True Protein's Micellar Casein Smell


New member
I've been taking True Protein's Micellar Casein and is it suppose to smell like sour milk. I mix it in water and it smells really bad, I was wondering if this is normal. I know this type of protein comes from milk, but the smell just doesn't seem normal.

True Protein’s Micellar Casein is derived from milk protein isolate. The process of extraction is a natural and gental removal of all whey protein peptides, which leaves you with a pure Micellar Casein. Micellar Casein is a newer protein product, the process of manufacturing is only a few years old. You will not see many big name manufacturers using this product, mainly because it hurts their bottom line (to expensive). This protein powder can be considered the best of the best and the purest when coming to caseinate proteins.

Micellar Casein is completely undenatured and is chock full of sub-fractions and growth factors. This is great for overall muscle tissue repair and helps greatly in recovery. Since Micellar Casein is a caseinate, absorption is slower than whey products, therefore this is a great protein that has anti-catabolic properties as well.

Micellar Casein possesses a bland taste, but with all casein type proteins, they do possess a somewhat chalky mouth feel. Casein type proteins in general also have a much thicker consistancy than a whey might have, so mixing quantites should be less. Micellar Casein is an instantized protein so it can easily be mixed in a shaker or blender.


I wouldn't drink a 100% casein shake. I usually have 30% tops of any casein in my shakes because Casein's taste kind of bad.

Have you tried the TeamSKIP blend yet? I drink this everyday and its pretty easy on taste and it had the same Micellar Casein that you have been using... just not as much of it.

33% Micellar Casein

I don't know. My mix has 33% of it, not 100%.

Send an Email to them and ask. They have great customer service.
Let me know what they say when you get a response. I'm curious what it is supposed to taste like
