Protein release for 7 hours 

Micellar Casein is a unique and slowly digesting protein, which creates a release of nutrients to the muscles over a period of about 7 hours. This makes it the perfect protein shake to use before you go to sleep, or to use on resting days. However, this protein is also suitable to use after exercise and between meals. And it is ideal for a protein diet.

Micellar Casein from Power Supplements, with an average protein content of 85%, is one of the cheapest micellar caseins in Europe. The price is even so low that the price per gram of protein is comparable to the price of cottage cheese, which is also a source of micellar casein. However, the disadvantage of cottage cheese is that you need a lot of it, and that it contains a lot of lactose (milk sugar) and on top of that doesn't always taste very good. Micellar Casein comes in seven delicious flavors, and there's a natural variety. In many ways it's an excellent alternative to cottage cheese.

The advantages of Micellar Casein from Power Supplements at a glance:

  • Supports muscle building in combination with intense weight training.
  • Inhibits muscle deterioration when exercising, when on a reduced calorie diet or after a missed meal.
  • Due to the slow release of nutrients it is the the ideal protein to take prior to sleep.
  • Could reduce fat storage with weight gain.
  • Reduces the feeling of hunger more than other protein powders.
  • Releases less insulin compared to the more popular 'whey protein', which makes it better suited for maximizing fat burning.
  • Contains high levels of biologically available calcium, which can contribute to a decrease in body fat while preserving muscle tissue.

Quality

This Micellar Casein is a high quality protein isolate from milk, which has been obtained by means of a non-denaturing process. The natural form of the milk proteins is thereby maintained.

Production takes place in Western Europe.

The protein in this supplement consists of 92% micellar casein and 8% whey protein.

Micellar casein has several special features:

  • Prolonged release of amino acids
  • Rich in essential amino acids (EAA)
  • Rich in branched chain amino acids (BCAA)
  • Rich in calcium
  • Proteins and minerals are optimally available from the micellar form

Composition

Average amino acid profile (percentage of protein):

- Alanine 2.9%
- Arginine 3.4%
- Aspartic acid 6.7%
- Cystine 0.5%
- Glutamic acid 21.2%
- Glycine 1.7%
- Histidine 2.7%
- Isoleucine 4.7% *
- Leucine 8.7% *
- Lysine 7.4%
- Methionine 3.3%
- Phenylalanine 4.7%
- Proline 10.1%
- Serine 5.3%
- Threonine 4.3%
- Tryptophan 1.2%
- Tyrosine 5.1%
- Valine 6.0% *
* = BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids)

Additional information about the protein content

Raw material produces traditionally indicate the protein content in protein powders based on dry weight. Providers of protein supplements then use this information for their product specifications. 

Protein powders, however, are not completely dry. For example, a filtered micellar casein usually contains about 4-5% moisture. In reality, the content of protein in Micellar Casein is therefore about 4-5% lower than the 85.5 to 88.0% protein which is determined based on dry weight. 

For Micellar Casein (natural) the protein content based on dry weight is 88%. After adjustment of 4-5% for moisture content, we detect at a protein content of 83-84%.

For all flavors of Micellar Casein, except for natural, about 3% aroma and sweetener has been added. The protein percentage in dry form is about 85.5%. After correction for moisture content the corrected protein content percentage equals about 82.5%. There is some variation here because different flavors contain different amounts of aroma (see table below).
