Gold Standard Casein is a slow-acting micellar casein protein enriched with aminogen to enhance bioavailability. Casein protein is much more slowly digested than whey protein, making it perfect to sustain amino acid levels over a longer period of time. Casein is derived from dairy and is a rich source of essential and non-essential amino acids, with a high proportion of branched chain amino acids.

What Does Gold Standard Casein Do?
Gold Standard Casein Protein provides 24g of anticatabolic Micellar Casein per serve, naturally rich in BCAA. Casein proteins are acid (pH) sensitive and gel (thicken) in the stomach resulting in a more prolonged absorption time, as it takes longer for casein protein molecules to be broken down into their amino acid, dipeptide and tripeptide constituents. Due to this unique time-release effect, casein proteins are suited to use before bed to support muscle protein synthesis and anabolism.
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.
