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 ingredients you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. 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

  • 77% Protein by Weight (24g of Protein per 31g Serving Size)
  • Why 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 Grams of the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine in Each Serving.
  • The "Gold Standard" for Protein Quality.

Suggested Use

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, 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 a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour 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 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 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 the 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 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
This whey works very well
Overall: Solid 8 Overall this product will blow all standard wheys out of the water. The value, taste, and effectiveness far surpass most others on the market. Effectiveness: 8 There is enough protein in each serving to help achieve your overall daily intake. Taken first thing in the morning, in between meals, or doubled up as your post work out shake. High quality protein consisting of Hydrolyzed Whey, and Whey Protein Isolates, both pure and fast absorbing. The Amino Acid profile is quite profound, including our three most valuable BCAAs: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. All aiding in a constant and speedy recovery with added Glutamine and its precursors. The recovery and ability to add lean muscle makes the effectiveness of this product quite impressive for it's cost. However it is not a gainer nor a meal replacement. Value: A rare 10 First off 70+ servings for $40 dollars is tough to beat for the quality protein that this provides. When you throw in all the goodies that you would otherwise have to pay seperate for, that equals great value. Along with a wide variety of flavors. Taste/Mix:9 The taste of Extreme Chocolate Milk and the Cake batter are amazing. Best used in a shaker cup, but can be mixed in a glass and spoon rather easily. Slight foam, but nothing that doesn't go away in a few seconds. This is already a staple for many of us on here. But if you are currently searching for a new Whey, or tired of spending half your pay check on other high profiled Wheys, give this a shot you may never go back.

The best protein, but taste..

Posted by beemoth on Nov 18, 2016

It is one of the best proteins I've ever used. It has good percent of high-quality protein, safe sweetener and natural flavour. But I don't like strawberry taste neither with milk nor water. And you shouldn't forget that to get some muscles you should lift :) If you'll use this product, doing nothing, you'll get only fat.

Love it

amazing flavour, much better than the vanilla and cookies and cream (would not recommend!) Fine to drink by itself with water and ice, (can get very thick and a bit sickly with milk) but I add it to plain oats to make them taste a whole lot nicer :D
