Directions
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, 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 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
Tip: adjust the taste 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 cup: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a 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. Don't have a shaker cup? Visit your local health food store, gym, or optimumnutrition.com to order a custom ON shaker.
Blender: add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water 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 ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack your shake:. You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even better post workout 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, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.
Suggested use:
Consume enough protein to meet your daily proton requirements 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.
Notice: use this product as a food supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction.

Flavor Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize: 5 PoundPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I've done a lot of homework on different protein supplements, and found that ON is one of the best out there. I have attached the lab results of their label claims vs. actual ingredient, and it is more accurate than its peers.

Beyond that, this is one of the best tasting low carb/fat protein shakes out there. I dont find it too sweet at all and I can handle taking it every day for weeks and weeks without getting bored of the flavor. One thing I do know about flavors is that opinion highly varies between people, but you will find a ON gold standard whey that you love. Rocky Road/ Extreme milk chocolate/ Chocolate/ Double rich are all just chocolate variants, so start off buying a small container until you find the one you like the most!

I start my workouts off with a serving of Alpha Gx7 Pre-workout - Watermelon Flavor when i am on the way to the gym, approx. 15-20 mins before my workout. I bring a bag full of ON gold standard whey with me to the gym so when im finished my workout, I can immediately get a hit of protein to begin the process of muscle building as soon as possible!

DO NOT believe someone when they say "x flavor is the best!" and then go off and buy the 5lb tub and have to choke down something you hate. Test it out for yourself!

I would also like to note I am a normal guy, not a crazy fitness freak, so my suggestions are really for anybody to follow! If anybody is wondering ive just followed stronglifts 5x5.

Flavor Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize: 5 PoundPackage Type: Standard Packaging
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!!

One thing that you have to watch out for when buying whey isolate is if its pure 100% Whey isolate. The issue here is that if you are paying for 100% whey isolate (Its much more expensive to produce and sell), make sure you are getting what you pay for. For most people a blend is what you should be buying. I buy this along with this weight-loss supplement for my workout and fat loss regimen. Combining both has really helped me reach my long-term goals.

This is one of the best protein supplements that I have found, based on price, nutrition and quality of the protein.

The last important part when reviewing a protein powder, is solubility, and taste. I found that this was one of the best tasting protein powders I could buy. When its something you take after every workout, you definitely want it to taste good.

The manufacturer commented on the review below
Flavor Name: Naturally Flavored VanillaSize: 4.8 PoundPackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
UPDATE: As of Sunday February 1st, Amazon merged all the negative reviews in response to the new formula with the positive reviews from the old formula. The new formula had 2.5 stars prior to being included in these reviews! What a scam!

UPDATE 2X: As of Monday March 16th, Amazon separated the reviews from the old formula and this new formula. Great job Amazon!

UPDATE 3X: As of Monday June 1st, Optimum has clearly paid for FAKE REVIEWS in response to the extreme backlash by former customers. Read the reviews over the past 4 months, PAID FAKE REVIEWS. Buyer beware.

Not only did Optimum reduce the amount of powder and keep the price the same, they CHANGED THE FORMULA. This new "Naturally Flavored" powder now has sugar listed in the ingredients. We all know sugar is a processed food, which is NOT NATURAL. The original natural formula that we all loved contained evaporated cane juice powder as the sweetener. Compare your old 5lb tub to this new "Naturally Flavored" 4.5lb tub. NOT THE SAME.

Optimum also removed the patented ingredient Aminogen, owned by Triarco Industries, is added to high quality protein powders and other products to increase protein absorption and amino acid levels. NOT THE SAME.

This is deceptive marketing and a slap in the face to all loyal Optimum Nutrition customers. You are losing a customer of 7 years that spends over $3k on supplements annually. Don't be fooled by the paid FAKE REVIEWS in response to all the negative comments. Never again.

Since Optimum changed the formula, I've been purchasing MET-Rx 100% Natural Whey 5 Pound http://amzn.com/B0017I1XNC

This is the same trusted formula with the same ingredients as before. Each serving provides 24 grams of whey protein primarily from Whey Protein Isolates, 4 grams of naturally occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid, 5.5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs with no artificial flavors or sweeteners. What's new is we had the product certified as Gluten Free and also Banned Substance Free. Evaporated cane juice powder is sugar by another name, and in keeping with ON's commitment to transparency we changed the Facts Panel to reflect the more commonly used description of the ingredient.
