If you've been around the block a few times, then you'll easily spot a good protein when you find it. And Optimum Nutrition is it, whether you're using their Gold Standard or Pro Complex. Both have a solid protein and BCAA profile to give you exactly what you need for building, cutting, or maintaining lean mass (for those unfamiliar with the process, protein is vital for all three, just in different measures).

I've been using this brand for more years than I'd care to count, mostly to gain mass and help cut fat (at different times). For gains, I hit about a 35%p/25%f/40%c macronutrient ratio, using a couple scoops of ON per dose between meals, when needed, to keep the protein high, and once right after training to help with repair/recuperation. For cutting, I shift my ratios to 50%p/40%f/10%c, and it seems to work well. If I'm feeling more impatient to lean out, I'll bump to 55%p, but doing that means I have to sacrifice somewhere else, so I try to avoid it on the long-term. I'm not going to say my results are completely attributed to protein, since it takes a well-rounded regimen to see the best results. I also take glutamine, multis and creatine for both building and cutting, but I'll also add BELDT: Force Thermogenic for the cutting cycle to help accelerate the process. Above all else, nothing beats real solid food, no matter what you're doing. Shocking, I know. Unbelievable how many people think supplements alone are the answer.

Best way I've found to use this protein is 2 scoops (Double Rich Chocolate flavor) with about 8 ounces of coconut milk tossed in the blender with a handful of ice cubes. Or no ice, if it's just my Blender Bottle on hand. Either way, tastes great, goes down easy and gives you what you need. Not going to comment on sweeteners, because I've never really been concerned with those.

Flavor Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize Name: 5 Pound
As a fitness enthusiast and a Science guy, I am always curious to find the real value of a supplement. What works and what does not work. More importantly, I believe the analysis of a product should be based on strong scientific knowledge base, combined with good old fashion practical use of the product, and only then one should come down to the final conclusion.

This product review and analysis was conducted based on 3 parameters

A. Constituents: What comes in the box, the real value of the product
B. Assimilation: How does this product goes down in your system, how much of it will your body assimilate
C. Usability : Long term usability and and effects.

I believe this is one of the best supplements available in the market today. The Question is Why?

1. The Quality of protein. Since its manufactured by Glanbia (who owns Optimum nutrition), this product is coming straight from the manufacturer. This is a BIG factor, 90% of the protein supplement companies source their raw materials from third parties, often importing them from third world countries.

100 grams of Whey protein isolate from one source is NOT equal to the 100 gram Whey protein isolate from another. Inferior resources usually have high level of Heavy metals and cattle Hormones. This has been elucidated from recent tests and published widely in the consumer reports. ON aced this report with minimum levels of such harmful residues. Reason is simple, they make their own whey in a plant which has to abide all regulations under US law.

Just for the point of reference. I am from India, and therefore know first hand how many poorly regulated cheese plants export their whey to Europe and US. So make sure your Whey protein is coming from Whey extracted in the US!!

Flavor Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize Name: 5 Pound Verified Purchase
First off, I've purchased a bunch of different flavors of ON Gold Standard Whey. All of them have close to the same nutritional value, but they vary greatly in taste. Both my wife and I drink these protein shakes as part of our daily diet, and as a product, Optimum Nutrition is great. I've mixed with both milk and water, and all of the shakes mix well and don't seem to clump. I've tried other manufactures whey, and I keep finding myself going back to ON for the price, nutritional value, and above all the taste.

So the flavor question. As I mentioned, each flavor has a different characteristic from the others. Some are bland, some taste sweet, some taste overly fake. We loved some, and we hated some. Below is a list based on what we like so far and why. Bear in mind that I hate diet drinks for their bad aftertaste. The drinks don't have to be sweet for me to like them, but I can't stand the garbage aftertaste of fake sweeteners.

The best flavors:
Rocky Road - By far the single best tasting flavor. The downside is that it does taste a little sweet. The nutritional value is right on with the other flavors, but it is a bit sweet. I could drink this all day. If you only buy one flavor, this is it. There is no real aftertaste, and the flavor is great.

Extreme Milk Chocolate - Another good flavor with almost no aftertaste. This one tastes like chocolate, and doesn't have a fake taste to it. If you are looking at the chocolate flavors, this one is perfect.

Natural Vanilla - This is a slightly different product, and it comes in a tub with yellow labeling instead of the red. It's on Amazon for the same price, and it has the same nutritional values. They claim it has less artificial sweeteners in it, hence the natural label.
