        • Whey Protein Isolates
        • Hydrowhey® Peptides
        • 24G Protein

        • 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.

        VALUE: Difficult to find a quality protein powder for under $1 per serving, most are lesser brands with a bunch of useless fillers. When I first started training, I admit I feel for the sales pitch from the "other place" that their protein was better, but this will work just fine for the majority of the people out there. If you need additional supplements, I suggest buying them separately so you dose properly and so you know exactly what you're getting.

        FREQUENCY: Since I'm not able to workout until the later in the evening, normally consume 1-2 servings PWO, with another serving first thing in the morning. Just remember this is a supplement, not a meal-replacement, so support this with some healthy meals throughout the day.

        VERSATILITY: Not a chocolate lover by any means, so naturally I would only buy vanilla. But just think of the endless variety of custom flavors you can make with this as a base; just add some of your favorite flavored drinks, whether it be a sports drink or fruit juice, and you're good to go.

        TASTE: Seriously, if we wanted to drink something just because it taste good, our fat butts would be enjoying milkshakes on the way out of the drive thru. For all of you out there that understand the phrase "it taste pretty good for a protein shake", this is one of the better ones out there; give it bonus points if you "customize" like I mentioned above.

        RESULTS: Depending on your routine, whether your fitness/cardio psycho or weight training freak, this protein powder will work wonders for you. I personally try to walk a happy median between the two (leaning more towards the weight training) and have found this to be very helpful with the recovery aspect of both. Also helped me immensely with building and maintaining lean muscle mass.

        I gave this product 3 stars, Optimum Nutrition has some of the best quality whey protein you can get. For the price you can't beat it. This flavor however I will not order again. Cookies and Cream and Chocolate are the only that I've been able to tolerate. If they improve performance in the taste it could be 5 stars. Don't expect this vanilla ice cream to taste like USP Labs vanilla ice cream.

          You need to be aware, Whey Protein sometimes also contains Soy Protein, I buy Whey to get Whey not Soy. I have it with my Oat Meal breakfast every day, I'm not a body builder I just try to mantain and fortify my muscles and insure my protein intake, my wife makes protein shakes with this product, we both like it, no Cons

              Great stuff. Great quality. Great price. GREAT FLAVOR. No where near as sweet as other brands I have tried. I really like this product. Mixes well and the vanilla goes well with fruit to mix things up from time to time. Worth the extra few bucks.

                  This stuff is great. I mix it with almond milk usually right after a workout. Although it is also a good snack at night: I mix it up in the blender with almond milk, frozen bananas and better n' peanut butter. It always fills me up and tastes great. It mixes well too. It has aided me in recovery after my workouts (mainly sprints and weight lifting/strength training). I have seen great results in my overall muscle building and recovery.

                        Been some time since I've shopped for whey. Recently got back into lifting and wanted some new supplements. This was one of the best rated brands so I thought I'd give it a shot. I use it every morning. Mixes great in water, milk, almond milk, or in my smoothies. For me, the taste isn't there. If I mix with just milk or water I cant do more than 8-10 oz or the taste gets pretty bad. But, its not bad to the point to where I dont want to drink it. I still look forward to drinking it every morning. Well worth the buy, great whey powder.

                          I gave this product 3 stars, Optimum Nutrition has some of the best quality whey protein you can get. For the price you can't beat it. This flavor however I will not order again. Cookies and Cream and Chocolate are the only that I've been able to tolerate. If they improve performance in the taste it could be 5 stars. Don't expect this vanilla ice cream to taste like USP Labs vanilla ice cream.

                          I workout 6 days a week and have been using this protein for the last three years, pound for pound, this is the best tasting and mixing protein I've ever used. I ususally get the cookies and cream or vanilla ice cream(great taste)!

                              The vanilla ice cream flavor tastes like a treat! I normally buy chocolate flavors, but decided it was time for a change. Just like every other Optimum Nutrition protein, this vanilla ice cream flavor mixes very well (in water OR milk), has a great flavor, and is a very good quality protein at a good price.

                                          I've been using this product for 8-9 years. After taking a hard look at the daily make up of what I ate, I realized that my protein intake wasn't where it should be. That's when I first started using this product. When I'm not traveling, I make a breakfast smoothie every morning with 2 scoops of protein and other things so that I make sure I'm getting a good balance of protein intake throughout the day. This product mixes very well (no lumping) and tastes fantastic. I've tried other whey proteins, but I kept coming back to this one. I also mix a scoop of it with my pre-workout drink.

                                              I am in the first week of the Insanity Circuit and was starting to get really sore. After starting to take a recovery protein shake after my workout, I feel great. This stuff mixes great in a smoothie and tastes amazing. My muscles don't hurt as much and I have a boost of energy that lasts throughout the day. I use almond milk, frozen fruit, and an orange Emergency to add some Vitamine C. Taste just like an orange julious!

                                                  This is by far the best protein powder I have ever tasted. I felt as if i never wanted the drink to finish, I could drink this for days. This has no unnecessary additives, it's just pure whey protein. I have no reason to complain about this product.

                                                              If there is one supplement that has stood the test of time and proven itself as essential to athletes, it is protein. And Whey Protein is certainly one of the best with its high bio-availability. Optimum Nutrition hit this one dead on too! It is an incredible value, mixes well and tastes great! They have quite an offering of flavors too for different tastes. Personally, I am a big vanilla fan and love this formula! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is serious about their sports, especially weight-training.

Gnc sells the same product for 65 dollars and that is just too much. Lets break it down, you have to pay 25 dollars for two pounds but you are able to get this 5 pounder for 40. It is also very easy to mix and hits the spot. Its 100 percent whey so there are no added things to it like other proteins. I would recommend it and double it up with Casein.

Depending on how fat you are and how hard you workout, it may be better not to have this and just have a normal meal. This is a protein supplement, not a fat burner.
