Micellar Casein

New product

Micellar Casein is a type of protein derived from milk. Micellar Casein, which is the best type of casein protein available due to it being naturally occurring, is made up of 80% casein, and 20% whey. It is a very slow acting protein that releases its amino acids over a period of 6-7 hours.

What is Micellar Casein

Just like whey protein, micellar casein protein is derived from milk, predominantly from cow’s milk, and is an incredibly popular bodybuilding supplement. Unlike whey protein however, micellar casein protein is a slow-release, slow-digesting protein. Whereas whey comes from milk protein liquids left over when milk turns into cheese, the casein is actually predominantly found in the milk curds which are the solids. Micellar basically means that the protein has been naturally separated from the milk without the use of chemicals. The protein has been filtered in a special way so that the nutrients remain intact and in the best possible condition. Because of this top quality extraction method, micellar casein is top of the line protein that is packed full of its natural nutrients and goodness.

How does it work?

Protein is essential for muscle growth and repair, as well as cellular health and function, along with hormone regulation in the human body. Put simply, it is arguably the most important of all three macronutrients, the other two being: fat, and carbohydrates, so ensuring we get enough is absolutely essential. Our muscles need protein to repair themselves and function correctly, so without the protein, not only will they not function properly, but they will not be able to repair and rebuild themselves either. Micellar casein protein, due to its molecular structure, is absorbed differently, as it is digested and broken down much slower than whey protein, making it a slow-release protein that is perfect when consumed right before bed. When we sleep, our bodies repair and rebuild damaged muscles, providing they have enough nutrients on hand. Without them, ironically, they eat away at muscle tissue for energy, which is what is known as ‘muscle catabolism’. With casein protein, your muscles are fed a steady stream of proteins and amino acids for several hours, preventing muscle wastage and breakdown and promoting growth and repair.

What are the main benefits of Micellar Casein?

Some of the main benefits of casein protein include:

Muscle growth and repair

As mentioned, after a strenuous workout, our muscles need plenty of protein and amino acids in order to function correctly and repair themselves. Protein is essential for protein synthesis, and as we do most of our growing at night when we sleep, we need to know we have enough nutrients required. Micellar casein provides a slow and steady release of protein and amino acids, keeping you in an anabolic state as you sleep.

Convenience

Sometimes, we simply don’t have the time to eat, and when trying to build muscle, this can be a real pain. By consuming a micellar protein shake however, you are covered for several hours as your body will have all of the protein, amino acids, and nutrients it could ever need.

Taste

Another huge benefit of these supplements is the fact that they taste so great and are so filling. If you get a late night craving for something sweet, simply mix yourself up a casein protein shake before going to bed, and your sweet craving will be satisfied, plus you’ll feel full as well.

  • Muscle growth and recovery
  • Slow release
  • Slow absorbing
  • Top of the range protein
  • More nutrients retained
  • Convenient
  • Simple to mix
  • Non clumping
  • Can assist with fat loss
  • Helps suppress appetite
  • Promotes cellular health and function
  • Complete amino acid profile
  • And more...

How and when should it be consumed?

For optimal results, experts recommend consuming 1 x micellar casein protein bed late at night, around 30 minutes before you go to bed. If you anticipate the fact that you won’t get chance to eat for a while, you may wish to have a shake earlier in the day as well, to help tide you over.

Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 time(s) per day. Mix product well in 1-2 cups of liquid (water, juice, etc.) immediately before consumption. Store in a cool, dry place.

Micellar Casein VS Hydrolyzed Casein

Hydrolyzed casein protein is basically a casein protein that has been filtered and processed slightly differently. The protein molecules have been “pre-digested” making them easier to be absorbed, thus increasing the bioavailability. As this speeds up the absorption rates, some people see this as a waste of time, as the idea behind casein is that it is absorbed slower than usual.

What can it be stacked with?

Most typical bodybuilding stacks will include micellar casein, along with supplements such as: whey protein, omega 3 supplements, BCAAs, Dextrose, and L-Glutamine.

I found this site through a friend at work and I can say the ratio of price to volume almost made me skeptical, but after ordering my first bag of 5lbs I found that not only was the flavor better than any products I've tasted but it's mixability and effectiveness was outstanding as well. This is by far the best value for any supplements that I've seen in my 8 years of experience.

It doesn't dissolve completely, similar to creatine, but I like the milk-esque taste (I don't know how else to describe it, lol)

It thickens up slightly when put into milk, which I like as well. It is more expensive than the whey, but it does taste better.

Very reasonable price for the amount of protein. Taste is not bad. Only issue - actual weight of full scoop of powder is close to 42 gr, not 30 as on the label. (deducting weight of scoop itself). Have to use kitchen scale every time.
Overall, satisfied and will definitely order again.

I drink this every night before bed and the taste of milk chocolate is absolutely amazing. However, it does not mix very well. I also have the New Zealand Whey Protein Isolate, which mixes very easily with barely any effort required. But the Micellar gets stuck everywhere and sometimes requires me to open my shaker and remove the stuck bits and keep shaking for a good few minutes - which some times does not solve the issue but I guess I get a workout out of it before bed other than that, tastes amazing.

Great price, nutritional profile and taste. Mixes well, but is very thick (like you would expect from a casein). I bought vanilla and chocolate. I really like the taste of the vanilla - like others have said, it's similar to melted ice cream. It's very sweet though. I like the sweetness, but my husband prefers the more mellow (and less sweet) flavour of the chocolate.

Great product (Milk Chocolate) that mixes well and has great nutrition stats. But I was even more pleased with the speedy delivery (I might be the first person to write that about Canada Post), although it probably helps that I'm in Ontario, which is where this company seems to be based. I placed my order with regular shipping and received it less than three business days later. I plan on purchasing my supplements from this company for a long time to come.

Chocolate tastes similar to Jello brand chocolate pudding, but in a weird bland chalky sort of way. I still think it's very palatable, and I like to mix a scoop with a cup of unsweetened almond milk. It usually mixes with minimal lumps, although, if I use a shaker bottle with a blender ball, it's zero lumps. Great meal replacement, keeps me fuller longer than whey.

This was my first time using casein protein and after a couple times attempting to mix the product, i found what i think works for me. I found mixing with milk made it a little too thick. I use 12oz of water in a shaker cup, adding a bit of water before the protein, then filling the remainder after the powder goes in. This seems to prevent the most sticking. As far as taste, it is quite good, and it hasn't bothered my stomach at all. Great value

When you note your comments please be sure to tell us what flavor you have. I think this is important to find out what actually mixes well and what does not. I purchased the 5lb Milk Chocolate after having no issue's with Strawberry flavor. However, I'm finding that this flavor is clumping up a bit. It's store in a cool location and I only mix with cold water. Other wise, I think the product is excellent.
