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.
Casein is best enjoyed in the evening to contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. To reap the benefits of this product we recommend adding 1 1/4 large scoops (30g) to 200-300ml 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.

Wonderfully priced casein that mixes well. The price beats my previous US supplier hands down in terms of shipping and product cost. The product itself has been really effective in recovery and muscle growth and i am speaking as a heavy user, around 3-4 scoops of casein per day. I have tried all kinds of brand including the Tub ones from big companies in the US but they don't compare in digestibility an effectiveness. There are 3 natural flavors that i have downed 5kg of each flavour so far. I'll list them briefly regarding taste and mix-ability. Vanilla- Mixes really well with water, almost no foam and a pleasant smell Banana-Mixes well with water, however it foams up quite abit and can be a little hard to drink at the end. Pleasant smell too. Chocolate- mixes well with water, no foam and has a smell that is not so pleasant. Taste wise for these 3 flavours are excellent. For the reasons above i give 4 stars. MP needs to provide an all natural flavour and sweetening using stevia to sweetened to earn the last star. It's the way to go forward, MP please do it like the impact whey series. If you find this helpful like this review and bump it to the top so that others will be able to read it .:)Goes Well With:water and whey
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.
I love to eat my protein sources and have been making casein cookie dough with the unflavoured product and flavdrops, it's delicious and a great way to get your protein in and a dessert that requires no cooking or time. Recipe below if you want to try it, you won't be disappointed: 50g unflavoured casein 15g nut butter of choice 15g cookie butter (if I don't have any I double up the nut butter) 50ml almond milk MP Flavdrops (vanilla) add to taste Add a little of the almond milk at a time as you want the consistency to be that of cookie dough and mix it thoroughly . If I have some fats and carbs left for the day il throw in some chocolate chips. If you like you like it thicker try chilling in the fridge for a while. Goes Well With:See recipe!!!
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 been using Myprotein whey supplements for a few years now (ISO PRO 97 & Impact whey) and have found both to be effective e.g. they mix well, taste just fine and have proven to be an effective supplement. Up until 8 months ago I would take one of the above immediately after training to aid recovery and assist development of muscle tissue after training, however after reading articles on the best time of day and type of supplements to take I started taking a whey supplement prior to training. As I train first thing in the morning I find this convenient and have definitely noticed improvements in training performance and overall gains in muscle development. I admit the gains are not ground braking, but they exist and are noticeable. So I got to thinking and decided I would start experimenting by taking a Casen protein in the evening, and monitor the results and effects. First off this has certainly helped me resisting from snacking on unhealthy items such as biscuits and cakes etc in the evening, as I eat quite clean during the day and do get the cravings for a sweet snack in the evenings when I know the wife has them hidden in the kitchen cupboard. Secondly I have definitely noticed a difference in the recovery from hard sessions, previously I would be sore (DOMS) for a few days after a particularly tough workout, whereas now I wouldn’t say I was as fresh as a daisy the morning after, however I am able to commit to another good session the following day. OK, now the taste test, I choose chocolate, the taste is fine however does leave a little powdery after tang, but I don’t find this to bad at all as I am usually brushing my teeth and having a glass of water soon afterwards before hitting the sack. The powder mixes fine (I use skimmed milk) and as long as you use a shaker and spend 20 seconds of vigorous agitation leaves no lumps or residue in the shaker. Overall a good supplement that is steadily helping me reach my goals without braking the bank or making me chug down foul tasting concoctions that make me wince and give nightmares. Goes Well With:Hard training and clean diet
I give this product 5/5 on everything. Firstly, it works. I noticed muscle gain and fat loss since I started using it daily before sleep. I wake up feeling really well even after a hard workout the day before. Secondly it mixes really well with milk and tastes good (I use unflavoured). If you have problems with lumps in your shake try this: using a fork mix the powder with a small amount of milk first to create a thick batter. Once you got that smooth, add more milk and keep stirring. Add some flavoured yogurt or milk if you like. Hope this helpsGoes Well With:Whey protein Magnesium and zinc
After doing a lot of research into this product and protein in general, I read an article saying to mix Casein with Whey post workout for maximum benefits. I swear by it now. You get the initial protein hit from the Whey and then this product slowly drip feeds your muscles for up to 8 hours after your workout ensuring you get the most from your workout both with size and strength. When mixing it does tend to froth up a bit but if you leave it to settle for a few minutes, it's fine. Really helps to stop the DOMS (Delayed onset of muscle soreness) meaning you can train again sooner.Goes Well With:Impact Whey and BCAA powder
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).
Tastes really good but it's a mess to use, like powdered snow seems to go everywhere don't wear black tee when mixing. Would recommend getting a tub to put it in as well. Chalky mix but it's favour is really good and for a finish end up eating the foam. Stuffed after it so works well. Good product got banana favour tastes good. Goes Well With:Water and pour into tub to avoid consent spilling/powder everywhere
I fancied increasing my daily protein intake with a slow-release drink to consume before bed, allowing a drip-feed into my system while I slept overnight. After a bit of online research, this seemed like a suitable product, and I placed an order for the banana flavour, as I'm currently using the Optimum Nutrition milk chocolate for my pre- and post-workout shake, and too much chocolate can be a flavour contrast and a bit of an overload for your taste buds. Firstly - be warned! This mixture is EXCEPTIONALLY light... It's almost like talcum powder. It's bright white, and no matter how gently you open the bag, a cloud of the stuff *always* puffs out and settles. If you're wearing black clothes, they'll need to go in the wash to get the stuff out, as it doesn't just brush off. My work uniform is black, so I always make sure I'm changed for bed before preparing the shake. The flavour is great - again, mildly synthetic, but what the heck do you expect? It tastes like banana, and I'm quite happy with that. I use a cheap smoothie maker to mix it up, and having read other reviews, I concur that the texture of the drink is strange - although it's a liquid, it has quite a "chalky" undertone. However, it mixes well, it tastes good, and it does exactly what it says. If you're picky about flavours or textures, then you probably shouldn't be shopping for protein-based products. MP do an excellent job of producing fine products, and ultimately, this is no different. Overall, I'd recommend this product for the price and service you get from My Protein. The only downside is the actual powder being so light - I would much rather have it supplied in a tub than a bag, as that would reduce the amount that's carried in the air.Goes Well With:Sleep.
After battling with the horrible foam this product creates, I tried mixing it with a scoop of whey, and hey presto, NO MORE FOAM!!!Goes Well With:Whey and water
Really good protein keeps me going through the night
This is a great tasting casein powder, I've tried the chocolate and banana and they both taste good. The chocolate is great for someone with a sweet tooth and gives me a choc fix! Goes really well with porridge in the mornings tooGoes Well With:Oats
Doesn't mix well and the unflavoured is pretty disgusting. Very chalky consistency. Not too bad if you add flavouring to it though, I thought it would be like the Whey Protein which is amazing. I only use this product just before bed so as long as I can drinking I don't really care. If you are going to buy unflavoured then some flavour drops are a must in my opinion. Goes Well With:Flavouring.
Great stuff, keeps hunger at bay during the night and mixes really well. Only downside was unflavoured tastes awful.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.
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
This slow release protein powder is a staple in my diet. It mixes well and yes its powdery but all caseins are! Strawberry flavour is what i have purchased. For better taste I would recommend mixing it in a shaker and leaving it in the fridge for two hours before consumption. It tastes amazing once chilled. I mix mine with half milk and half water. It's a shame they don't do banana flavour anymore as I wanted to try. Nonetheless its an excellent productGoes Well With:Water, milk, almond milk
Good taste, mixes well and price is fab
Vanilla taste is good though mixability is as usual with most casein, leaves some clumps. Bought a few different "safe" flavors like Choco and vanilla to change flavors so I don't get sick of the taste. Staying in Singapore so it's great to get affordable and good protein from Myprotein but one major complain is the torn package when received. Local post company even have to repackage the torn box so that they can complete the sending. 2 of 7 bags actually were so crumpled that they lose the air sealed in and 1 bag had a little tear with the powder coming out through a small hole so have to put the whole 2.5kg pack into an old protein tub.
Ordered both chocolate and vanilla, both lovely and not too sweet. I mix the casein with a little water to make it into yogurt like consistency. It's a perfect evening/before bed treat. The chocolate one differs from the natural chocolate flavor quite a bit. I prefer the natural chocolate flavor but for some reason it's not offered anymore. It definitely does its job, I don't feel any hunger and falling asleep pretty satisfied. Goes Well With:Water
The powder it's self is very dense, and clings onto everything. Is a bit of a chore to shake up as it requires more time than your normal impact whey, but I guess you get extra gains from shaking more, right? I found the chocolate flavour by far the nicest, vanilla has a strange texture which lets down the flavour! Overall a good product.
casein-vanilla flavour,very tasty esp when made on milk,its like a custard...yum!will be buying again.
Taste nice.cheap for that qualityGoes Well With:No fat milk
Perfect product to take before bed as it is a slow digesting form of protein. Some people do aslo add in throughout the day, but I recommend before bed as it can give a feeling of bloating throughout the day.Goes Well With:water
Can't beat my protein for casein, some of the best stuff I've tried. I have 1 scoop before bed with water, mixes well and taste better than most other casein products on the market. Never unhappy with the quality of products from my protein and wouldn't use any other company!Goes Well With:Water
Good product, prompt delivery, doesn't mix as well as whey protein, but not an issue, just used a hand blender to make a decent shake.Goes Well With:Whey protein chocolate peanut butter
After very heavy workouts I can depend on Micellar to have a peaceful night's sleep. Other proteins do not have that slow release effect and when I awake I am raring to go to have another workout.Guys after training for so many years this is the product. So don't look further for another- Great stuff and will be ordering more as soon as I run out. Chocolate flavour is great!!!Goes Well With: Micellar is sometimes added to half milk and water with a banana and some cashew nuts in my blender and this further boosts the nutritious value of my number uno drink!
Decent protein, can't say much about effectiveness as of yet, only been using a short period of time. Flavour is ok, mixing isn't the best but has everything I'm looking for in nutrition wise for a pre bed shake. Goes Well With:Water, oats, milk
Awesome and great value for money. Decided to go unflavoured, and still tastes great with milk.Goes Well With:Small amount of nesquik/hot chocolate powder
Excellent protein powder, mixes very good and tastes great been using it before bed and sometimes in the morning. I'm not waking up hungry and the slow release seems to be working. Will be buying more soon. Vanilla is the best so far.Goes Well With:Mixes well with bcaa.s
After using this product for many months I can honestly say the product really delivers. I usually take approx 30 mins before I go to sleep and wake up without the usual energy deficiency you would get from allowing your body to fast though through the night. It's a fantastic product to sustain muscle growth throughout the night on training and non training days. As for the shakes flavour I personally have only bought the banana 🍌 which is very tasty and would recommend. Mixes great with water (not tried with milk) and the consistency is great. I would however say give it a good shake and leave for 10 mins to get the perfect blend. Overall great product for MP👍
Its ok, but taste can be better
Really good and mixes well with other powders! Very very fine so be careful not so spill as it goes everywhere
Great Product, notice the difference when taken the night before hitting the gym first thing.
Very bitty and horrible after taste to the vanilla. And for god sake don't mix it and out it in the fridge for half an hour it goes like syrup. Goes Well With:Nothing at all
Too be honest it's my first time having casein but it works I don't feel so angry in morning. I use it at night vanilla flavour is nice taste
Having struggled for months in the morning to get energy and to feel even slightly normal, I was advised to start using casein before bed to help gain a slow release throughout the night and help me get going in the mornings. Since taking this I am up straight away when my alarm goes not hitting the dreaded snooze button and find myself feeling energised ready for the day. Working in the catering industry and having early breakfast shifts this has helped give me a boost starting work and also makes the thought of a morning workout much more appealing. Only drawback is the slight chalky texture on the first gulp but apart from that great taste and great product. Goes Well With:Water
Great tasting protein. I have had the vanilla and the chocolate flavour and both taste great. I mix it with 300ml of skimmed milk before I go to bed. As nice as it tastes it can be difficult to drink just due to the face it's so thick!Goes Well With:300ml skimmed Milk
One of the best shakes I've tried in the past 3 years. Mix ability, flavour, efficiency, in total a great product. Never miss a casein shake before going to sleep. Usually 2.5-3 scoops to sleep through and waking up without starving. Mixing it with water. Goes Well With:Green Veg Mix
I'm 100% satisfied with the product. Quality protein for good price and excellent taste.
I really like the chocolate flavor. I mix it with little bit of water so it feels like a treat rather than a drink. I like the texture, can't describe it really but it feels pleasant on my tongue. It's really filling and stops the sweet tooth craving. I don't find the flavor to be too sweet or chemically tasting. Perfect! Will try other flavors as well.Goes Well With:Water, milk,
I am really glad I bought this. I see that it really helps me. The unflavored version is really ok to drink only if you put enough water (If you don't put enough it is really hard alone, I use FlavDrops whenever I put 100-200ml and it tastes fine with it). I recommend it to any one :)Goes Well With:FlavDrops Impact Whey Total Protein.
A solid non-workout day source of protein. Had the natural chocolate (tastes great) and natural banana (tastes fine but isn't banana). Mixes reasonably well and you can control the thickness depending on the amount of water you put in easily. The bag I got it in is a bit flimsy and the seal can break easily. One issue I had with the powder is how fine it is that the slightest movement can send it everywhere and then its chore having to keep cleaning up but that is minor. Would recommend.Goes Well With:Glutamine
Love this protein shake! I usually mix 1 scoop with the impact diet whey with coconut milk in the morning (makes it nice and thick!) and have the same again at night before bed. Great way to have a lot of protein release over a nice long period.Goes Well With:impact diet whey and rice/coconut milk
