Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein™
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 Gold Standard 100% Casein™ - Strawberry Cream 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.
BEYOND THE BASICS
- The best All-Micellar Casein.
- 24 grams of time-released protein per serving.
- Contains AMINOGEN® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
- Nearly 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine).
- Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & glutamine precursors in every scoop.
Micellar Casein, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Salt, Lecithin, Gum Blend (Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Carrageenan), Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, Aminogen®
How To Use
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 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.

Good strawberry flavor.
Not as hyper-sweet as some of the other flavors.
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.

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.
When is the best time of the day to take casein protein?
