QUALITY

Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey and the main ingredient in Gold Standard 100% Whey™.

As one of the few companies to operate state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities that are GMP compliant, ON assures that every shake will mix up effortlessly because of its first-to-market instantization process. You also expect each shake to taste the same as the last and your next. That's the kind of consistency ON delivers.

HISTORY & HERITAGE

In addition to producing the world's best-selling whey protein, ON's Gold Standard 100% Casein™ introduced slow-digesting nighttime protein to the weight training world and Amino Energy created the anytime energy category in sports nutrition.

Hands down, best protein I’ve ever had. Weather your mixing it with water or almond milk it will taste great. I’ve only had the chocolate peanut butter and I don’t think I’ll buy another flavor. It mixes great! Like really good, I’ve never had one clump and only shake my bottle for about 5 seconds. I don’t ever feel bloated after this and feel satisfied after drinking it. If you’re looking for a new protein, don’t shy away from this stuff. It’ll be you’re new favorite protein by a long shot.

Not a big fan. Weird after taste. I tried with water initially, however moved to milk as it is much more tolerable. No diss to ON but this flavor is not going to be a repeat.

Getting back into lifting I went with a name that was trusted and I am extremely glad I made the decision for 100% Gold Standard Whey. After three weeks of lifting while using this product, I've noticed more consistent muscle growth than I have with other proteins of years past, as well as an increase in strength output. The digestion is great on my stomach and the Milk Chocolate flavor with 2% milk is just on another level. It's great on its own with water, but milk truly kicks it up a notch on the flavor.

Always the best price and fastest shipping. I stopped looking at other retailers. Went with extreme milk chocolate based on reviews and it is the best tasting protein powder I’ve tried. Only complaint, and it’s minor, is there are small chunks of powder no matter how long I shake in mixer. Not an issue really.

French Vanilla Cream and Extreme Milk Chocolate are my staples for whey protein. I wish Optimum Nutrition offered these flavors in casein. Other flavors that are pretty good are the two strawberries and really any of the chocolates. I just prefer the two above way more so I tend to stick with those.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.

 

Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
