    Product Label

      • Whey Protein Isolates
      • Hydrowhey® Peptides
      • 24G Protein
      • 5.5G BCAA's
      • 4G Glutamine & Precursors
      • The True Strength of Whey
      • Whey Protein Isolates are the purest form of whey protein that exists. Hydrowhey® consists of proteins strategically broken down (hydrolyzed) into smaller pieces called peptides for faster utilization by the body. Both are costly to use, but whey protein isolates and Hydrowhey® hydrolyzed whey peptides are the best whey proteins that money can buy. That's why they're the first few ingredients you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey™ label. By using whey protein isolates and Hydrowhey® as primary ingredients, we're able to pack 24 grams of the fastest, muscle-building protein into every serving with a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff you can dowithout. There's no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.
      • The Advanced Gold Standard Whey Protein Blend:
      • Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is made of an exclusive blend of:
      • Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolates
      • Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolates
      • Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate
      • Hydrowhey® Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides
      • 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
    BLENDER - (EASY: A little more involved but worth the trouble) Add one scoop of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard to a blender filled with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage.

    Finally, I have found a great tasting Protein that still has the great amount of protein that I am looking for! Right when I got home, I opened the box right away and poured a scoop of this with 2% reduced fat milk and shook it up. It probably took 30 seconds to completely mix the powder with the milk; I mixed it using a normal plastic water bottle. I was skeptical when I smelled it, but as I took my first sip, I literally thought I ordered some hot cocoa mix or nesquik. It was that good! I downed the rest of the drink with ease. I am going to use this protein for as long as it is in production. Job well done, Optimum Nutrition.

    Optimum rocks but this flavor falls short, so 2 stars. If you don't care about taste then def buy. Vitamin Shoppe doesn't carry the 2 flavors I usually buy (French Vanilla cream and Extreme Milk Chocolate) and we go through buckets of this stuff. Will have to continue to but at the competitor with a G or on line.

                        I have been taking this product for about 6 months now. I have seen great gains in muscle and endurance. It tastes great and mixes well. I take it after my workout and it keeps me full too so I don't snack on junk food. For the price and value you get out of this product it is a great deal.

                          It's your must-have product for pre-workout fuel, post-workout recovery/nutrition. A great value and an essential in the household of any active individual; comparable to the essence of flour in a bakery. The icing on the cake is...well it tastes better than icing!

                                Very disappointed to see this product from the same people who make the all natural Oatmeal and Whey shake which I would highly recommend instead of this product. Full of HFCS with soy lecithin and sucralose to top it off. The protein plus BCAA and Glutamine make it seem like a good value, but the ingredients list says stay away. If you want BCAA and Glutamine there are better choices without the junk you can add to any protein shake.

                                Best tasting w/milk. W/water it's good too, but you can not over do it w/water, or else you loose the taste of chocolate. Mixes very well. Very affodable. If you're on a diet, and you're counting your macros, this is one of the best proteins to use, since it's low in fats, carbs and calories(even though there's more choices out there with less).

                                  I use this product the morning after my workout during the recovery phase. I used a competitors product up until they changed their formula. This product tasted decent, could be more chocolaty, just use a little less water. Mixes very well in the shaker bottle and at least you don't open the container and it's half empty like other brands.

                                    ON is the only whey I like to use. It's decently priced, tastes good(extreme milk chocolate and double rich chocolate are what i use. I'm sure there are other great flavors, but if it isnt broke dont fix it), and mixes well. It's pretty low calorie per serving, and low fat. what else can you ask for in a whey? I'm sure there are a bunch of other great options out there, but this has been working for me and I will continue to use it.

                                      If you mix it with milk it taste pretty good. This is the first time I used whey protien and it seemed to get me past that 6 week burnout that I always have trouble with.I drink a half glass an hour before I work out then the rest after I work out. Haven't had a lot of problems with after workout soreness either. I am sixty years old so any thing helps.

                                          The first time I had it, it tasted bland. but after i had it a few more times you can distinctly taste the chocolate and mint flavor. I take 2 scoops with 16 or more oz of water and it fills me. Great product will try more flavors after this one

                                            I use skimmed milk and crushed ice added to it and that is my lunch. It fills me up and I do not get hungry until dinner. Sometimes, for a change, I add a bit of carmel syrup for a change of taste to the shake which I put in the blender.I like the frothy shake from the blender which is so much
                                            better than just shaking it up. Using the skimmed milk adds only 80 to 90 calories, and it tastes so
                                            much better.Excellent product and value.

                                              A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Feb 11, 2014
                                              Best Answer: You can mix it with almost anything. I thought it was great with just water alone. It's good with milk - use skim if you're trying to lose weight or fattier milk if you're trying to gain weight/muscle. I also like mixing it with coconut water. It's great blended with greek yogurt, ice, and a little water/milk (and even a banana) - it makes it like a milkshake. It's pretty versatile. Thep powder blends pretty well in just a shaker cup with a ball. Hope that helped!

                                              Best Answer: If you're using it as a meal replacement, then I'd take it for breakfast. You can blend it with fruits for a better shake, or just mix it with water if you're working out.
