        100% Whey Gold Standard Vanilla Ice Cream, Whey Protein Isolates Primary Source * 24 g protein * 5.5 g BCAAs * 4 g Glutamine & Precursors * 32 servings.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% of Whey Gold Standard label. By using Whey Protein Isolate 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.

      First off, let me start off with saying that this an Optimum Nutrition product and didn't expect anything but the best. This is by far the best tasting protein I have ever tasted. I really believe taste should be a huge factor for a product especially if you're expecting to take it 3 times a day for at least a month. It also blends very well. I use a shaker bottle and blend my protein with fat free milk. I have been testing proteins for the past few months and this blows all the others out the water(MHP, GNC Whey, MuscleMilk). Now I use the French Vanilla flavor. Soon I will try the Double Chocolate and hope for the same great taste. I rate this product with 5 stars and really recommend this ON Protein who is looking for a great tasting and quality product for a very valuable price! Only been using it 2 weeks and I already see my body changing and I alot more energy than normal!

      I like most of Optimum Nutritions products, but was a little bit disappointed with this one. I just finished their strawberry whey which was ok, a little on the strong side of artificial strawberry, but not horrible. Their Strawberry whey is sweetened with Sucralose, which is fine with me. But I was disappointed to find out after purchase that this flavor(vanilla) is sweetened with Acesulfame Potassium - which I HATE because it leaves a weird sweet taste in my mouth all day. Also, from what I've researched about it, it is not good for you (the liver breaks it down into formaldehyde). So I have been trying to avoid Acesulfame if possible. I assumed that if the same company used sucralose for one flavor, they used it for the others too - WRONG. It is my fault though, for not reading the label.

            I am very happy I tried this protein mix. I use it in a lunch meal-replacement shake so I can't comment in terms of adding bulk/muscle, but it is very fine powder so it mixes easily- tastes great in the Vanilla Ice Cream- takes just a single scoop per serving- and it's actually MADE in the US. (too many companies are getting crafty with how they word those things) It was on sale, and I had my year-end cash credit, but seems like it's priced competitively as well.

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

              This was recommended to me by a bodybuilder who works at my local VS. His buddy backed him up and also recommended it. I'm seeing excellent results with it, so far. I'm becoming much leaner, and building muscle more quickly than I have in the past, without a post-workout protein supplement. I thought this product tasted great, for being a protein powder. I mix it with plain almond milk, and that makes all the difference. I've had it with skim milk, too. That was also yummy. I've even mixed it with iced coffee, and it wasn't bad. Mixed with water, it's not bad at all. I actually find the flavor to be better with just 6 ounces of water. 8 is too watery. I can't wait to try the other favors, which have even better rating than this flavor.

                  I love adding this product to fruit smoothies to increase my protein intake. I don't write many reviews and hope to earn bonus points with this review, but I love, love, love this product. A scoop of this, a little Greek yogurt, frozen fruit and almond milk makes an awesome calcium and protein rich snack.

                                    I bought this protein not paying attention to the ingredients because its optinum nutrition and their products have a great reputation, then I noticed it has HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. That stuff needs to be banned. I never would have dreamed it would be in a quality protein. I got rid of that stuff as soon as i saw this!!

                                      I'm currently trying to lose weight in order to join the navy. I go to the gym about 4-5 times a week and was mostly looking for something that will keep me from getting too sore the next day. This did just that. I take one shake after my workout and one right before i go to bed. The taste isn't amazing but it's pretty good. Overall good product i'm going to experiment with some other flavors though, just picked up cookies and cream and will probably start that one next week.

                                        Product works great as advertised, but the real comment here is Vitamin Shoppe. They have all the products you would ever need combined with all the intangibles like shipping that is super fast and reliable and customer service that is top notch. Great place to order product!

                                            I received this in the mail today and the label says it has 130mg of sodium per serving instead of 60mg of sodium per serving like this website says. Not sure what happened.

                                              It's probably the best whey protein powder you may find on the market when you're looking for the best quality / price ratio. I recommend the gold standard to anyone who's looking for a great cheap product! Almost all the flavors taste really good!

                                                        Yes this is great stuff. Tried a couple other powders, but this is my recommendation for those who like their weight and are trying to maintain it. If you're a super health freak- probably not for you- but this stuff works and taste great!

This is by far the best tasting protein I have ever tasted. I really believe taste should be a huge factor for a product especially if you're expecting to take it 3 times a day for at least a month. It also blends very well. I use a shaker bottle and blend my protein with fat free milk. I have been testing proteins for the past few months and this blows all the others out the water(MHP, GNC Whey, MuscleMilk). Now I use the French Vanilla flavor. Soon I will try the Double Chocolate and hope for the same great taste. I rate this product with 5 stars and really recommend this ON Protein who is looking for a great tasting and quality product for a very valuable price! Only been using it 2 weeks and I already see my body changing and I alot more energy than normal!

It is not at all chalky like some can be, and when you mix it with soy milk it has a particularly "cookie" flavor...it has cookie crumbs in it, and with the nutty taste of soy milk it really brings that flavor to the fore! I will continue to faithfully consume this product. I haven't found another flavor or brand that I like better.

                                                                                I like most of Optimum Nutritions products, but was a little bit disappointed with this one. I just finished their strawberry whey which was ok, a little on the strong side of artificial strawberry, but not horrible. Their Strawberry whey is sweetened with Sucralose, which is fine with me. But I was disappointed to find out after purchase that this flavor(vanilla) is sweetened with Acesulfame Potassium - which I HATE because it leaves a weird sweet taste in my mouth all day. Also, from what I've researched about it, it is not good for you (the liver breaks it down into formaldehyde). So I have been trying to avoid Acesulfame if possible. I assumed that if the same company used sucralose for one flavor, they used it for the others too - WRONG. It is my fault though, for not reading the label.

I have been using the cheap Six Star stuff from walmart, till I found out that theres creatine in it. I don't want to take creatine, I could tell I was retaining water. It still gave me results, but hopefully this stuff will work better for me.

                                                                                    I take this every morning after my workout, and then mix about half a serving with "The Ultimate Meal" along with a banana and apple. Makes me feel like a million bucks for several hours, and I can feel my body's furnace at work - stoked for hours.The taste is fine. I like vanilla in all its forms, and this is no exception. The ladies who post about bad or nasty flavor - I just don't get it. This stuff is great just mixed in water with a spoon - no clumps, goes down like water.I'm not a protein powder expert nor have I compared this to a multitude of products, but for the amount of protein isolate per serving, and how it makes me feel and perform, I'd say this is an excellent value and I highly recommend it - especially to people who actually like vanilla. The only downside is that it's not naturally flavored. That's the one thing that would make this a STELLAR product.

Got plenty of whey experience -and recommend you to shop at bodybuilding .com. There, often you get free bonus items along with the 100% Whey!

I do 1 scoop of whey and one half cup of milk and a half cup of some pureed berry or half of a banana then i put about 5 ice cubes in a pint mason jar and shake it good then put in the freezer for before the jim. Its like a rich yummy milkshake or you can blend it up with the ice cubes then freeze it. I have one usually after my work out or before. Either way i eat on the opposite end. Glen

As I am a vegetarian, protein is super important for me especially since I workout 6 days a week. My diet: protein shake, breakfast, protein shake, lunch, protein shake, and sometimes dinner. Would it be okay to take this powder 3x a day? Im trying to tone/build muscle.

The product description doesn't specify it's uses and I would hate to spend the money on a product that is gonna make me "bulk up". Thanks for your replies.

It will not cause you to bulk up. You would need to be lifting heavy and eating a ton of calories for that and even them it is hard for women to gain "bulk".

                                                                                    Whey protein is fast digesting and optimum is the brand I love the most!

                                                                                    Hope that helps!
