Micellar Casein is a, slow release protein derived from milk. It's absorbed slowly by the stomach allowing a tapered supply of amino acids to the muscle over a prolonged period of time. This makes Micellar Casein the ideal protein supplement for between meals and before bed. During sleep, the body is normally starved of nutrients as it is impractical to consume food and therefore, a slow release protein can be ideal for recovery throughout the night.
This protein source has a complete amino acid profile and contains branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Micellar Casein has 24g of protein per serving which will contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Micellar Casein is ideal for anyone engaged in a long term physical training plan where getting the right dietary balance is absolutely essential. It's also an excellent supplement to help increase daily protein intake. As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming before bed or between meals, 2-3 times per day.

I've had several whey protein powders from MP and they've all been pretty good. I assumed the casein would be good as well, but I was totally taken aback by how gross it is! I purchased the vanilla flavor and it totally lacks in flavor. The texture is not appetizing and even after shaking it vigorously there are still clumps. It also foams up so much that even when I put more water into the shaker bottle to drink the residue there is still foam. I dread it every night when I have to chug this chalky mess down. Which brings me to another point, the powder itself is "sticky". I have to dump the powder from the scoop to my bottle over a sink otherwise there is white stuff EVERYWHERE! I took this to the airport with me (bought it right before I was traveling) and I had to double wrap it to prevent the powder getting in my luggage too, the seal doesn't close well at all. At this point I'm trying to get through it as fast as I can just so I don't waste my money. I'll stick with the whey from now on :(Goes Well With:Your guess is as good as mine.
I love the Natural Chocolate, but it has been OOS for months. Neither the Vanilla nor the Unflavored are available any longer in the 5 or 11 pound bags. It appears that the Micellar Casein is going bye-bye. Hope not though!
The only complaint I have is the flavors. I love a good casien shake before bed and vanilla (currently all that's out) is a great option but I would like the possibility of switching things up when I feel the need to. Otherwise, great taste, mixability and all around product! Also price is great as usually! Keep it up MyProtein for all us broke college students out there trying to get enough protein in!Goes Well With:Cashew milk
2 scoops some milk, and I can get my nighttime protein snack. Awesome, I love it. My only wish would be to have chocolate to make chocolate mousseGoes Well With:milk
I love the regular protein and wanted to try the casein from Myprotein and what a disappointment. I still don't understand why they only offer vanilla or unflavored. the texture is extremely annoying to mix, the taste is very bland.Goes Well With:the trash
I was hoping this would be the standard Casein that I've experienced in the past from major retailers. However the protein powder is quite fine, resulting in a very thin mix. It's good for what it is, and if you don't have a preference for Casein, you'll get a good deal on some good protein.
I needed a better before bed protein source - This did it! Great vanilla taste and I don't usually do vanilla, but It was my only choice at the time. However, you must use more liquid with this powder or it will be thicker than most protein powders.Goes Well With:Milk
I've been happy with the Chocolate Smooth whey protein from MyProtein so I decided to give their Micellar Casein a try instead of the brand I'd been using. I chose the Natural Strawberry flavor which frankly just isn't very good. It has a very artificial taste (think strawberry Nestle Quik but worse). It is tolerable in milk however, so as off-putting as the taste is my primary complaint is the consistency. Unlike all other Micellar Casein brands I've tried this one is very powdery like powdered sugar. Other brands have all been more granular like cocoa powder. The end result is that it tends to make a mess as dumping a scoop into your cup sends it flying everywhere. In addition, this stuff is ridiculously foamy which came as a surprise since no other brand I've used has been foamy at all. The bottom line is that I won't be purchasing the Micellar Casein again.
Love this stuff but PLEASE BRING BACK CHOCOLATE FLAVORGoes Well With:I mix with water and mixes up great!
Flavor is pretty good. More foamy and a little harder to mix than other brands. Main complaint is that chocolate has been out of stock for a while now. Waiting until chocolate is restocked to under more Goes Well With:Water
Pre bed protein. Keeps me full and asleep. Goes Well With:Coconut Milk
I was disappointed to find that this product contained soy as I am desperately trying to avoid any soy containing products. I will be switching to a different brand of casein.
I ordered the Natural Vanilla. Flavor is fine and it mixes well, but it gets way too foamy. Doesn't matter what I mix it with - milk, water - it ends up becoming 50% liquid and 50% foam in my shaker cup. My big complaint is the texture of the powder. It is so fine, like baby powder, that it sticks to the scoop, doesn't poor well, and is incredibly messy. Just opening and closing the bag (which is near impossible to seal) spreads powder everywhere. Definitely the strangest and messiest casein I've purchased.Goes Well With:Milk
I take casein before my workouts and before bed(with lowfat milk). The mixability is decent, but can clump(just stir it in the liquid a bit first to avoid clumping BEFORE shaking). It is pretty good tasting, very chalky and a bit sticky(typical of casein). I like it and will continue ordering!Goes Well With:Any milk, water
Banana flavour is the bomb, and it mixes really well. I like it even better than the Impact Whey.Goes Well With:Cashew Milk, Coco Powder.
I use to buy ON's casein a lot. Both the natural and the regular, as well as all of their varying qualities. The taste and mixability of ON's casein doesn't even compare to myproteins casein. It seemed like myproteins casein required less water to get a thinner consistency than ON's casein did, which in my opinion is rather desired. Plus the strawberry flavor even taste like strawberry milkshakes to me, making it much easier to drink. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is because it seems they currently don't sell the 11lb bag of casein protein, which was an amazing deal on the price when they had it. Please bring the 11lb bag back, best deal around!Goes Well With:Water? Haven't tried it with milk yet, but using almond milk worked just as well as water for me.
Great quality. Especially for the price!Goes Well With:Milk or water
When I tried MyProtein's Whey Protein, I was extremely impressed. It is the best tasting whey protein I've ever had (smooth chocolate). Casein tends to taste even better than whey protein. So naturally, I thought this product would taste insanely good. Not quite the case. MyProtein's casein still tastes great, but it's similar to their whey protein. Another brand's casein tastes insanely good, but costs 3x as much. I'll stick with MyProtein for value for the money. Granted, I only mix my casein with milk (1%) and nothing else. If I mixed some peanut butter or anything else in, it'd be a wash between this casein and another one. Taste is a solid 9/10 as far as protein powders go. There is a bit of grittiness to the texture, similar to if you added hot chocolate mix to something... it's not bad at all. Overall this protein represents extremely good value. I will be buying again for sure.Goes Well With:Milk
Excellent product: good miscibility, good taste, great effect, good gains! It is a must haveGoes Well With:Almond milk / soy milk / water
I bought the micellar casein in natural vanilla flavor and all I can say is that it's a high quality product that you won't regret buying. It mixes pretty well for casein, and the flavor is decent. If you're looking for something that tastes incredible, this isn't for you. That being said, if you're not totally dedicated to making actual gains, this product also isn't for you. Just buy it and drink it.Goes Well With:Water
