Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Strawberry ( ) 5 Pound Powder (70 servings)


Product Label

  • Whey Protein Isolates
  • Hydrowhey® Peptides
  • 24G Protein
  • 5.5G BCAA's
  • 4G Glutamine & Precursors
  • 77 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 81% 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.

    I find the Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein to be a great product. It's very easy to digest and I found it to have less sodium than most of the protein products on the market. To me this is important because water retention doesn't equate to muscle mass. I work out in the mornings before work and will drink a portion of this product and it will get me through my two and a half hour routine. As a wanna be body builder, I still put in the time and effort to staying in shape and this product is an excellent supplement in helping me achieve my goals. I also enjoy playing softball and tournaments can wreak havoc on a players body. Drinking this product helps with healing of muscles along with providing a good source of long lasting energy when playing double or triple headers.

    Artificial taste

    Taste was my only concern with this product. It wasnt horrible, but was alittle artifical tasting. The Vanilla ice cream is much better.

            After using some sort of protein since the early 80's they have finally gotten them to taste better and mix easier without the gas that used to happen too. I like this flavor the BEST but have used some of their others too.

              My only complaint is the sucralose, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. I would rather just have plain sugar. Sucralose is not easily digested and not good for you despite all of the claims.

                      I am a big fan of strawberry flavored drinks & was extremely pleased with the taste. I mix mines in a shaker bottle with 8oz of fat free milk, for total of 32grams of protein. Very convenient way to get your protein in while on the go!

                          I give this protein 5 stars because it's not the proteins fault I can't handle milk products. I toned up really quickly working out 5 dys a wk for 1 hr cardio & weights. I was 160lbs, female. It curbed hunger and built muscle really quickly. Good buy lots of protein in 1 scoop definitely worth the $$ if you can handle milk products. Its not a great tasting shake other flavors may taste better but who cares it gets the job done! Its easy to mix with water. I highly recommend it.

It's around 2 months worth of protein, acceptable taste (do not get the cookies and cream flavor!), and the price at Vitamin Shoppe is unbeatable!

                                  Optimum is my staple protein company. They sell high quality at a resonable price. Alot of people I know are not fans of strawberry protein powders; but it is one of the only ones that i can drink long term and still look forward to drinking it. 80 scoops, 24g of protein per scoop, 1g fat, 2 carb, and 1 sug. At a price that cant be beat. Any flavor of an ON protein should be a satisfying buy. Along with Optimum's whey I use their Casein powder, Serious Mass, and Natural Oats & Whey. I will never change protein companies.

                                      This is the best supplement that money can buy. Protein has to be the most important supplement for building muscle, so you should by the top of line protein; 100% Whey Gold Strawberry. The Nutritional Facts are simply amazing. This company is packed this protein with 24 grams of the purist muscle-building protein. It also contains a little amount of fat and very low levels of cholesterol and lactose. Additionally, it contains many BCAA's and other Amino Acids. It definitely helps me pack on lean muscle and lift more weight. I recommend this product to buy.

                                          This is my main choice for protein, after much experimentation with other types of protein powders, this is definitely the best choice. The taste is great, the results are amazing, and you get 80 scoops in one tub! (i dont know why it says 70 on the internet) You wont find anything better than this deal, for real results and less money chose this powder!

                                              Strawberry is pretty good, I went from Dymatize Strawberry to this and the taste were pretty similar. Mixes great with milk, never tried it with water.

                                                      I haven't noticed the before mentioned after taste, it tastes like a strawberry shake. I sometimes blend in some additional frozen strawberries and banana to make it even better, but it is fine with just the powder and milk. In the past I've had issues with other powders with a bad aftertaste but not this one. 5 lbs is the way to go with this one.

                                                          Kinda tastes like a strawberry shake until you taste the after taste. I have never tried the cookies n cream but my favorite is the Double Rich Chocolate.

                                                          Strawberry flavor is O.K., but Cookies & Cream" is my favorite out of the 5 flavors I've tried so far! Besides that

                                                          A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: I have previously bought a protein powder from a competitor. That powder only had 2% cholesterol . I just purchased the 2lb whey protein powder from vitamin shoppe and it contains 18% cholesterol . My husband would like to try this one, but he has high cholesterol. Is 18% a big deal? By the way, the competitor powder only had 9 grams of protein so I am excited to see how much more it fights my hunger. Jun 6, 2013
