Why should you use Calcium Caseinate?
Bulk Nutrients New Zealand made Calcium Caseinate is absorbed very slowly, over a period of up to 10 hours. This makes it ideal at night, for those with a fast metabolism or when regular meals aren’t possible as Calcium Caseinate provides a steady supply of amino acids.
Calcium Caseinate has a high biological value & contains all the essential amino acids required by humans. Calcium Caseinate also contains high levels of the minerals calcium & phosphorus in a highly bio-available form essential for bone formation & strength. Calcium Caseinate is very low in sodium, and is high in L-Glutamine, an amino acid essential to muscle building.
During digestion Calcium Caseinate releases a multitude of bioactive peptides to enhance anabolic response and improve metabolic processes. In addition it provides moderate rise in blood amino acids that is sustained for up to 10 hours. This continual supply of amino acids may significantly slow muscle protein breakdown. The bio active peptides in casein may also have anabolic & anti catabolic effects. Calcium Caseinate is a convenient way to add extra protein to your diet. Ideal for men and women of all ages and activity levels who want the nutritional benefits of protein without excess fat, sugar or sodium. It is suitable for use as a beverage mix or as an ingredient in cooking & baking.

Calcium Caseinate is made by changing the pH of milk. In this state, Casein becomes insoluble in water. This allows manufacturers to isolate it from the other proteins in milk. After this separation, manufacturers combine casein with calcium hydroxide at high alkaline levels and dry the protein to end up with Calcium Caseinate.
In addition to its ability to mix with water, Calcium Caseinate also is a very shelf stable. As a food supplement, manufacturers use Calcium Caseinate to enrich products with organic amino acids, increase the shelf life, improve nutritional content and enhance taste and smell. The bakery, meat and confectioner industries commonly use Calcium Caseinate in finished food products.
