        THE TRUE STRENGTH OF WHEY

        Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That's why they're the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey™ label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), we're able to pack 24 grams of muscle-building protein into every serving. ON's attention to detail also extends to mixability. This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There's no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.

        BEYOND THE BASICS

        › 79% Protein by Weight (24g of Protein per 31.5g Serving Size).

        › Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) Main Ingredient.

        › Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolate and Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.

        › Over 4 Grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving.

        › More than 5 Grams of the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, lsoleucine, and Valine in Each Serving.

        › The "Gold Standard" for Protein Quality.

      Directions
      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 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 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. TIP: Adjust the taste 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 yourfavorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop. SHAKER CUP: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then addone rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Don't have a shaker cup? BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water 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 ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even better post workout 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, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes. SUGGESTED USE: Consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For the best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenlythroughout the day.

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

          I love this product because it tastes good and meets my health and wellness needs. The Rocky Road flavor is sweet but I mix it with 8 oz. of unsweetened almond milk and it really gives this product a thicker shake flavor without adding too many calories. If the Rocky Road is too sweet for some people I also use the Extreme Chocolate flavor sometimes to mix-up the tastes too. This one is still wonderful but a little less sweet! When I found this product I was looking for something to replace the protein shake that I had been using every morning during a weight loss program. This was a money saving and excellent replacement to the chocolate shake I had used. It is a good bargain and the service is excellent. I usually get my product within 3-5 days of my order.

              The flavor is OK, but it's just waaaaay too sweet for my taste. I had to add at least another couple ounces of water per scoop to make it palatable.

                      Mixes well, tastes great, overall great value. ON was the first brand I tried and I liked it, then I saw a better price from another brand; Terrible choice. It tasted terrible and barely mixed, even with a blender bottle. I actually just threw half of it out. I went back to ON and will probably stick with it for life.

                              After 5 years of taking protein: best tasting, best mixing, and best value. I can't find it anywhere cheaper than this site (even with coupon codes and the like). I recommend rocky road and banana cream, I would shy away from fruit punch and vanilla.

                                  This is a great protein. It is priced well, its lower in fat and sugar than many, but still tastes good. Overall, I think it's one of the best choices on the market.

                                          This flavor is by far one of the best GoldStandard makes. Its like a combination of their double chocolate and their cookies'n'cream flavors, which both by themselves are great! Just got through with the strawberry/banana flavor and was not impressed (taste wise, its rough), but Rocky Road tastes great-- in water or milk!

                                              First, let me start off by saying I LOVE ON's 100% Whey Gold. Wouldn't go back to anything else. I have tried quite a few of the flavors but wasn't huge fan of this one. It was good when blended in my post-workout shake, but I didn't care for it when saken or blended with just water or milk. It was a little too artifically sickeningly-sweet for me.
