mixes very well, and has a taste to match. I split this 50/50 with impact whey and mix with water to provide a mixture of release times of protein. I wake up in the morning fnot starving hungry as well!Goes Well With:Impact whey. Mixed with water.
Better value alternative to Optimum Nutrition casein protein, got the vanilla which doesn't taste as sweet nor mix as well but still worth it in my book.Goes Well With:Water before bed, or mixed in with protein pancakes or souffle.
Great slow release protein, helps to maintain muscle mass and prevent losses when I'm not working out. Also a great option for breakfast when I'm in a rush. Keeps me full till lunch, got the strawberry cream version. Tastes greatGoes Well With:Skimmed milk or stacked with whey protein
Micellar casein has improved in it's texture and now mixes better with much less thickness in the shake, putting it nearly as smooth as wheys. It's just whey but slow digesting and slightly thicker shakes. Use this for bed times, or in smaller smounts in shakes, or alongside a supplement 'Beta Ecdysterone' and / or 'Methoxy Isoflavone" for better protein synthesis. it may need a little more flavouring powder / drops than with whey.Goes Well With:Water, MP flavourings.
Great price. Mixes well. This is now a staple addition to my supplement regime. Mixed with vanilla true whey there's no need to buy flavoured.Goes Well With:True Whey/Total Whey
I am not a body builder. I am a 55 year old male who wants to take regular protein supplements to avoid age-related muscle loss and also to aid with night-time sleeping. I am very active and run 20 miles a week, swim 2 miles a week and cycle 30 miles a week. I take the protein mixed into milk-based hot chocolate made with pure cocoa powder. The first time I made it I added 30 g to the hot chocolate and it made the mixture quite viscous and the taste of chocolate could not disguise the taste of the powder, despite buying the non-flavoured version. I drank it shortly before going to bed and slept amazingly well, but woke up with bad indigestion and bloated stomach. I have since reduced the dose to about 15 g and not had these problems, but still generally benefit from a good nights sleep. With 15 g instead of 30 g, the effect on taste is a lot better and after a few sips I actually like the flavour which seems to get better the more I drink! I can't say if its helping or not with muscle loss, but I do feel I have more energy these days and will continue with this regime for the next few months.Goes Well With:Hot cocoa drink
Love the taste (vanilla) and the way it mixes. Although I've given it 5 stars, I can't honestly say whether it's effective or not, because I also use whey concentrate and isolate for pre and post workout meals. It's an excellent way to ensure I take in enough protein it can't really be ineffective. I'll definitely be buying some more when it's gone.Goes Well With:More or less anything.
The taste is great (chocolade smooth) and the delivery was fast (three days, live in Denmark) But I must say that it's hard to finish before I go to bed, grainy and puts a layer in your mouth. Read that this is "normal" for Casein, and being the only downside, I think I will continue to buy this product.Goes Well With:A BLENDER ;)
great tasting product. Not to thick like some other brands I have tried. will definitely buy againGoes Well With:milk and myprotein peanut butter
I use this protein in between meals and before bedtime. It's easy to mix and a great taste. I would recommend this product.
Perfect mixability, very nice taste...best price among other casein proteins. Will definitely buy again)Goes Well With:Even water is ok:)
Tastes good and works well. If you can ignore the fact that it isn't a smooth shake, it's greatGoes Well With:Water and Milk and a banana for breakfast
Kept waking in the middle of the night like a hungry baby! This has done the trick. Tastes Greta, mixes well, best with water, milk is a bit too thick. Mixes well with instant oats during the daytime for a meal after training. Goes Well With:Instant oats
I am a regualr user of the calcium caseinate version and thought i would give the micellar casein a go as the mixability and drinkability of the calcium caseinate was a real struggle for me. I have the strawberry flavour micellar casein and it tastes great (taste reminds me of nesquick so really nice). It's alot thinner than calcium caseinate thus making it easier to drink. Great before bed drink. Dont know if it will be a long term replacement for the calcium caseinate though as i have just bought the new myprotein blender bottle and this makes mixing the calcium caseinate alot easier. The jury is out on which is best for me. Goes Well With:Water and myprotein blender bottle
Great product for the price although is too soon to state its effectiveness. It doesn't mix as well as other products but it's much better than others I have tried. Tastes great so overall pretty good =) Goes Well With:Water, soya milk
Mixes best I've tried! Taste is decent as well, do feel a difference taking it going to bed wake up less hungry and I find I sleep better! I use it as a morning shake as I feel it keeps me going while on move, have noticed gains while taking feel a lot more defined and stronger but that could be new regime still early days!Goes Well With:Troubles pro, creatine ethyl ester CLA
The greatest tasting bed time casein I've tasted smooth creamy and delicious . Easy to mix and drink and really effective
Has a grainy like texture which is hard to swallow at first, but you'll adapt to it. Recommend the chocolate flavour.Goes Well With:water
lovely taste and mixes well with other products --- very good general protein baseGoes Well With:lovely taste and goes well with essential amino acids
I have been waiting a long time for MP to do casien in addition to or instead of inferior milk protein. This product does the job and is cheaper than any branded casein product on the market. My only quibble and reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that the flavour (choc) is not great (dont get me wrong its not terrible!), and that the consistancy is very fluffy/chalky (which means its messy!) - much like milk protein is. I would give this five stars if MP considered instantising akin to the ON product and therefore resducing the chalkyness and tweaking the chocolate flavour to make it a little stronger. I don't understand why you would mix this with milk as others in reviews are as it defeats the point of having a casein powder. You could just mix bog standard whey concentrate with milk instead which is cheaper. This should be mixed with water or egg whites etc and my review is based on this.Goes Well With:any other types of protein to create a tapered release
Great product I got last month! The vanilla tastes amazing with milk before bed and leaves me feeling satisfied. Mixed with whey after workouts also and have been impressed with results!Goes Well With:Milk, true whey
Vanilla tastes excellent, easy to mix and doesn't make you feel bloated, would recommend to everyone 👍
Great product. Mixes well, excellent value for money compared to what's on the market. My number one protein supplement site. Super quick delivery, and very reliable. I could only give taste a low score of two as I purchased the unflavoured but when mixed with other flavoured protein it tastes great.Goes Well With:Bananas
Tried the strawberry flavour, was very sweet but not enough to put me off buying it. Used 30g with 300ml of water about an hour before bed. Mixed well, no grit or grain left behind and it frothed up well like a thick milkshake. Not been using it long enough to measure the effects, but I will be buying again when my current bag runs out.Goes Well With:Water
Chocolate doesn't taste very nice or like chocolate, doesn't mix well like other myprotein proteins
Great tasting pre bed protein great for making protein fluff
Great taste, mixes really well and is going to be a permanent addition to my supplements regime. Awesome product.
I have recently ordered a Micellar Casein Strawberry flavour powder, I have to admit tastes a bit like a washing up liquid,but managed to drink it with a bit of mixture of almond oil, lemon juice and peanut butter,which gives a fantastic flavour to it. Goes Well With:Almond oil and peanut butter and a bit of lemon juice
One of the best caseins that I've tried! the delivery was really fast and the product is just amazing. Easy to store and easy to use with a good flavour! Goes Well With:Fat free Chocolate
I love this stuff, very good to mix with Cottage cheese, some egg whites to create a nice thick bed time souffle snack. Top with Almond butter too. Goes Well With:Almond butter, eqq whites
Micellar Casein mixes adequately when using 250ml milk per scoop and mixes with a blender. Taste good and only the last mouthful or 2 powdery but that is the same with any Casein. Price is good compared to others, I've only been using it a week but I don't see why it won't be effective used before bed!Goes Well With:Milk, Ice
