During sleep, when it is impractical to consume food or drink, your body will be in starvation mode and may start to break down muscle tissue. This could have a negative impact on both recovery and performance. As a result, a slow release protein can be perfect for recovery throughout the night.
Unlike whey, Myprotein Micellar Casein is a slow release protein derived from milk. Casein can take up to 6 hours to completely digest and be utilised, which means that it can drip feed your muscles with a tapered supply of amino acids over a prolonged period of time. This makes Micellar Casein the perfect product for between meals or pre-bed. Each serving boasts an incredible nutritional profile with 26g of protein and only 1.2g of carbohydrates and 0.5g of fat.
This protein source hosts a complete amino acid profile and contains branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are the building blocks for new proteins. Micellar Casein delivers 26g of slowly-absorbed protein per serving which may vastly improve your night-time recovery alongside contributing to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. With minimal fat and carbohydrates, this product certainly compliments the desired goals of a calorie-controlled diet.
Micellar Casein is an excellent source of protein for any individual, from recreational gym-goers to ultra-marathon runners who are looking to increase their daily protein intake to contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. As a dietary supplement, we recommend consuming before bed with milk or between meals with water, 2-3 times per day.

Add 7-10oz of water or milk into our shaker (the less liquid the thicker the shake will be). Then add 30g, shake and consume. Use just before bedtime for optimum results, but can also be taken between meals or 2-3 times a day.

just started taking this product and find it mixes well with milk at night time and also with water during the day. It tastes great too and quite thick if using a little less liquid and really fills you up. The only down side is the massive bag it comes in and is quite messy when trying to put in shaker as the powder is very fine and a scoop of the exact size would be better than trying to guess the one and a quarter that is required. I will be continuing to use this product as it is great value.Goes Well With:water or milk
Terrible consistency and mix-ability. Half of the shaker is foam. Long way to go before competing with ON.
Take this before bed for the slow release of protein while asleep. Chocolate with water taste good and mixes well. It is a very fine powder compared to whey protein so be caregull if your wearing dark clothes as it can be a pain to get off.Goes Well With:Water
In comparison to casein from ON or BSN it's not even worth a try. I've bought chocolate one - it doesn't have even a pinch of chocolate taste in it. Tastes really awful, and the consistency is horrible. Don't buy it - ain't worth a penny.
Mixed with water it don't seem to have a strong taste but with milk the taste is more strong. Mixes ok best to mix and leave for 5min can taste powder and it foam up well so shake let stand and made with milk very nice ,good quality which is the most important thing. Strawberry casien Goes Well With:Milk and a couple spoon full of Greek yogurt
Poor taste and not thick but works
I bought 1kg and just want to finish it quickly. I don't feel like it is effective. I bought the vanilla one and it does not taste good.
Gets the job done nothing special but above average. I gove it 3 stars because I haven't tried anyone elses brand. Mixability is definitely 2 stars you almost need too much water to be honest. Goes Well With:Whey protein shakes (true whey) enhances Mixability
Thought I'd give it a try for the price. Mixes slow and tastes chalky. Disappointed as I like to buy British, but sadly you get what you pad for here.Goes Well With:Nothing
Went for the unflavoured version of this stuff and can see straight away the problem with the foaming after shaking. Compared to other products the amount of foam left after shaking this product is crazy but there is a simple solution. I filled my shaker with 300mls or so of water and then added a scoop on top. I took a big spoon to the mix and gave it a stong stir for a minute or so. Result was a smooth shake with no lumps. Hope this helps.
It is not as tasty and easy to mix as Impact Whey. Very foamy aswell. Haven't tried any other Caseins in past, so taking all those Cons as a must. It gets job done, that's all I am bothered about. So if you are serious about your gains,then just overcome yourself and deal with it. Goes Well With:Flav drops and skimmed milk
This has got to be the most annoying Casein i have ever tried and the reasons being due to the powder being so fine that it's impossible to open or reseal a bag without sending out a massive cloud of it and the same with taking out a scoop to put it in your shaker. The Taste: I tried Vanilla, the taste was ok, but it badly had that chalky texture to it, i have tried it with milk, water, smoothie form, yogurt (which isnt too bad as it becomes like a pudding) Unfortunately i bought 2kgs of this and can not wait to just hurry up and finish it.
Ran out of whey in your cupboard so you’re thinking of taking casein instead? Well think again. This stuff is lumpy, tastes like paint thinner, and leaves a nasty residue with the consistency of congealed halloumi. Fancy eating congealed halloumi that tastes like paint thinner? Then drink (read: eat) this. I’m opting for USN instead. Goes Well With:Not even the better end of a yardstick.
Bought two massive 2.5kg of chocolate instead of whey and it's awful so I'll be going back to that afterGoes Well With:Nothing
Very tasty, mixes very easy in a shaker, tends to froth easily though so not too much shaking.
I've tried several chocolate flavoured casein brands and my protein is by far the worst tasting. Overly sweet, and extremely saccharine and artificial tasting. I won't be buying this again and I will be holding my nose while I try and finish it up. Goes Well With:Nothing
Great product. Delivered quickly, tastes great and does the job!Goes Well With:Yoghurt Porridge Coconut milk
Love this stuff for cooking with and makes a delicious fro-yo when mixed with Greek yoghurt..... Goes Well With:Greek yoghurt
I love all MP products i have tried so far and love their normal whey protein. The Casein I have recently bought (strawberry flavour) is almost undrinkable. the taste is quite nice, but it feels like im drinking chalk. It mixes awfully, and the last 50ml's is usually all foam. I've dried mixing it with water and milk. Putting it in a blender with Milk and a banana has made it quite drinkable, but thats very excessive just for one shake. It seems like many reviewers have the same problem, yet many do not. So maybe certain flavours mix poorly, I'm not sure. Either way, there's not much research to suggest Casein>Whey Protein, and with it costing about 25% more on this site, plus the fact that it might mix poorly, I'd stick with the normal Whey. Dreading getting through the next 2.25kg of this pouchGoes Well With:Chalk
Too much foam is produced with this product. Even if i prepare the shake 2 hours before gym the foam still stays there. other than that the product is good.
