Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Double Rich Chocolate 5 Pound Powder (74 servings)


Product Label

  • Whey Protein Isolates
  • Hydrowhey® Peptides
  • 24G Protein
  • 5.5G BCAA's
  • 4G Glutamine & Precursors
  • 74 Servings
  • 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.

    Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Double Rich Chocolate - 5 Pound Powder:

    This is a great protein product overall. The 5lb is the best way to get the most out of your money. Optimum Nutrition has a very high quality protein along with BCAA's that if you stay committed to your work out plan and diet YOU WILL SEE RESULTS! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I have had better tasting chocolate proteins. Overall, a must have!

      This is in my opinion the best Whey protein out there. The taste is good and the addition of 5.5 G of BCAA and 4G of Glutamine makes this a great muscle building supplement.

          Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Double Rich Chocolate - 5 Pound Powder:

          I've been doing a lot of Bikram yoga, and when you're pushing hard in a room that's at least 105 degrees, you need something that will stay in your stomach and not cause you to upchuck.

          The only thing that I can keep down is this Optimum Nutrition protein. One major advantage it has over a lot of other protein powders I've tried is that you don't need a blender to completely dissolve it. You just dump it into a cup, pour water into it, screw on the top, and shake it a few times and everything is dissolved.

          There are no negatives about this product, and that makes it one of the few products I've ever used that are just 100% goodness.

                    I usually take this protein with milk right after my workout. It works great! I have been taking protein for about 2 years now and haven't found something that i'm actually excited to take after workout because of its great taste. if it was a little less costly it would be 10/10 protein. Even though it is not cheap it is my favorite protein so far, and i would recommend it for you!

Optimum nutrition is in a whole other league. Taste is great, number one ingredient is whey isolate. The macros are awesome, like no fat, low sugar/carb to proein ratio.

                        Its a no brainer. You buy this protein now! :)

                          I've used a number of protein supplements, but this on is the one I've used the most. I use it after workouts and sometimes use it in smoothies.

                          If you're trying to gain mass, add it to some almond butter and milk and you can suck down some calories pretty fast.

                          If you put it in a blender it can get kind of frothy, but so what. It does mix well in my shaker cup.

                          It used to be a little cheaper, but ON has gotten a good reputation, so I'm guessing the demand went up. Good for them. Keep making a good product. Don't change it.

                                I love the flavor. It's just like having a shake!
                                Add peanut butter or add a banana. It's also great with soy milk. Be sure to buy a bella 13866 electric mini blender to mix it up with crushed ice. I am hooked on the stuff! Looking forward to losing some weight finally!

                                      I am a head and neck cancer patient that went through surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Because radiation scars your throat, initially you have to have nutrition through a stomach tube. My wife started adding this to help me gain weight. After I could drink regularly I like the taste of this flavor the best, and twice a day I have a protein shake to keep my weight stable. Our sons use it and this is where we had the idea to use it for me. The glutamine has helped my throat so that I can eat more than most that have this type of cancer.

                                        The first Optimum Nutrition protein I tried was the Hydro Whey isolate and I loved that stuff. I am now on a reduced budget and have been trying other options. By far the Gold Standard Whey isolate (this product being reviewed) is the best value. Not only is the price/quantity ratio decent, but the quality is above average. Easy mixability, even with just stiring. Tried the Double Chocolate and it tasted like chocolate milk. No chunks or chalkiness. Hoping it will live up to everyone saying the difference in quality compared to the Hydro is negligible.

It's a good thing to have if you can't decide and want to have something nutritious. The chocolate version tastes like chocolate milk. I also add to smoothies with fruit - very yummy! Oct 27, 2012

                                        David L: This is a good starter protein. Good for first thing in the am or pre-workouts. Also a good supplement for those looking to get more of their calories from protein and less from carbs or fat if trying to get lean. Jan 19, 2014

                                        HT M: 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. Apr 1, 2014

                                        HT M: 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. Apr 1, 2014

                                        I don't know about gastric bypass but Lindora recommended this to my friend because it is low on sugar and high on protein and tastes great even with water. I tried it and wouldn't use anything else! Hope this helps!
