      *The Bigger Picture of Casein

      *Rapid protein use us desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed 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. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for our Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. By using only premium micellar casein, we've created a protein formula that's truly time-released.

    Directions
    Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Tip: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Casein by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop. Blender: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 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. Shake Up Your Shake: By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients. Stack Your Shake: By adding supplements like Micronized Creatine, Glutamine, Taurine, and/or Instantized BCAA powders, you can make Gold Standard 100% Casein an even more powerful post-workout recovery product. Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 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. Suggested Use: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high proteinfoods and supplements. For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day. Tip: Try using "slower" Gold Standard 100% Casein with "faster" proteins at different times for maximum effectiveness. Take Gold Standard 100% Casein immediately before bed and in between meals when delayed protein delivery is desired. Drink proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid "shot" of amino acids.

      I absolutely love this product! Not only is this brand of casein one my favorites, but this flavor is amazing. I usually mix it with milk and water for a quick breakfast, but I have also tried to get creative with it. I've thrown it in the blender with some fruit and yogurt for a smoothie, and put it in my oatmeal with some fruit and nuts! Although casein protein is known to be a little clumpy and whey protein mixes better with certain things, this is still my favorite protein for a quick meal fix and yummy meal!

      This was my first Casein I bought since it was the cheapest at the time. It is a good source of protein that helps with recovery and meal replacement;however, the taste is just awful. When I drink it, I have to gulp it down just so I can finish it. I make shakes with it which creates a better taste, but it still is a pain to swallow. Overall I would say buy it only if you can withstand the taste if not then pass over to a different flavor.

              Unnecessary

              By Ian M

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein - 2 Pound Powder:

              In my research to find out what supplements were necessary for maximizing potential I found myself asking the question, "is it necessary?" For many of the products available, the answer was no. The same goes for casein protein. Do not be fooled by the whole idea of losing muscle while you sleep. Catabolism does not occur overnight, in fact it does not occur until 75 hours without food. You actually need that time while asleep for your body to recover, rather than give it another task in digesting the casein. As for its use in duration sports, like marathons, the body does not concentrate on digestion during strenuous physical activity, thus the casein would go unutilized. And I will not even go into detail about some of the health concerns associated with casein, but I recammend doing your own homework. Casein protein is a cheap protein that used to be thrown out by companies who made whey until someone got the bright idea to take it off their hands and market it as a "time released" protein to turn a profit, and he/she and other companies have succeeded in duping us. But, hopefully you have taken my advice and done some of your own homework to find that casein, as well as many other supplements, is completely unnecessary. Save your money and use it to buy a high quality whey and/or egg protein.

                      This is a good protein -- I normally take it right before bed to feed my body amino acids throughout the night, but occasionally I'll also have a casein shake during the day when I know I won't be able to eat for a while...it does a good job of keeping you full. The one downside is that it doesn't mix as well as ON whey protein (it tends to get chunky, especially if you don't shake it IMMEDIATELY after you add water to it) but if you have a good shaker cup like the Blender Bottle this won't be a problem. Hope this helps!

                                  I've tried a few different flavors of Casein, and this is by far the best in my opinion. I wasn't expecting much, but the taste is fantastic. I wish they made a whey version of this flavor.
