BULK POWDERS™ Micellar Casein is a premium source of Micellar Casein, with a fantastic 85% protein content. The milk is ultra-filtered skimmed milk which has high protein. Micellar Casein has an impressive amino acid profile, containing BCAAs.
Unlike whey, Micellar Casein is a slow-releasing protein. Being pH sensitive, casein coagulates in the acidic environment of the stomach, therefore taking longer to break down. Micellar Casein is popular to consume pre-bed and during the day, when you may not eat for a prolonged period of time.
Micellar Casein boasts an 85% protein (based on unflavoured), making it a high in protein. Containing only 0.9g of carbohydrate and lactose adds to the excellent nutritional profile. We have chosen a premium Micellar Casein to ensure you get a clean flavour profile as well as a great texture.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I add this powder to protein shakes?
Yes, Micellar Casein mixes well with other protein supplements such as whey protein and pea protein. Due to the fact it is derived from the curds of the milk, the appearance is a lot thicker than many other types of protein and therefore, you will need to carefully measure the amount of water and powder to ensure you get a smooth consistency. Blending Micellar Casein with Whey Protein will provide both slow and fast digesting proteins.
Can I take Micellar Casein if I am lactose intolerant?
Micellar Casein is derived from cow’s milk and therefore contains a small amount of naturally occurring lactose (approximately 0.9g per serving). If you are extremely intolerant to lactose, we would recommend consuming an alternative source of protein.
How does micellar casein contribute to muscle mass?
Micellar Casein is 100% Casein which is a main constituent of milk, making up almost 80% of the total protein content in cow’s milk. Like whey protein, it is high in protein and contains a range of essential amino acids – although the amino acid profiles varies considerably. This isn’t the only difference either - where whey protein is fast digesting in the gut, casein is a lot more viscous and for this reason, has a lot slower release. This making it perfect for a pre-bed supplement. Micellar Casein is produced using a low temperature, microfiltration process to ensure it is high in protein. This high protein content will contribute to a growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
