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 30g, shake and consume. Use just before bedtime for optimum results, but can also be taken between meals or 2-3 times a day.

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 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 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!!!
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).
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
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
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
I have been using this for almost a year and I have gained about 10kg although I cant say whether it was to do with my drastic diet change and training or whether it really did contribute to my gains, but I do feel personally that this does help me meet my daily protein requirements. My major problem is that its really hard to blend. Im shaking it for ages and I am left with a grainy texture and a very thick foam which is very difficult to swallow. I have to then add more water and shake again which is really annoying. I do find that I sometimes cant be bothered and end up throwing the foam away which would be 1/6th of the shake. I have tried it with milk and it does blend a little better than water but you are still faced with a slightly less grainy texture and the foam and it does become very filling. It may work better if you use a blender but I dont have the patience for that. Therefore although it may be cheaper I am considering purchasing this product from ON next time as it doesnt really seem cost effective to me at present. Goes Well With:Water, milk possibly a blender
I've got the chocolate flavour and it just tastes too powdery, I've tried adding more and less water and it still tastes poor. It's drinkable but you have to down it. Also the chocolate flavouring is too weak. Next time I order I'm going to buy unflavoured and add loads of water to try and make it thinner then add loads of black current or something. Goes Well With:N/a
Product is very chalky and can end up everywhere! But strawberry taste is good, and seeing results. Great for a bedtime shakeGoes Well With:Skimmed milk, omega 3 capsules
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.
I have the unflavoured one to reduce sugar intake before bed but I have to have it with milk, and I must say I like the froth on it. For those who say it doesn't mix well maybe you need to improve your shaking as I get a smooth texture every time but you must put the liquid in first. I've also used it to make a pancake mix with some egg whites and a banana in the morning as it makes the mix thicker. Very good productGoes Well With:Milk.
I recently purchased this as I've started weightlifting. I love the product it's brilliant if you have a sweet tooth at night and fills you up!! I'm starting to Also notice a slight body image change which I'm really happy with! Only thing I'd say it doesn't mix really well, can be quite lumpy but everything else is great !!Goes Well With:Water, milk, or and egg to make a protein pancake
Good product to take at night for slow release of protein. Natural vanilla a good flavour
Love the chocolate casein, great with a banana and ice in the nutria bullet yum Goes Well With:Anything but banana is great or cashew butter
Well what can I say. I've used MyProtein milk protein smooth for a long time but could never get used to the chalky texture it had. I Thought for the couple of extra £'s why not try the micellar-casein all I can say is WOW! the texture is great the taste is amazing and the protein % is much higher which is even more of a bonus! Will be buying again and again!! Goes Well With:Water just before bed But can be used any time of the day
texture when mixed is less smooth than whey isolate and not as pleasant. Not sure it is worth using instead of isolate, even if it is slower release of proteinGoes Well With:porridge oats
First time using this product i found it works great as pre sleep shake. I feel much fuller after a long sleep. Mixes great but froths quite a lot so best to shake and leave standing for 5-10mins before consuming. Strawberry flavour tastes good.
Very good protein shake for those late night gains. Tastes really good, highly effective and mixes really easily though it is a bit "gritty" for lack of a better term, not a problem for me though.Goes Well With:Milk
I've tried many protein shakes and usually order whey impact from this site. Chocolate is the flavor!! But the micellar casein chocolate is rich and very satisfying. I enjoy the whey protein, but it can be a bit too 'whey' at times. Micellar casein chocolate has a completely different taste and is my new favorite shake! ***** Will be ordering more.
Got two bags of this for a great price, one natural chocolate and one natural vanilla. Myprotein chocolate is my favourite chicolate out of all online suppliers ive used, it taste much more like milk chocolate which I like. I havent tried vanilla yet but looking forward to.Goes Well With:Milk, peanut butter
Very good product when you get hungry late at night.
Great tasting pre bed protein which has certainly helped my current development. Mixes ok, but the taste makes it worth it. Have certainly noticed an improvement in my performance and development since I started using this proteinGoes Well With:Colostrum
Despite casein being extremely effective, the texture and taste of the Unflavoured was disgusting. Even when mixed with milk and a lot of Myprotein's Flavour drops i could not stomach it. BUY THE FLAVOURED CASEIN
Natural chocolate taste is good but avoid natural vanilla. It leaves very strange after taste.Goes Well With:Water
Excellent Mixes well, tastes good. I use it pre, and post workout shakes, mixed with Whey, and as a bedtime shake on its own. Goes Well With:True Whey
I haven't rated the taste as I have mine mixed with impact whey protein which has flavoring in it anyway, handy for before bed, goof alternative to cottage cheese,Goes Well With:Flavored impact whey protein
Surprisingly really light and fluffy in texture, although I have no other casein to compare to as this is my first experience with using casein. I had heard in the past that casein was disgusting so was naturally dubious but pleasantly surprised. Mixes well and is completely drinkable.. Definitely beats eating cottage cheese before bed!Goes Well With:I use un-sweetened almond milk to make mine and every few nights I mix it all up in my nutribullet with a few almonds and blueberries to keep it interesting.
I have been taking this for over 4 weeks now. Having used it with a strict training routine and a good diet, this protein has lived up to its standards. A great product for extra protein burst from a great supplier. Will definitely buy again.Goes Well With:Milk or water.
This product is highly recommended! Ticks all the right boxes, taste is fantastic (natural Vanilla), mixes easily with either milk or water and can be taken any time of the day! While I have only been using a couple of weeks, mostly before bed or between meals to keep protein levels up, I genuinely feel better for taking it. Mainly feeling less muscle soreness etc. For the price, nothing else can touch this.Goes Well With:Milk.
I mix mine with skimmed milk for a before bed shake. So nice to know I'm not going to wake up in the middle of the night with my tummy growling. Another must have for anyone looking to gain muscle.
Flavour and texture were so good, can't wait to order again.
Great tasting, I had the vanilla. Mixes easily with milk in the shaker. The following day after a 63 mile mountainous cycle ride had very little/few aches. Would recommend Goes Well With:Milk
The chocolate flavour is absolutely horrible. I had to throw my newly purchased protein away...As for the texture it is very chalky. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking to make protein fluff or pudding.
I got the vanilla flavoured casein, my package arrived so quickly I honestly didn't expect it to arrive so soon! I've bought unflavoured and chocopeanut whey in the past but I found casein far more versatile for cooking with. I've made casein fluff, beltsander brownies/blondies, pancakes. eaten it as a batter with water/milk, made lighter batters with more water to powder for a pancake syrup... Mixed it with cocoa powder. It's just the perfect sweetness and just works fab to add protein to recipes and being plain vanilla, so easy to alter the flavour as I want.Obviously for most it is used to supplement workouts but I just try to find low carb alternatives so I have no idea how good it is for those lifting etc. I can;t recommend this product enough! Goes Well With:Pancakes, frozen fruit, water, milk, everything. May there be vanilla casein everywhere, nommmm!
Took some getting used to as I'd only used whey before, but after a few shakes I started to like it, can really feel the difference in how it works. Definitely would recommend! Goes Well With:Water Natural yogurt and milk
Chocolate flavour is pretty awesome. Stir it into low fat natural yoghurt or fromage frais for a protein-packed pudding! Only downside is it does seem to make me inordinately thirsty.Goes Well With:Yoghurt
Tastes great. Mixes well. Thick and smooth.
I recently bulk purchased all my protein and decided to add casein in to my protein supplement schedule in the evenings to aid recovery and fullness allowing me to train harder in the mornings (early session starting at 6-mostly fasted cardio) whilst being on a low carb diet! This product as others have said is a little chalky, however, I have developed the best way to consume it and that is through puddings!! I On to the best way to consume! This casein is incredibly thick so I blend it with a banana or 32g peanut butter (100%peanut natural) and 150ml or soya (or milk) place in the fridge over night for a lovely thick moose or freeze for 1.5-2h for thick Ice cream texture- this takes away all the chalky texture and makes me so happy I never have any sweet cravings anymore whilst still maximising gains and recovery! My protein, as always, your product cannot be faulted on taste, and quality!!Goes Well With:Milk, peanut butter banana
Great slow digesting protein i have the vanilla flavor as can add with anything like oats or a whey protein post workout and on its own before bed. tastes fine has different texture to other proteins as its casein but mixes well cant go wrong for the price.Goes Well With:oats and other proteins or on its own with water before bed
Only purchased recently so hard to give a good review on effectiveness. once again tasts is very good which i have found with the more common flavours at MP. Ideal protein supplement to take before bedtime or during slow release periods where you may not eat for some time as opposed to whey.Goes Well With:I find the flavour and texture is richer with milk although fine water too.
I really loved the product. At first the texture seemed funny, like grainy. However,that's what casein is. It's suitable for the halal/kosher diet from my observations. I would also recommend it to the people who fast during the month Ramadan as it keeps you full long enough (8 hours at least). Goes Well With:The unflavoured version goes awesome with the flavored milk!
