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.


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.

  • 4 Salted Caramel

I thought the salted caramel tasted horrible. I bought it back in July and was buying it to use it for after my surgery and wow this stuff is bad. I bought another flavor as well but have not opened that one as of yet. I am cheap and trying to truck through it. I do not recommend the salted Caramel.

This was the first thing I ever ordered on ON make good-quality, solid products. If whey with no fancy add-ons is what you want from your post workout you cannot go wrong with them. I like mixing it with fat-free milk and 2 large bananas for carbs, so I'm kind of limited on flavors. The double rich choc is not quite as rich as I hoped, I had to add a little cocoa powder; strawberry is not a bold flavor, but unexpectedly well-rounded out: a little tart, a little earthy; vanilla is rather bland and uninteresting, but that's all things vanilla for me. I've since moved on to a different brand (KM) but ON remain my go-to in a supply crisis, or when on offer.

My go to for my protein needs. It's right in the middle in regards to their pricing per size and the majority of their flavors are fantastic which sets them apart from other companies. If they have a draw back, it's that some of the flavors can be a bit too sweet but that's a personal preference. (birthday cake was good but a bit too sweet for example)

Great protein supplement, doesn't upset my stomach, taste great and works well, one of the best whey products available. Works great with Casein drink at night.

  • 9 French Vanilla Creme

Overall quality is nice. French Vanilla Crème flavor was pretty good (I like Beverly International Vanilla best so I rated it 9/10). Only reason I rated it less than 10 overall was I like my protein shakes to thicken up if I add more protein. It seems that, no matter how much powder I add, the consistency remains very thin. I bought the five pound tub, as it's the best value. Price to value/quality is A+.

  • 8 Extreme Milk Chocolate

Mixes well with water and almond milk. Taste is good but I don't hold it in such high regard as the other reviews do; it's not bad, that's all. I'll just stick to Mocca Cappuccino

  • 6 Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 3 Mocha Cappuccino

I decided to try this when it was on sale. I got a large container of the Mocha because of the reviews on here, and I definitely regret it. It's pretty gross to me. Tastes like chocolate gone bad. Has a bit of sourness to it. Vanilla ice cream is a bit like super sweet powdered milk, but it's not bad. Double rich chocolate had a milk chocolatey taste, wasn't bad. It was somehow sweet, but not sweet. Like chemicals tricking the brain. Honestly, I'll be going back to my BSN Syntha 6 Isolate (lower calorie version) powders. They're way better tasting, it's like an actual treat after a workout. They're smoother too. With BSN, I could put some into a blender with spinach, banana, ice, and a little water.. and it would mask the spinach taste, and feel more like an ice cream shake. The ON could not cover the spinach taste and made it much worse. It seems like this Optimum Nutrition powder is pretty good and I respect the product, but it's just not as tasty as the stuff I'm used to. Not very excited about my shake today.

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.
