ON makes my favorite protein out there. i really like the extreme milk chocolate and mocha flavors - mixes well in water or milk/almond milk. mixes easily, no clumps. i definitely want to give some other flavors a go (mint chocolate, chocolate coconut, and graham cracker) but they don't stock near me. flavor is great though - much better than a lot of other options out there, doesn't taste like artificial chocolate, etc. good amount of protein, love that it is an isolate. my favorite thing, hands down, is the small ingredient list. one of the cleaner proteins out there. overall, for the taste and profile - can't beat it. also, this doesn't sit heavy in my stomach, even with milk. i use it for a lot of things, too - in oatmeal, for pancakes, proyo, etc. i definitely recommend ON - it's my go-to.

Most Whey protein powders that claim to mix well with water do not. However, this one is indeed legitimate! It mixed easily and did not leave behind powder or clumps at all. It tasted like chocolate milk and was smooth and easy to drink. I still enjoy it with milk but honestly, there is not much difference it's a personal preference!

Absolutely great product. Best tasting protein I've had yet. It is very soluble in liquid so it mixes great. Personally I prefer to mix two scoops in 10-12 oz. of fat free milk. I blend it in a blender bottle instead of using an actual blender because when I use a blender, it always seems to get frothy at the top. It has 24 grams of protein, 3 grams of carbs and 1.5 grams of fat per scoop, which is really great for any nutritional plan you are on. Overall, it is hands down the best protein - and a great price too.

Ive almost tried every whey protein out there, I've changed up my protein every time I buy a tube and did not get any results off them but once I've tried gold standard whey I have gotten huge results . Ives used this product over a year now if you have any questions I may be able to answer them.

This is my protein shake of choice it mixes well with other ingredients and has no funky aftertaste or chalkiness. It's great in coffee as a creamer substitute and for making protein bars.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction.
