Gold Standard 100% Casein from Optimum Nutrition is a delicious protein shake mix delivering 24 grams of time-released protein per serving. This formula also features Aminogen® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization and over 5 grams of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) leucine, isoleucine and valine. Rapid protein use is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times, including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are acid-sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins.

Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Tip: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Casein™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a middle tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop.
Blender: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Shake Up Your Shake: By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches, etc.) peanut butter, flaxseed oil, yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients. Stack Your Shake: By adding supplements like Micronized Creatine, Glutamine, Taurine, and/or Instantized BCAA powders, you can make Gold Standard 100% Casein an even more powerful post-workout recovery product.
Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop if Gold Standard 100% Casein to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.
