100% Gold Standard Casein Protein Overview

Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Gold Standard Casein is an ultrapure form of micellar casein protein. Each serving provides a huge serving of undenatured muscle-building casein protein with hardly any calories from fat or carbs. Casein is a favorite of both gainers and dieters for its anabolic effects on muscle growth throughout gaining phases and preservation of muscle during dieting phases.

Casein and whey are both derived from milk protein, and each is absorbed and utilized in an entirely different manner. Whey is broken down and absorbed rather quickly after consumption while casein forms a viscous gel in the digestive tract, allowing the component amino acids to be absorbed over a much longer period. Whey is usually taken immediately after a workout to take advantage of its fast absorption while casein is typically taken during other times, especially at night or a couple of hours before a planned workout. This allows amino acids to be delivered during and after workouts and also while you’re asleep, ensuring optimal nitrogen retention in muscles during these important times of recovery.

100% Gold Standard Casein protein can also be taken anytime to provide a consistent stream of anabolic amino acids into the bloodstream, maximizing both hypertrophy and muscular recovery. Optimum Nutrition has set the standard in quality protein, and their 100% micellar casein is no exception.

100% Gold Standard Casein Protein Description from OPTIMUM NUTRITION
Sometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day.

Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique time-released qualities, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.

Manufacturer's Directions
SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful does of protein immediately after your workout. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Natural Casein to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 fl. oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard Natural 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.

SPOON STIRRED: If you forgot your shaker cup or just do not have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard Natural 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.

Worth it

If you just want to shake this by hand, good luck. It clumps up a lot. If you blend it, its perfect. I use a handheld blender with 2 scoops of this protein in 24fl.oz of milk before going to bed. Great consistency and taste.

Amazing!

Bit pricy, but is probably the best Casein I have ever taken!!!! Quite thick though - only mix with water - tastes amazing when done!
