Casein products are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents.
How does this protein differ to other types?
Casein protein is a very slowly released protein. Therefore, the release to your body and muscle is slower, leaving you feeling fuelled and fuller for longer. This protein is ideal for those who use before bed, as it will continue to fuel your muscles all night long.
