While rapidly digesting whey protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help support muscle recovery, a slower digesting casein protein is the better choice between meals and especially right before bed when your body can go for hours without nutritional support. Casein proteins thicken in the acidic environment of the stomach and, compared to other proteins, it can take longer for our Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we’re created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
24 grams of slow-digesting micellar casein per serving with 60% of the daily value for Calcium. Provides nearly 5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine) and nearly 5 grams of naturally occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in every scoop.
While whey protein shakes tend to be thinner in consistency, casein protein powder creates a thicker more richly flavored shake. When mixed into cold water or milk, micellar casein resembles an ice cream milkshake in texture. It’s a solid foundation for using an electric blender to create endless varieties of smoothies with fruits, nuts and other ingredients.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with an amino acid packed protein treat you’ll look forward to using as a before bed snack. Simply mix one scoop into half the amount of water or milk you normally use (5 to 6 ounces), place in the freezer for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
Before bed to provide amino acid delivery while you’re asleep and between meals for lasting protein support.

Taste is great and provide a nice thickness to the drink when mixed with other proteins.Published 6 hours ago by c00lduke
This tastes great, but I can see how some people say it's like drinking brownie batter. I have been using it with almond milk and I like it. Read morePublished 23 hours ago by Rin89
Absouletly delicious. With milk, tasted like a classic vanilla milkshake. Forgot that I was even drinking protein.Published 2 days ago by Alexander Bhasavanich
If you're on a ketogenic diet, it can be difficult to find a good quality casein protein that isn't too high in carbs. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Kelketek Rritaa
this protein is avoidable. Not effective and also very heavy. You feel like you had an ice cream shake after you drink it. The flavour also tastes too artificial. Read morePublished 4 days ago by mohit agarwal
I've been using Optimum protein since 2001. I've always used the whey, and when casein was introduced I picked it up for the slower absorbing characteristic. Read morePublished 5 days ago by A.H.
