The True Strength of Whey
Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That's why they're the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. BY using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), we're able to pack 24 grams of muscle-building protein into every serving. ON's attention to detail also extends to mixability. This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There’s no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.
Beyond the Basics
- 76% Protein by Weight (24 g of Protein per 31.5 g Serving Size).
- Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) Main Ingredient.
- Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolate and Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.
- Over 4 Grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving.
- More than 5 rams of the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine in Each Serving.
- The "Gold Standard' for Protein Quality.
Serving Scoop Included, but May Settle to the Bottom During Shipping.
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 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. Tip: Adjust the taste 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 Cup: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get al dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just 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 fl oz of water 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, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack Your Shake: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey an even better post workout 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 milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. By adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.
Consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements. For the best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

This is an excelent product if you wish to grow muscles and not gain body fat with it. I've obtained great results with this product. The only observation is regarding the flavor: the mint could become a bit sickening after some time, recomend buy this with some other flavor and relay them.

It has to mix it with milk or soy milk.. with water, it just doesn't bring out the Chocolate mint taste.

Wonderful Product, Very Good Flavour, although the mint can be made a bit stronger. I recomend having a few flavours so you do not get sick of one flavour only. I got a few of the smaller 2lb Sizes and trying them to determine the best flavours. This is one of those flavours that I enjoy. Now the important stuff, the protien and muscle recovery, no doubt Optimum nutrition products are superb and so far using whey has helped me avoid the after exercise muscle pain almost to the point that I doubt if I pushed my self enough in the GYM. Enjoy !
