Product Information


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.

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

  • 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

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.
Contains Milk and Soy (Lecithin) Ingredients.

Mixes easily; tastes good
Really like this protein. It mixes easily with a shaker bottle. I got the double chocolate and I like the flavor. I usually have to force down protein shakes but I actually really like this one. I have not tried the other flavors yet but I highly recommend.
My son is using after strength training workouts and he has gotten great results.

Like the product and good price. Doesn't have a ton of flavor (mixing with water). Not a big deal to me but might be for others.

Great alternative for breakfast
I have used this for several years now, and it is far and away the best tasting whey I've ever had! I always combine it with 2% milk for my breakfast every morning. I take it to work and keep it in my small office fridge/freezer until it gets slushy...Double Rich Chocolate is my favorite. It curbs my appetite until lunchtime so I don't overeat. Unlike other brands, its not too sweet for my tastebuds, it's just right, and the price is right also

Affordable and Tastes Great
I have tried a few brands of protein, and this one is my favorite. The price is affordable, and the chocolate flavor tastes great. This is the first protein shake I've actually enjoyed drinking. It tastes even better with a bit of cinnamon.

My favorite and only Whey protein I purchase. The French Vanilla Creme and chocolate malt taste absolutely wonderful.
