What it is
Unlike whey, which digests very rapidly making it ideal for post-workout recovery, micellar casein is digested and absorbed very slowly making it more beneficial for other times during the day. Casein proteins are acid sensitive and tend to thicken in the stomach. Because of this, a single serving can give you continual, slow amino acid release into the blood for upto 6-8 hours. The delayed digestion and absorption makes casein the perfect bedtime protein since your body typically goes for hours without food.
