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.

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).
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).
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.
Great taste, easy to drink when you get to the shake, does not mix well, foams a lot when shaken and i feel you may lose some of the protein content because of that. not sure i'd buy it again for that reason.
Glad it doesn't taste too artificial. Just the right amount banana taste so it doesn't overpower. Blends and shakes well
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).
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
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
Usually love my proteins products and I am a big fan of them however I got bought this and had good expectations for it however after it's been shaken most of it turns into foam and is disgusting to try drink but the actual flavour is good I got chocolate Goes Well With:Nothing just foams
Very pleased with the taste and consistency of the mixes. I prefer to use a hand blender as this gets the most air into the shake. After a few days I got to realy love the taste. I made the right decision.Goes Well With:Made from water
Does what it says on the bag..mixes well and tastes good..delivery was first class.
The taste is okay, yes, but if you leave this in your shaker for too long it will dry up and be completely unsoluable what so ever. It mixes great with whey though. This is for the record a really thick mass. :)Goes Well With:Milk!!!
I bought this for my wife to have at breakfast as she is trying to lose a bit of weight. She has an extremely busy job and tends to snack rather than eat well balanced meals. She has now has this in a morning as a supplement to her breakfast and it helps her not feel hungry until lunch (when she would preveously snack) She also uses it before bed when exercising late to help muscle repair overnight. (I know there are better products for this job but she's not a big supplement believer...yet!) Overall its a good product. She mixes it with a little milk and mainly water. The taste is pretty good (natural banana) but it does tend to get rather frothy when mixed in a shaker. We've found the best way is to mix it and drink immediately, don't give it a chance to settle! The texture is a bit chalky but I think most casein tastes this way.Goes Well With:30% Milk to 70% Water.
Mixes really easy in one of the MyProtein shakers. I had the strawberry flavour, is easy to drink and tastes good too.
Mixes well with other powders. I go for the unflavored version to mix with double choc diet impack whey which Mixes well. can't ask for a better product.Goes Well With:Diet whey
I take it before I sleep and wake up not feeling hungry which is good, gives slow and steady release to your muscle Only problem with it is that it doesn't mix very well, tends to foam up when shaken and you need to wait a little while till the foam dies down Other than that it's goodGoes Well With:Cottage cheese
Superb quality, mixes fast with no lumps. Tastes great in strawberry with either milk or water. Great price and what a fast delivery. No messing! Just need to train hard now lolGoes Well With:In between meals or before bed
One coup of miccelar casein in the morgning and one before the bed time. You cant miss with that.
Tried the vanilla but much prefer chocolate tastes just like hot chocolate. Great product
Great value miscellar casein. I have it as a desert in the evening mixed with skimmed milk. It certainly satisfies my sweet tooth and sets me up for an early morning workout.Goes Well With:Milk
I've used multiple dufferent brands of casein over the years and they all have one thing in common - chalky taste. This is way better than the rest in that respect. Gives a slow steady release of protein which I like at bedtime. Good quality protein at an excellent price point.
this is a excellent product and important to take before bedtime for people who want to preserve muscle mass! Great taste and good price!
I love this product - great taste and texture. if you are sick of shakes I would suggest adding 1 x egg white to 25g and mixing up to make an almost 'Angel Delight' mixture. Either that or add to 25g of oats with a bit of milk and stick in the fridge. They make great desserts!!
I've been taking this for around 2 months now and its brilliant just before bed due to its slow release which helps the muscles grow nicely whilst resting. This has become a staple in my supplement cupboard now.
Quality protein, mixes really well. Would recommended.
Very good. Tasty. Does what it says.
Tastes great and does the job well. I recommend this.
Taste great and very effective especially taking it before bed keeps to fuel the body with much needed proteins
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.
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 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
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 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
