From the Manufacturer

ON’s Slowest & Easiest Mixing Casein

Right before or after training, a fast-acting protein like whey is ideal. But recovery from exercise can take up to 48 hours to complete, and the time you spend sleeping is the longest your body goes without nutritional support. Used between meals and especially right before bed, ON’s new Platinum Tri-Celle Casein can help provide lasting amino acid support for recovering muscles. Exclusive MicelleXL technology restructures casein micelles approximately three times the average size. ON also included L-Theanine in this advanced formula to help you make the most of your recovery.

Beyond The Basics

ON’s slowest, easiest mixing & best tasting casein at 30 grams of micellar casein protein per serving. Features exclusive MicelleXL technology plus Lactium milk protein hydrolysates, with 12.5 grams of essential amino acids and 200 milligrams of L-Theanine. Contains 60% of the daily value for calcium while providing anti-catabolic muscle support.

Make Nighttime Smoothies

The thick, creamy texture of Platinum Tri-Celle Casein makes a great foundation for smoothies. Just combine with fruit, nuts and/or juices in an electric blender.

Casein Ice Cream Recipe

Use half the amount of milk or water recommended on label (5-6 ounces), thoroughly mix in one scoop and place in the freezer for 5 minutes. Enjoy!

Optimal Usage Occasions

Before bed and between meals.

Flavor Name: Chocolate Decadence Verified Purchase
So I'm not a huge fan of marketing terms like Tri-Celle or Platinum series, however after looking at the ingredients (and finding a solid sale elsewhere for my initial tub) I decided it couldn't hurt. Needless to say I was impressed. As such, I will compare this to my typical Casein supplement (100% Gold Casein by ON).

Taste:
- I would say they are about equal. Little in terms of sugar and you probably won't get addicted to it, but it definitely won't send you running. I haven't tried the vanilla yet but the chocolate is always a solid go-to.

Mixability:
- The biggest issue with 100% Gold Casein is its mixability. It seems to have gotten better over the years (that or blender bottles have gotten better) but you definitely won't get any clumping with the TriCelle. I used the typical metal blender ball bottle (20oz) with about 8oz of water and it only takes a few shakes to fully mix up. Milk works just as well however I warn you against it (read below).

Texture:
- It's actually fairly smooth but it does seem to thicken fairly quickly over time. I would suggest against using milk (if so, go half and half with water) simply because it can get a little too thick/difficult to drink. I made the mistake of mixing up my regular whey with the TriCelle and put milk into it...definitely took a while to down.

Cost:
- So this is the fun part. Initially the cost looks fairly expensive, but all Casein really it. However, if you compare the number of servings in a typical tub of TriCelle (25) vs the number of servings in 100% Casein (50?) and then factor in the 30g of Protein vs. 24g the TriCelle really isn't terribly more expensive in terms of grams of protein/$.

If you have the money to spend on this, it tastes really good and you get 6 or 7 more grams of protein for less calories than most similar protein powders. There are only 25 servings in this jug, that makes it even more expensive. I plan to only use this stuff on the nights (4x per week) that I go to the gym and my other less expensive stuff on non-workout days. That will make is last about 6 weeks. Anyway, just my thoughts.

Was always a fan of ON's 100% casein so was interested to see what this "Tri-celle" stuff would be like. First thing I noticed was that it mixes better than any powder I've ever tried before. After mixing, it starts to get slowly thicker so I added some more water before drinking it. Tastewise it was delicious - verly like drinking a thick chocolate shake. I felt full afterwards. If it carries on thickening after consumption then I guess it will be a great satiety product. But I don't know what its effects were in this regard as I went straight to sleep. I have to say however, that when I woke up, I felt good and was in no hurry to have breakfast

I do not know if all this science behind bigger micelles (tri-celles) is real or bogus since I still have not been able to find any peer reviewed study or serious research. What I can say is this is the best tasting and most mixable casein I have tried (even better than the already excellent Micellar Casein from ON). This product if you subscribe and save gets down to a very reasonable price. I get this at around 30 dollars versus the 50 that a 100% Casein bucket would cost. It has half the servings (26 vs 52) but more protein per serving (30 vs 24). If you crunch some numbers the price per gram of protein for Tri-Celle is 0.038 and for 100% Casein around 0.04. So it is actually cheaper than its not as premium counterpart here on Amazon if you are a 15%off subscriber and just a tad more expensive if not. For me it is a no brainer to get a couple bucket every months especially since there is some serious evidence Casein is actually better than whey for muscle building (a blend with more than 50% Casein is optimal and that is what I use). Just subscribe and enjoy!

If you have never tried Casein before, it is very thick. I mix one scoop with 12-16 ounces of water (on the high end of the range of the recommendation on the label) and it is still pretty thick. I take a casein shake sometime after dinner but before bed to sustain muscle growth and repair overnight. In addition, studies have shown that slow-digesting proteins taken close to bedtime help boost metabolism. I use fast-absorbing whey protein after workouts to aid in immediate amino delivery to depleted muscles, and I make casein-whey blends for other random times (particularly on weekends when I am far less active). Blending gives you the best of both words: an immediate protein boost and a sustained protein punch that lasts for several hours. I haven't had any GI problems from taking casein, but then again I have a very high lactose tolerance. If you are lactose intolerant, this stuff will hit you hard. It is the purest form of what causes your intolerance!

I mix one/two scoops with a small amount of water and put it in the fridge. It quickly reaches a thick consistency and I can eat this as dessert or even dinner. Don't put it in the freezer for too long, or it will solidify into hard rock and take forever to thaw. The taste was okay. It doesn't taste like a true dessert because it has a slight pharmaceutical aftertaste. I notice such a pharmaceutical taste in every protein supplement product I have ever tried. This product does not have any stronger pharmaceutical taste than others.

I noticed that this does have a sort of filling effect -- I felt full for the entire night until morning. This might be the slow-digesting nature of this protein.
