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™ - Mocha Cappuccino:

    I take this a couple times a day, when waking up and post workout. I mix it with 8 oz of unsweetened almond milk. Mixes just as well as all the other ON products (very well) with a good flavor. I got this because I was tired of the standard chocolate/vanilla, and strawberry just isn't for me. Offered a refreshing change of pace. Another solid ON product.

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard™ - Mocha Cappuccino:

      By far, the best tasting protein powder I've ever had. It mixes well and has a consistency of Nesquik chocolate milk. I've only just started using it, so I can't describe it's effectiveness. Also, there was a huge study recently of how much protein is actually in various brands of protein powder, and ON was ranked top, with having 98% of it's claimed protein content.

          Comments about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard™ - Mocha Cappuccino:

          While I am a beginner as far as serious lifting goes, I have been using protein shakes for quite some time. I have been searching for a quality coffee flavored protein for a while, and this is it! This stuff tastes great with water, but even better with 8 oz of 1% milk! I use a blender to mix, so that mixing is never an issue for me.

          I have tried other protein shakes such as Amplify, GnC Amplified, Dymatize, and MusclePharm and this is the best by far. They say you should not judge a protein powder by its taste, which I agree with, but there is nothing wrong with a good quality protein that tastes great too!

            Make sure to drink enough grams of protein for your weight. There are 24 grams per scoop so I drink 8 scoops a day (192g, I weigh 190 lbs). I workout 4 times a week. This stuff tastes great! Quickens recovery time.

              If you like those restaurant Mocha Cappucinos, blend this with milk or Almond Breeze then combine with ice in a blender for an icy drink that rivals those famous restaurant drinks. Absolutely delicious! (If you topped it with a squirt of whipped cream and a ribbon of chocolate syrup, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.....except this is better for you!) Excellent...kudos! I love this as a meal replacement and my weight-lifting son loves it as a workout recovery.
