      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 protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. 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. Because it's formulated with no artificial flavors or sweeteners, there's no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.

    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 your favorite 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 add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Don't have a shaker cup? Visit your local health food store, gym, or optimumnutrition.com to order a custom ON shaker. 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: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - 4.8 Pound Powder:

      I was tired of reading all the artificial sweeteners in the ingredients of other whey protein powders until I found this one. I thought the taste was going to be bad when I bought it, but again, I didn't want to consume artificial ingredients. When I got it, I tried a scoop with water and shook it up in a regular water bottle. It dissolved really well with no clumps floating around on top. I found if clumps are left on top, just shake longer or add more fluid. The taste was fine. I typically pound my post workout shake and I find it quite refreshing. I just started adding it to non-fat yogurt, and oh man that's a treat. I do about half a scoop with 1 cup of yogurt, and it mixes in again with no clumps and has the creamy rich flavor like chocolate pudding. Awesome AM treat with my oatmeal! The gains and recovery with using this are no different from the other proteins I've used in the past. Already have recommended this product to multiple friends.

          Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - 4.8 Pound Powder:

          Let me start by saying ive drank many whey proteins and can stomach all of them. Of course being a health freak i went for all natural over my usual chocolate milkshake whey artificial. What a bad choice that was it tastes so bad in water i do not look forward to drinking it after each gym workout. Its just terrible it tastes just like u took cocoa powder and threw it in a cup of water very chalky. But hey if u really want natural its def the way to go lol.

              Has no taste, if anything it tastes like watered down bitter chocolate water. I did use water and not milk, maybe milk is better, but I used water. I usually can just suffer bad taste because something is good for me , but I can't stomach this at all. Taking it back to VS, and trying another flavor. I really wanted to like this product.

                  What a great whey protein. For the money you can't beat it. Tastes great even though I'm an ingredient snob and could really care less about the taste. That's why I get the natural one. I'm all about quality, and for the value, it's no brainer.

                  Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - 4.8 Pound Powder:

                  Switched to this after I was fed up with Complete Nutrition's lack of, well, nutrition. With all natural flavors and no artificial sweeteners, this product is by far the best and healthiest protein powder I've used. The only thing I'm skeptical about is the use of Rebaudioside A which is, from what I understand, a highly purified form of stevia. While it hasn't been found dangerous and is technically a natural sweetener, I am skeptical of all zero-calorie sweeteners for now. Overall, it's a definite buy.

                  Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - 4.8 Pound Powder:

                  I am a workout junkie looking to put on muscle and I personally prefer my diet to be organic and healthy. 100% Whey Gold Standard protein is all natural, has delicious flavor (I own the chocolate), and the protein breaks down wonderfully which results in a taste that's rich and creamy. I researched proteins for about two weeks before purchasing and I finally decided on this specific protein. I look forward to drinking it after every workout and I would recommend this protein to anyone!

                    Fantastic protein- by far and away the best I've ever had, both in taste and performance!! Seems like product has been slightly reformulated from previous version, which was still great!! Powder seems to be a little finer, it mixes even creamier now, and the taste is a little bit smoother. Sensational product.

                    No artificial sweeteners that the body can't process normally. Even with the stevia found in this powder, your body processes the extract similiar to the lactase or the sugar (dried cane syrup) that is in this formula.
