Product Description

Flavor: French Vanilla | Size: 2 Pound

Product Description

Rapid protein use is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times – including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are sensitive and tend to thicken in the stomach.  Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for our Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein is also free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and synthetic colors and uses only premium micellar caseins to create a protein that’s truly time-released.

Taste is great even just mixed in water.
kija
Only drawback is that I think the only way to get rid of all of the clumps that won't blend out in a shaker bottle would be to mix the shake in a blender.

I always order the largest size and it arrives very quickly.

Flavor Name: French VanillaSize Name: 4 Pound Verified Purchase
I'm a 34-year old semi-serious distance runner and run about 50 miles a week and I also lift 4 times a week. That type of training really requires an extra boost of protein consumption in order to avoid muscle tissue degradation. I've tried SO many different protein blends over the years and there is really three essentially criteria that are important to me: 1) Low calories (e.g. no added calories and no or very limited extra added sugar) 2) no fake/chemical sugars at all (no aspartame, sucralose, xylitol, maltilol, etc. - they make my stomach churn) 3) As natural as possible (whey protein is a derived product from milk after all!).

I always laugh when I see someone reviewing the "taste" of a whey protein supplement. Generally speaking, if a whey protein supplement tastes super good, then it's probably loaded with extra sugar, which will basically counteract any benefit you might get with extra protein supplementation, or else it has chemical sugars which will cause long-term problems and possible GI issues.

I don't care about taste at all, it's not at all what I'm looking for. Whey protein isn't supposed to be a treat, it's a supplement. That said, I really do feel like the taste is pretty darn good with this one. Sure, It's not like drinking a milk shake, but it has a smooth flavor that goes down well. I don't ever mix anything it, but I always put tons of ice in my blender bottle and shake it up so it's nice and cold. I feel like with this Casein I have found a winner. I highly recommend this product over all of ON's regular line because its the natural line.

Note: If you're purchasing casein as opposed to whey, it's probably because you want the slow-releasing digestive action of amino acids into the bloodstream that is provided by casein over whey.

It's a great casein protein without any sucralose, acesuflame potassium et al. The French vanilla tastes great to me. I will note that when I tried to mix it with coconut milk, it left a lot of clumps of powder and I could hardly get it down. Water, on the other hand, mixes perfectly to a good consistency.

Flavor Name: Chocolate CrèmeSize Name: 4 Pound Verified Purchase
I gave this 4 stars, but honestly I don't know how to review. Received product in very timely manner, so happy with that. Great value. Here is the big issue - no seal on the canister, no evidence of anything factory. There was even casein powder around the mouth of the canister when I took it out of the box in which it was shipped. Just a bit skeeved out that anyone could have done anything to the powder - stuck their hands (or worse! lol) in it, taken some out (I can weigh it with my bathroom scale i suppose)... So just be aware of this fact when considering purchasing. I live life on the edge so I had a shake before bed last night. Woke up alive, feel ok :) Shake tastes about as good as it can get. Like most other sensible reviewers write, you don't buy a product and knock it for the taste. There is no such thing as a shake of any kind that actually tastes GOOD, trust me I have tried everything. Plant based, whey, casein, egg white, everything. For the money and benefits of casein as an overnight slow-release protein I recommend this. Just be aware that unless you want to gain wight, factor this shake into your daily macros for the most success.

This stuff is good for you and taste good (to me at least). I hate all the fake sweeteners in use in the other product lines and enjoy this one (uses honey and other better tasting stuff like).

This Casein clumps HARD and FAST. I am not sure if other brands do or not but you better be mixing the drink well as you add this in. The blender or other motor powered item will make quick work of it but stirring by hand you gotta really put to power to it to make sure it mixes well. If you don't, you end up with balls of powder. This maybe true off all Casein, its just the nature of this type of protein. Just warning you.

I think I will go back to whey protein, but this was a good choice for this trial.

I love this flavor and this brand. It tastes really good with milk, but water will work ok as well. I take a scoop with some oats before bed.

I read many of the reviews before pulling the trigger on this one but I'm glad I did. I was really concerned about the complaints about the taste. Having lived with many whey protein powders that contain artificial sweeteners and flavors, and gagging on them (in addition to having unsettled bowels), I started to buy natural ones, which relieved me of the nastiness. The natural ones are far better tasting for me and this natural casein powder is no different. Doesn't give you that gag inducing diet cola after taste. And just knowing that the flavors are all natural makes it easier to stomach.

As for its tendency to get clumpy.. yes it does. But one way around it is to mix it thoroughly with a bit of whey protein powder while it's dry and then pour in 1/2 of your liquid then stir and then pour the rest of the liquid then stir until smooth. -you're welcome.

So, this isn't bad, but beware if you liked the natural Vanilla Whey and thought this would be comparable in flavor. This product smells incredibly fake and tastes sickeningly sweet by comparison. It doesn't really matter what I mix with it, all I can smell is one of those yellow french vanilla car air freshener hang tags that you're ashamed to admit you thought were a good idea two decades ago.

Otherwise, it's a relatively low-ingredient Casein protein that mixes well, but I'm convinced there must be a better flavor out there.
