Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein Chocolate Creme -- 2 lbs

Naturally Flavored. No Artificial Flavors or Sweeteners. Slow-Acting Protein. 24 G Protein. 9.6 G Essential Amino Acids. 4 G Sugar. 24 Servings. The True Strength of Casein. Rapid protein use is desireable 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 tend to thicken in the stomach. Because of this it can take more than twice as long for the Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. Gold Standard natural 100% Casein is also free of artificial flavors sweeteners and synthetic colors and uses only premium micellar caseins to create a protein formula that's truly time-released.  . Beyond the Basics. > No Artificial Flavors Sweeteners or Synthetic Colors. > Loaded with Micellar Casein. > 24 grams of time-released protein per serving. > Nearly 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine Isoleucine and Valine). > Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & Glutamine Precursors in every scoop.

Best casein i've tried
 August 31, 2013
"The texture and flavor of this stuff is the best that i've tried out of several different caseins. I was very surprised, because I wasn't expecting a natural line to beat some of the artificially sweetened products. It's still thick and takes a while to mix properly, but that's going to be the case with any casein. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed."

Great Product at a great price!
 June 7, 2013
"I've reviewed lots of protein supplements out there and also tried a few. Hard to find one that tastes great, gives you the quality protein you're looking for, one not loaded with a bunch of junk ingredients and one that is affordable. Gold Standard Natural from Vitacost is definitely a great choice."
