Value

Do the Math: Compare the Cost Per Serving to other protein powders and you'll realize the Gold Standard difference. It's easy to calculate. Just take the price of your protein product and divide it by the number of servings in the tub. That's how much protein you're getting for your dollar. Gold Standard 100% Whey provides ON's legendary quality with exceptional Cost Per Serving value.

Quality

Whey protein is popular with active adults because it contains all the necessary nutrients to promote muscle growth and also helps maintain the muscle you already have. Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey and the primary ingredient in Gold Standard 100% Whey. Each serving provides 24 grams of whey protein with 1.5g fat, 55mg of cholesterol, minimal lactose and other stuff you can do without. There's no doubt this is the standard all other proteins are measured against.

The best flavour by far is the caramel toffee fudge. I have tried cinnamon bun of different brand and that was great too. Will try cinnamon bun from this brand as well.

  • 5 Delicious Strawberry
  • 10 Banana Cream

A fake/chemical strawberry taste, banana flavour is much better. Banana flavour tastes like an actual milkshake. I would say bana flavour is 10/10 while double rich chocolate is 9/10.

  • 3 Mocha Cappuccino
  • 9 Double Rich Chocolate

Best brand I've ever bought. The Mocha Capuccino one is one of the worst I've had. Made me sick just thinking about drinking it. Sometimes with really cold water it would be drinkable, but I just finished the whole thing because well, I bought it... Double Rich Chocolate was awesome, I might even get this one again. Overall a great product, I couldn't give them a bad rating given my poor flavor choice.

  • 10 Banana Cream
  • 10 Unflavored
  • 10 Vanilla Ice Cream

This is a great brand of whey. I had been craving something banana flowered and the banana cream almost taste like banana pudding. Its very good. The unflavored is great for adding protein. It does have a slight taste of whey but if blended into something you can't tell. I use it for my berry smoothies. And the Vanilla ice cream flavor is probably the best tasting vanilla whey I've tried. It's smooth and taste like melted vanilla ice cream. Would 100% recommend this brand.

  • 10 Delicious Strawberry

I thought I was ordering vanilla, didn't realize it was strawberry until I dumped the scoop into my cup. Turns out it's pretty dang delicious. Tastes like strawbery Nesquik when I mix it with almond milk.

Product wasn't bad but it's not my favorite, taste or consistency. I wanted to try something new because Optimum Nutrition has so many flavors to choose from. I had to go back to my old faithful brand but will use Optimum Nutrition as my backup.

  • 3 Birthday Cake

Definitely not the best whey protein on the market. Fancy packaging and fancy name (GOLD STANDARD 100%) with the hyped reviews sold the product but was very much disappointing. The mixture was watery even with little water or milk as suggested and taste (birthday cake flavour) was far too sweet (not like vanilla cake, more like cream icing cake). Plus, also saw no real results. I’m going to go back to my Maximuscle which is great!

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey:

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 180-240 ml (6-8 oz) of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.

TIP: Adjust the intensity 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 in 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, nonfat milk, 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 high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.

STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 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 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.

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 even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Warnings: Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a food supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. Those who are pregnant, nursing or taking medication are advised to consult a physician before use. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place.
