        • THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WHEY:
        • Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight. They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists. That's why they are the first ingredients you read on the 100% Whey Gold Standard™ label. By using Whey Protein Isolates as our primary protein source, we're able to pack 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving, and a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without. There's no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.
        • Beyond the Basics:
        • Packed with Whey Protein isolates (WPI)
        • Higher Protein Percentage (24 grams of protein; nearly 79% protein by weight).
        • Includes Hydrowhey®, strategically hydrolyzed, low molecular weight whey peptides to make protein faster acting.
        • Contains Lactase and Aminogen® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
        • Whey Protein Microfractions including Alpha-lactalbumin, Glycomacropeptides, Beta-lactoglobulin, immunoglobulin G (lgG), Lactoferrin, Lactoperoxidase, and various growth factors.
        • Over 4 grams of Glutamine & glutamine precursors.
        • More than 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, isoleucine, and Valine) in each scoop.

      Directions
      To encourage a positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1gm of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements.For even better results,consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

      Warning
      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.

          This brand of protein is very good, and I have always bought it. I wanted to try this flavor, but I have to say it is awful. I seriously don't know how the past 3 reviewers like this flavor? I am going back to the Vitamin Shoppe and hopefully going to exchange it for COOKIES & CREME flavor, which is the best tasting.

          The problem with that is that the C&C flavor has a ton of additives including high fructose corn syrup

                          I love chocolate mint ice cream so I had to give this flavor of ON Whey Protein a try. After giving it a taste, I think its great. The flavor isn't as strong as if I was eating ice cream, but that's okay with me. I'm drinking it mainly for the health/nutrition benefits anyways.

                              Love all the protein flavors by optimum. This chocolate mint has all the same attributes of the other flavors in terms of the protein and other supplements and also has a great flavor. I will continue to try the new flavors and as usual vitamin shoppe has great prices with excellent shipping and rewards as well. Very satisfied

                                  I love all of the flavors that I've tried from Optimum Nutrition, this is one of my favorites! Gold Standard is the best tasting protein powders I've tried. Some make my stomach hurt, not this one. It tastes like a milkshake and is easy to mix. I've noticed a huge difference in recovery time. Great price too!

                                  Seems to be an excellent post workout protein supplement. Great variety of flavors. Easily mixed with liquids. Easy to consume and seems to be absorbed well. Tends to cost more than some competitor's products, but seems worth the extra expense.

                                  Best Answer: You shouldnt be worried on shakes rather than good high protein whole foods. But to answer your question, Its all up to how you eat throughout the day. You want atleast 1gram of protein per body pound.
