        • 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.

        it is very difficult to find protein powders that taste good... many have aftertastes.. not casein gold standard chocolate and chocolate peanutbutter... it is an awesome protein source to throw down before bed, and during the day if i miss a meal.. i prepare it two ways, either in a shake with water and crushed ice ( mucho yummy), or at night as a pudding with a bit of peanut butter powder, freeze for an hour serve..... a delicous frozen treat and just what you need before bed. I won't use any other protein powder or buy it anywhere else. i have had to buy casein gold standard at GNC once.. it was 20.00$ more expensive than at the vitamin store.... a great product and well worth every penny!! julianne sullivan..... a faithful athlete and customer..

        This flavor is decent, but could use some work. I have made gains from taking one scoop of this before bed & taking one scoop of 100%whey cookies and cream. I recommend this to anyone looking to gain lean muscle mass. Decent flavor but tastes best with low fat milk. It's a pain to mix & has a weird texture but all casein does.

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

        I bought this and Chocolate Supreme which after a few times drinking both I prefer that one over the chocolate/peanut butter.

        The C/PB tastes ok but the chocolate only is tastier and it stirs a LOT easier as well.

        Still, it's nice to have a variety and I haven't tried it in a blender yet just by hand.

        The product is effective though.
        I was working extra hours at UPS for peak season and this seemed to help me recover from sore muscles, especially biceps and shoulders. I would get out late at night so Casein protein is perfect for this schedule.

        If you don't like thick tasting shakes add AT LEAST 10 ounces of water.

          Definitely worth the extra cost. This product mixes well and tastes good. Got the chocolate-peanut butter because it's the best flavor in the world LOL. Cassein is a different consistency than whey. Use it every night before bed as part of a training/meal plan.

            The product works fine, but this flavor is GROSS :( I tried the cookies and cream last and it's much better. I put a little bit of sugar free pudding mix in with my casein and unsweet almond milk and this flavor it edible, but next time I will try vanilla or chocolate.

              This tastes, alright, not the best in my opinion. I drink it at night before I go to bed. I mix one scoop with about 12-14 ounces of cold water, and I use an immersion blender in the glass to get all the clumps out and make it smoooth.

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

                I've tried several flavors of casein from ON over the years, and this one is easily the best-tasting and also mixes with water in a shaker better than any of them. Put 12-16 ounces of water (despite what the label suggests) in a shaker, mix with a scoop plus any glutamine, BCAAs, etc. that you want to throw in, and away you go. You'll steer clear of the clumpy shakes that are bound to result from the thicker casein formula.

                      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.

                      Science backs up your review. The best source of casein is cottage cheese, good quality whole milk, or aged cheeses. Most casein in powders is beaten up with chemicals. Huge profit margin on an industrial by-product. Casein powders are a ripoff.

                          ON Casein works great. I use it before I go to bed and in between meals and do not feel hungry. It's great to curve that appitite. It's easy on the stomach as well. Very good taste for choco. peanut butter. Casein does tend to clump a little more than whey, but it's all good (just use the shaker a little longer) It's good price for the web deals. Highly recommended

                              To get the best taste out of this, mix it in a blender with skim milk add teaspoon of jiff peanut butter. Using a shaker cup doesn't always work. This will avoid the clumps !!!!

                                      I just tried this out today and I thought it would taste great according to the reviews. The first couple gulps were okay but then I started to taste some nasty after taste throughout the whole cup. I chugged the whole thing down and was about to vomit. Maybe their other flavors are better.

                                          ON has done a great job with 100% Casein Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter. It tastes good and mixes well with milk or water in a shaker cup. Recommended to take it at night before bed.

                                              This casein protein powder was the first and last I've tried. If you're used to whey, realize that casein mixes into a much more creamy and satisfying consistency. Besides standard shakes, it's wonderful mixed into oatmeal, or with pumpkin puree and a splash of almond milk to make a pudding-like treat.

                                                  I've tried a bunch of casein powders for my pre-bed protein and usually had to gag them all down and found they were difficult to mix. Not this stuff. I actually really like the taste and it's pretty easy to prepare...

                                                      This was very easy to drink for me. I mixed it in the blender with milk, sometimes adding a scoop of ON's pro complex after a work out. This isn't one you have to choke down. It tastes pretty good. Drinking before bed helped me cut out midnight snacks.

                                                          This protein definitely helped me to not feel starved when I woke up, feel more ready for my early morning workouts and MMA training, and the taste would satisfy that sweet tooth that would act up every once in a while! Mix this with some skim milk and you are in for a treat! Definitely worth the price which is remarkably low!

                                                              Great brand for whey protein. Never tried Casein before. Price was great, so, it worth trying.
                                                              Also, flavor seems to be good.
