Product Overview

gold standard 100% casein

Isolate proteins are desirable immediately before and after exercise to support muscle growth and maintenance, however casein proteins may be more beneficial at other times – including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food.

Casein proteins are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Casein is best utilized before bedtime to help maintain muscle mass while your body is in a fasted state. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, ON has created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.

What is micellar casein?

Micellar Casein is one of the highest quality forms of casein. It is separated from milk through an ultrafiltration process. One of Micellar Casein’s unusual properties is its ability to gel during digestion.

To anyone who is doing research, Casein is a marketing ploy. It is a joke of a product. Protein synthesis does not activate until a minimum of 12 grams of protein are in your body. Casein releases less than 6 grams per hour. Your body does not even enter protein synthesis using this product. It is quite literrally empty calories that will just turn to fat. This product is designed only for marketing. Do not become a sucker to the snake oil that is Casein.

Great product, for someone that is very limited on time in the day-to-day basis. Also perfectly for periods of fasting and/or right before sleep. Maybe a different flavor next time

Fast shippingand great customer service. Mixed the banana cream protein with greek yogurt and water and the flavor is close to that of a real banana smoothie. I'm a fan!

Straight 10 for me, only tried chocolate supreme and love the taste. Mixes great and tastes like cake mix when I drink it with the egg whites. Great way to get in some slow digesting protein.

Love the quality of ingredients in this casein! I especially like that they do not use sucralose. Flavor is great, but I would say an 8/10 in that area! I eat this as chocolate pudding every night before bed as I'm in contest prep right now. I do think it has helped me maintain as much muscle as I can while dieting down!

Casein is a tough protein to drink, it doesn't mix well and it is really thick. Nothing different with this product, hard to mix with bottle blender and very thick to drink. Flavor is just okay, I wish they could make it better.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Casein:

Gold Standard 100% Casein™ is instantised for easy mixing. Simply add 1 rounded scoop (32 g) to 300 ml (10 oz) of cold water and blend, shake or stir until powder is completely dissolved. TIP: You can adjust flavour by using more or less water.

BLENDER: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.

SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients.

STACK YOUR SHAKE: By adding supplements like Micronized Creatine, Glutamine, Taurine, and/or INSTANTIZED BCAA powders, you can make Gold Standard 100% Casein™ an even more powerful muscle building food supplement.

SPOON STIRRED: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
