BEYOND THE BASICS
- The best All-Micellar Casein.
- 24 grams of time-released protein per serving.
- Contains AMINOGEN® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
- Over 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine).
- Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & glutamine precursors in every scoop.
Rapid protein use is 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.
- Supplement Facts
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 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. Don’t have a shaker cup?
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 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 30seconds or until powder is dissolved.
Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods 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 like Gold Standard 100% Whey™ or Pro Complex® 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 Gold Standard 100% Whey™ or Pro Complex® proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid “shot” of amino acids.

- Health Notes
Casein ProteinCasein Protein
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
- Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
- For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:
Used for Amount WhyAthletic Performance Refer to label instructions [2 stars] Casein protein is more slowly digested than other animal proteins, resulting in a slower, prolonged rise in blood levels of amino acids, so some speculate that it may better support protein synthesis by the body compared with proteins like whey protein that are more rapidly digested.Obesity Refer to label instructions [2 stars] Casein protein in milk may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite, calorie burning, and body composition.Casein is the main protein found in milk. Similar to other animal proteins, casein is a complete protein, providing generous amounts of essential amino acids.1 However, it is digested more slowly than most other animal proteins, resulting in a more prolonged release of amino acids into the bloodstream.2

Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard™ Casein Protein - Chocolate Cake Batter:
I hardcore weight train 2 hrs a day & mix in cardio everyday and this stuff gives me the recovery I need to be able to push myself each & everyday! I have 1 whey protein shake (2 scoops) immediately following my workouts and 1 casein shake before bed (2 scoops)combined with a strict diet and have seen amazing results! Remember, it doesn't matter how much work you put in the gym if you don't give your body the fuel it needs to grow!
BY THE WAY, the chocolate cake batter is delicious!! The shakes can be a pain to mix up, but me personally, I like the thickness of them! gives you a nice full satisfying feeling.
ALSO, the cookie dough flavor is tasty as well!
