        • 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 mat 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, weve created a protein formula thats truly time-released.

      Directions
      Shaker: Add one heaping scoop to your shaker cup and then pour 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Blender: Add one heaping scoop to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Spoon Stirred: Add one heaping scoop to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.

      I make casein pudding every night before bed. Not sure if it's this stuff, or combination of this and drinking Syntrax Nectar protein daily, but I have not had ANY cravings since adding to my routine. Trainer said it tastes gross, but I don't think it's bad at all! I mix 1 scoop with 8 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a heaping spoon or two of lite cool whip, and a little bit of sugar free pudding mix (chocolate). It makes it a mousse consistency! YUM! Curious to know what the other flavors are like...

          This one is good mixed with water, but GREAT with milk or almond milk blended for a shake. I have to admit that the ON Chocolate Casein is still my absolute favorite flavor, but this one rates right up there!

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

            ON Casein is high quality and does not upset my tummy. I love all flavors but cookies n cream is great as a bedtime "dessert." I like to mix with very little water until pudding consistency and eat out of a bowl. Makes me feel like I'm cheating but without the guilt.

              this tastes better than other casein powders I have had in the past, which tend to be chalky tasting but that is not the case with the cookies and cream

                I drink ON Casine every night before bed the slow burn feeds me for the 8+ hours I sleep.
                I wake up hungry but not starving and ready for my workout first thing in the morning.
                No need to eat before hitting the weights.

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

                  I've tried ON's vanilla, chocolate, and now the cookies & cream which I think is the best of the three. The cookies & cream flavor doesn't have an overpowering taste and seems to blend better than the other two. For some reason the vanilla would blend so foamy which seemed to make drinking all the product impossible.

                  I recommend this casein since its 100% Micellar and tastes great.

                      Well I did some research and found that Casein might be what i was looking for...I purchased this 2 days ago, the taste is great...and very easy to drink, though i cant say if its done much yet, since i just bought it...this combined(stacked) with a scoop of whey protein would be a great post-workout shake or bedtime snack since they have all the Branch Chain Amino Acids BCAA's...at times a half a scoop of casein with one scoop of whey might be a good way to go right after my workout..

                              I like ON's casein protein. I mix it with just enough milk to make it like a pudding since casein typically does not mix well as a drinkable shake. Unfortunately, this flavor is not nearly as good as ON's whey cookies and cream. For ON casein- I prefer Chocolate Supreme.
