The True Strength of Casein
Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption 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. Compared to some other proteins, it can take more than twice as long 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've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
Beyond the Basics
- Best-Selling All Micellar Casein.
- Nearly 73% Protein by Weight (24 g of Protein per 33 g Serving Size).
- 24 grams of Slow Digesting Micellar Casein per Serving.
- Nearly 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) per Serving.
- Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Every Scoop.
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 flavor and texture of your Gold Standard 100% Casein shake by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with a slightly thicker body and more sweetness, mix one scoop with 8-10 ox of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a thinner, milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid.
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 fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other ingredients. Stack Your Shake: Customize your Gold Standard 100% Casein shake by adding recovery products like Creatine, Glutamine and BCAA powders.
Spoon Stirred: If you forget 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.

Tastes great, but a few questionable ingredients
Tastes great, but a few questionable ingredients
I like the taste of this quite a bit (I was a big "cookies n' cream" ice cream fan as a kid), especially because there's a hint of saltiness in the cookie 'bits'. My only regret is that I didn't look close enough at the ingredients before buying, and high fructose corn syrup is part of the cookie bits. It's a very small amount, judging by the very low sugar content per serving. And it didn't upset my stomach (I have fructose malabsorption, so I have to be careful with excess free fructose). Still, I wish they'd remove the HFCS and replace it with plain old sugar. Even better would be to replace the sucralose with stevia! All in all though, this is a tasty protein powder that is particularly great to have just before bed. It helps me sleep and helps me build muscle at the same time, without asking too much of my digestion.
Not a big fan of the flavour

Flavour tastes a bit unnatural to me - almost has a weird synthetic Bailey's taste... some might like it but now my fave! Still a wonderful Casein product however, and works well to turn into a 'pudding' by simply mixing a small amount of water, and stirring in a bowl...
