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.

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.
It's good protein doest bloat me out n mixes well with my op chocolate peanut butter whey protein makes my shakes taste like melted napoleon icecream , and still very good taste on own
First time I have ordered from myprotein and used Micellar Casein. Committing to the largest 2.5 kg was a risk, but one that paid off. The strawberry taste is nice with both water and milk. I consume one Impact Whey Protein shake after training and one Micellar Casein shake before bed in addition to a solid nutrition plan. Would highly recommend.Goes Well With:A good nights sleep
Unreal value for money, easy to mix and actually tastes like chocolate without any horrible after taste. Goes Well With:Peanut butter
I have this before going to bed,a super slow releasing protein that mixes well and tastes amazing
Although this is a good protein source and works well to slowly release protein to your muscles during sleep..the taste is horrendous..literally one of the worst tasting protein shakes i have ever had..but despite being critical i expect the taste is due to it being a casein protein and not a whey one. If you can stomach the taste then you have an excellent source of protein before bed.Goes Well With:Opt for water over milk otherwise you are drinking pva glue.
Very nice, I use this protein shake all the time, would not be with out it
good product, but really..the mixability is terrible...
Powder does not mix well even after putting more than 300 ml of milk.
Being using Micellar Casein chocolate flavour for the past year. And I'm seeing really great gains in muscle mass and definition. Would definitely recommend the chocolate flavour mixes quite good and keeps me full all night.Goes Well With:Goes well with instant oats. For a late night meal.
This product is an essential before bed! It helps me disgest protein needed to gain muscle...while I am sleeping!! What more could you ask for? Definitely worth the purchase.Goes Well With:Milk
I tried another casein before, but this one I must admit is really good! I mixed it with both water & milk on different days, goes very well with both.Goes Well With:water, milk
A little tough to mix in a shaker but done in a blink with a blender. Very smooth and tastes great for a casein drink. 2 scoops before bed and recovery has been much faster with aches subsiding much sooner. Not so hungry in the morning. Only tried the chocolate which I would definitely recommend.Goes Well With:Milk
Perfect for the night to help muscle recovery. I play semi professional football but do like to work on strength and aesthetics and found this product useful for both. Only negative thing, small that it is, is that when you shake it it does produce a lot of froth! Goes Well With:I use it as just a shake.
Excellent value, mixes well with milk or water, chocolate flavour great tasting
This product is really good. Favourite treat of the day. I mix 1 scoop casein with only 80-100ml of water in a shaker, pour it in a glass, put it in the fridge for 20 minutes or even less and voila! I top it with peanut butter, take a spoon and jump to the bed. Lovely pudding for the night! In the mornings I'm usually knackered but since I use this casein, I can finally function 5 minutes after waking up 👌Goes Well With:Water and peanut butter 30 min before sleep.
Great product. I combine this with an equal amount of Impact Whey Protein to make a great blend of fast and slow digesting proteins. Mixes great with milk or water, no lumps and tastes great. The vanilla flavour also goes well with the peach mango bcaa for my post workout shakeGoes Well With:Impact Whey Protein, milk, water, bcaa
Good taste, mixes wellness ok, waterGoes Well With:Milk, water
I have tried casein several times and the product that MyProtein delivers is very high quality. However, what prompted me to write a review is their excellent customer service, as Yodel lost the parcel and MyProtein sent a replacement as they investigated what happened with the delivery. Kudos to them, not only for providing a great quality product, but also delivering to their customer as promised. Best wishes to their team.Goes Well With:I have it unflavoured with whey isolate (lactose intolerant) and it goes great, keeps you full for long and provides very high quality protein.
I ordered the unflavoured package (good mixability and its flavour won't mask or overpower anything thing that you add to the shake), shopped around prior purchasing - myprotein.com offers best prices and high-quality product; indeed, labdoor ranked the product with an A and tops the best value classification. Hence, I would not find any minimal hesitation in recommending this product.Goes Well With:Anything
Like it say awesome tatse and the price was real cheapGoes Well With:Total nutri green (unflavored)
This powder is chalk like and somewhat gritty. I find it hard to drink. I've hand mixed, shook and put in my nutribullet but haventry found a way to mix it that gives me a palatable shake.
This product is absolutely brilliant. I cannot yet say anything about it's effectivnes because i only had it for a few days, but i just had to write this review because this is one of the best things i have ever tried. I mixed this casein (Vanilla) flavour with 30g of almonds, 200g of cottage cheese and a just a little bit of low fat milk. Put it in the fridge for like half an hour or maybe an hour and had it before bad. It had absolutely brilliant taste. I really wish you guys give it a try!Goes Well With:Water, milk
I recommend this to others as a good value for money cassien. Buy in bulk to get an even better savingGoes Well With:Milk, water and ice
Bought unflavoured, very foamy, but it does the job, you get what you pay for Goes Well With:Water & desire for gains on a budget
brought this to mix in to my bowl of yogurt & toppings before bed and its just impossible to mix in .. makes the yogurt so thick and is so 'powdery' most of it ended up every where but the bowl Goes Well With:i wish i knew this answer
It's a fabulous product but create too much foam after mixing. Strawberry flavour is my favourite.
The taste is just ok.I went for vanilla and it's not bad but not awesome either.Just ok. Effectiveness of this product is on top I guess.I drink it before bed and in the morning I'm waking up fresh and not starving.Before,when I did not use Casein I would wake up in about 6 h because i m hungry,with casein I just get a good sleep about 8-9 h so this is a big plus. Bad point is it's not possible to mix it well without shake being half foam,this is just terrible!!! Beware foam!Goes Well With:Water on cutting,semi skimmed milk on bulking Hate foam
I like this product, it helps digest high levels of protein really well for me. The only thing I'd say, is to maybe address the slight acid like taste you get with the strawberry, I mean, it's alright but could taste nicer. I'd have it again no complaints, but that's just my thoughts.
Recovery and growth i feel my muscles are at ease more and its a tasty and easy way to get carbs and protein in
When I shake one scoop to 300ml water is impossible to drink that. Half liquid half foam. And the foam stay for more than 12h. How to drink foam
Good taste easy to shake and effective
I've purchase a bag of unflavoured casein, having already purchase a chocolate flavoured one before. I thought the chocolate one was good, easy to drink, but because I have a bag of unflavoured Whey and I like it, I've decided to get the casein as well, and benefit the better protein quantity. I have to say it's impossible to mix it without turning into foam. Even just pouring water on top of it creates foam, never seen anything like it. I've tried everything possible to mix it, but it automatically turns into foam. I don't want to drink foam every night, because it's not nice to drink, and also leaves me completely bloated. I have no issues with the flavour, but I consider this a waste of money, because it's so hard to take it. I can't believe I bought a 4kg bag. Contacted MyProtein about this, they say it's normal because batches can have some differences, and that the product is fine. Well, I won't gamble again with their products. I can't recommend this product, based in the fact that it's impossible to mix it into a liquid.
The powder is like chalk dust, if you get it on your hands or clothes again it's like chalk dust. Used a few other brands and have been really nice. I have always used vanilla flavour when I buy casein products, this is the worst for flavour and texture and chalkiness. I won't be getting it again.Goes Well With:Water or milk both same taste
Good mix, good taste but only been on it for a week.
