Gold Standard Casein is a slow-acting protein which may be beneficial throughout the day or before bedtime when your body goes hours without food. Casein is one of the proteins found in milk, along with whey. It is a rich source of essential and non-essential amino acids.
What Does Gold Standard Casein Do?
Gold Standard Casein Protein provides 24g of anticatabolic 100% Micellar Casein per serve along with 10g of BCAAs, Glutamine and Glutamine precursors. Casein proteins are acid (pH) sensitive and gel (thicken) in the stomach resulting in a more prolonged time frame for caseins to be broken down into their subcomponents than whey and other proteins.
Due to the unique time-released qualities of caseins, Gold Standard Casein provides anti-catabolic, muscle-protecting properties.
What's the Best Gold Standard Casein Flavor?
You certainly can't go wrong with any of the Gold Standard Casein flavours. Though Chocolate and Vanilla are always the most popular flavours in any protein powder range, the Choc Peanut Butter flavour profile has been expertly crafted by the research and development team at Glanbia.
Gold Standard Casein for the Lactose Intolerant?
Each serve of Gold Standard Casein providers approximately 1 gram of sugar in the form of lactose, making it suitable for most people suffering with lactose intolerance. Research by the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that individuals with lactose intolerance can consume up to 13 grams of lactose spread throughout the day with negligible symptoms.
How to Use Gold Standard Casein
Mix 1 heaping scoop (32g) with 10-12oz (300-350ml) of water or your favourite beverage. Consume Gold Standard Casein immediately before bed and in between meals when delayed protein delivery is required.
