Naked Nutrition Micellar Casein Protein

Naked Nutrition Micellar Casein Protein is an exceptionally high-quality casein protein supplement in powdered form. It is derived from milk from US farms, and it is non-GMO product which is also soy free, gluten free, growth hormone free, and contains no rBGH (or rBST).

It is manufactured via cold, acid-free and bleach-free process - no heavy metals or any other similar pollutants.

And it is anything but budget friendly casein protein :)

Note: rBGH (Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone) or rBST (Recombinant Bovine Somatotropin) is a genetically engineered artificial hormone injected into dairy cows to make them produce more milk - it is still allowed in US, but it is forbidden in countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, Argentina and in the European Union because of its dangers.

 Vanilla flavor and unflavored casein powders have, according to the available data, the same amino acid profiles, while Chocolate flavor has slightly more protein per serving and thus has slightly different amino acid profile.

Obviously, Unflavored 'flavor' has the highest protein content per gram of powder of all three flavors - not to surprise, since it is pure casein powder with nothing else.

Naked Nutrition Micellar Casein Protein doesn't contain lecithin (commonly from soy and/or sunflower), which is often found in casein supplements - lecithin aids in mixing casein powder with water.

Thus, Naked Micellar Casein does not mix easily in shaker - forget glass and spoon! For the best results, use small hand blender - it will mix the powder thoroughly with water, milk or any other ingredient without clumps and without much foam.

Some users claim that this product mixes easily - well, when compared with Optimum Nutrition Casein, it does not mixes easily!

Taste is acceptable - most people take casein powder and mix it with water prior bed and drink it without too much complicating things. Such bedtime shake is slowly digesting meal that feeds the body for at least, next 7-8 hours. And amounts of additional sugar or fats is minimal - excellent for people on low-calorie and Keto diets. Even people trying to gain weight can significantly benefit from regular taking casein powder before going to sleep.

Note that casein protein thickens shakes and smoothies, so it takes some time to learn to add right amount of water.

Other than for plain bedtime shakes, Naked Nutrition Micellar Casein Protein is excellent for mixing with other foods like fruits, oats, milled nuts, peanut butter and for increasing protein content in meals throughout the day, like in protein pancakes, ice creams, homemade slow-digesting protein bars etc.

Price - if there is something not so good with Naked Nutrition Micellar Casein Protein, than it is his price. This casein supplement costs almost double the price of most budget friendly and much more popular casein supplements.
