QUALITY

Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey and the main ingredient in Gold Standard 100% Whey™. Each serving provides 24 grams of rapidly digesting whey protein with low levels of fat, cholesterol, lactose and other stuff you can do without making Gold Standard 100% Whey™ the standard all other proteins are measured against.

As one of the few companies to operate state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities that are GMP compliant, ON assures that every shake will mix up effortlessly because of its first-to-market instantization process. You also expect each shake to taste the same as the last and your next. That's the kind of consistency ON delivers.

HISTORY & HERITAGE

Optimum Nutrition is legendary for both quality and innovation. In addition to producing the world's best-selling whey protein, ON's Gold Standard 100% Casein™ introduced slow-digesting nighttime protein to the weight training world and Amino Energy created the anytime energy category in sports nutrition. When technology makes advancements possible, ON will be the company bringing it first to your shaker cup.

Both flavors tasted great, mixed well with milk and water. I would buy more, I used this product when I got to my goal of body weight. Worth the price.

  • 9 Double Rich Chocolate

Double Rich Chocolate is my goto flavor, cant go wrong on this one. Mocha Cappuccino might be my new favorite. Has a smooth taste and it not overpowering. Chocolate Peanut Butter was a disappointment for me, I love Peanut Butter and have added a little into my shakes. Thought I would give this a try and it wasn't good. Strange taste that lasted after the shake was gone. Overall I think ON gold is a great product with a reasonable price.

It works, its convenient and it taste great but i just feel like there is better products at a better price with better quality. Over all best bang for you buck whey at Costco tho, but im tapering down my consumption of whey in general.

I’m one of those gym guys who do not really have a strict diet, take supplements, or drink pre-workouts/protein. However, every now and then, I‘d order a protein shake from my gym after workout and realized I was spending a lot of money overtime. So, I bought my first container of protein from this website and have been satisfied with my purchases so far.

Great Protein. Mixes easy and tastes great. I mix one scoop with 8 oz of milk and it is perfect. Will never buy anything else for my whey protein needs!

Liked this flavor more than other brands' chocolate which is sometimes too sweet & tastes like chemicals. It also mixes well with water & doesn't form clumps. Plus got it at an extra discount from GrabOn so that's a plus.

  • 3 Delicious Strawberry
  • 8 Banana Cream
  • 8 Chocolate Peanut Butter

I've been using Gold Standard for about 4-5 years now, I wouldn't use or recommend anything else. The quality of ingredients and ease which it mixes with water makes it a hands down winner. Up until now Delicious Strawberry has been my go to flavour, that is until they completely ruined it! The new taste is a lot more artificial and even makes my teeth/gums tingle. ON if you read this please bring back the old flavour!! Until then I guess I will have to experiment with some new flavours.. Either way, you cannot beat it.

  • 10 Chocolate Coconut
  • 1 Double Rich Chocolate

Double Rich Chocolate tasted like raw cocoa powder. No sweetness what so ever. Thin watery texture even when 2 scoops were added to a small cup of water. Not the rich chocolatey taste I was expecting. Hard to mix with siring. Lots of little clumps. The chocolate coconut flavor however was amazing! Mixed completely smooth by stirring. Thick rich taste and very chocolatey. Such a difference in quality with the different flavors.

****, this is actually really good. Now I understand stand why this flavor has such a high rating. After buying the samples of this flavor I had to buy the 5lb tub. Mixability is excellent, no aftertaste. I don't think ON can do anything better to improve this product, thats how well made it is. 10/10.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein:

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.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.

 

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. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
