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.

Was advised to take this by a friend. When I got it the powder is very fine so u have too be carefull as easily goes everywhere. The product it's self is brilliant. I work lates so having before bed time helps with any hunger problems I had. I'm also trying to lose wait but at the same time build myself up and so far working reaily well with my program. Very happy with results using this product Goes Well With:I mx it with skimmed milk but I find if u can use a blender for best finish taste . I tryed shaker and whisk but the powder is very fine so can taste a bit dusty if not mixed right
I don't wanna make the proclamation that this is the best casein on the market but I've tried a lot and the only one that beats this for mixability is optimum nutritions brand, But for everything else I prefer myproteins. I take a scoop post workout mixed with impact whey and a scoop before bed with 3 x ZMAs and have seen a huge difference in my body. use code JAMIE-R55U for 25%off Goes Well With:Impact whey (blended together), zmas
I got a 1kg bag of this and had it every night before bed about 2130 I mixed it with 400ml of semi skimmed milk and it kept me full throughout the whole night and I wasn't hungry when I woke up either usually around 0700 but I'd still have some breakfast at around 0800 so on that side of things it's really good! Slow release proteins as well which stops your body from eating away at your muscle tissue throughout the night but the taste however is very chalky and it mixes really frothy which is the only downfall in my opinion! Vanilla flavour is the one I had it's nice but I'd probably say go for a different one!

Protein doesn't mix as well as other casein products and leaves a powdery after-taste. Some of the mixture is also left frothy at the end of the shake. Overall mild vanilla taste and is drinkable (if you leave the frothy bit out)
Hi, I myself bought this from reading a review listed below about creating cookie dough, Cookie dough thats good for you, you can eat late at night, and cookie dough, cookie dough did I mention cookie dough!!!, This stuff is incredible, I use 50g of Micellar casein unflavoured, about 150ml almond milk, 15g almond butter smooth, and 15g of biscoff cookie butter(This is beautiful) and to add to it I use 1 square of mint/orange dark protein chocolate to give it another flavour. This 3/4 times a week keeps the flavour interesting, amazing, and after those serious days, (arms,legs,core,back,chest) you just keep that protein in you while you sleep! The faster you mend, the faster you can get those gainz!!! Please use my code as your refferal, By doing this you will get 25% off and also help me by getting me some money from my next order which will help alot! MIKE-R5SQ That's my code, Hopefully you get a big order to benefit as much as possible from the 25% off (If you spend 100, you only have to pay 75 and you'll get free next day delivery!) I hope my review was good and helpful and would definitely recommend this product. Goes Well With:50g of Micellar casein unflavoured, about 150ml almond milk, 15g almond butter smooth, and 15g of biscoff cookie butter and I use 1 square of mint/orange dark protein chocolate to
Unfortunately this gave me stomach cramps and stinky farts! I'll be sticking to cottage cheese!
First experience with casein was not so good with another brand. This casein mixes well, although I use a hand blender, and tastes fine (I bought the chocolate flavour). Seems to do it's job well, as I'm seeing results since taking it!Goes Well With:Milk
I feel like I must have been sent a different product from some of the other reviewers because this tastes amazing! Mixability is fine, had no issues with frothing as some others have mentioned and there are certainly no lumps. However as with any powder I find it ALWAYS best to put the milk/water into the shaker first, then the powder on top, then shake. And i also use a mixer ball. To me it tastes incredibly smooth like an indulgent milkshake! Top tip: try it with rice milk, tastes even better and is my favourite thing before bed! And fyi I bought chocolate flavour.Goes Well With:Milk, water, rice milk
I am not a massive fan of anything strawberry flavoured, but I have tried this one and I must say the consistency is very good. The only thing I would say and try mix it in the blender, otherwise it will leave you with a lumps!!! Goes Well With:I would recommend!!!
Purchased this as advised it would be better prior to bed as a slow burning protein. Overall, for the first time, I have been a bit disappointed with a MyProtein product. This is very powdery and is difficult to mix, have tried with both milk and yogurt. It also tastes very grainy when eaten. Wouldn't buy this again, but no problems with anything else I have ever purchased.
I got the Unflavoured version but I currently mix it with Chocolate Peanut Butter Impact Whey Isolate (20g Whey / 10g Casein / 300 ml Almond Milk) and it tastes really good. I can't comment on how it tastes on it's own. When I used water it was horrible. I haven't noticed any difference in recovery time, muscle growth etc yet but it's only been 2 weeks.Goes Well With:Chocolate Peanut Butter Impact Whey Isolate Almond Milk Rolled Oats
Nice and cheap and does the job, doesn't mix as well as premium brands but you don't pay extortionate prices
Chocolate tastes absolutely awful it doesn't mix at all, if you blend it with water and milk it turns into a moose! And is not drinkable at all, stick to whey protein!Goes Well With:Nothing
Was tempted not to buy this due to the negative reviews on how it mixes. I've found it to mix very well. Has a very powdery aftertaste but goes down ok. Still to see if it helps build muscle.
I love this! Perfect before bed. I went for the chocolate flavour and added a shot of decaf coffee and mixed with almond milk! Just like a Mocha. Goes Well With:Almond Milk
This must be a new formula that myprotein are using as I have used casein protein from them before and it wasn't as thick as it is now! Goes Well With:Water
This is my first Casein purchase so i may be judging it unfairly; but I find the texture horrid. Its very powdery and created a mass of foam when mixed.
Mixes well and is good quality but vanilla taste is weak. The flavour won't quite cover the taste of casein. Casein doesn't taste bad but flavoured version should taste like the flavour.
