        THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WHEY:
        Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight.
        They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists.
        That's why they are the first ingredients you read on the 100% Whey Gold Standard™ label.
        By using Whey Protein Isolates as our primary protein source, we're able to pack 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving, and a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without.
        There's no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.

        Most of the Optimum Nutrition products I've tried are great, but I was a little off with their strawberry. Of course it mixes very well and is low in fat and carbs, but the strawberry taste is very artificial, which was kind of disappointing to me compared to their other products. Aside from that it is still a good protein powder, but unless you're really crazy about strawberry, stick with one of their other ones.

        I just had the strawberry flavor and it tastes vile. It has a very strong artificial flavor that leaves a heavy chalky after taste. Stick to the double chocolate which is delicious. I should have listended to the one reviewer that said it tasted awful. Just wasted [$]. I don't know how anyone could say this is delicious.

        Comments about Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey - 2 Pound Powder:

        Our son loves the product & flavor, however, we were extremely disappointed to open the canister to see it only HALF full (other products we have ordered have been 80-85% full) and NO scoop. I contacted Customer Care and their reply was to do nothing. So much for customer satisfaction with The Vitamin Shoppe. What a shame!

            This is the first flavor I purchased from ON brand. I use as a post workout shake with 8 oz. of skim milk after my Insanity workout. My husband also uses it as a post workout shake after Insanity but uses 8 oz. of water instead. We both really enjoy the flavor very much and have purchased it twice now.

              I've tried several other Whey products and this is the best tasting one I've tried yet. I like to get my protein in as soon as I wake up each morning and I've found this product to be the best for that purpose. I'm picky about flavor and enjoy the strawberry. A great value for the price too.

                  100% Whey is a good product, but this flavor is terrible. I took it back and exchanged it for chocolate. One of the good things about the Vitamin Shoppe, they have a great return policy.

                          Just recently bought this whey protein and I'm already loving it. It tastes amazing and its really cheap compared to any protein I've ever bought. I bring it with me to the gym and take one scoop with around 6 oz of water immediately after my workout and still tastes great! I never get bloated with this whey and I also never get sore from workouts anymore. I'm usually at the gym for about 2 hours but I still recover with no problems. I haven't been taking it long enough to see results yet though. This whey works great as a meal replacement when I wake up. I use two scoops at most a day but I feel I'd probably see better results if I used three. I highly recommend this whey and the delicious strawberry flavor!

                                          Comments about Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey - 2 Pound Powder:

                                          Most of the Optimum Nutrition products I've tried are great, but I was a little off with their strawberry. Of course it mixes very well and is low in fat and carbs, but the strawberry taste is very artificial, which was kind of disappointing to me compared to their other products. Aside from that it is still a good protein powder, but unless you're really crazy about strawberry, stick with one of their other ones.

                                          My husband tried many flavors of whey protein powder and this one was the only one he liked. He makes a shake every morning with orange juice. Itâ??s been a game changer for him.

                                          is this product a weight gainer?

                                          Best Answer: Absolutely not, this is just pure whey protein. If you are looking for a weight gainer by Optimum Nutrition, serch vitamin shoppe for "serious mass" it should help you quite allot if you are a hard gainer :). Hope that helped!

                                          I'm a 42 year old female and was wondering if anyone who is my age and in good shape who has bought this product has seen results as far as building up muscles.

                                          Also, I'm lactose intolerent and was wondering if anyone who is lactose intolerent has experience negative results with it.

                                          One last thing,since it is Whey Protein Isolates and there's an issue for us women with Soy Isolates (breast cancer) I was wondering if someone could tell me how Whey Protein Isolates is the same or different from Soy Isolates?
