Product Information

Description

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.
THE TRUE STRENGTH OF 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 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.

PRODUCT DIRECTIONS / ADDITIONAl INFO

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.

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.

It's worth every penny.
After going through some problems w my liver, I was really down in weight especially my poor legs. My body came back, but I just couldn't get enough protein for my legs apparently. After I began taking casein around bedtime or when I wouldn't be eating for a while, I have noticed a change in myLeg strength. This is only after a couple weeks. You also feel pretty darn good when you wake up too. Tastes great as well.

Bit of a Disappointment
Does not dissolve readily; best mixed with a blender. Vanilla flavoring is too strong and tastes a bit off with an aftertaste even when mixed with fruit. Sodium level is higher than similar products offered and contains Yellow #5 - why?

Masters class Olympic lifter
I've always been very careful about ingesting any supplements. I've lifted both power and olympic for most of my life (since 1966). I was having difficulty recovering from workouts and my muscles were sore a lot on my off-days. My coach recommended Casein. I started taking a scoop before bed at night. The vanilla tastes pretty good. I immediately noticed an improvement in my workouts and I wasn't sore in the mornings. I would recommend this as a recovery supplement.

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.
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
BEST ANSWER: Casein protein in milk may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite, calorie burning, and body composition.
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.
Is casino dairy free?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, casein is actually the main protein found in milk.
I bought this and the white seal on the inside was inside the lid. Should it have been glued on?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ohh my god... my came same way and i started using it. What should i do know?
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.
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).
