Product Information

Description

24G Protein
5.5G BCAAs
4G Glutamine & Glutamic Acid

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 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 protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. 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
  • Free of Artificial Flavors and Sweeteners.
  • No Synthetic Colors.
  • 75% Protein by Weight (24g of Protein per 32g serving size).
  • Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) Main Ingredient.
  • Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolate and Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.
  • Over 4 Grams of Naturally Occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving.
  • More than 5 Grams of Naturally Occurring BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) in Each Serving.
  • The "Gold Standard" for Protein Quality.

PRODUCT DIRECTIONS / ADDITIONAl INFO

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 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. Don't have a shaker cup? Visit your local health food store, gym, or optimumnutrition.com to order a custom ON shaker.

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.

Suggested Use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.

Powder Good, Customer Service Not...
I was sent an email asking me to 'share my experience in order to help other shoppers and improve GNC products.' If asked to share, I feel compelled to include 'my experience' with GNC Customer Support:
I ordered this item on the 7/3 and to expect receipt within 5 to 6 working days. It arrived 16 days later. I understand that shipping issues happen, but when I emailed to check on the order, I was told this:

'The order is in transit. You are correct re: delivery date being beyond the estimated delivery date given.'

That was it. No apology, and certainly no offer to make some sort of recompense. So, your customer service needs work.
The product itself is fine. It's a powder... with protein. The strawberry has a much better (really less bad) aftertaste than most.

Quality whey, no artificial sweetener
Tastes decent, reasonably priced, easy to mix, no sucralose!! It’s hard to find whey without artificial sweeteners. This is a good one.

My only choice
The best I can do before buying organic. They have changed it over the years but in the end, it's the only choice I know.

What's this difference between this gold standard, and the other gold standard with the red label?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2018

can i use this product without exercising?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes but it will be less effective.
Can pregnant women take this?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No
I'm 15 can I take this product?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These products are designed for individuals over the age of 18. However, there is nothing in protein that would be detrimental to your overall growth and health. I would have a talk with your parents, and perhaps a quick conversation with your family doctor before trying any supplements at a young age. Regardless, protein is essential to life and everyone needs it. Fun fact? Your body is composed of roughly 87% protein. Congratulations, 87% of you is beef.
I am 13 years old can I take on 100 whey?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. These products are not designed for individuals under the age of 18. If you’re interested, speak to your parents to consult with your family doctor regarding this. Your doctor may have similar recommendations to help ensure you are getting enough protein throughout your day.
