I bought this to add to my workout routine. I'm trying to build muscle now and I drink this after my weight lifting workouts. I looked at the ingredients and price on many products and decided on this brand--I got the natural chocolate and vanilla ice cream flavors. Both of them taste great. They seem to have the best ingredients if your looking for minimal artificial ingredients. This does not bother my irritable bowel syndrome--and believe me---most products cause lots of gas and bloating. This does not. I highly recommend this product. One point--I found out the Vitamin Shoppe sells this for about $2 cheaper and you can just walk right in and buy it and not wait for shipping.

Both my wife and I had decided fairly recently to start using protein powder after our workouts. We started with some unnamed protein powder, but my wife started getting migraine headaches. After looking at the ingredients, we decided it was possible that they were due to the artificial sweeteners. I looked around online, and had a heck of a time trying to find a whey protein which did not use artificial sweeteners. Which is where this protein came in.

We have now tried all 3 flavors of Natural, the Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry. My wife's headaches have gone away, which is always a good thing.

My wife and I both disliked the Vanilla. There was something about the flavor we didn't like. There are lots of good descriptive words for sight (bright, dim, yellow, flashing, etc), but nothing much for taste. Too bad. Anyway, we didn't like it.

I am a fan of the Strawberry. I sometimes drink it with water (it's just fine), but with soy milk (I'm a recent soy milk convert) it tastes very close to strawberry milk. I don't mind gulping protein powder just to get it over with, but the strawberry with soy milk was basically at the point that I would enjoy the drink. Excellent!

My wife is a fan of the chocolate. She said it's very similar to normal chocolate powder, which is a good thing, since I've had chocolate protein powders in the past which did not taste like normal chocolate :)

Texture wise, they mix pretty good. We have screw top bottles we use to mix the protein, we pour in the liquid, give it a few seconds of shaking, and then can drink. Usually I wait for the foamy liquid to settle, I don't like drinking foam.

This product seems ok so far. I'm by no means an expert on health supplements, but I took the advice of someone who seems to know a lot about bodybuilding who suggested this product. If you're interested in this product, and health and fitness generally, check this guy out, scooby1961 is his YouTube account name. He has a website and many videos full of helpful nutrition and exercise information. No, I'm not in any way related nor do I know him personally, I'm just a member of his audience. He recommended this whey protein as it is 100% natural, something he points out is preferrable. I enjoy the taste and flavor, I went with vanilla because I don't just drink this with milk or water, I put it with other ingredients in the blender and make shakes or smoothies, whatever you might call them. I'll do 1 cup fat free milk, 1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt, two teaspoons artificial sweetner, about 1 cup ice, 140 grams (recommended serving size) of frozen fruit that I defrost in the microwave about 1 minute to blend well, and finally 1 scoop of this protein powder. This makes 4-5 cups and between 355 and 385 calories, no fat. I have been using this as my first meal of the day for about 5 weeks now, so far so good. I realize this is probably more info than anyone reading this might have been after, but I thought I'd include for the heck of it, maybe it's helpful for someone out there. Take care.

Jonathan

Flavor Name: ChocolateSize Name: 5 lb
I'm a woman and not a body builder, but I love this protein powder for a super quick breakfast or an evening snack. It gives you clean burning energy, so to speak, without the blood sugar crash of candy bars or other less than optimal snack products. It dissolves well with some vigorous shaking in any sealed container--I just use an ordinary bowl-shaped tupperware container.

It contains no fructose, and is barely sweetened with stevia extract. That's fine because I can add my own sources of sweetness in the form of organic soy milk that I buy in bulk from Costco. I had my family try it and they couldn't tell this apart from ordinary ovaltine or chocolate soy milk. Even if you're using water or milk, unless you're hyper vigilant about sugar intake, adding a bit of your own sweetener (I hate artificial sweeteners, I'd rather add raw, real sugar) would still bring your sugar intake far below most of those other "protein shake" products out in the market while still delivering a dose of high quality protein (whey is superior to all other sources of popularly available protein powders according to the sources I've researched).

This is the 2nd flavor of Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard Natural Whey that I have tried and so far, I am very pleased with the product. As an endurance athlete, I use protein to help recovery and slow catabolization.

The powder is "instantized" and mixes fairly easily in a shaker and very well in a blender with a touch of ice.

The taste is more than acceptable. It is mildly flavored with just enough sweetness for my tastes.

At 130cal/ 24g protein/ 1g fat per scoop, it is what I would consider on the lower calorie side of protein supplements. Those of you heavily bulking might want to seek out a gainer.

My main draw to this product was due to a lack of artificial sweeteners like acesulfame potassium/aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, ect that seem to overwhelm the supplement markets these days.

If you want a full meal replacement, you can make a really good smoothie by adding 2 scoops of protein, 1 banana, 1 carrot, 1/2cup spinach, 1/4 cup of raw broccoli florets, 2tbs of peanut butter, 2tsb of honey, and some ice. Add water to reach desired consistency. I like it on the think and chunky side. Really great after a 2+hr run.

Going to try the 5lb of Strawberry next time.
