The True Strength of Casein

Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times - including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take more than twice as long for our Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we've created a protein formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.

Beyond the Basics

  • Best-Selling Micellar Casein
  • Nearly 73% Protein by Weight (24 g Protein per 33 g Serving Size)
  • 24 grams of Slow-Digesting Micellar Casein per serving
  • Nearly 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) per Serving.
  • Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Every Scoop

Suggested Use

Directions:

Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Tip: Adjust the flavor and texture of your Gold Standard 100% Casein shake by varying the amount of liquid you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with a slightly thicker body and more sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a thinner, milder-tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid.

Blender: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Shake Up Your Shake: By adding fresh or frozen fruits. peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack Your Shake: Customize your Gold Standard 100% Casein shake by adding recovery products like Creatine, Glutamine, and BCAA powders.

Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.

Suggested Use: Consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For the best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Serving scoop included, but may settle to the bottom during shipping.

Expiration Date

The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.

Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.

Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Shipping Weight

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.
