The Bigger Picture or Whey
Whey Protein Isolates are the purest form of Whey Protein that exists. Hydrowhey consists of proteins that are strategically broken down (hydrolyzed) into smaller pieces called peptides for faster utilization by the body. Both are costly to use, but whey protein isolates and Hydrowhey hydrolyzed whey peptides are the best whey proteins that money can buy. That's why they're the first few ingredients you read on the Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey label. By using whey protein isolates and Hydrowhey as primary ingredients, we're able to pack 25 grams of the fastest, muscle-building protein into every serving - with a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff you can do without. Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey is also free of artificial flavors and sweeteners. There's no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.

Spoon Stirred: Gold Standard Natural 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 Natural 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 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. Tip: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard Natural 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 Natural 100% Whey to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.
Blender: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey to a blender filled with 6-8 fl oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for 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 Natural 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 Natural 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.
Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For the best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Its a shame that so many sports supplements have sucralose and other artificial ingredients. You would think that more companies would produce natural products. Guys like me are obviously interested in making sure that quality natural products are consumed to optimize the health and performance of our bodies. Well done ON. In my opinion this is the best whey protein available. No strong flavor and not too sweet so its perfect for both post workout shakes and mixed with fruits and seeds like chia and flax to make great smoothies also. I often add a scoop to morning oatmeal with flaxseed too which tastes pretty good.
This taste is amazing, best of all its free of artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose. I love it!
