      • The Bigger Picture 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 75% 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.

    Peanuts, Soy, Fish, Eggs and Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Wheat

    The best tasting flavor of 100% Whey. I have literally tried around 10 flavors of this stuff to break the monotony of the same tasting shake every day over the years. I also liked the banana creme and the cookies and creme. This stuff mixed with milk tastes like a strawberry Yahoo. It doesn't have the nasty taste like a lot of whey proteins do. Even the 100% Whey in other flavors gives a nasty taste to me after taking it every day for so long. This flavor really doesn't have that. Very pure protein that is affordable. Good value, good flavor.

    Gold Standard Whey is an excellent type of protein supplement. It gives you 24 grams of LEAN protein in a very tightly-packed scoop. You are definitely getting your money's worth. However, Strawberry Banana is NOT a great flavor. The Banana really makes it taste like shyte. I think I'm gonna try Strawberry next time. But idk, I also tasted Cookies and Cream and it also tasted like shyte. I guess I just gotta keep trying new flavors till I get a good one.

      Tastes like it should... strawberry and banana, which is a refreshing change from the same old vanilla or chocolate. Dissolves easily with a shaker cup.

          Optimum Nutrition 100% whey is great protein and only reason I'm giving this a bad review because Strawberry Banana taste disgusting. I will stick to Chocolate or Vanilla. I had to mix it with milk and ice otherwise with water it was gross.

            I decided to switch up and try something new. The rep at the Vitamin Shoppe recommended this flavor to me and that's how I ended up buying it. I was kind of skeptical at first, but decided to give it a try. I mix 1 1/2 Scoops with 4 ice cubes, 1/2 C. Water, a handful of mixed berries (frozen, blend and throw in 2T of flaxseeds. It's so good!!! For those of you that say it taste nasty, try blending stuff with it and make it like a thick smoothie.

                The taste is very good and after taste in minimal. I have only mixed it with water in a blender bottle but there is minimal clumping. I'm sure it would taste fantastic with milk, fruits, etc but...ain't nobody got time for that. I will try another flavor next time just to keep things interesting. My only gripe is with Vitaminshoppe.com. They list this as no artificial flavors or sweeteners on the website and it contains both. Not a big deal with me but others may feel differently. I use this 1 to 2 times 4x days a week. Also, there are other less expensive brands that work just as well.

                    Great taste! The banana taste isn't very heavy but overall the flavor works well. Tried it just with water in a blender bottle and it mixes well and tastes good. My favorite is blending it with ice cubes & a banana.

                      I use the product everyday to supplement my meals. Typically as a mid morning or afternoon snack. I also use this product after work outs. I find I am less sore the next day after having a shake. It mixes well with milk and other fruit ingredients. Wouldn't recommend with water if you're looking for taste. I've always mixed with a blender. Spoon mixing may not yield great results this will clump easily

Super easy to mix , with no clumps, only a few shakes and its ready to go.I mostly used it for a meal supplement and it did the job perfectly, helping me keep all the mussle and get all the protein i needed a day, You can easly mix 2-3 even 4 scoops and it still taste great. Awsome product, heavly recomended.

                                      This product (Gold Standard 100% Whey - Strawberry Banana) is listed as having NO artificial flavors or sweeteners and that it does not contain soy. Under "Other Ingredients" is listed artificial flavor, lecithin, and Sucralose. Where is the lecithin derived from? Why artificial flavor listed here, along with Sucralose when it is stated previously that it contains none?

                                      Thank you.
