Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Review

Jul 20, 2016 | by: Team A8

I just finished my huge tub of Casein, 55 serving. I had the chocolate flavour.

Taste: 10/10. I usually don't get chocolate If I can avoid it, and I'm very picky when it comes to taste, I'll admit. But ON Casein tasted awesome, it was smooth and chocolatey, I would actually crave it at night.

Mixability: 7/10. Not so great, probably the worst aspect of the product. It mixed pretty well for the first 60% of the tub, but towards the end it would clump up, no matter how hard I shook it.

Value: 8/10. It's not cheap, no doubt, but two factors gave it good value: 1) It lasts a long time, and 2) it is very effective.

Effectiveness: I took this product to keep me from losing muscle at night and to keep me full at night, so I wouldn't wake up so hungry that I would go and eat terrible, unhealthy craving foods when I woke up. For both of those goals, ON delivered, I would wake up with a still slightly full stomach. But I also noticed more muscle gain over the course of the tub, and less soreness on nights when I used it, especially leg days.

Overall: 9/10. I've tried lots of samples of other time-release proteins, and while I can't really judge their effectiveness, I can tell you that ON casein is great tasting in comparison. I recommend this product to anyone who is trying to seriously build muscle. This easily became a staple for me!
