About Casein Protein Powder

It takes a greater amount of time to digest casein protein compared to regular protein powders. This leads to sustained amino acid absorption over a longer period of time, supporting anabolic signalling in muscle. This unique process of delayed digestion and absorption makes casein products suitable for building and repairing lean muscle tissue, particularly during periods of fasting.


There are many types of casein, including calcium caseinate, micellar casein and milk protein concentrate, a composite of whey and casein as naturally found in whole milk. Bodybuilders typically use casein custards or casein protein products before bed to reduce muscle breakdown. Clinical research has proven that this is an effective strategy for enhancing muscle growth on a resistance training program.


The individual casein molecules are large and complex in structure, which is why they digest and absorb slowly. However, this can place additional stress on the digestive system, which may affect sensitive individuals or those with GUT health issues. For this reason, it is best to start with a small portion before bed before moving to a full serve. Alternatively, casein can be used just like a regular protein powder throughout the day. Casein-based protein powder shakes are more filling than other protein powders, which makes them useful as appetite suppressants when taken as a snack or to replace one meal per day.


It has been a long held contention that casein is inferior to whey protein when taken to support exercise recovery. Theoretically this makes sense, given the fact that we want a rapidly absorbed protein after exercise so that the amino acids get to muscle fast. In addition, the biological value of casein is lower than whey protein, and studies have indicated that it triggers less muscle protein synthesis than whey as well. However, research by the prestigious Journal of Sports Science and Medicine indicated that both types of protein deliver the same results when taken before and after exercise, which is good news for casein custard or casein protein enthusiasts.


Casein protein powder is a high quality product containing all of the essential amino acids, three of which are branched chain amino acids. One of these three BCAAs is the mTOR activator leucine. If you want to try a lighter casein, the calcium caseinate or micellar casein are better options, while milk protein concentrate or isolate will deliver the full sustained-release effect. Some casein formulations are designed to be mixed with minimal water in order to create a high protein custard, which works well as a delicious dessert or snack.
