  • 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

Use ON 100% CASEIN PROTEIN first thing in the morning, immediately before bed, in place of small meals, and/or any other time when delayed protein absorption is desired. To encourage positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For better results, consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Warning

Use ON 100% CASEIN PROTEIN first thing in the morning, immediately before bed, in place of small meals, and/or any other time when delayed protein absorption is desired. To encourage positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For better results, consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 meals spread evenly throughout the day. Mix 1 heaping scoop of ON 100% CASEIN PROTEIN with 10-12 fl oz of cold water or milk.

    The first four shakes didn't bother me but after that I could no longer stand the taste of this stuff. I bought this simply because it was on sale at my local Vitamin Shoppe. I'm not slamming the brand because I love ON's protein. The vanilla flavor is awful and it doesn't mix well. When in doubt, you can't go wrong with chocolate.

        Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein Creamy Vanilla - 2 Pound Powder:

        I had little to no problem digesting this and this was a plus because I'm lactose intolerant. The macro's are ideal for someone who isn't trying to add a lot of unnecessary fats and carbs to their diet. I found this protein is great for smoothies due to it's thickness. The taste isn't overwhelming, but simple. Vanilla flavor is easy to doctor up with spices like cinnamon and extracts like almond. This will be my choice of casein from here on out!

            I have found this one to have the best taste of all the casein proteins and it makes a perfect bed time protein shake. Although it is a little frothy so letting it set a couple of minutes after shaking makes it better.

                I really wanted to like this protein but ON casein gives me the worse tummy pain. I am lactose and I have tried other caseins with no pain. However, this for me does not agree with my lactose tendencies nor is the flavor that great. I am trying to use it so not waste it. It's ok in baking. I would not use in mug cakes as its very drying.

                            You can research the benefits of using casein yourself if you'd like, but really it's just smart to use a slow-acting protein while you sleep to help your muscles rebuild overnight. It is significantly thicker than ON's whey products, so if it seems too thick in your shaker cup or whatever you're mixing it in...just add more water. It also doesn't taste quite as good as ON's whey products, but I wouldn't really say it's bad or anything like that either...it's okay. Regardless, casein is a very good and useful product, and I have it every night before I go to bed.

                                            I purchased this a few weeks ago and really enjoy it. I mix a scoop with 1 c. water in the shaker and then add 1/2 c. skim milk. Sometimes a little fat free / sugar free chocolate syrup does not hurt either. I usually drink this before I go to bed and it a great substitute for that late night sweet tooth.

                                                The good is it tastes great if you like vanilla. It tastes like vanilla cake. Much better than the cookie and cream flavor.

                                                Tastes like fake yellow cake batter and does not incorporate into liquid completely, even after shaken vigorously with ice and wisk-ball for 60-90 seconds. Artificial flavor is bad, overly sweet and end product is thick, but you drink lumps of product.

                                                I had the absolute opposite experience. Maybe the one you purchased was expired?

                                                    I just started using ON products recently and this is by far the BEST casein powder mix I have ever come across. It mixes so well into whatever you want (I, for example, put it in a shaker bottle with milk). The taste is outstanding, easily better than a milkshake! The price is, as you can see, SUPERB! And yes, it actually DOES work! I never realized how much not having a slow-digesting protein in my system during my sleep was hindering my muscular growth until I started taking casein. For this price, it's a steal -- in other words, BUY IT!!!

                                                        Casein digests slowly and you're supposed to take it before bed. That's why people buy it. When compared to GNC's casein, this one is less expensive and mixes better in water.

                                                            I am not sure why someone called this a "garbage protein". CASEIN gels in the stomach which makes it desirable if you want a slow acting protein. Because it gels it provides a slow release of amino acids into the blood stream. (most would indeed consider that time release) That in turn provides a better nitrogen retention and utilization by the body.

                                                                Casein is considered a time release protein. This is why you buy it. Whey protein enters the blood stream very quickly but doesn't stay around all that long. You need a supply of protein over a long period of time. I mix casein and whey so I can get the best of both worlds.

Because casein clots in the stomach it slowly releases the amino acids. This comment is a disservice to serious buyers
