Overview

What is Micellar Casein?

Micellar Casein is the purest form of casein protein available on the market. Produced using a low temperature microfiltration process ensures that the finished casein protein maintains its natural ‘micellar’ structure as it is found in milk. This means that the casein forms a ‘gel’ like substance in the stomach making it ultra slow digesting; the slowest digesting protein available. This supplement is great before bed and at times when the body will be fasted for a number of hours as it drip feeds the muscle with vital amino acids. It has been shown to keep blood amino acid levels elevated for up to seven hours.

How does Micellar Casein differ from Milk Protein?

Milk protein is made up of a mixture of both casein and whey protein fractions in the ration 80:20. This is the ratio that is naturally found in milk. This makes Milk Protein a natural tapered release as the whey is quickly absorbed whilst the casein is absorbed over a number of hours. Micellar Casein contains only casein protein as the whey has been totally removed and it is therefore digested more slowly than milk protein.

How does Micellar Casein differ from Calcium Caseinate?

Calcium Caseinate is casein protein which has been separated from skimmed milk with the use of an acid. This means that the final protein is not in its natural micellar structure, the protein is effectively denatured. Micellar Casein on the other hand is in its natural bioactive form, meaning it is a higher quality protein and more bioavailable.

What performance benefits does Micellar Casein provide?

Protein is fundamental to any athlete or training enthusiasts nutrition. It is essential for growth and repair of all cells, including muscle cells, and it is therefore necessary in order to experience training adaptations. As an ultra-slow digesting protein Micellar Casein 85 is ideal for providing the muscles with a sustained supply of amino acids to promote recovery and protein synthesis during sleep and fasted periods.

What's special about your Micellar Casein 85?

As with all our dairy proteins, Micellar Casein 85 is sourced directly from a leading European dairy and produced using milk from European cows, meaning it is fully traceable and of the highest quality available on the market today. All our ingredients pass our thorough in-house checks, before being blended, packed and sealed in our industry-leading production facility. We perform regular spot-checks and independent product testing to ensure the product that you receive is of the highest standards. The official Certificate of Analysis for this product can be found at the top of the page.

What goes well with Micellar Casein 85?

Micellar Casein 85 is a slow release protein best taken before bedtime. Also ensure your morning and post workout protein is covered with a fast releasing whey protein, such as GN 100% Whey. We recommend Creatine Monohydrate to further boost lean muscle gains, size and strength.

Q&A

What is the difference between micellar casein and milk protein?

Micellar casein is 100% casein protein whereas milk protein contains approximately 80% casein and 20% whey, a similar ratio to that found in natural milk. Both are considered slow release proteins though micellar casein will be slower as it is 100% casein protein.

How does micellar casein mix and taste compared with milk protein?

As an advanced protein which is designed for function Micellar Casein's texture is not as smooth as milk protein, however taste is relatively similar.

Why should I take micellar casein instead of whey protein?

Micellar casein is 100% casein and is a slow release protein. This makes it perfect for between meals and before bed to give your body a sustained release of protein. Whey protein is better taken before and after training when an instant ‘hit’ is required.

Why do I need to take micellar casein protein?

Protein is essential for muscle growth, recovery and repair after intense training. It is difficult to achieve sufficient levels of protein through whole foods alone, therefore we recommend a protein supplement such as Micellar Casein 85.

How much protein is in Micellar Casein 85 compared to whey protein?

Micellar Casein 85 will provide 81g of protein (as-is) per 100g. This is slightly more than a standard 80% whey protein concentrate.

Is this supplement OK for people with lactose intolerance?

This protein supplement is derived from milk and as such contains lactose at approximately 6%. As an alternative we recommend Go Whey Isolate 90™ which only contains very small amounts of lactose (2%), or Soy Protein Isolate 90 which is lactose free.

What are the benefits of a slow release protein like this?

A slow release protein like this one ensures a prolonged supply of vital amino acids and nutrients meaning muscles remain fuelled for up to 7 hours. This makes Micellar Casein perfect before fasted periods, such as bed time.

Suggested Use

Add one heaped large scoop (30g) of Micellar Casein to 250ml of water in your GN™ Blender Bottle. Shake and consume immediately. Use less liquid for a thicker and stronger tasting shake. Use milk for a creamier tasting shake.

We recommend one serving 30-60 minutes before bed to deliver a sustained supply of protein whilst you sleep. Can also be consumed between meals as required. Experts suggest a minimum 1g of protein per pound of body weight daily to promote lean muscle growth.

Large GN™ Scoop included.
