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

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

      I take it daily with 2 cups of whole milk; it tastes like ice cream. Post workout, and rest days.

      One scoop means one scoop. Some proteins say "3 scoops" for a serving which, when weighed, comes out to 1.5 scoops.

      GREAT value, I bought this 2 lb tub of chocolate mint to sample the flavor and product, and am planning on buying the 5 lb tub once this is gone.

      I used to buy AMP 60, but unless you're professionally bodybuilding, this does the job for 1/2 the price and 2x the taste.

        I use this for weight loss/control.
        It is very easy to mix and tastes great compared to other protein weight mixes out there.
        It doesn't tend to last as long as other protein types.

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

        Despite the powder not mixing completely/as quickly in my shaker as I'd like all the time, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this product. The mint chocolate is my favorite flavor HANDS DOWN - I like to drink it post workouts 6 days a week, or make a shake pre-workout with almond milk and a few frozen strawberries! So delicious - if you haven't tried this flavor yet, it's MUST. (Pricing is also fantastic!)

          This stuff is awesome. Mixes extremely smooth with just a blender bottle. The chocolate mint tastes awesome too. I can definitely tell that this stuff really works. I usually do high intensity cardio and usually end up with sore muscles the next day. I wont say that ON has eliminated my soreness... but it has definitely reduced the recovery time. Awesome.

              I've been buying ON 100% Whey for a long time, and this by far is the best flavor. Chocolate Mint.....I was speculative at first, but after trying it, I have no regrets. In addition, I've been recovering faster since I started using this ON Whey for a long time and it has definitely helped me.
