Product Information


24G Protein
5.5G BCAAs
4G Glutamine & Glutamic Acid

Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That's why they're the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey™ label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), we're able to pack 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. ON's attention to detail also extends to mixability. This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There's no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.

  • Free of Artificial Flavors and Sweeteners.
  • No Synthetic Colors.
  • 75% Protein by Weight (24g of Protein per 32g serving size).
  • Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) Main Ingredient.
  • Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolate and Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.
  • Over 4 Grams of Naturally Occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving.
  • More than 5 Grams of Naturally Occurring BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) in Each Serving.
  • The "Gold Standard" for Protein Quality.

Spoon Stirred: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is instantized. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
Tip:Adjust the taste of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

Shaker Cup:Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Don't have a shaker cup? Visit your local health food store, gym, or to order a custom ON shaker.

Blender: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water 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 fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack Your Shake: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even better post workout product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

Think Outside the Glass: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

Suggested Use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.

Best Protein on the Market
I have been using this protein for years. Before I used the regular whey until they came out with the natural line. Hands down the best. Ive tried GNCs brand, Muscle Milk, Isopure, etc and this one wins on nutrition and taste.

Such a delicous way to rebuild my health
In the past few months I have been ill and needed surgery. While I was recovering, I spent a few days at first with my sister and she introduced me to this product. It was great and I had no trouble digesting it. Plus, it was chocolate! I liked it so much, when I got home, I found a store near me and went and got both a chocolate and a vanilla in the large container. If you are sensitive to aspartame be cautious as they do also come in those sizes. I appreciated the natural sweetener product and that is what I bought.

Great Protein
This product tastes great. It's a little pricey, but my body responds well to it. I will continue to use this and I would recommend it highly.

Tastes great and great on the stomach.....
This is a fantastic tasting whey protein. I like that there are no artificial sugars/products (as a whole). And, who doesn't like a chocolate whey?!? Fantastic!
