Gold Standard 100% Isolate™

To create Gold Standard 100% Isolate™, we start by selecting only the highest quality whey protein which undergoes a series of sophisticated filtration processes to 'isolate' out excess fat, cholesterol, and sugar. A portion of this Whey Protein Isolate is then hydrolyzed - broken down into smaller chains of amino acids. The final product is a fast digesting complete protein containing no more than 1 gram of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fat and more than 80% of pure protein per serving. We put in the hard work to assure superior quality, so you can focus on achieving ambitious performance goals.

Ultra-Filtered For Exceptional Purity

Filtration Process Diagram

Using a series of sophisticated separation processes, excess fat, cholesterol, sugars, and other materials are removed so that less than 1 gram of total fat and 1 gram of carbohydrates remain in each serving of Gold Standard 100% Isolate™

Great macros, easy mixing and easily the best tasting chocolate protein on the market.

I am a big fan of Gold Standard so I am quite disappointed with the Birthday Cake flavor. I gave it two changes...It has zero flavor. Now to figure out what to do with the remaining 10 servings :(

Bought this in chocolate. Used two scoops instead of one to eight ounces of water. Could barely taste chocolate at all. At best, tasted like someone passed a chocolate bar over it.

Easy to mix and take down. Little water down taste, but still legit.

  • 1 Birthday Cake

Easy to mix, dissolves pretty quickly, the birthday cake is terrible though, tastes nothing like other proteins (almost taste like bad milk) and it foams really bad for some reason. The strawberry flavor doesn't have any problems at all so I'm not sure why this one is so bad. Other than the one flavor, helps with recovery, its smooth, its decent.

You know those yogurt commercials where a lady eats a yogurt and starts dancing because it tastes so good for so few calories? I always thought those commercials were absurdly unrealistic, until I tried ON Gold Standard 100% Isolate. I mixed the birthday cake flavor with some plain non-fat Greek yogurt, and not only did it blend SO smoothly, it tasted like straight up cheesecake batter. A+, 10/10 in my book.

The flavor is bland, just plain vanilla. Reminds me of back in the 90's of the taste of the protein powders then. I would rather eat my government issued MRE's over this one.

  • 3 Strawberry Cream

Not a fan. Compared to other whey protein isolates I've taken this one mixes really foamy and I have to wait for the shake to settle 5-10 min before consuming. I'll be going back to dymatize. Strawberry Cream: terrible, very chalky tasting Rich Vanilla: bearable

Throw your Gold Standard Whey and the trash and pick this up instead. This is exact what you need post training and isn't 50/50 concentrate bullcrap like Gold Standard Whey. Mixes great, and very good macros.

  • 10 Strawberry Cream

This stuff mixes amazingly well, even with just a spoon. No clumps of powder at all. The strawberry cream almost tastes so good that I almost feel like I shouldn’t be drinking it. It reminds me of the milk from a bowl of fruity cereal as a kid. Assuming it is what he label says, it’s a definite winner.
