GOLD STANDARD 100% CASEIN
Faster digesting amino acids are 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 Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, ON has created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
BEYOND THE BASICS:
WHAT IS MICELLAR CASEIN?
Micellar Casein is the slowest digesting form of casein. It is separated from milk through an ultrafiltration process. One of Micellar Casein’s unusual properties is its ability to gel during digestion so it can release a steady flow of amino acids over many hours.
Use first thing in the morning, immediately before bed, in place of small meals, and/or any other time when delayed protein absorption is desired. To encourage positive nitrogen blance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For better results, consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Another great Whey Protein from ON, and with so many fewer casein proteins on the market to choose from, ON knocks it out of the park again. Casein isn't easy to drink, typically not easy to mix, and the aftertaste is usually hardly desirable. This is the exceptional. Perfect when mixing with whey isolate to beef up the extended release, of mixes great as a before-bed shake or in a smoothie when casein is so important. This is the only casein whey I buy anymore.
I have to use a blender to get it to mix smoothly. Other than that, it tastes fine.
