Negative Reviews Seeded a Doubt
All the negative reviews about the new ON casein formula across various platforms made me doubt my purchase and look into other options but ultimately decided to experiment and opted for this one anyway, as Kaged Muscle Kasein wasn't available on Amazon. Tbh, not bad. Defo wasn't counterfeit for me, proper seal. High in protein and if prepared well, tastes good. Leaves a dry feel in the mouth after sipping as a shake but maybe because I used it with semi-skimmed milk. A little grainy even when blended for a while. Tried it as a pudding, so much better (recipe: 80g Skyr yogurt, scoop of casein, ~ 100 ml milk, dash of cocoa powder). Something about digesting it as a solid food appeals more... Went for creamy vanilla flavor as it's so much easier to make it into more flavors by simply adding cocoa powder or strawberries to the combo. Will try other brands but wouldn't mind returning to this one. Try & experiment yourself!
Better than the standard whey by the same mfr
Yes this is by far superior to the standard whey product which is a thin runny drink. The advised measures here make a small glass full about the size of a normal coffee and I find it best to leave it the fridge for a short time or sets like a blomonge.
I recommend this 100% to everybody that is looking for high quality casein.
This is great casein - I've always been a bit skeptical after reading from a few places about how this can be a carcinogen, but the study it's taken from is massively biased and not really applicable to humans. If you're after a supplement to take at night just so your body doesn't starve itself of proteins during synthesis while you're asleep, this is what you need. A lot of people take just whey during the day which is fine, but this is making sure you are never low on protein during your whole day cycle. I recommend this 100% to everybody that is looking for high quality casein. Now, the truth about Casein itself is pretty straightforward. The study was done on mice - not humans. It's true that Casein is a slow release protein and it does sit in the colon for a while, but that's true for anything honestly. If you eat or drink late at night, it will sit in your stomach for a good 8 hours (minimum) until you wake up. There's nothing wrong with that because the body has a natural suppressive effect on its own digestive system which occurs around 2am every morning. Also, Casein is made by heating up milk into a powder. Using lower quality milk from questionable places during this process will probably come with some side-effects but this is Optimum Nutrition - as long as they keep using high-standard ingredients everything will be fine. That being said, I have only ever trusted Casein from ON themselves, I just don't see the strong track record with other brands. If you're thinking about getting this you probably should. Don't cheap out - get the good stuff.

Great slow release protein
I purchased this particular type of protein as it is slow release and I wanted something I could consume before going to bed. Being slow release it will feed my muscles throughout the night whilst I sleep thus helping aid muscle repair. The flavour is great and the consistency is also good. This type of protein is slightly more grainy than normal whey, however a good shaker still gets it moderately smooth. All in all a great product that doesn't affect my stomach/digestion however price could be better. Update 01/10/2020 Product went off and developed a strange taste, Maybe a bad batch. Amazon customer service were fantastic and sorted it out right away.. I have used this product many times in the past and will continue to purchase it. I will put this experience down to a bad batch.. Hope this helps..

Optimum Nutrition products are great. The Casein Protein is good for taking before you sleep or first thing in the morning to last you throughout the day. Make sure you workout 3 days in the week or you have a hard working job otherwise you can gain unneeded weight. Thank you and best wishes.
Not a miracle worker but helps
I was buying the 450g version of this, but this seems better value for money. I found after a gym session I was craving chocolate and more hungrier than usual the next day. I was advised to try this product. I only drink it on the night after I've been to the gym. What I have found works for me is to mix 1 scoop with semi skimmed milk. As other reviewers have mentioned it is quite powdery so I mix it up with a fork (plastic one, like you get in a picnic set, so doesn't scratch the inside of the shaker) put in the fridge for a couple or few hours, quick shake and drink before going to bed. I have found I don't ache as much when DOMS sets in and helps suppress my appetite the next day, and I get my chocolate fix.

Protein powder that works, yep that’s right!
Ok there’s a lot of powders to choose from and I’ve tried a lot of them, expensive ones, cheap ones and so on. Well this powder is very fine and mixes instantly in my protein promaxx mixer bottle. It is easy to stomach, i really mean that, it really is nice to drink and I enjoy taking it. I always buy strawberry flavour and the flavour is very nice if you mix it correctly with the right amount of water. I am using this protein every day after training, before bed every day along with a bulk powders whey protein pure isolate 90 twice a day and a regular strength training program and a high density nutritional meal plan and I am obtaining actual visible gains. I am also lifting stronger as well. So with a good program and consistent use of this product I am seeing actual gains and enjoy drinking it and other bulk powders products. The price is ver6 reasonable and they often have offers on too. Highly recommended!
Great value for this size ( strawberry only )
This is a review for 2.5 kilo bag in strawberry flavour. The purchase price I paid was £22.94 when you consider currently a 1 kilo bag in other flavours costs a shade over £22 you can see that it's excellent value for money. For some reason strawberry always seems to be the poorer cousin to chocolate vanilla etc probably why this is the price it is. The product itself has a mild strawberry flavour which is not overly strong and does not linger in the mouth but when first mixing it has a chalky texture I have found it best if you mix your drink and then leave it a while then giving it a final shake it is a lot smoother drink without the chalky texture. The powder itself is very fine unlike a normal whey protein powder so I recommend mixing on a surface that is easily wiped down , as of yet I have not managed to get some dust residue either on the surface or on my hands. The recommended dosage is three times a day so what I do is use old Cola bottles and mix three drinks up stored in the fridge to simply get out and use as needed. I personally have seen muscle gains using this powder but as with all things it's a personal preference what works for some does not work for this at this price you cannot go wrong
Great value, unflavoured is perfect
I was very dubious about the flavour because of all the reviews but I decided to go with unflavoured and it turned out to be exactly that... No flavour whatsoever. You might get a slight taste of milk if mixing with water but as I mix with milk anyway it's just like drinking a thick glass of milk. I don't even blend or shake, I just stir thoroughly then let sit for a minute before gulping down. No issues whatsoever with the bag, so long as you knock down the powder that got stuck at the top during shipping you won't have any issues with the resealable strip, it can be finicky at first but you quickly get the hang of it. If the nutritional values are accurate then unflavoured not only have more protein but also less sugar... choice is obvious to me since I'm not looking to win a tasting competition but actually use a functional and good value supplement. Will be buying again no doubt!
