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
To encourage a positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1g 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. Example: 180 lb x 1 g protein/lb body weight = 180 g/day. 180 g divided by 6 small meals = 30 g of protein/meal. Each serving of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard provides 24 g of protein. Blender(Easy: a little more involved but worth the trouble) Add one scoop of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard to a blender filled with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Cover and blend for 20-30 seconds. Add 1-2 ice cubes then blend for an additional 30 seconds. Serve. For a delicious smoothie, try adding your favorite fruit, peanut butter, yogurt, shredded coconut, and/or other ingredients (along with the ice cubes) to your blended protein shake. (Don't forget to account for the calories, carbohydrates, protein, fat and other nutrients that these foods contribute to your shake.) Shaker(Easier: quick & convenient) Fill a shaker bottle with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Add one scoop of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard. cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Enjoy.

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.
