Cellucor Cor-Performance Casein is a pure casein protein supplement in powdered form. It is an excellent protein powder for slow digesting daily snacks and bedtime protein shakes.

Cellucor Cor-Performance Casein comes in only two flavors, and in one single package - 30 servings per package.
The nutritional content of the flavors is given in the following table:
|Calcium||60% RDA||60% RDA|
|Iron||10% RDA||2% RDA|
Both flavors are gluten-free and have no saturated and no trans fats. They are also very low in cholesterol and sodium.
Cellucor Cor-Performance Protein is an excellent source of lean, slow-digesting casein protein and calcium, with iron being more abundant in Chocolate flavor.
Both flavors taste good (nothing amazing - this is casein powder, remember?), but Chocolate flavor is IMHO better for powder+water shakes. Vanilla, on the other hand, mixes very well with other foods like berries and other fruits and can be used to increase slow-digesting protein content in other meals.
Both flavors are excellent for shakes and smoothies with various nuts (walnut, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, etc. - nuts can be used to increase the amount of healthy fats and fibers), peanut butter, cocoa, low fat and cottage cheese, and similar.
Due to low carbs content, it can be used on low carbs and even keto diets, since 1-2 servings per day can significantly increase protein intake, with minimal increase in carbs intake.
Both flavors mix well in the shaker, especially when plastic/metal mesh is used. Also, both flavors are easy on the stomach.
For people with cravings for sweets, Chocolate flavor is an excellent, guilt-free, solution - when the craving for sweets, especially chocolate, just add a serving of powder in a shaker, add water and enjoy it. Powder is cheaper than chocolate protein bars and have minimum impact on daily carbs/fats intake, although many protein bars taste much better than Cellucor Casein.
Long story short - this is a very good 100% casein protein powder. It mixes well, has very low amounts of fats and carbs and it is easy on the stomach. Flavor - it could be better, but it is OK - it is not like eating chalk, sand, or anything similar :) One of my favorite casein supplements!
