a good casein
So I have always just bought straight whey protein, I have been buying nutra pro man I love the taste of it and that I can mix it with just a spoon.....I have never bought a casein protein but am looking for one. To take before bed can you guys help pick the best pre bed casein...thanks

Try the TrueBasics Casein at trutein. It's 80% micellar casein, 20% whey both from milk isolate/concentrate. It mixes great and tastes good too, and is a great value. Better than ON Casein IMO. Check out the reviews in the Truetein sub-forum.

American Pure Whey is where I got my last 2 lbs from. I have a contact over there too because the site doesn't list this product but they carry it. THey ship from NC too so if you are on the east coast it's a big plus.
I'm a whey isolate user and have been for years. I used to buy from ATW, but they are in shambles right now and Nutribio has too many inconsistencies in thier product. When I talked to a rep at Nutrabio I was simply told they would let somebody know of my concerns, needless to say I don't order from those guys anymore.
American Pure Whey mixes well, but keep in mind, if you are a whey drinker, casein is going to be on the chalky and thick side to you. I mix mine with pineapple juice and soy milk and I love the flavor. I buy the plain chocolate. PM me and I'll give you the guy's email address and cell. He sells me 20lbs of whey isolate (choc) and 2 lbs of pure casien for 149.99 and it is free shipping. The casien is 19.99 by itself. It does eliminate that enormous morning hunger you get when all you take is whey and you got 8 hours of quality recovery sleep. I only take 25 grams a night about an a half an hour before bed and I wake up a little hungry, but not even close to what I had before. I never wake up at 3am to piss and want to eat anymore either, which did happen when I only took whey protien.
My gains stay decently consistent, so I'm not sure how much it benefited, but I feel like it helps me keep a positive nitrogen balance (because my lack of hunger) while I sleep which has to mean more muscle packed on, so it might be small, but it is worth it.

hey thanks for the nod MM11. Yep, we have casein - 6lbs for 45 bucks. It's derived from complete milk protein so there's a tad bit of whey in there as well - most studies show most efficacy from a combo of whey + casein TBH.
our website is at TruNutrition. plus we got a sale beginning wednesday for tha labor day wknd

I love N2matrix, mixes well and actually tastes awesome! I either throw in some non-fat yogurt (flavor to your liking) and it's G2G!

Try a brand called Muscle Feast they sell Micellur Casien at $35 for 5lbs and I have been
useing it for the past 5 months and I have no complaints. I mix 1 scoop with 1 scoop of
flavored whey isolate and I am good to go.

I have some of the muscle feast. Great quality and price. I didn't like the unflavored it gets old fast. I keep it around when I run out of trutein and use nutrapro for flavor. The trunutrition casein mixes easily with a spoon. The only casein I've ever tried I could mix with a spoon.

I used Optimum Casein protein, but I have noticed after a couple of uses I got constipated. Not sure if its my body or the product. I haven't tried casein protein since and just stick to whey.

The only casein I have tried is a blend and it tastes delicious. It is Xtreme Formulations Ultra Peptide 2.0 Cinnamon Roll.

Ultra Peptide is the go to whey/casein blend. Beverly UMP is the only other option I'd consider. When it comes to protein (and all supplements) it is just as much about the quality of the raws and their place of origin as it is about what is claimed to be on the supp facts.

If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

its really funny how someone looks for casein and then gets a blend...
imo if you want a blend, pay for casein only and add your own whey to it..
any manufacturer adding whey to casein and then pushing it as the go-to casein product is misleading ...seriously, only a few reasons to formulate a blend rather than all-casein ( cost, flavoring, mixability - all common problems associated with casein) Any other 'reason' they product is pure bs, simple as that
stick to a product that gives you 100% micellar casein
