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 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 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 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
Great taste, still unsure on the results as only had it a couple of weeks. Only down size is high sugar content.
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
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).
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
Well yes the taste is great... but lets face it, that's not a major concern. The main issue is if it is actually effective? Well i take Whey Protein morning and post workout. I then take Casein, a slow release protein, right before bed. I will be honest... my recovery time after a workout is reduced. I wake up in the morning without all the aches from the previous days workout and i am able to train again much quicker than before. In addition, having the Casein at night has actually helped my sleep. I don't get any of the usual waking up hungry or dehydrated as I used to. And a restful, decent nights sleep is another recovery and builder for anyone who trains. I'm not saying the protein is any better than other proteins out there on the market. However: The price is reasonable The taste is great It mixes well It works So why should i change to another brand...... Hope this helps anyone considering buying Whey or Casein protein.
Love this product for in between meals, the perfect supplement to get you through the day
The taste of the "chocolate" with just water is horrible, and it mixes horribly with a lot of foam. I originally bought the other chocolate flavour they offered, but they seem to have taken it down; a let down. But overall it does what it says; gives protein release during sleep, as that is what micellar casein does. I can't say whether or not it works, as i feel it doesn't do a whole lot, and it hasn't exactly worked miracles. I'm having other protein and mass gainers during day and am eating in excess of 4000kcal per day, training with intensity and getting plenty of sleep. I've gained mass perfectly fine without it, and i wouldn't say that you need this what so ever unless you're planning on going into a very, very long deep sleep. Anyone who sleeps normally is fine with eating a slow releasing protein source, or even this, as their last meal.Goes Well With:Whey protein and Milk
Love this before bed mixed with natural yoghurt keeps me full and I don't wake up hungry :)Goes Well With:Natural yoghurt
Good quality, nice taste, not too sweet...mixes well..good priceGoes Well With:Milk or water but nicer with milk
Couldn't believe how tasty the strawberry flavour is. I began wanting to drink it as a snack. Very filling also. Although by its very nature casein has a powdery texture no matter how much you mix it which some may find off puttingGoes Well With:I just mix it with water, dose not go well in a smoothie
Really excellent to have an unflavored option: nothing added, just protein. The unflavored variety just tastes fairly creamy, as casein is a whole (for practical purposes unprocessed) protein, you don't have the chalky flavor that whey proteins try and cover up. Great product at good value.
Amazing taste, does what it says, i mix it with water but man does it foam up, i end up drinking it then adding more water and necking it straight from the shaker because the foam wont come out the spout, bit of a pain if i was out but straight before bed its not a problem as im indoors.... Not tried other flavour but this is good even with just water mixGoes Well With:H2O
Love this product the texture is fantastic & goes down well,just what you need before bed Goes Well With:Always mix mine with 300ml soya milk the taste is fantastic nice thick & creamy
very good and with low price compared to other casein productsGoes Well With:water, milk
I noticed improved sleep using this casein as often you still feel fairly pumped after a workout that ends late going in to bedtime, this does the trick to get the rest needed. I'm not a body builder, just an average guy working hard for the last 9-10 months getting lean and defined with a very hectic work life schedule, for me this has been a great way to get that extra protein fix at the end of the day to keep my progress going. Has a very slight grainy texture as does not mix great, but still good quality.Goes Well With:Semi skimmed milk and bcaa+
Great product, filling food source for bedtime and a great price! Goes Well With:Milk
Overall pretty good casein, a bit of foam when shaking which is sometimes hard to drink.Goes Well With:milk
First time I have ordered from My Protein and I have to say I was not disappointed. Product mixes and tastes great unlike other more expensive brands which in some cases I have found to sweet and does exactly what it says on the tin (bag). I use a Vortex mixer and this mixed to a perfect liquid with none of the lumps or powdery residue I have had before with other products. Would definitely recommend both the product and the brand. Goes Well With:Impact whey isolate Impact whey protein BCAA plus
This slow release protein is ideal for the evening time. It tastes great and mixes with both milk and water. It does need resting for 30secs-1min to let the foam go down but it is so worth the wait! Awesome product!
Really nice taste, I honestly look forward to it before bed time it's that good, much better with milk then with water, but that's obvious, great shake and AIDS recovery. Great stuff myprotien. 👍Goes Well With:Milk or water
Very noticeable gains with this Easier for me to digest than whey protein + ideal before bed and on rest days I will defo be using this for a while .Goes Well With:Milk or water
I bought this as a protein hit before bed, when you mix it with water is goes a little foamy on top but it's still drinkable. I'd recommend mixing it with milk it goes really thick almost like a milk shake and tastes much better, there's also a decent amount of slow release protein for little extra calories Goes Well With:Mixes well with milk, use with CLA
I got the chocolate flavour it tastes really nice and mixes well can't fault it in any way
I found this mixes much better than other casein powders ive tried, there are no clumps but the texture is a little gritty. Taste isnt very strong (chocolate) but its nice.Goes Well With:Water, creatine
Vanilla Micellar Caesin - this is the worst tasting protein i've ever had!!! Only had one scoop, mixed it with water and it just tasted so chalky!!! Eurghhh
Excellent addition to the stack. Giving my body slow release protein so my muscles arnt starved over night, I seem to be coming on really well with the products from myprotien. Keep up the hard work guys.Goes Well With:Water or milk
Great product. Bought chocolate flavour, mixes very well with water and tastes amazing. Take half hour before bed and helps reduce fatigue for next days training
Really great product, fills me up before bed and helps me recover after a hard workout that evening! Highly recommend.Goes Well With:Just on its own
Finer powder than whey which mixes better & not as lumpy as some whey powders, vanilla tastes good- a little powdery but overall not bad at all. Goes Well With:Milk or water
Great taste, very easy to mix no lumps etc. Ideal for on a night before bed due to its slow release of protein and definitely helped me increase my protein intake as part of a stable diet to fit busy lifestyle Goes Well With:Water is best and sometimes a teaspoon of manuka Honey
It's quite good. I am very happy with the purchase. Thanks
I think it's a great product use this every day at night with out fail. Love all my protein products would love to be an ambassitor for them or a sponsord athlete. Goes Well With:Milk or Greek yoghurt
