Gold Standard Casein is a low-calorie sustained-release protein powder that may be taken before bed to improve muscle recovery and body composition. This product is low in carbohydrates and fats, and contains aminogen (protease) to enhance protein breakdown and improve bioavailability. Casein is derived from dairy and is rich in essential amino acids with a high proportion of leucine, perfect for supporting lean muscle gain.

Gold Standard Casein Protein provides 24g of Micellar Casein per serve, naturally rich in BCAAs. Casein proteins are acid (pH) sensitive and gel (thicken) in the stomach, resulting in a prolonged absorption time. This is because it takes longer for casein protein to be broken down into its amino acid, dipeptide and tripeptide pieces which are then absorbed. 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?
All of the Gold Standard Casein flavours are well balanced, delivering just the right amount of flavour without being too sweet or rich. Chocolate and Vanilla are the most popular flavours at Sporty's Health, which have 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 people 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.
