Product Description

Our French Casein is the world’s highest quality micellar casein protein.  It is a grass fed casein protein. While most companies use calcium caseinate and sodium caseinate we use casein from fresh skimmed milk.  The casein is made through a process called “Milk Prism” which was invented in 2010.  The manufacturing technique helps the Heliogen casein maintain most of all its nutritional benefits naturally found in milk.  Secondly our  casein is imported from the France which means the cows are grass fed and hormone free.

Grass fed casein protein

The unique benefit of grass fed casein protein is that it is digested slowly in the human body. This protein clots together in an acidic environment such as the stomach. Due to this effect, the amino acids in casein are slowly released into the bloodstream which clearly explains why casein protein is defined as ‘slow’. What is the physical effect of this slow digestion?

The sustained release of amino acids into the bloodstream can be beneficial. ‘In sports nutrition, we focus on nutrition before, during and after exercise. A day has 24 hours and we do not consume food during sleep. For optimal muscle recovery it’s important to have enough amino acid in your blood during the whole day after exercising, so also during the night.’

A scientific study (Res et al, 2012) with athletes shows that intake of 2x 20 grams of casein protein before sleep increases the protein synthesis (the process of muscle recovery) after 7.5 hours of sleep with 22%.

The slow digestion of casein has even more benefits. Protein delivers nitrogen to the body. The faster the protein source, the more nitrogen will be excreted. In a “fast protein” source 66% of the nitrogen is utilized while in a “slow protein” 80% is utilized (studied by Dangin, 2001). These outcomes suggest casein protein can be an important anti-catabolic agent.

This means that besides whey protein, grass fed casein protein is excellent for use in nutritional applications. It’s an optimal protein source for sports recovery, especially during the night.

Protein ingestion before sleep improves postexercise overnight recovery.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

The role of nutrition in modulating postexercise overnight recovery remains to be elucidated. We assessed the effect of protein ingestion immediately before sleep on digestion and absorption kinetics and protein metabolism during overnight recovery from a single bout of resistance-type exercise.

METHODS:

Sixteen healthy young males performed a single bout of resistance-type exercise in the evening (2000 h) after a full day of dietary standardization. All subjects were provided with appropriate recovery nutrition (20 g of protein, 60 g of CHO) immediately after exercise (2100 h). Thereafter, 30 min before sleep (2330 h), subjects ingested a beverage with (PRO) or without (PLA) 40 g of specifically produced intrinsically

[1-C]

phenylalanine-labeled casein protein. Continuous intravenous infusions with [ring-H5]

phenylalanine and [ring-H2]

tyrosine were applied with blood and muscle samples collected to assess protein digestion and absorption kinetics, whole-body protein balance and mixed muscle protein synthesis rates throughout the night (7.5 h).

RESULTS:

During sleep, casein protein was effectively digested and absorbed resulting in a rapid rise in circulating amino acid levels, which were sustained throughout the remainder of the night. Protein ingestion before sleep increased whole-body protein synthesis rates (311 ± 8 vs 246 ± 9 μmol·kg per 7.5 h) and improved net protein balance (61 ± 5 vs -11 ± 6 μmol·kg per 7.5 h) in the PRO vs the PLA experiment (P < 0.01). Mixed muscle protein synthesis rates were ∼22% higher in the PRO vs the PLA experiment, which reached borderline significance (0.059%·h ± 0.005%·h vs 0.048%·h ± 0.004%·h, P = 0.05).

CONCLUSIONS:

This is the first study to show that protein ingested immediately before sleep is effectively digested and absorbed, thereby stimulating muscle protein synthesis and improving whole-body protein balance during postexercise overnight recovery.

We import our grass fed casein from Europe.  It is one of the finest proteins available.

    Heliogen CaseinCasein protein is a great night time recovery protein to keep you body from cataboling muscle after a hard workout. The heliogen Casein is from grass fed cows and one of the highest quality products I've used. No GI issues, great taste, and you wake up ready for another hard workout.

    Flavorless, bad textureI got this in hopes of finding a more sustainable casein option than Optimum Nutrition's casein (which tastes great, but is not grass fed). Unfortunately this one is flavorless and strange textured. The texture/mouth feel of this one is like the pulp left over after making nut milk. It's not inedible, but I don't look forward to it by any means. It's not suitable for casein pudding/cookies/etc, but if I blend it with 16 oz of liquid, stevia, and cacao and/or vanilla extract it's drinkable. Even more edible if you can add some nut butter to the blend.

    Heliogen Casein (Plain)I've tried casein protein from several other companies. The heliocentric casein from Protein Factory is, hands down, the best I've tried. Mixability with a shaker cup is great. I use water and a few ice cubes when I make it. I will definitely purchase again.

    Excellent for Appetite ControlI've used caseinate proteins in the past and I assumed this protein would be the same. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I was wrong. Heliogen is the best protein I've ever used for appetite suppression. Even a couple Tbsp added to regular whey helps me stay satisfied longer. 30 grams of Heliogen by itself sits in my stomach almost like a full meal.

    It mixes really well and it has a clean, but very bland, taste. Like other caseins, it thickens if you don't use enough liquid and if you use a shaker you should probably rinse it well because it will coat the inside of the bottle lightly.

    I'm naturally skeptical and I've been critical of some of Alex's posts in the past, so I'm not one to gush or give unearned praise but I think Heliogen is a very solid and worthwhile product.

    Casein fit for a paleo puristAs a die hard paleo practitioner for several years, my favorite "supplements" are raw liver and bone marrow. I'm not one for pills and powders in general. But this casein, however, is absolute gold to any modern athlete:

    1) Dutch dairy products are among the best. They're a big reason why the Dutch are the tallest people in the world.

    2) Casein gives you, the athletic adult human, much of the magic of nature's greatest growth elixir -- ruminant milk -- without the fat and carb calories that lead to unwanted fat gain. And it is very slow releasing, meaning you can take a huge wallop of this stuff at dinner and be on a steady protein drip for several hours, unlike whey. Little wonder that master body builders like Martin Berkhan consider casein essential.

    3) sunflower lecithin is paleo friendly. Soy lecithin, the usual alternative, is probably no big deal, but when any paleo purist hears "soy" he reaches for his flint axe.

    4) Alex, the owner of this business, is a loose-cannon anti-establishment warrior, charmingly eccentric, and deserves your full-throated support.

    I keep a 10 lb supply of this stuff, drink it every day, and am seriously ripped. You've found the best product on the site. Your ancestors would approve. I recommend you stockpile aggressively.

    Worth itVery smooth and subtle taste (I have both the vanilla and the chocolate flavors). Blends exceptionally well into shakes and smoothies. While not a professional athlete or lifter, I can certainly see steady gains in using this product. No GI discomfort at all either, another huge benefit.

    Casein... my before bed treat!I love my Casein protein powder. It's so creamy, it feels like a special treat. It is my night time routine... I heat it up with cinnamon or dutch coco powder & stevia and pretend it's a hot chocolate... and really it's even better than that! Pure muscle recovery and pleasure wrapped up in a mug! MMMMM

    Heliogen Casein 2lbsHi, the Heliogen Casein from Protein Factory does exactly what it is suppose to do and it effectively helps as a meal replacement for breakfast or at snack time. I started doing the Ultimate supplement stack recommended by the owner Alex in which i have lost about 15 or more pounds.

    The Real DealThis is my first experience with Heliogen whey. Finally, a protein that doesn't leave that heavy bloated feeling and that also produces results! Gains are modest but I can see gains after 4 weeks. Will definitely be a returning customer!

    5/5 - Very rare stuff to findSearched high and low for a clean rbst and hormone and soy free micellar casein from grass fed cows with a 3rd party lab analysis for compositional integrity verification. Protein Factory is the company, I’ve found that tick all these boxes.
    You get pure ultrafiltration micellar casein w/ sunflower lecithin from pastured beasts. When Daisy’s been getting her ruminant chow on in the pastures, she makes better moo juice. It mixes well, has a very clean and mild flavour, so it’s highly customizable. I added some ground Madagascar vanilla beans in the powder and it’s happening. A big thank you to Protein Factory. They also shipped the merch post fracking haste. Alex and the PF ninjas, I salute you.

    Casein PurchaseI love this product. The packaging is very easy and you can tell that it's more natural than any other protein. Mixes fairly well also with water and a splash of milk to top it off.

    Great Protein Great PriceThe quality of this protein is evident in the taste..it is light, smooth and milky flavoured.i wish it had a bit more flavouring but you can fix that yourself with some sugar free Da Vinci syrups.The nice thing about this protein is you can use it anytime of day for a meal replacement..just use a really good protein isolate immediately after a workout and you are set to go!

    Great stuff! Can't use anything else.The biggest selling point for me regarding this protein is the use of sunflower lecithin rather than soy lecithin. Soy is harmful and I wish more companies would pay attention. Protein Factory also uses Stevia, and the protein itself tastes great. Great for overnight.. Can't go without it.
