Micellar Casein Overview

Casein protein is a slower digesting protein source that is prized for its slow amino acid release.  Micellar Casein is a protein that is processed in a way to keep its structure in tact, forming small micelles of protein. This is a high priced protein source, so again blends and cheap proteins probably don’t contain much Micellar Casein per scoop. Casein has been shown to be not as anabolic as whey, but is still a viable source for protein and is often used in conjunction with whey to provide a longer stream of amino acids.  Micellar Casein is a good source of protein, but it doesn’t typically mix well and is quite expensive compared to whey concentrate.
