Description

THE TRUE STRENGTH OF CASEIN
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.

BEYOND THE BASICS

How To Use

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 optimumnutrition.com 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.

Strawberry Cream flavor
Pros:
Good strawberry flavor.
Not as hyper-sweet as some of the other flavors.

Cons:
Seems to separate faster - often have to guzzle shake.
Tastes a little chalky (like the old Flintstones vitamins).

Would purchase again, but still looking for a favorite flavor.

Is this protein a good way to loose weight fast if not which one is? please answer hopping to get a better body
A shopper on Apr 14, 2013

Should I take this with Whey Protein?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Product description does not include consuming whey protein with item.
Do i take this with Whey protein too?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2010
BEST ANSWER: For best results yes, you should use casein and whey.

Whey protein is best for an immediate release like right after work outs.

Casein protein is time released and is better for a steady protein supply over longer periods, like taken right before bed.

Combined they'd give the best results.

Can you take Casein protein with whey protein?
When is the best time of the day to take casein protein?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you most certainly can take Casein protein with whey protein. The best time to mix the two would be immediately after your workout. The best time of the day to take Casein protein is right before bed (because this is the longest time your body goes without food, and the slow-digesting proteins keep your body in an anabolic state for the majority of the night).
Is casino dairy free?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, casein is actually the main protein found in milk.
i just want to know if drinking this protein is good to gain weight without exercising
A shopper on Dec 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, consumption of Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein - Cookies and Cream will cause weight gain. If exercise is not involved in the weight gain process the weight gained will not be muscle tissue, it will instead be fat tissue that can lead to cardiovascular disease.
If I take Whey protein before and after my workouts, can I still use this before bed?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: For the simple fact that whey is a rather strong product I wouldn't recommend doing more than one dosage a day.
How old should I be to take protein shakes?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The label indicates that this particular product should only be consumed by persons over the age of eighteen. There may be other protein shakes on the market that have no such age restrictions. Muscle Milk, for example, has no age limit.
