Description
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, 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.

THE ADVANCED GOLD STANDARD WHEY PROTEIN BLEND:
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
BEYOND THE BASICS
  • 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

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 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.

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™ Double Rich Chocolate:

I use the shake with skim milk to keep the cals low, I blend it in blender with about 3 scoops in say 10-12 oz of milk and drink it within 30 minutes of workout.

It tastes good, works like a meal replacement shake and has a great calorie ratio (5 cals / gm or protein).

        i gave it four stars because nothing is perfect but this is darn close. i was on creatine for awhile then my friends at the gym recommended this to me. i am not a big whey fan because i used a cheap brand awhile back an it made me feel like sick and tasted horrible but i bought this an i've been using it for a week now and i must say this is amazing i dont feel nearly as sore as i did when using creatine and it doesnt taste bad at all in milk but water it tastes like watered down hot chocolate but i am use to the water taste so it doesnt bother me all around great product i will be buying more of this product in the future.

          Switched from using Maximuscle products (Promax & Cyclone)and move to this to support my training and diet. It tastes better than any supplement I've ever used (I use the Strawberry flavour)and it doesn't leave my stomach feeling heavy after I've had it either. I mix with low fat milk although it also mixes well with water too. As for the results...can't complain at all. As good if not better than the maxi stuff I've used for a few years.

            Just incredible. I used GNC 100% Whey Protein (Chocolate) for over 10 years until they changed the formula.

            I just bought this stuff today. It is about the same aminos as the GNC 100%, but more protein per serving and tastes like hot chocolate. Where have you been all my life!?

            I could not be happier with this product.
