The best casein supplement

Do you know what it is?

After we have made a classification of the best dietary supplements whey protein, which you can consult here, we have now decided to choose those that are the best supplements for Casein.

And how did we do this?

Unlike the comparison of supplements of whey, in which we used only products that had previously been analyzed on the website, here we chose to take those that are probably the best-selling Caseins in Portugal and place them all face to face.

We assign a score to the protein content of each supplement, its ingredients, price and also our opinion about the supplement.

You can consult the criteria in detail at the end of the page.

Don't you know what Casein is? You have here A brief description.

Let's move on to what matters, what are the best Casein supplements after all?

Myprotein Micellar Casein

Micellar Casein from Myprotein took the first position and added 17 points in our table.

What is so special about Myprotein's Micellar Casein?

Well, for starters it has a protein content of 80% where the source is exclusively Micellar Casein and nothing else.

Then it is the second cheapest casein on the whole list, costing just € 2.15 for every 100g of protein in the 4kg version.

That is, it is a supplement of excellent quality at an excellent price.

We give 5 stars to this supplement.

prozis casein

Prozis Sport Micellar Casein

Second was Prozis Sport's Micellar Casein, which added 16 points, one less than the Myprotein supplement.

Why did you have one less point?

Mainly because it is significantly more expensive, costing € 2.66 for each 100g of protein, 1.5 kg version.

This supplement has 80% of protein, but not all of it is Casein, being that it is a formula previously composed of isolated and concentrated Milk Protein.

What does this mean?

It means that it is made up of 80% Casein and 20% Whey, which is good and bad.

Bad because the name turns out to be misleading, since it is not exclusively Casein, but good because it combines the benefits of Casein with those of Whey protein, just like in milk.

We give 5 stars to this supplement.

xcore casein

Xcore Xtreme Casein

Third, we have Xcore Xineme Casein from Xcore.

Xtreme Casein is an excellent casein supplement, with 80% of protein and also includes vitamins, minerals and lactase, a digestive enzyme.

The problem?

It is expensive, costing € 3.44 for every 100g of protein.

prozis prime casein

Prozis Prime Fusion Night Casein

Fourth was Prozis’s Prime Fusion Night, which is the Whey Prime the Caseins, which is east our analysis to Whey Prime, you know it's not a compliment.

Prime Fusion Night Casein is the cheapest supplement on the list, costing 1.72 € for every 100g of protein in the 1.814kg version, which is basically why it is listed in 4th place and no longer below.

The protein is of low quality, most of which is not Casein, and includes unwanted additions such as the famous Glycine or even Wheat Protein.

Unfortunately Prozis does not present the aminogram of this supplement.

Our rating for this supplement was 2.5 stars.

We give 4 stars to this supplement.

Muscletech Platinum 100% Casein

Muscletech was in last place ...again.

Why did Platinum 100% Casein come in last?

Well, it is not a bad supplement.

So why is it in last place?

  1. Good afternoon… I have nothing against myprotein, on the contrary, but in the case of your casein in this article and on the website in the nutritional values it says that in 100g there is 80% LIES protein, because in I bought a bag of 4 kl without flavor to have more percentage of protein and I was wrong because in the bag it says that in 100g it has 74g of protein and per scoop of 30g it has 22g and on the website it says 24g… .I think that the brand is deceiving consumers…

    1. Hi Daniel, this is a little strange, because we already had it in hand with the 80% protein, have you contacted the brand?

    1. Yes you can.
      As for recommendations it is complicated without knowing the diet, but it is probably a good idea to use Impact Weight Gainer before / after training and Casein before bed.

  2. Hi,

    Isn't the fact that ON and Xcore have enzymes that aid the digestion of casein a point in favor that justifies the higher price in relation to myprotein's casein or prozis?
    Or could it be said that the presence of these enzymes does not present significant differences in digestive terms that justify the higher price?
    Is there a relevant role or not in the presence of this type of enzyme?

    Cumps

    1. Hi Francisco.
      It is a valid question.

      So, I didn't find the quantities of digestive enzymes used by ON.
      Without these values it is difficult to value it.

      In terms of opinion, no. It does not make up for the extra price.

      As far as experience is concerned, I know of one case (only one) that claims to notice benefits in the digestion of protein ... but using its own digestive enzyme supplement, not these additions.

      Therefore, it was not a factor taken into account in the evaluation.
