Product Information


Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow 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. Compared to some other proteins, it can take more than twice as long for our Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we’ve created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.

  • Best-Selling Micellar Casein.
  • Nearly 73% Protein by Weight (24g of Protein per 33g Serving Size).
  • 24 Grams of Slow-Digesting Micellar Casein per Serving.
  • Nearly 5 Grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) per Serving.
  • Nearly 5 Grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Every Scoop.

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 a shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. TIP: Adjust the flavor and texture of your Gold Standard 100% Casein™ shake by varying the amount of liquid you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with a slightly thicker body and more sweetness, mix one scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk or your favorite beverage. For a thinner, milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid. Don’t have a shaker cup? Visit and order a custom shaker, or visit your local health food store or gym.

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 fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. STACK YOUR SHAKE: Customize your Gold Standard 100% Casein shake by adding recovery products like Creatine, Glutamine and BCAA Powders.

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 enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For the best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Mixes great, I'll just choose a different flavor next time!
I love how easy it is to mix this stuff up! You can mix it with a spoon in a glass and it's not clumpy! However, the flavor I got, cookie dough, was a bit to sweet for me so I have to add less to a glass. So FYI if you guys don't like the sweeter stuff avoid cookie dough. Happy with the price of the product too!

All well, except customs delay
Product came as described. Price was good. The product did get stopped at customs in China, but an agent called me and requested the additional details they needed to get approved. Took an extra week to clear and arrive at my residence, but came in the end. Overall good experience and successful delivery. Better understanding of collecting appropriate China Customs details on order would probably help with more seamless delivery.

Gold Standard 100% Casein
Very happy with the taste, easy to mix, not clumpy, and feel the results. Definitely would recommend it as an overnight slow burn addition to Gold Standard Whey fast burn day protein. Thanks Gold Standard!

I use this every night before bed to help with protein synthesis and metabolism while I'm sleeping. Not to mention I also use it to get my extra daily dose of protein with meals. Tastes great and it usually lasts me longer than an entire month with my usage so the value is ok for me.

Good choice for Casein
Enjoyable tasting, and competitively priced. Not a ton of choices on the market, at least on the GNC site. It doesnt mix that well, but it goes down smooth enough. It does taste like cookies and cream. :)
