      • 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 do without. 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
    To encourage a positive nitrogen balance,consume approximately 1 gram 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.

    Mixes well in either a shaker cup or in a blender. I've mixed it with almond mix, water, 2% and whole milk and it tastes good in any of them. The chocolate combines well with fruit but if you plan to blend up some vegetables (I use a lot of spinach) then stick to the vanilla. I've experienced some visceral fat retention with the other brands because of their use of corn syrup solids to give their protein a good flavor. This has no corn syrup, 1 gm sugar and 3 carbs per serving making it the lowest insulin response inducing protein I've used to date (and the flavor is still very nice).

    The artificial sweetener, Acesulfame potassium, is used in this product. Because they don't use a complementary sweetener to mask the bitterness of this "Ace K", the end product is very bitter tasting. There are MANY other sweeteners that have been used successfully in different types of protein supplements. Why ON would settle for such a mediocre sweetner in such a popular product is beyond logical. The extra 10 calories you save between this artificial product and the NATURAL version is totally worth the better flavor and healthier option of the natural chocolate version.

        Enjoying the product- at first mixed with too much water which greatly diluted the taste. I only use about 4-6 oz. of water with 2 scoops of product before or after each workout.

          I've tried a couple protein powders and I seem to always come back to this product. The taste is great, no gritty-ness or bad after taste. I've had the strawberry banana, which was ok but not my fav. I've also had vanilla and chocolate. Chocolate is my favorite! I feel like you get your moneys worth. BIG tub, good amount of protein in a scoop with low sugar and carbs. So i totally recommend this product, any ON products are great in my opinion especially in taste.

              This product now contains less product and no longer contains Aminogen. Aminogen helps your body use the very expensive protein supplement. I'm taking mine back today.

                      I bought the ON gold standard 100% whey and I use every day pre and post and upon rising.
                      It get absorbed easily and it is light on stomach. However, It taste really bad and I have to struggle each time I drink it. I got stuck with 5lbs of Vanilla flavor and I get sick of it. They over rate it and I do not know why.

                        use it daily 2 to 3 times, taste is great in milk, did not feel it is worth the extra money over non name brand product

                              I had become a diabetic couch potato but I am now trying to become healthier and begin dieting. I found this protein supplement after extensive online research seeking the best LOW CARB PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT made with WHEY PROTEIN. So I have begun to use this product for a healthy source of PROTEIN which is low in CARBS and this product is exactly what I needed because it has 24grams of protein and less than 5 grams of carbs per serving. I chose the DOUBLE RICH CHOCOLATE flavor and it's delicious. I have nothing bad to say about this product.

                                        The double rich chocolate tastes great and mixes well in blender. I use this for morning shakes and smoothies. I sometimes mix in banana or blueberries for extra nutrition.

                                            Been using WHEY [different favors] for the past 3 years. Found that the Double Chocolate works best for me. I use one scoop combined with immune26 and Unsweetened Almond Milk every morning. WHEY, with the Double Chocolate, really gives me that extra needed energy for my daily workout! It also taste GREAT!!!

                                            If you are looking for protein powder, be sure to read consumer reports evaluation. Many have arsenic, lead, cadmium and other poisons in them. None in this stuff. Plus the taste of the "double rich chocolate" is pretty good. I drink it plain mixed with water or in a smoothie. Even plain it's pretty decent tasting.

                                              Comments about Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey - 5 Pound Powder:

                                              The taste, solubility in milk with a spoon, and the value are my favorite things about this protein. While I will buy other proteins when they are on sale, I always come back to this protien. If you compare protein per scoop and number of scoops per 5lb tub, this is almost always the best value. It really is the gold standard for me.

                                              Best Answer: I see Maltodextrin and modified food starch listed on the ingredients, both of which are sometimes made from wheat products. So unless otherwise listed by the company, I'd stay away from this if you have gluten issues.

                                              If you have never used protein products before and your starting out. Would you use this or a different kind?

                                              is this product kosher?

                                              Best Answer: I think you would need to go to their web site get a break down of the product constituents and take this to your Rabbi! I would guess that as Whey is a milk product then you should refrain from eating meat for several hours before or after.

                                              The issue would be, if ON's whey contains additives that have originated from animal meat. If that is the case then the product would break the Kosher laws/rules.

                                              Best Answer: Not sure but it is some artificial sweetner. It is a low carb product. My doctor told me to be wary of protein drinks because many have tons of sugar. You can tell from the ratio of carbs to protein this doesn't.

                                              Best Answer: Ican't answeer the medical questions, but ON Gold Standard is geneerally recognized as one of the best brands of whey for two reasons: taste and that it dissolves much easier and better than others. You don't have to have a blendeer, a glass with a spoon will work. My son is a workout freak (Tony Horton disciple) and uses a lot of whey. We generally alternate between one of the chocolate flavors and one of the strawberry flavors. They don't taste artificial like many strawberry flavored items do.

                                              Is there caffeine in this product? I see that cocoa is a main ingredient and wondered what the caffeine content would be from this!

                                              Im trying to lose weight without bulking up when exercise, it this good?
                                              Elia M on Jun 23, 2014
                                              Best Answer: The only thing that is going to make you "bulk up" is maintaining a calorie surplus. If you want to lose weight(fat) you have to stay in a calorie deficit. This a a good alternative to a regular meal when you are short on time and can't prepare something to eat. Just remember; calories in must be less than calories out in order to lose fat.
