Micellar Casein is a protein powder that is slowly absorbed (up to 12 hours) and therefore supplies amino acids to the muscles over a long period of time. It is rich in naturally occurring branched-chain and essential amino acids (BCAAs and EAAs) and can assist in the maintenance and growth of muscle.
Pure Product Micellar Casein is completely undenatured, sourced from NZ grass-fed cows using ultra-filtration. It is naturally rich in Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and Essential Amino Acids (EAAs).
As a slow-release, anti-catabolic protein powder, Pure Product Micellar Casein is ideal consumed as a night protein (before bed), when your body typically goes for hours without food.
Casein products are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for the Micellar Casein to be broken down into its amino acid sub-components. Take casein protein in between meals to keep you satiated and feeling full.
By using premium Micellar Casein as a protein source, we've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.

DB=Protein Dry Basis
Micellar Casein is ideally taken before bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Mix 30 grams (1 scoop) with milk, juice or water. Adjust the amount of liquid to achieve your desired taste and caloric or protein requirements. Its thickness makes Casein perfect for a mousse.
Best results come from using Micellar Casein as well as other natural protein sources, ensuring every meal provides the body with an adequate protein supply.
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.
FORMULATED SUPPLEMENTARY SPORTS FOOD:
For healthy adults. It is not a sole source of nutrition and should be consumed in conjunction with a nutritious diet and an appropriate physical training or exercise program.

What is the difference between Whey (WPI, WPC) and Casein?
- The main difference between both proteins is the rate of digestion. Whey is rapidly digested and broken down to its amino acids, while casein is broken down and digested much slower, delivering to the body a slow sustained release of aminos (up to 12 hours) to the muscle.
- Casein protein has a much thicker consistency compared to any type of whey so it requires more water to be palatable.
