The Bigger Picture of Casein
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 acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for our Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. By using only premium micellar casein, we've created a protein formula that's truly time-released.

Beyond the Basics

  • Loaded with 100% Micellar Casein.
  • 24 grams of time-released protein per serving.
  • Contains Aminogen digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
  • Over 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine).
  • Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & glutamine precursors in every scoop.

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 "slower" Gold Standard 100% Casein with "faster" 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 delayed protein delivery is desired. Drink Gold Standard 100% Whey or Pro Complex proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid "shot" of amino acids.

Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to your shaker cup and then pour in 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 you8 use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor 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 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 and even more powerful recovery product.

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.

Doesn't mix as well as I had hoped, but just putting that down to the nature of casein protein

I love this flavour. And I love that Casein is thicker then normal whey which makes it taste like chocolate mousse

Great Casein, Great Taste

Posted by omarBR on Aug 09, 2012 | Verified Purchase

For you guys that dont know, Casein should be used at night, before bed time, so that your body doesnt consume it self so much over the sleep hours (after all , its about 8h without food intake, your body needs energy from somewhere). So Casein works in this case because it is slowly absorbed by the body, so you have a protein source thru the night.-------This casein does the job very nicely, its has good amount of protein per dose , and includes a lot of BCAA, aminoacids that will help your body sustain itself without consuming the muscles you took so long to build.The taste on this one is amazing! Pure chocolate taste.You should use this together with Gold Standard on post workout for greater results. Optimum Casein has a lot of calcium , 60% RDV, BUT BE AWARE Optimum Casein has 260mg of SODIUM, that is 11% of the recommended intake, if you care about your sodium intake (and you should) you should consider this too
