WHAT IS CASEIN POWDER?
Casein is a type of dairy protein found in cows milk. It is a high quality, bioavailable protein that contains all the essential amino acids. Unlike whey protein, which is rapidly digested, casein is slowly digested and absorbed. This because casein is not very soluble in water, and this makes the protein the clump together to firm spheres called micelles. Our bodies take longer to digest and absorb casein protein micelles than it does whey protein. This slow digestion of casein provides a sustained release of amino acids into the blood stream, which in turn provides the building materials for muscle repair and growth.
HOW DOES CASEIN POWDER WORK?
When we eat protein we digest it into individual amino acids. Our body uses these amino acids to build vital proteins within our body including muscle tissue, collagen and connective tissue, biological enzymes and hormones. Casein is more slowly digested than other proteins due to its tendency to clump together. This provides a slow release of amino acids, fuelling and building muscles over an extended period of time.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CASEIN POWDER?
The benefits of casein powder come from being slowly digested and absorbed. This is ideal for people who have a long time between protein meals and for those who want to maximise muscle building overnight. Our body likes to keep a ready supply of free amino acids in our blood stream to provide the building blocks of numerous structures, enzymes and hormones. To keep this supply of amino acids up, our body will break down muscle tissue if we are not supplying a steady stream of amino acids by eating foods that contain protein. The slow digestion of casein powder provides a steady stream of amino acids over a longer period of time. For this reason, casein powder has the following benefits: Casein powder keeps you feeling full for longer. Casein powder increases muscle growth overnight. Casein powder decreases muscle loss when there is an extended time between meals. Casein powder improves sleep.
CASEIN POWDER VERSUS WHEY PROTEIN
Both casein powder and whey protein powder have their benefits. Those that serious about maximizing muscle and strength gains would benefit from taking both. While WPI is better to take immediately after training, casein powder is better to take when you have a long time between meals or to maximise gains overnight. Casein will keep you feeling full for longer.
WHAT DOES CASEIN POWDER TASTE LIKE?
Casein powder is very different to whey protein, so don’t expect it to taste the same as your usual WPI or WPC protein shake. Because casein naturally clumps together it feels thicker in the mouth, and it can sometimes feel a little lumpy. It is this texture that provides the point of difference of, and benefits of casein. VPA casein powder comes in four delicious flavours; chocolate, vanilla, banana and iced coffee. Please be aware that the coffee flavour contains caffeine equivalent to 20mg per serve.
HOW MUCH IS A SERVE OF CASEIN POWDER?
A scoop of our casein powder is 30g and this is one serve. Each bag of casein powder contains 33 serves. If accuracy is important to you, we recommend weighing your protein to obtain the most accurate serve. This is because protein powders can settle over time, and each scoop may weigh slightly different.
WHAT SHOULD I MIX CASEIN POWDER WITH?
Casein can be mixed with water, dairy milk, or milk substitutes. For people dieting or counting macros, please be aware that our product nutrition panels do not take into account the nutritional content of what you mix your protein with. You can mix your protein with as much or as little liquid as you choose depending on your personal preference. We provide guidelines on our packaging.
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE CASEIN PROTEIN POWDER?
Casein powder can be taken at any time, including in the morning, as a snack, or after a workout. It is ideal to take when you know it will be a long time until your next protein meal. As a night time protein to maximise muscle gain overnight, casein should be taken about 30 minutes before you go to bed.
DOES CASEIN POWDER IMPROVE SLEEP?
Taking casein powder before bed can improve your sleep quality. Studies have shown that diets high in protein can improve sleep quality, so taking casein can increase your protein intake and improve your sleep. For those on a calorie deficit, casein powder can keep hunger at bay before bed, helping you fall asleep and stopping you from waking up hungry. In addition, casein contains tryptophan, and amino acid which has been demonstrated to improve sleep quality.
WHAT IS THE BEST WHEY CASEIN BLEND PROTEIN POWDER?
Most ready to drink casein powders come as a blend. This is because pure casein powder would be extremely thick, would not mix well, and would have an uncomfortable texture in the mouth. For this reason, most casein powders will be mixed with whey protein concentrate, or whey protein isolate, or both to make it more palatable. Our casein powder is a blend of whey and casein powder.
WHAT IS THE BEST CASEIN POWDER FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
The best casein powder for weight loss is one that does not contain any added carbohydrate or fillers. Casein is a useful protein powder for weight loss because it is slowly digested. When used as part of a meal or in between meals, it keeps you feeling satiated and full, and you are less likely to feel hungry. This is particularly important for those on a calorie restricted diet who are trying to lose fat while maintaining or building muscle mass. VPA casein is a mix of pure whey protein concentrate and casein and contains 23.6g of protein per serve. The carbohydrate content of our casein powder is only 0.9g per serve, and the fat content is 1.5g. This makes VPA Micellar Casein powder the best protein for weight loss.
CAN I USE CASEIN POWDER WHEN PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
