Label Facts


Whey protein is extremely popular with hard-training athletes because it digests rapidly and is a rich source of amino acids that are essential for muscle growth and recovery. Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey protein and that’s the reason they are the primary ingredient in Gold Standard 100% Whey. Each serving is packed with 24 grams of rapidly-digesting whey protein while having low levels of fat, lactose and a lot of other stuff you can do without. There's no doubt that this product can be considered the ‘gold standard’ of protein supplements.
  • 24 g of protein per serving!
  • Packed with whey protein isolates (WPI)
  • Includes hydrowhey -- hydrolyzed, low molecular weight whey peptides to make protein faster-acting.
  • Contains lactase and aminogen digestive enzymes to enhance utilization
  • Provides over 4 grams of glutamine and glutamine precursors and more than 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) in each scoop
This product is a specially priced item. Additional discounts do NOT apply.
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 68 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 68 ounces of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 2530 seconds. Mixing one scoop with 68 fl 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 68 fl oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 2030 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Shake 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. 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.

I love this protein, Gold Standard all the way! Mixes very well, not overly sweet (have tried strawberry banana, strawberry), leaves me feeling nice and full.
