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.

BEYOND THE BASICS:

  • Best-Selling Micellar Casein
  • 75% Protein by Weight (24G of Protein per 32G Serving Size)
  • 24 Grams of Slow-Digesting Micellar Casein per Serving
  • Over 5 Grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) per Serving
  • Nearly 5 Grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Every Scoop
  • Very Low Levels of Fat, Sugar & 3.5 Grams of Carbohydrates per Serving
  • Ideal for Use Between Meals and Before Bed

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.

This was not supremely mixable. Using a shaker bottle, I would always have a sizable clump of casein at the base of the nozzle. It was an ok product but the chocolate flavor was very fake tasting

I usually order Muscle Pharm Casein, because its low sugar and sodium and it provides 28 grams of protein, but its on backorder, so I ended ordering this as a replacement. It tastes ok, but you can really taste the sodium and sugar in it the product, and it makes me really appreciate the pharms product. Ill most likely go back once theres a supply. I'm sure theres some benefit of this protein, but compared to others, I'm not impressed. Don't understand the need for added sugar and sodium.

Just started using the casein at night and I am impressed. No hunger before bedtime for me and it seems to be working great. Just ordered a bigger size the other day.

I get best results with water in a shaker and add milk after it's dissolved. Great taste and easy to digest even when drinking it right before bed. If you haven't tried casein for an overnight protein boost, try this one.

Tastes awesome with whatever you mix, however the issue is if you mix it with water, clumps usually are created causing a very displeasing shake (consistency wise). I've heard ways that people try to counter act this but have yet to find a stable solution

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Casein:

Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to a shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Casein™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop.

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. TIP: Try using Gold Standard 100% Casein™ with proteins like Gold Standard 100% Whey™ or Pro Complex® at different times for maximum effectiveness. Take Gold Standard 100% Casein™ immediately before bed and in between meals when supplementing your protein is desired. Drink Gold Standard 100% Whey™ or Pro Complex® proteins before and immediately after workouts for a good source of amino acids.

Warnings: DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED DAILY DOSE. THOSE WHO ARE PREGNANT, NURSING OR TAKING MEDICATION ARE ADVISED TO CONSULT A PHYSICIAN BEFORE USE. DO NOT USE AS A SOLE SOURCE OF NUTRITION FOR WEIGHT LOSS OR MAINTENANCE. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE.
