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 most effective whey protein yet. Hydrolyzing breaks larger proteins down into smaller pieces that are used by the body to support muscle growth and maintenance. For added effectiveness, we've also enhanced this revolutionary formula with ACTITOR™ peptides, digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Platinum Hydrowhey is also ultra-pure 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
  • 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 and packed with protein to support muscle growth and maintenance.


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, which may be easier to 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 hydrolyzed 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 are bioligically involved with protein synthesis. That's why ON enhanced every serving of Platinum Hydrowhey® with added BCAAs for a total of over 8,800 mg per scoop which may assist protein with muscle building benefits.


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 physical performance during short-term, high intensity workouts. Creatine benefits obtained with a daily consumption of 3g.

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. So during this window support your hard work with a quality protein to promote muscle growth and help maintain all the muscle you have already earened!

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

So far, this is the whey protein that I've tolerated the best. I am lactose intolerant and VERY sensitive to even small amounts. I've had no issues with this protein and my recovery time is much quicker between workouts. The taste is great and it mixes extremely well in both water and almond milk.

I decided to switch up from Gold Standard Whey after not taking any protein for about a year, and I went with this Platinum Hydrowhey. This is by far my favorite protein powder that I've taken so far. It mixes easily in water and milk. I've mainly taken my shakes with Darigold 2% reduced fat milk, and the flavor is excellent with a light consistency. Best of all, I haven't had any issues with stomach aches or lactose intolerance like I had sometimes with Gold Standard. I've felt less sore after my workouts and my recovery time seems to be noticeably reduced compared to prior use. It's a little more expensive per serving than some of the other proteins out there, but I'd highly recommend it and say it's worth it!

Better than all of the rest when it comes to ingredients and macros but has a heavy flavor which is not my thing.

Great taste, reasonably priced. ON Protein is literally the gold standard. That being said, this product is NOT lactose free, is LOW Lactose is not ZERO Lactose and product contains MILK. Somewhat misleading info on this (and similiar) products.

Easy on the stomach. Smells amazing actually but a little light on the taste/chocolate side. Will purchase again.

Velocity vanilla was an acceptable flavor, but at times it had this odd aftertaste. Great macros though and excellent for cooking. Turbo chocolate was amazing. Even mixing it with water made it taste like chocolate milk.

  • 8 Turbo Chocolate

One of the best Hydrolyzed Whey Proteins I have consumed so far although a bit pricey. Mixes easily and does not cause any bloating. I take 1 scoop post workout and add 5 grams of creatine and glutamine to it and chug it down.

I've tried many proteins over the years and was completely satisfied with GNC Wheyabolic for many years. I have always been a fan of Optimum Nutrition products and decided to try this Hydrowhey. I'm very pleased with the overall product. It mixes extremely easy and taste great. You get what you pay for. So why spend hours in the gym and and drink cheap proteins? Hydrowhey is the way to go if you want quality.

I won't use anything else. This is a staple in my nutrition and stack. The taste is great and it doesn't bother my stomach like other whey's have. Aside from the price being a little high for me I have zero complaints. Love the company and products!

Directions For Platinum Hydrowhey:

Platinum Hydrowhey® is INSTANTIZED, so it always mixes up easily and completely. Simply add 1 scoop of Platinum Hydrowhey® to a blender, shaker cup, or glass filled with 12 ounces of cold water, milk, or juice and blend, shake, or stir for 20-30 seconds or until powder is dissolved. TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Platinum Hydrowhey® shake by varying the amount of liquid you use to prepare it. For a slightly thicker consistency with a bolder flavor, mix each scoop with 10 ounces of water. For a milder tasting less sweet shake, use 14-16 ounces of liquid per scoop.

Stack Your Shake:By adding food supplements including creatine, BCAA, and carbohydrate powders you can make Platinum Hydrowhey® an even more powerful recovery product. TIP: Use Platinum Hydrowhey® during the day and more Gold Standard 100% Casein™ at night for more well-rounded amino acid coverage.

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 best results consume your daily protein allotment over several meals spread evenly throughout the day.
