Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey and the main ingredient in Gold Standard 100% Whey™. Each serving provides 24 grams of rapidly digesting whey protein with low levels of fat, cholesterol, lactose and other stuff you can do without making Gold Standard 100% Whey™ the standard all other proteins are measured against.

As one of the few companies to own and operate state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities that are GMP compliant and NSF Certified for Sport, ON assures that every shake will mix up effortlessly because of its first-to-market instantization process. You also expect each shake to taste the same as the last and your next. That's the kind of consistency ON delivers.
HISTORY & HERITAGE
Optimum Nutrition is legendary for both quality and innovation. In addition to producing the world's best-selling whey protein, ON's Gold Standard 100% Casein™ introduced slow-digesting nighttime protein to the weight training world and Amino Energy created the anytime energy category in sports nutrition. When technology makes advancements possible, ON will be the company bringing it first to your shaker cup.
To encourage a positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
180 lb x 1g protein/lb body weight = 180g daily
180g divided by 6 small meals = 30g of protein per meal
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, you can 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 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity 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: 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 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.
BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ 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 fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery 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, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.
Mixes easily and tastes great. Free opti-bars were a plus.
Great by itself, with powdered peanut butter, and/or cinnamon
Overall a great product.
Optimum has always been the way to go for me...easy to blend and delightful to the stomach!
Best protein that I have used.
I love the way this mixes, goes down very smooth, and the taste is great. I have seen very good results so far. Works!!!
I would recommend this one to every one It
This the best ive ever taken. Does exactly what i need. Taste is incredible.
Great for days I cannot eat like I need to.
This product mixes better than most protein powders I've tried, even if you mix with skim milk. I tried Mocha cappuccino flavor, not too bad, but I wouldn't order that flavor again.
Even after I mix fruit with it the taste is less than I anticipated.
I will try another flavor next time. My son had the cake batter and that was very good.
Price is good and flavors are awesome. It's not chalky like other brands I've tried. Strawberry Banana and Mocha Cappuccino are the best ones.
Best flavor in the entire lineup. I like to mix this with my black coffee in the morning as well.
The only negative point I have is that I wish this product was $5 to $10 cheaper but I know I cannot go wrong with this brand, especially compared to other websites. Quality, Value and Taste is great as far as I'm concerned. I refuse to purchase any other brand of whey protein.
My taste buds informed me that this is the most delicious protein I have ever allowed them to indulge in! Reasonable price compared to the competitors but the protein did arrive broken which shouldn't happen. Overall, a nice product.
a little pricey but good amount of protein and a great taste (strawberry)
I have used gold standard for about a year solid now. Used it before I took some time out of the gym prior to that. I feel it does what it is supposed to do. The taste isn't amazing but it is a protein shake and it is better then others I've tried. Mixes for the most part well. Switching to try out a new protein but wouldn't mind coming back to this if I don't like the other.
ON is the leader in the protein game. Quality is great no protein bloat. Taste good not chalky. The price is a little up there but worth it overall
Can't go wrong with Gold Standard. Great taste, but the price has gone up recently.
Chocolate mint tasted terrible. I have been taking supplements for years, and with water alone its tough to swallow. Strawberry Banana is great.
Performance I would give it a 6. My favorite Whey protein by far!
It's not Optimum's highest quality protein, but it is a superior protein. The taste is good, but not great. Decent price and value for ON.
Price is great and so is taste - good bang for the buck
never had an issue with this powder...i like the moca flavor and i drink thee shakes a day mixed with almond milk...consistent taste and servings per jug and doesn't kill my bank account
Though it might be a little on the pricier side, you really cant complain when it comes to the flavor and smoothness of this product. I have tried many of the flavors, and my favorite is Chocolate Mint. It mixes really well with Almond or regular milk for that actual shake consistency. My mix standard: handful of ice cubes, 1 cup of Almond milk, 2 scoops powder. You cant go wrong.
Best tasting powder i've used! You get a lot for you money with 74 servings!
This latest tub of protein I picked up was the Cake Batter flavor. I have to say I was expecting more with the flavor. It's not bad, it just lacks flavor in my opinion, so I'm neutral on this one. It still digests well with me, and I love ON products. Haven't strayed from them yet because they work so well. I'll try a different flavor next time around as well and report back!
My last tub of ON Whey I got the Cookies & Cream flavor. It's fantastic, but you get a few less servings per tub. For some reason, it also tasted a little saltier than the previous Double Rich Chocolate flavor I used.
Best tasting protein powder I've had. Price could be cheaper, like when ON was new on the market.
Its a bit pricy but pretty tasty over all
One of the best tasting proteins in the market. This protein blends great with any shaker cup and goes down smoothly. There's a lot of serving in each tub so you get your money's worth when buying this protein.
Coming from Syntha-6 I have a strong love for protein shakes. However, Syntha-6 is 200 calories with only 22g of protein, compared to ON's 115cal and 24g of protein, I had to make the switch (Syntha-6 Isolate is much more expensive). I'm starting with delicious strawberry, I wouldn't say it's "delicious" but it is definitely drinkable. Overall though, it's a great protein especially for the price.
Not only does this protein taste great, mixes well and has an amazing price point, it works great in my morning protein pancakes. Cake batter is delicious.
I love this stuff. Not only is it great tasting, it doesn't give me stomach issues. I use it as a meal in the morning, and I usually have one right after my workouts. It may be a little pricier than other protein powders, but I've had great luck with it so far!
Ive been experimenting with protein powders consitantly for years and years over my time as a special ops assaulter and I have to say this has been the best powder Ive used for the cost
In my opinion hands down the best protein available. It mixes well, tastes great, and for sensitive stomachs like me it digests perfectly no more room clearing protein farts for me. Plus only 115 calories a serving and very little fat so a good source of high quality protein if you are counting calories. Would recommend this to everyone. My favorite flavor is the cake batter with chocolate a close second.
