Product Information


Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight. They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists. That's why they are the first ingredients you read on the 100% Whey Gold Standard™ label. By using Whey Protein Isolates as our primary protein source, we're able to pack 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving, and a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without. There's no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.

100% Whey Gold Standard™ is made of an exclusive blend of:
  • Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolats
  • Ion-Exchanged Whey Protein Isolates
  • Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate
  • HYDROWHEY® Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides

  • Packed with Whey Protein Isolates (WPI)
  • HIGHER PROTEIN PERCENTAGE (24 grams of protein; over 81% protein in weight).
  • Includes HYDROWHEY®, strategically hydrolyzed, low molecular weight whey peptides to make protein faster acting
  • Contains LACTASE and AMINOGEN® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization
  • WHEY PROTEIN MICROFRACTIONS including Alpha-lactalbumin, Glycomacropeptides, Beta-lactoglobulin, Immunoglobulin G (IgG), Lactoferrin, Lactoperoxidase, and various growth factors
  • Over 4 grams of GLUTAMINE & glutamine precursors
  • More than 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucin, and Valine) in each scoop

SPOON STIRRED: 100% Whey Gold Standard™ 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 100% Whey Gold Standard™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz. of water, nonfat milk or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.

SHAKER: 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 add one rounded scoop of 100% Whey Gold Standard™ to your shaker cup and then pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. TIP: Mixing one scoop with 6-8 oz. of nonfat milk instead of water will give you a thicker, creamier shake.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of 100% Whey Gold Standard™ 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 a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, unflavored yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients. STACK YOUR SHAKE: By adding other supplements including creatine, glutamine, taurine (e.g. CGT10), and/or BCAA powders you can make 100% Whey Gold Standard™ an even more powerful post-workout recovery product.

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

I started taking this product quit some time ago and I use it 3 times a day, morning, immediately after a workout and about an hour before bed. It tastes great and after about a week I could see how it helped improve my workouts by reducing soreness and rediculously increasing my muscly strength and size while allowing me to trim body fat due to its low fat and calorie count. Hint: throw it in a blender with 8 ounces of skim mik and add a hefty spoonful of peanut butter (which has a lot of protein) and blend for 20 seconds, it tastes like a peanut butter shake!!!

Best Protien
My wife and I take it in am along with our morning coffee.We dont get hungry until 1 or 2 pm when we eat lunch.My wife is 72 and I'm 67,Whey has helped up trmendously this past year.Our arms are stronger.Our legs are stronger.Reason being when I sat in a low couch I had to get off onto my knees and use my arms and hands to push me back up.With Whey protien Gold Standard I can get straight up from that couch.we dont work out much at all.I tried Body tech pro24 for a month and lost that strength.I went back to Gold Standard along with my wife.She noticed a big difference since we swithed back too.

I was talking to my friend who is a Sports Nutritional Major at the UofAZ, and he told me I NEEDED to be taking BCAAs and Glutamine. So, I was going to buy BCAAs and Glutamine separately and just mix them all together in my protein shake...then I found this. 24gr protein, 5.5 gr BCAAs and 4gr Glutamine, here's the kicker...ALL in ONE (yeah ONE) tiny tiny scoop.
Seriously?... 1 scoop...from that tiny scooper? I had to go online and check that that tiny little scooper WAS the 32grams required to get the full dose. Well it was. This is the most micronized whey protein I have ever tried. It feels more like powdered sugar than the thick milkshake-mix type stuff I've become used to. It mixed with one pulse from the blender, and I didn't have to use much milk at all. Usually I have to use a big tall glass to drink my shakes, to make sure it doesn't feel like drinking thin mud, but I got to use a short little glass for this stuff. Phenomenal mixing, second to none.
This stuff tastes great! Because it mixed soooooo well with milk, it tasted more like chocolate milk, and was about the same thickness. Seriously, it tastes like Hersey's Chocolate Syrup.
The taste, mixing, and drinkability, combined with the full 24gr of whey, a great dose of 5.5gr of BCAAs and 4gr of can't find a better shake than this stuff. The ONLY downside is...its tough to find shelf space for the 71 servings you get (he said with thick sarcasm)

Super Stuff, Great Taste
I take this every morning before work. Fills me up til mid-morning, then I have a protein bar. I drink another glass after a workout. It mixes easily and goes down smooth. This strawberry-banana flavor is outstanding; however, what I always do is cut up a banana and cut up about 4 medium-sized strawberries. Add no-fat milk, plus two scoops of this stuff and mix in a blender. Lemme tell ya...BEST stuff on the market in taste, and is filling, plus it maximizes my workout both before and after. A little expensive, so I wait for sales and stock up.
