        • The Bigger Picture of Hydrolyzed Whey Proteins:
        • Platinum Hydrowhey® is the fastest, purest, most advanced whey protein we've ever developed. In a word: excellence. By hydrolyzing the protein in this premium formula we've created our fastest-acting whey protein yet. Hydrolyzing breaks larger proteins down into smaller pieces that are able to get into your system rapidly, enabling your muscles to start rebuilding quickly. For added effectiveness we've also enhanced it with digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Platinum Hyrdowhey® is ultra-pure too. That's because it's made with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates. So, there's no excess fat, cholesterol, or lactose to slow down your progress either.
        • Purified: Excess moisture, fat, cholesterol, lactose and other materials are removed so that ultra-pure protein remains.
        • Hydrolyzed: Once the purest whey proteins have been isolated, they are broken down, or hydrolyzed, into smaller pieces for faster delivery.
        • Enhanced: Finally, Platinum Hydrowhey® is enhanced with digestive enzymes and micronized free-form BCAAs for added effectiveness.
        • Beyond the Basics:
        • Made with Advanced Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolates for faster delivery
        • 30 grams of Ultre-Pure Protein
        • Nearly 9 grams of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (BCAAs) per scoop
        • No Cholesterol
        • Contains Digestive Enzymes for enhanced utilization
        • Instantized to mix easily with a spoon

      Directions
      PLATINUM HYDROWHEY is instantized, so it always mixes up easily and completely. Simply add 1 scoop of PLATINUM HYDROWHEY to a blender, shaker cup or glass filled with 12 ounces of cold water, milk or juice and blend, shake, or stir for 20-30 seconds or until powder is dissolved. TIP: Adjust the intensity of your PLATINUM HYDROWHEY shake by varying the amount of liquid you use to prepare it. For a slightly thicker consistency with bolder flavor, mix each scoop with 10 ounces of water. For a milder tasting less sweet shake, use 14-16 ounces of liquid per scoop.

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Whey - 3.5 Pound Powder:

      I use this protein after my am workouts and when I come home from work at night. I am a taste snob and the chocolate is something I can do twice a day, every day. It mixes great in the small blender and even the shaker cup if I take it to work. I will add a banana in the am or a small amount of fruit and it is still great. Been using this product for three months after trying many of the protein products on the market. I was off this for a short while and noticed my recovery from hard daily workouts was much longer without it.

              I put a serving of hydrowhey in a shaker cup, take it to the gym with me, and add water to it as soon as I'm done. It mixes great and tastes very good...even with just water added. ON claims 30g of protein per scoop (the scoop is bigger, that's why), and it comes in at 160 cals I believe. So, that's good to go. The only negative is that the stuff is so dang expensive. If I had more money I would keep buying it (or when it comes on sale). Until then, I'll just keep buying the ON gold standard.

                Love this product! I like things simple and quick. I throw a scoop in my shaker, after I finish my weight training I add water to my shaker and drink. Flavor is yummy, no need to add anything extra! Turbo chocolate is the best! The change in my body is dramatic since adding this to my regimen.

                As always, ON's product is top notch. I never expect anything less. However, I can't tell enough difference between this, and a WPI(Whey Protein Isolate). Most WPI's will run you 20-30 dollars less than Hydrowhey. If I had unlimited funds, I would probably buy this, but as a college student on a budget, there isn't enough there for me to justify buying it on a consistent basis.

                    Protein is part of my diet and I consume a lot every single day. By far Im always researching for the good ones and try to figure out which one worth my attention. So I confess that this one is the best I ever tried and will continue taking until the market discover something much better. I strong recommend this whey specially the chocolate flavor. Huge thanks to VS for being the best place to choose the right stuff to me :-)) Thannnnnks!!!

                        And that's just it. Yea it cost more, but it doesn't just not taste like chalk it actually tastes good. At times I find myself wanting another shake just for the flavor. I've been using it for just over two months and I'm completely satisfied. I generally take it post workout as a breakfast supplement and at times breakfast replacement. I usually get into the gym anywhere from 0430 to 0530 in the morning, workout for about an hour, then shower and off to work, so it's great to have a protein that fills me up and keeps me going throughout the morning when I don't have a chance to eat. I'm not looking for massive gains so I'm only intaking about 60 grams a day but still I'm steadily packing on lean muscle to the tune of about 8-10 pounds over the past two months. Not much but considering I don't use any other supplements save the NO2 pre-workout, its pretty obvious where the extra muscle is coming from. I'm a 32 yo male at 66 inches and just hit the scale today at 200 pounds with about 11% body fat for those who care about body composition.

                                I've asked my personal trainer, a nutritionist and staff at two stores - of the stuff on the market this seems to be the best whey protein available because it is HYDROLYZED. Could be better stuff out there but in general, seems one should look for whey protein ISOLATE and HYDROLYZED.

                                    Obviously more costly but I really like the taste and texture. Dissolves better than anything I have tried and I have tried them all. I have been using whey for 2 years (about 2-3 scoops a day) so I'm speaking from experience.

                                    My title says it all. I began to experience a plateau and lost a lot of muscle mass in the lean-down process while preparing for my first competition this year. I decided to switch to HydroWhey and WOW - definitely a difference. The additional BCAA's as well as ON's high quality of hydroisolated whey make one potent combo that's definitely kick started my efforts again. The taste is such a treat. I won't use anything else. I work too hard.

                                        The stuff mixes great and tastes great too. I like to Mix with light soy milk. The price is a bit higher but you are getting a lot more and better quality. ON did a great job with this one and will keep me coming back for the chocolate and the strawberry. It has 30 grams of protein a serving and they are throwing in the BCAA's with that too, It's low fat and low carb.

                                            Great protein powder. Tastes good and mixes really easily. This is the best protein to buy hands down.

                                                Mixes very easily with water and milk. 2 scoops = 60g of protein, plus protein from milk as well! Protein aside, VS has the best price that I have found, plus the taste is very good as well. After trying Met-RX, GNC Whey, Pure Protein, and a bunch of others, this is not only the best tasting/easiest dissolving protein, but also the one with the best cholesterol to protein ratio!

                                                    This is a really great product. I've been a personal trainer for years, and I've tried every protein known to man. This stuff, not only mixes well in a shaker, it has a great taste, especially with skim or 1% milk, but I have really noticed good gains with this. I have been taking one serving as soon as I wake up, and then one before I workout, and then taking the Pro Complex post-workout. I really love the O.N. products and no I don't work for them and don't get paid anything to say that...

                                                        I use the Gold Standard Before with excellent results, but for a couple of doller more you get few more grams of protein, bcaa's. I can feel a little bit of a difference, but both are amazing products, price is great too and is alaways available at my local store. Turbo Choc is the only Flavor ive tried. Mixes quicker than gold stand as well

                                                        Has more chocolate flavor than the Gold. I drink this with lots of ice - it tastes much better colder.

                                                        When is the best time to take Hydro Whey? Morning or During the Work out or In the evening?

                                                        Best Answer: Depends on you. I started taking it pre-workout but worked best after workout due to its fast absorption. I take four shakes a day due on workout days morning, pre, post and before bed
