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.

Supplement Facts
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 ounces of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Don’t have a shaker cup? Visit optimumnutrition.com and order a custom ON shaker, or visit your local health food store or gym. TIP: Mixing one scoop with 6-8 fl. 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 fl. 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 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.

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™ - Extreme Milk Chocolate:

    I've used this exact same product for over a decade. The taste, mixability and proformance has stayed the same all this time. Has the actual make up of the protein changed over time? Sure, but all the improvments in the world won't matter if you stop taking a product cause you choke when you drink it and it hits your gut like a brick. This product has always been easy to use and drink.

    Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard™ - Extreme Milk Chocolate:

    I have tried different brands but this is my choice. 71 servings for the price is a great value. I mix it with coffee in the morning for a quick morning meal. I also have mixed it with oatmeal which tastes great and gives that protein boost needed. I mix it in a shaker for post workout. This is very fine powder that mixes better than most whey. No clumping. The chocolate could use a stronger chocolate tastes but that is just preference. Does everything it says with low calorie count.

      If your looking for extra protein in your diet, this is the one. I have never found it to taste chalky, keeps cravings away, do not get the highs and lows in blood sugars, easiest mixing powder I have ever used. I have been through 5 containers 8 months.

          great product. tastes great. i use it after every workout. i add a banana, milk, spinach and ice. the spinach turns it green and drinking green chocolate took some getting use to but it just added that much more nutrition to it.
