Optimum Nutrition Gold standard 100% Casein
Taste / Mixability
The taste and texture of Gold standard casein is probably one of its best selling points. Now while the majority of casein products on the market have a very distinctive thick and chalky texture, that sometimes is very hard to drink down. Gold standard casein has a much more pleasant taste and texture to it, very similar to a normal protein powder. Also the majority of casein powders on the market are a lot harder to mix up due to the fact they are much thicker than the average shake. However Gold standard casein does not have this problem as it is not as thick. Infact the mixability of gold standard casein is better than some protein powders out on the market.
Price / Value
The price is gold standard casein is between $32 - $40 which is the middle of the market for casein. However you need to keep in mind that you are paying abit more for possibly best casein protein available to buy. With that in mind paying that little bit extra doesn't seem a bad thing at all. And you will be getting 28 servings out of your tub that works out costing between $1.14 - $1.43 , which is fairly good value for a shake.
