    Hi Guys,

    With all the hype surrounding micellar casein (you know the ads from the likes of Biotest, Dorian Yates Approved, Max’s etc) has anyone got anything new to add regarding the big claims being made about micellar casein based proteins? I’ve seen a few threads on here regarding the Micellar, the general gist of those threads being…

    1. The jury is still out
    2. Most Micellar products are a little expensive given the jury is still out

    I recall someone mentioned that Max’s are doing a reasonably priced micellar, on the ingredients list Micellar casein is the first and therefore should be the most prolific ingredient. I am surprised they can manage to feature a high volume of micellar casein (MC) at what seems like a good price.

    I think Dr J is a pretty stand up guy and he knows his proteins (he was one of the first to stock grow and Tribex too which shows he’s always up to date) so I’d love to hear his thoughts on all of this. Also I’d love to know if Myopure will be doing a Milk Pro Isolate or MC based protein anytime soon as I’m sure it would be very competitively priced with the big boys.

    Look forward to hearing the gossip on all this.

    Have a great day guys,
    Matt 😀

    PS Dr J’s Heavy Grippers are great, my wife got me a set for my birthday am I’m very pleased with them, truly a great product ❗

    My ten cents.

    No studies have compared micellar casein with calcium caseinate. CC behaves the same way as MC (ie slow protein) and has the added calcium molecules. MC may have some peptides that have functional properties.

    I’d like to see a good argument as to how MC is superior to a milk protien isolate which is 80% casein.

    MC is supposed to be expensive but I’ve seen one site selling product claiming to be MC for less the CC!

    I’ve seen product with ‘micellar casein from MPI/MPC’ on the label which is fair enough but I wonder how many have been tempted to drop the from MPI/MPC.

    I haven’t been able to source MC in Australia although I’m sure that someone with large enough requirements could import it. MPI is also no longer easily available in Oz.

    MPC is still a reasonable source of micellar casein but the mouth feel is a little gritty. Even so, we may give it a go in the not to distant future.

    I am curious about MC products as I tend to get a bit of an allergy to casein and thought maybe the slightly different composition of MC to CC may be a little better option for me.

    Thanks for the info doc,
    Matt : )

    PS What do you personally think of the MC Low Carb Grow?

    Bit too sweet for my taste although I had cravings for the stuff 4-5 days after finishing the bottle.
