Premium Grade MIlk Protein

Milk Protein 85 from The Protein Works™ is a milk protein concentrate providing over 85% milk protein per 100g (dry basis). Milk Protein 85 concentrate powder contains a mix of micellar casein, whey proteins and bioactive proteins in the same ratio found in natural milk. Milk Protein 85 is produced using ultra low heat treatment to minimize any denaturing of the protein. It is the ideal protein source to take throughout the day and before bed due to the slow release nature of the protein source.


MIlk Protein Slow Release Protein

Milk Protein 85 provides the body with a combination of slow digesting casein and quick absorbing whey protein, ideal to keep muscles nourished and supported throughout the day and night. Research shows that if that drink is Whey Protein based (hydrolysed, isolate or concentrate) then it will be in and out of your system in a maximum of a couple of hours. This will still leave several hours where the body will be starving. Milk Protein forms a gel like substance in the gut and is absorbed over a 7 hour period, effectively giving the body something to feed off for the while of this period.

In addition, a growing bed of research suggests that consuming a Milk Protein shake (ie. a Whey/Casein blend) alongside a weight training regime can offer considerably greater muscle mass gains as opposed to consuming a whey protein shake alone without casein.Milk Protein 85 is available in both flavoured and unflavoured options. In its unflavoured state, it has a smooth, neutral creamy profile and represents a very versatile protein source for anyone looking to build high quality muscle.

The Expert's View of MILK PROTEIN 85

"The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states to support a strength or speed based workout routine athletes require 1.7grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day. Interestingly research conducted at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada later found that endurance athletes require a greater (or equal) intake of protein than strength athletes to prevent protein catabolism during exercise."

Research: Food, Nutrition and Sports Performance II: The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition (Ron Maughan et al, 2004).


Q. When should I take milk protein concentrate?

A. It depends on your lifestyle and goals, but because milk protein is a slow digesting protein it is ideally suited for use between meals and before bed.

Q.What does milk protein concentrate taste like?

A. Milk protein concentrate powder has a smooth creamy natural taste.

Q. How much protein should I take?

A. It is recommended that you consume between 2-5 servings per day, dependant upon your own personal needs. A serving would be classed as 30g (one scoop) of milk protein concentrate. It is recommended that you take 1g of protein per pound of body weight, so adjust your intake accordingly.

Q. Why do I need to take protein?

A. Consuming a protein shake can help muscle growth. It is a widely researched fuel that has been shown to help muscle growth, recovery and repair after intense exercise or workout.

Q. Is all milk protein concentrate 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 milk protein concentrate it doesn't mean that it only contains milk protein concentrate. 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 Milk Protein Concentrate 85 is purely milk protein concentrate. At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide the following information on all our protein products: 1. Product Profile - a complete overview of the product's background including our approval, location of manufacture and money back guarantee applicability. 2. Protein Insight - a complete breakdown of the types and quantities of protein contained in the product. 3. Product Testing - an up to date certificate of analysis which provides independent verification of the protein content

Q. How can I tell if the protein I use is a good quality protein?

A. Keys signs to look for are the level of protein declared on the label. Look for milk protein concentrate with a minimum 85% content.

Q. Does your flavoured milk protein concentrate contain artificial flavouring and colouring?

A. Most protein supplements on the market today are made using artificial flavours and colours. We are committed to maintaining purity in all our products which is why we only use all natural flavouring and colouring with absolutely nothing to hide. Not only is this kinder to your body, but it also gives a more natural and real taste to your shake.

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.

Q. Is milk protein suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

A. Milk Protein 85 is suitable for vegetarians, but it is not suitable for vegans.

Q. Is milk protein absorbed as quickly as whey protein?

A. No, milk protein is considered a slow release protein, so ideal to use within a blend of other proteins, or between meals or before bed.

Q. Can I take milk protein with other supplements?

A. The simple answer is yes. We recommend you always check serving instructions on each product if you plan on taking a combination of supplements.

Q. Can I take too much protein?

A. If you don't burn the excess calories that come with the additional protein, it may lead to increased body fat. No other side effects have been noted.

Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking milk protein concentrate?

A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from consuming milk protein concentrate.

Q. Do any foods contain milk protein concentrate?

A. No, there are no foods that contain milk protein concentrate. There are many foods that contain high levels of protein, such as red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs and cheese.

Q. What does milk protein concentrate actually do?

A. It gives your body a sustained slow release of protein that is low in fat and carbs at that vital time after you've exercised or during the night when your body is in a catabolic state.

Q. What is milk protein concentrate made up of?

A. Milk protein is a source of casein and whey proteins (80% casein, 20% whey protein).

Q. Is milk protein concentrate known by any other name?

A. Milk protein concentrate is often also referred to as micellar casein, milk protein or MPC.

Q. What effects should I expect from taking milk protein concentrate alongside my training regime?

A. Results vary depending on your diet, nutrition, training and individual body type. For an average individual, it can help increase lean muscle mass and support an increased metabolic rate. It can also aid reduced muscle breakdown post exercise and improved recovery times, as well as faster muscle repair post workout. In simple terms, you should be able to get back into the gym quicker for your next workout .

Q. Who should take / benefit from using milk protein concentrate?

A. Bodybuilders and strength athletes. Endurance athletes. Those on a controlled weight loss diet. Those new to weight training. People involved in team sports.

The strawberry and cream is much more palatable than whey protein in my opinion and gives a good release of protein over longer periods. I mix it with whey for maximum #GAINS

And trust me you'll want it, this is hands down the best whey I've used!
Milk protein is great for night time use or to hold you over if you are not going to be eating for a few hours, this product is a saver when cutting for its appetite suppressant effects. It can also be mixed with whey protein and Micellar Casein to provide a more varied blend of aminos for muscle building.

Choc mint is great for these milk based proteins, it would be nice to have a wider selection like the WPC 80 and 80SF though.

I have tried a number of different casein products in the past and this is one of the best. I ordered unflavoured and chocolate silk and the unflavoured is surprisingly my favourite! The chocolate is nice but a little bit sweet for my liking (they almost always are). The unflavoured can best be described as milk flavoured. I've tried mixing in both milk and water. Mixing in milk taste best (unsurprisingly) but mixing in water is also fine. The neutral and natural taste is a good indication of the low processing of this protein. I will definitely reorder!
Another great buy.
Mixes very well.
Ordered a supply of Cherry Bakewell flavour of this and it is excellent. I mix it with some fine oats in the morning and post workout and have it with milk and no oats in the evening. I have noticed more gains on this product compared to Bulk powders own version of milk protein which in my opinion is not a patch on this. I have now started ordering my supps from Protein works over them. Keep up the good work.
Have been using this for several months,twice a day ( morning and before bed) a supplement to the whey I use before/after/during training.I'm in my 50's, and - together with a good diet - this has improved my recovery markedly.I lift 4x a week and do aerobic sessions 2x a week, and adding milk protein to my daily routine has made a real difference.
I buy the unflavoured option - maybe I'm the only person who actually likes the taste?
I work a physical nightshift job and would sleep badly during the day, wake up several times, raid the kitchen and by the evening before work still be aching from the night before, full of junk and empty on sleep. Then i tried this just before bed in the morning, mixed with skimmed milk it has taken me from broken up 2hr sessions of sleep up to about 7-8 hours, I am able to cut out the empty calories and now in the evening feel more alert and fresh with less aches. For a single shake, it's done more than help my diet, its helped my whole routine!
I bought the Cherry Bakewell flavour and this is top stuff. I always have 1-2 scoops before bed and not only is it extremely tasty with milk added it also works well with water due to the texture and thickness of it. It's the most filling protein powder i've had so its working especially well for me on a cut.
I have been using mp for quite a while now until somebody mentioned tpw, I required a protein blend and they had a offer on at the time so I thought I would chance it and give the cherrybakewell a go.....All I can say is so glad I did,taste is amazing compared to what I'm use to.tpw will be getting my hard earned from now on.
Smooth consistency. I normally use casein but don't like the graininess of it, Milk Protein 85 is so much smoother.
Mixes well. No foaming and no big clumps or lumps.
Taste. To be it was lovely, I got the strawberry and creme flavour and it was really tasty! But some people might say it was too sweet.
Results. I have it in the evening and I'm not hungry in the morning or anything. I also sometimes have it in a morning with porridge if I know I'm gonna be out most of the morning and it keeps me full for a while :-)

Taste. It's very very sweet, some people would complain about how sweet it is but I have a sweet tooth so love it!

All in all I would buy this again and I would recommend it!
Mint Chocolate Brownie.
I find it takes alot of mixing as only a gentle shake will leave it a little grainy. I mix with mith casein for a night-time shake before bed to give my muscle some nutrients to grow as I sleep and I feel it works great for me. A few more flavours would be nice though! Limited in selection!
very versatile product which makes a very thick shake, great for adding too porridge and even better for making raw protein balls, just mix some up with natural peanut or almond butter and freeze, take out of the freezer around 10 mins before eating and you have a gorgeous sweet treat which helps you meet you're daily protein needs.
definitely ordering more soon.
This product has many uses, i often mix it in with my porridge on a morning, it gives it a great taste, a nice consistency and a healthy protein boost. But i also have a shake before bedtime on my weight days, my recovery times are a thing of the past, a great tasting shake that does what its meant too. Definitely reccomend it
I love this protein. I typically mix it with porridge for breakfast, or cottage cheese or yogurt for a high protein snack. It is tasty and as it's milk based, mixes much better in yogurt than whey. It also produces a lovely thick result. In porridge it retains it's flavour; whey can go a little rubbery when it gets too warm! Is also good as a thick evening shake. Pre/post gym I use whey as it's quicker to digest, but other times I always turn to the milk protein. Would be great to have more flavours though!
A great product frm tpw especially the choc mint brownie flavour mixes well only criticism is this is my first milk protein and the texture is different to whey meaning its thicker but thats prob normal. A nice shake before bed nonetheless.
Tried myprotein and it was chalky and gritty. TPW is actually a decent consistency and the taste of the choc mint is just right. No grittiness either. I will say the variety of flavours is not so impressive and needs addressing. otherwise the best MPC i have tried and exceptional value for money
Cherry taste is just amazing! As a protein it seems to be OK, nice to mix it with natural Greek yoghurt or cottage cheese. Aswell very fast delivery, wasn't even expecting to get it so fast.
great natural tasting protein, got the unflavoured version and it mixes great, would buy again and at a very reasonable price
Always add a scoop of this to my whey at night, I generally prefer to mix it in with whey so I buy the unflavoured option, price is good for a quality protein
This product is amazing! I have one scoop unflavored with semi skimmed milk, leave it 2 mins so the throth can disappear. It mixes all right and I add a bit of Nesquik, tastes good! People have noticed improvements all ready and I feel so much better in the morning, I have so much more energy! Would defo recommend it, this is my first night time shake and I will always be using this one!
I always buy the unflavoured and add a scoop in to my flavoured whey before I go to bed. No complaints and a good price
Been using TPW whey 80 after workouts and in the morning and have introduced this now for my evening shake. Had good results from the whey 80 so hoping now I have added this in will help me with recovery further too.
Great night time shake, mixed with half water and half milk for me and worked really well.
I add a scoop in with some whey and some oats in the morning to keep me going. Does the job 100%
Take before bed mixed with some milk or sometimes almond milk. High quality from TPW
Have one of these before I go to sleep, helps me sleep better and wake a bit more energised. Warning though, mix with water and not milk as it gets way too frothy.
I got the unflavored it tasted ok it's really gritty thought but if you mix it in hot milk it desolves. I'm gonna try it in hot chocolate and see what it's like. I've tried other shakes whey and egg white but they make me ill
Love this product, doesn't mix great in water or milk but really does the job. No dodgy stomach when I get up and really helps with the gains
Just recieved the Mint Choc Brownie of this and it's sooo tasty. Tastes like after eight mints. Made a protein pudding mousse just by mixing it with water and whizzing it up with a blender and refridgerating.
Also, uber fast delivery, ordered through cheapest delivery option (supposed to be -5 days) last night 20 mins before final despatch and received it before 10am this morning!
just had a second delivery of bits from this great company. Got the choc mint brownie and this tastes just like the viscount biscuits only down side on this flavour is a bit more grainy that the cherry bakewell that i also have.
Ordered a big bag of this for night-time use. Can't go wrong with flavour (mint choc chip) and mixes nicely. Great product. Recommended.
Very happy with speed of delivery , I ordered Thursday morning and it was at my door Saturday morning . Cherry bakewell flavour is good . It is a little grainy but all micella casein is as im also using optimum nutrition casein and that is the same .
When mixed, drink is a little grainy but is still very drinkable. Bought the Cherry Bakewell and although it does taste like its name im not the biggest fan. Feels a bit empty which I dont usually find with other flavours from TPW. Would buy again but maybe try a different flavour.
Little bit chalky like a standard casein, but is a lot smoother than most and much more drinkable. Always a tough product to make nice to drink, but TPW have made one that is really good in milk, impressive!
The cherry bakewell tastes so damn good! The only problem is that it is a bit gritty so I guess I will add more liquid in next time. Will deffo buy again.

Really nice protein and blends really well however not so keen on the cherry bake well flavour it has a interesting after taste i would definitely go for something chocolatey next time!
After reading the reviews I wondered if a product could be this good, BUT IT IS! It is the nicest casein I've had, and its not lumpy! really delicious and it doesn't affect my sleep
I bought the strawberry cream flavour and it mixes ok, However it has done the job as i don't wake up feeling like a hungry Ethiopian. Great success.
for less then £10 a kilo you genuinely cant go wrong with this product, i have the chocolate silk flavour its mix's well plus it tastes great and i use it before bed as i eat 7 times a day and need to prevent catabolism! 5 STARS
Just finished a bag of Chocolate Silk, taste is good but not keen on texture when had as a shake straight off. However mixed in my evening decaf coffee it's fab.
Also just found out that if mixed and shaken then left for a few hours in the fridge the shake turns into more of a macy ds consistency and the powderyness is gone. Looking forward to trying the vannila cream.
Seriously CANNOT get enough of this stuff, ordered some last week, used it in shakes and baking and needed to order another this week! Awesome product and great tasting, fantastic job guys.
I bought this product in the cherry bakewell flavour. It mixes and tastes great. I will be re-ordering this product when it runs out
Mint choc has a strong flavour which is good when stacking with less tasty powders.
just received my first order,2 x 1 kilo bags,i plumped for cherry bakewell and choc silk,both taste superb and mix so easily,very pleased
Has the typical casein texture witch doesn't bother me at all, mixes up fine the only down side would be how much it foams up and it takes ages for the foam to settle but this can't be helped in general with any milk protein, cherry bakewell taste good i was a bit worried at first i wasn't going to like it but now i might consider buying other cherry bakewell flavored products from TPW
Super fast delivery, Product mixes very well!, Cherry bakewell flavour taste great what more could you ask for?
I went for the vanilla, it tastes quite good but dose not mix well, have tried milk and water but has gritty consistency. results wise product is good legs felt pumped next day rather that stiff after a heavy 2 hr leg annihilation, shut up and squat.
Great product again by TPW! Mixes perfectly and tastes awesome!
Take this every night before bed without fail with bcaa, no aching the next day after heavy training and goof to know my muscles are bein fed throughout the night and bein repaired.
Like all TPW products the flavours (choc silk) is amazing. Best tasting proteins about and good thickness. This milk protein does not get clumpy and paste like other milk/casein proteins. Just about to order my second pack!
I take a scoop of this before bed with water and not only does it taste great but when I wake in the morning my muscles are still feeling pumped, I have tried other products in the past and liked that but no turning back now I have had TPW Strawberry flavour, thanks guys!
I like to take my slow Releaseing proteins as a mid snack & before i go bed & how this is better value for money thought i give this a try..very tasty as bought the strawberry cream & not thick like my previous one i take & it easily fills me up til lunch though my advice is to shake only for a couple of seconds as shaken to long it will froth up majorly as i found out but managed to master it :) defo will buy again & experiment with the other flavours
Like the previous review I've only had one shake so far so can't comment on the results (but then the effectiveness of protein can't be disputed so no need I guess). I got the chocolate silk and it tastes great. Considering I add L leucine to my shakes then if it tastes great with that manky stuff added then it shows how good it really is!
I've only had one shake so far so no results review, however the strawberry tastes amazing. It does froth up but this is a common problem with this type off product but i'll just shake it less next time. It also mixes well and i don't use the cage ball in my shaker.
