    Was always a fan of ON’s 100% casein so was interested to see what this “Tri-celle” stuff would be like. First thing I noticed was that it mixes better than any powder I’ve ever tried before. After mixing, it starts to get slowly thicker so I added some more water before drinking it. Tastewise it was delicious – verly like drinking a thick chocolate shake. I felt full afterwards. If it carries on thickening after consumption then I guess it will be a great satiety product. But I don’t know what its effects were in this regard as I went straight to sleep. I have to say however, that when I woke up, I felt good and was in no hurry to have breakfast

    So I’m not a huge fan of marketing terms like Tri-Celle or Platinum series, however after looking at the ingredients (and finding a solid sale elsewhere for my initial tub) I decided it couldn’t hurt. Needless to say I was impressed. As such, I will compare this to my typical Casein supplement (100% Gold Casein by ON).

    Taste:
    – I would say they are about equal. Little in terms of sugar and you probably won’t get addicted to it, but it definitely won’t send you running. I haven’t tried the vanilla yet but the chocolate is always a solid go-to.

    Mixability:
    – The biggest issue with 100% Gold Casein is its mixability. It seems to have gotten better over the years (that or blender bottles have gotten better) but you definitely won’t get any clumping with the TriCelle. I used the typical metal blender ball bottle (20oz) with about 8oz of water and it only takes a few shakes to fully mix up. Milk works just as well however I warn you against it (read below).

    Texture:
    – It’s actually fairly smooth but it does seem to thicken fairly quickly over time. I would suggest against using milk (if so, go half and half with water) simply because it can get a little too thick/difficult to drink. I made the mistake of mixing up my regular whey with the TriCelle and put milk into it…definitely took a while to down.

    Cost:
    – So this is the fun part. Initially the cost looks fairly expensive, but all Casein really it. However, if you compare the number of servings in a typical tub of TriCelle (25) vs the number of servings in 100% Casein (50?) and then factor in the 30g of Protein vs. 24g the TriCelle really isn’t terribly more expensive in terms of grams of protein/$. More importantly, if you shop around there are typically some good deals that can be found for ON products that can really cut down on the cost/supply you with a few months at a time.

    Other:
    – So this TriCelle stuff is supposed to keep you full/absorbing protein longer. I don’t have the instruments to actually test this claim, but I would say that when I take it prior to bed I typically don’t feel as hungry when I wake up 8 hours later. So if you have a typical regime like Casein > Bed > Whey you’ll probably see/feel some good results. I find that it easily keeps me satisfied until I get to work and can get breakfast.

    Tastes great, lots of protein/low calorie, pretty expensive, June 30, 2013

    If you have the money to spend on this, it tastes really good and you get 6 or 7 more grams of protein for less calories than most similar protein powders. There are only 25 servings in this jug, that makes it even more expensive. I plan to only use this stuff on the nights (4x per week) that I go to the gym and my other less expensive stuff on non-workout days. That will make is last about 6 weeks. Anyway, just my thoughts.
