Why

Gold Standard Casein uses the very best form of milk protein, micellar casein, to deliver a slow infusion of protein to the body which ensures muscles are fed over extended periods of time thus limiting muscles being broken down by the body for energy. This makes Gold Standard Casein is a perfect protein if used at night or if dieting due to its ability to keep you satiated.

When

Most people will definitely use one serving at night and this can be a strategy employed year round. At the same time you can enjoy this any time of the day and still benefit from its superb nutritional profile.

Who

For individuals seeking gains in muscle or looking to burn fat and preserve muscle when dieting. It also is ideal for those looking for a milkshake like texture from their shake.

Product Guide

How it Works

Predator Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein Review

Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard Whey is the undoubted market leader when it comes to whey proteins and their Gold Standard Casein is the best when it comes to slow-digesting proteins designed to extend the period of time during which nutrients are released to the body. This is important for the following reasons:

  • For dieting, a slow release rate aids satiation and so prevents hunger
  • At night, when you would otherwise not eat for 8-10 hours, using Gold Standard Casein allows you to feed your muscles nutrients while asleep preventing muscle breakdown and thus leading to more net muscle protein synthesis

Indeed, research has shown that providing casein at night is a superior strategy to providing whey protein and this fact, together with Gold Standard Casein's utilisation of the highest quality micellar casein, not to mention the fabulous taste, makes this product a winner in our book.

Optimum Nutrition deservedly win a lot of plaudits for Gold Standard Casein. Where other brands use inferior milk protein sources such as calcium caseinate, Optimum Nutrition have chosen to make this a pure micellar casein product which puts the quality at a level above most of the other contenders in the burgeoning market for slow release proteins. 

Casein proteins have a reputation for being chalky, unpalatable and something you have to grin and bear but Gold Standard Casein uses an ultra-fine micellar casein powder which mixes far easily and tastes an order of magnitude better. For someone looking for a protein which closely resembles a regular milkshake then this is as a good as it gets. 

It is not just about the taste though as Gold Standard Casein is higher in protein than poorer quality caseins as well as being lower in fat, sugar and lactose than a caseinate based milk protein. Indeed we have observed that many people who struggle to digest milk proteins seem to handle Gold Standard Casein fine.

With research indicating that the best nutritional strategy to maximise muscle growth is to combine highly anabolic whey proteins with anti-catabolic milk proteins, it makes a lot of sense to use this at night or any time when you would otherwise go without food for some time.

The first and best tasting casein product I tried

To date this is the only casein I have tried that tastes perfect whether it is mixed with water (perfect for a cut) or with milk (perfect for a bulk). A great product to sustain protein synthesis through the night and keep you anti-catabolic

At Last!!!

A casein that tastes nice with water. I use protein powders with water and so there is nowhere to hide as far as flavours go. You will have no issue with this at all.

good stuff

good stuff, it works well through the night to recover. but occasionally it kept me awake and in morning I felt tired from digesting it. would recommend though

Best night time protein

As a serious trainer I need a protein that will help keep me anabolic 24 hours a day and that means a night time protein. If you go through all the marketing from other companies it comes down to casein which matters and Gold Standard is the best on the market by a country mile.

Casein

Tried this and it tastes amazing and im waking feeling more energetic and i feel gains already after 2 weeks will definitely buying this again :)

Good product

Good product

Great anti-catabolic protein

Gold standard casein is great for using any time you have a gap between meals or at night. Slow digesting casein prevents muscle breakdown. I use Optimum's Casein as well as their whey and the stack of both has led me to have great results.

Casein

For me its a pretty good casein protein. Overall number 2 casein I have ever tried. Taste was Chocolate Supreme and for me it was average, but what matters is the contents. I used it for pre-night snack/food and I noticed that my recovery was better and I didn't feel so sore the day after. I would buy it again if it had more tastes like Peanut butter or Cookies and Cream. The price is also little bit high but you pay for quality.

Good product

Good tasting product and found it works really well! Good buy

good taste

i use this after training in the morning and before bedtime! verry thick soup, only taste is better then value! :-)

Great late night shake!!

Very nice late night shake for slow protein release. I will also use this (in the day) for times when I may not be able to eat quality food (travelling etc). Once mixed it's very thick so you have to add more water or milk which results in quite a large drink to consume, so if you have a weak-ish bladder it means a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Taste wise it's very nice. Has everything you need to pack on quality muscle mass.

At Last!!!

...A casein protein that tastes nice. I mix my proteins with water so there is nowhere to hide as far as flavour goes. Many caseins are just unpleasant with water. Not this one, I even use it for making protein pancakes etc...It tastes that good!

Great product. Would use again

Great product would use again. Excellent for those long days at work and you need energy. Personally used this when i was fasting, two scoops before sleeping and woke up fresh the next day and my energy levels was steady throughtout the day
