What is Casein Protein?
100% Micellar Casein is formulated using premium grade micellar casein powder. It is considered the perfect shake for those who need a slow releasing protein to take before bed. Micellar Casein delivers a slow sustained release of aminos to the muscles whilst you sleep, therefore better aiding recovery and growth.
How is 100% Micellar Casein Different From Normal Milk Protein?
100% Micellar Casein from TPW™ is also the first micellar casein product to be enhanced with patented AMINOGEN® enzyme technology which studies show can aid protein uptake. This unique formulation makes 100% Micellar Casein nutritionally versatile and ideal for helping with everything from building lean muscle to lowering body fat.
How Does AMINOGEN® Patented Enzyme Technology Make TPW™'s Casein Better?
Every TPW™ product has been designed using the very latest sports nutrition technology and research. Our 100% Micellar Casein is no different. Unlike all other casein products on the market, Casein Protein is formulated with the breakthrough patented enzyme system, AMINOGEN®.
This revolutionary system helps your body to absorb even more free amino acids locked within 100% Micellar Casein. This in turn helps build lean muscle, increase lean body mass, decrease body fat and support vital body functions. In essence, AMINOGEN® is formulated to make your 100% Micellar Casein even more effective, and at no extra cost!
How Can Micellar Casein Protein Help Muscle Recovery?
100% Micellar Casein is widely used by strength, speed and power athletes before bed. This is because micellar casein has a very different absorption rate to other proteins, like whey, and is instead slowly absorbed by the body. This unique property of 100% Micellar Casein means having it before bed helps to essentially drip feed protein and amino acids to the muscles throughout the 7-9 hours you are sleeping. This in turn can vastly improve your night-time recovery, as well as the repair and regrowth of the muscles.

Q. Is all casein protein the same, regardless of which brand it is?
A. As with so many things in life, if you don't ask the right questions, you won't get the right answers! The quality of protein can vary significantly and therefore the protein content will do too. In addition, just because a product may be called casein it doesn't mean that it only contains casein. We recommend you read the ingredients and nutritionals on the label to better understand exactly what you are buying. We can assure you that our 100% Micellar Casein is purely micellar casein.

We also provide a Protein Insight which gives a complete breakdown of the types and quantities of protein contained in the product, and finally Product Testing which gives an up to date Certificate of Analysis which provides independent verification of the protein content
Q. What does "dry basis" and "as-is" mean when talking about protein content?
A. When you see a protein powder that states on the label the protein is given as "dry basis " this means that the moisture present in the powder is included in the total protein value. Moisture in dry protein powders are typically around 4%. However, when a protein supplement is stated "as-is" this means the actual protein content of the powder with the water content excluded. In other words, the true protein you will be consuming. As whey prices have increased significantly over recent years due to the large demand in the sports nutrition sector, some brands may not give you all the facts in regards to the true level of protein in their products. At TPW™, we believe in transparency to give you the utmost confidence when choosing your whey protein supplements. On all our protein products you will see both the as-is and dry-basis values declared. Once again, it's all about knowing what to look for.

Poor product from the protein works
Its good because it helps me feel energised the morning after a workout, keeps me full through the night and reduces my muscle soreness the following day, but the flavour (Vanilla) and mixability for me is a bit questionable.
To start with, I use milk and so would expect a vanilla taste, but cant notice one, although I am sure that is personal preference.
Secondly, it does not mix well for me. I have tried using all sorts of milk amounts in the shakes, and always end up with bits of powder, which are not great, but I drink it anyway as I want to see the results on muscle growth and be able to judge it on results as well as just recovery effect, taste and mixability to make it easier for you guys to make a decision as to whether or not to buy it or not.
A further review will follow soon assessing my results in terms of muscle growth to hopefully help you guys more, but so far, it isn't bad but has flaws for me
