    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.

    Do this, best casein on the market hands down.

    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.

    I would say using the whole protein that has whey in it is not a blend, just not a refined casein protein that is bound with calcium or something of the like. I have used products from truscience and they are 100% legit and also cost effective, something that is rare when it comes to protein.

    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

    I'm sorry, this has a lot to do with ignorance, no offense, about how proteins are manufactured. Do some reading at trusciences website, you may be surprised what you learn. Pure casein tastes like crap and has the consistency of cottage cheese... because that is what it is! Do as you like, just make sure when you make a comment as such there is more than broscience behind it. Pardon the rant, I just get a bit irritated when comments are made off the hip without any basis of fact behind them.

    I wouldn't call it a blend, no.

    It's Complete Milk Protein Isolate + Concentrate (50/50). The naturally-occuring breakdown within Complete Milk Protein is 80 casein/20 whey, but it is by-and-large a casein product with a little bit of naturally occuring whey.

    As oufinny mentioned, complete milk protein has a much better taste and texture than caseinates or fully extracted mic. casein.

    really? maybe you need to lay off the sauce...

    Formulating a 100% mc product is not easy, true. Maybe instead of trying harder, its easier to add whey to their casein product, improves their bottom line in the same process. I've had two different brands of 100% mc and instantized, they are not that bad. Add more water, or add your own flavoring. Maybe you're just a pansy who can't take it?...yeah no offence lol...
