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.

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.

Mixes very well.
I buy the unflavoured option - maybe I'm the only person who actually likes the taste?
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!
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!
definitely ordering more soon.
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!

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.
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!
