Whey Protein Isolates


THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WHEY - 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, with 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.
BEYOND THE BASICS
  • Exclusive blend of Microfiltered and Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolates, Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate, and HYDROWHEY® Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides.
  • HIGHER PROTEIN PERCENTAGE (24 grams of protein, 75% protein by 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 (lgG), Lactoferrin, Lactoperoxidase, and various growth factors.
  • Over 4 grams of GLUTAMINE & glutamine precursors.
  • More than 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) in each scoop.

Health Notes

Whey Protein for Sports & Fitness

Whey Protein

Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that whey protein serves as another protein choice in their diets.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Protein is necessary for rebuilding tissue-this is especially important for bodybuilders. All types of protein provide the body with amino acids. From an athletic point of view, whey is just another type of protein. Choosing whey protein over other types of protein simply adds variety to the protein choices available.

Whey is a common ingredient in many meal replacements, which are designed to provide a large amount of nutrients in a minimal amount of calories.

How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?

Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise.1 A controlled trial found that six weeks of strength training while taking 1.2 grams of whey protein per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day resulted in greater gains in lean body mass, but improved only one out of four strength tests.2 Another controlled study found that people taking 20 grams per day of whey protein for three months performed better on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise than people taking a similar amount of milk protein (casein).3 However, a double-blind trial found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs of body weight per day of predigested whey protein for 12 weeks along with a strength-training exercise program gained only half as much lean body mass and had significantly smaller increases in strength compared with men using a similar amount of predigested casein along with strength training.4 A controlled study of HIV-infected women found that adding whey protein to strength-training exercise was no more effective than exercise alone for increasing strength or improving body composition.5

      I have been through 2 of these 5 pound tubs, and have been pleased with the taste and the results I have gotten. I used this product after a workout. Good mixed with water or milk. It is kind of a pain to mix though.

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Chocolate Malt:

      I love the mocha cappuccino flavor, the extreme milk chocolate is good, but NOT this one... I usually mix with skim milk, which to me makes most protein powders taste much better. My first taste of the Chocolate Malt was with water and I wasn't sure I could finish. I'll give it one more try with milk.

      I use this on a daily basis. Usually in the morning before any type of activity. The great taste prevents you from realizing that it is as low in sugar as it is. The amount of protein per serving is great. Waiting to purchase on sale brings the right price to a great product.

        Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Chocolate Malt:

        This is my first try of this ON Whey Protein. I had previously used the LEAN products which didn't work for me. Although I am not a chocolate fan, I chose this flavor over vanilla becuase in my experience vanilla seems to be "chalky". My person trainer recommended this for me and it is great! The taste is good and I use it prior to workouts (1-2 hours) and again right after to help in the recovery. I mix it with unsweetened blue diamond almond milk (vanilla) - very little sugar/fat/carbs (compared to regular milk, which is hard for me to digest).

          Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Chocolate Malt:

          I bought this b/c it was on sell at the time. Around $50ish at my local GNC and 5lbs and I saw decent reviews. I made a huge mistake. .

          This is definitely the cheaper Whey. I understood that when I bought it, but it reflects so in the taste. This tastes like liquid hashbrowns or something disgusting. Top that off with it being extremely watery and this is absolute garbage.

          I got the Double Rich Chocolate and it's much more acceptable. Still watery but the taste is more acceptable.

                  I am a big fan on Optimum Nutrition so I decided to expand past double rich chocolate. I received my chocolate malt and went straight to using it. Honestly, it smells, tastes, and sickens me like cheap ground up dog food. It is a huge battle just getting the two scoops for my post workout drink down. This will likely be the only protein tub that I will throw out and not give away.
