Product Overview

Platinum Hydrowhey was recognized by thousands of customers as 2010's New Supplement of the Year. What else would you expect from Optimum Nutrition's, fastest, purest and most advanced protein technology?

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 this revolutionary formula with ACTITOR™ peptides, digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). In addition to being fast, Platinum Hydrowhey is also ultra-pure.* That's because it's made entirely with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates. So there's no excess fat, cholesterol, or lactose to slow down your progress.

  • Made with Advanced Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolates for Faster Delivery*
  • 30 Grams of Ultra-Pure Protein per Serving
  • Nearly 9 Grams of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (BCAAs)
  • Includes Patent-Pending ACTITOR™ Peptides
  • Just 5mg Cholesterol
  • Contains Digestive Enzymes for Enhanced Utilization*
  • Instantized to Mix Easily with a Spoon


By combining the absolute finest ingredients with a series of highly specialized processing techniques Optimum Nutrition (ON) has created its most valuable muscle building protein yet.* Everything about Platinum Hydrowhey® was designed with an uncompromising attitude toward performance - both in the gym and your shaker cup.


Platinum Hydrowhey® is protein in its purest expression. It's made only with hydrolyzed whey proteins that have been isolated to remove the excess lactose, cholesterol, carbohydrates, and fat. The result is a product that's ultra-pure, quickly digested, and packed with muscle building and replenishing amino acids.*


100% of the proteins in Platinum Hydrowhey® are hydrolyzed to varying degrees. Hydrolyzing is a process through which intact proteins are strategically broken down into smaller fragments, called peptides, for faster delivery and easier utilization by your body. ON's exclusive combination of mild, moderate, and ultra-hydrolyzed proteins provides di-, tri-, and oligo-peptides while retaining select microfractions naturally found in whey. If this is too much technical talk, all that you really need to understand is that Platinum Hydrowhey® is ideal first thing in the morning, before workouts, and immediately after workouts when your hard-working muscles benefit most from a fast-acting protein.*


All proteins are made up of amino acids, but not all amino acids are of equal importance. The three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are particularly beneficial for athletes because they assist with new muscle synthesis and protect the muscle that you already have against breakdown.* That's why ON enhanced every serving of Platinum Hydrowhey® with added BCAAs for a total of over 8,800 mg per scoop.


The only way to reap the results of Platinum Hydrowhey® is to drink it. So from the outset, ON benchmarked the taste and mixibility against the best protein powders on the market. Regardless of whether you choose Turbo Chocolate or Velocity Vanilla, Platinum Hydrowhey® tastes as great as it works and dissolves easily in water, milk, or juice.


Try using complementary nutrients and mixing in other performance supplements to boost the functionality of your Platinum Hydrowhey® shakes.


Morning: Platinum Hydrowhey® shake + Opti-Men. Why? Your body needs vitamins and minerals to effectively use protein, carbohydrate, and fat.

Before Workouts: Platinum Hydrowhey® mixed with skim milk + Micronized Creatine powder. Why? Hundreds of clinical studies suggest creatine monohydrate's ability to boost strength, size, and power.* Combining creatine with protein and carbohydrate increases muscle uptake.*

After Workouts: Platinum Hydrowhey® mixed with iced coffee + Glycomaize + Glutamine Powder. Why? At no other time throughout the day are your muscles as receptive to nutrients as they are post-workout. Fast-acting proteins, free form amino acids, and quickly digested carbohydrates provide building blocks for rebuilding and replenishment.* Recent research also suggests that a shot of caffeine (in this case, from the iced coffee) may also help facilitate greater glycogen resynthesis, which means you'll be ready to go for your next workout.*

Before Bed: Gold Standard 100% Casein + Instantized BCAA 5000 powder. Why? Rapid digestion is beneficial during the day while you are active. But, slower is better at night. Casein proteins and BCAAs help protect and preserve your hard earned muscle tissue throughout the night while you sleep.*

I would rate this a 10 because it mixes very easily in my milk and espresso in the morning which I drink every morning pre workout, but oh man is this stuff way too sweet and strong tasting. It overpowered everything in my cup instead of providing a nice complement to the espresso which is what I was hoping for. It is very artificial tasting and smelling. If you use one full serving of this in the recommended 10-12 oz of any liquid, it is entirely overwhelming, strong and actually very awful. On the flip side, the mix-ability is 10+ which is the issue I was having pretty much with every protein I have ever used ever in coffee and why I decided to try some new ones. Primal Fuel is the perfect compliment to a hot beverage, but mixes terribly. Clump after clump. If you dont have a sweet tooth, you wont enjoy this. Ill use the rest of this at half the serving in smoothies, but if you drink protein with coffee or hot beverage daily like I do, one full serving of this is just too much and too awful.

I've tried all the chocolate flavors and they are good proteins. Optimum Nutirition makes great protein.

Love this protein. Easy to mix, tastes amazing, and it's Hydro. I notice better gains in muscle and strength using a higher quality protein like this.

By far my favorite powder. I've tried others but always get horrible gas. Not with this stuff. It mixes really well with just a spoon and water. I've found that it helps to make the water slightly warmer. This also enhances the taste for all of the flavors ive tried with strawberry being the exception. You wont find a lactose free hydrolyzed powder with 15.5 grams of bcaas anywhere else.

Recent purchase. I think it tastes great and mixes very well. I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues with this at all. I would recommend it 100%!

Alright, don't get me wrong - I love ON products and have been using them for years. The quality of this product is amazing, but holy **** does it taste HORRIBLE. I've used many different products in the past and this is probably at the top of the list on worst taste. If you're looking for hydro protein I highly recommend Mustletech's RIPPED. Avoid this.

Great product, I have problems digesting many types of protein. No problem here. Taste is very good, and mixes well by it's self and other products.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This is the best whey protein product I have used and have been using it for years. Great results. Velocity vanilla is also the best flavor as it pretty much can mix with anything. Delicious. I don't think I'll ever use anything else.
