Go to whey (Review by Nathan)

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard has been my favorite and go to protein for years now. It is good to know that you are getting a quality powder with a great macro nutrient profile. My favorite flavor is the extreme milk chocolate. It is on the sweeter side but very delicious, especially with milk. I use this whey when bulking and I need to get in the extra protein, and also for cutting when needing to hit my macros correctly. I would highly recommend this tried and true protein to anyone.

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard whey is by far my favorite whey protien supplement. The flavoring by far is the second to none. I have only mixed it with water so im sure with milk its incredible. Gold standard mixes great with little effort. Each scoop has a high protein content allowing you to meet your protein needs quickly. Also , made with quality ingredients and not full of carbs, fats, fillers, etc. May not be the cheapest protein supplement on the shelf but definitely well worth it. I would high recommend this to anyone with a muscle building goal in mind. (Posted on 5/19/2015)

Overall, this is just an average protein. Because it's Optimum brand, it will be very popular, but it's just not that great. I always used this when I was younger because it was the only one I knew, but there are so many better ones out there. This doesn't even have a very good taste. If you take it with water, it's not good. The price is just ok. (Posted on 12/13/2014)

Overall, this is an average protein at best. The taste is just ok. It's not very thick and potent, so there are definitely better tasting proteins. I used it right after working out, and it did ok. I would recommend the chocolate flavor, but others are ok too. This one is ok, but there are definitely better proteins out there. (Posted on 11/5/2014)

I have been using this product for years. I normally cycle different products to see which ones I get the best results from. When it comes to protein, every other product I have tried does not come close. Not only does Gold Standard taste better, and mix better, but I feel like each 10lb bag I go through adds a lbs of lean muscle mass to my body. I can feel a difference being on this product versus other popular protein products. Honestly, this is the only one that doesn't taste like dog poop. Nothing can touch it. (Posted on 8/23/2014)

This protein is the most popular for a reason. It has a ton of flavors to try and is really clean with good macros. It does mix a little thin so if you like thick shakes go with a blend instead of the pure whey. (Posted on 2/18/2014)

Great macros, great mixability, decent taste, great price.
Little fat and carb content, dissolves very easily even in shaker cups, and the price is great (let's hope there isn't another increase anytime soon)

Taste- Rocky Road is awesome when mixed with instant coffee and/or cinnamon. By itself I'd prefer chocolate, as I find there is a vague bittersweet aftertaste when taken alone with milk or water, but its definitely not a deal-breaker and obviously subjective to my personal taste.

Overall 4.5/5 stars. (Posted on 2/22/2013)

This is a good protein for daily use which is what most of us need. Honestly I do not taste much chocolate so I mix with less water and still don't taste chocolate. Don't get me wrong it does not taste foul - it has almost no taste - which may be good for some. So, if your used to Myofusion you will be disappointed in the yummy factor. Otherwise it is a great protein that mixes well and goes down smooth and the price per serving is hard to beat. (Posted on 2/21/2013)

Staff Reviews

Jeff Moriarty - This is one of my favorite "anytime" proteins. I take it on non-training days, when I need to add a little more protein for the day, or if I am up late and don't want to eat a big meal. It's not too expensive, but also not the best protein out there, but definitely not the worst either. I have tried quite a few different flavors. Mainly because we are given a lot of samples from Optimum. Some of them are just plain bad. There are a couple I do enjoy though. Vanilla, though I am not a fan of that flavor, is excellent to use in oatmeal, yogurt or smoothies. Mixes well and adds a good amount of protein to it. Flavors for mixing in water (or milk), but mainly water for me, would be Cinnamon Graham Cracker and Peanut Butter Chocolate. Both taste awesome. The cinnamon graham cracker is also excellent in oatmeal too. So basically if you are looking for a good "standard" "anytime" protein, it's pretty affordable and gets the job done.

Jenny - This protein powder is one of my favorite protein powders. I use this protein as my daily protein shake. I will usually drink a shake during the day as a snack or in between meals along with some fruit or a few walnuts. This protein mixes very easily and the taste is great. Extreme milk chocolate is my favorite.

FAQ

Q: Are there any side effects?

A: There are 2 cases where on would want to avoid Gold Standard Whey due to side effect(s).

1)       If are allergic to whey. Please note bovine milk allergy which includes both whey and casein proteins only affects ~0.1–0.5% of the adult population

2)      If you are lactose intolerant there is a small amount of lactose in Gold Standard whey in which case you can choose a whey protein isolate where the lactose is filtered out.

For more info on whey we have a video covering it in depth. Whey Protein Isolate vs. Concentrate vs. Hydrolysate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4jknqocpjQ

Q: When should I use it?

A: Gold Standard whey can be used anytime you need protein. Since whey protein is easily digested and provides a great, BCAA rich amino acid profile many use it around workouts (shortly before and/or after).

Q: What does it do?

A: First and foremost whey protein is one of the best proteins available for building muscle. It is the very rich in muscle building BCAAs (~24%). In addition to the great amino acid profile whey is also anti-carcinogenic, immune enhancing, and anti-microbial.

Q: How do I mix it? What can I mix it with?

A: There are a few ways you can mix Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey and you can mix it in water, almond milk, or milk depending upon your preference in terms of taste, texture, and desired calorie content (milk and almond milk add calories). Also it can be mixed in a smoothie w/ your favorite fruit and/or vegetable. How much liquid you use is based on your texture preference. It can be mixed with a spoon in a glass or a shaker cup.

Q: How much should I take?

A: For individuals looking to build/maintain muscle shoot for 0.85-1.25g of protein per pound of goal bodyweight (1.87-2.75g protein/kg/goal bodyweight). Please note this includes protein intake from other sources in addition to ON Gold Standard Whey. For instance if one’s goal bodyweight is 175 lbs (80kg) and one is getting 120g from other sources then one would want 55g from whey protein to reach aforementioned goals.

Q: How many scoops per bottle?

A: This varies based on the size and slightly by flavor. On average the scoops (servings) per bottles are as follows and have 24g of protein

-          2 lbs - 29 Servings (scoops)

-          5 lbs - 77 Servings (scoops)

-          10 lbs - 154 Servings (scoops)

Q: How many calories per serving?

A: This varies slightly by flavor. Please find the calorie content for each flavor of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein powder below. Also please note not all of these flavors are available in the 10 lbs size. 

  • Banana Cream 120 calories

  • Rocky Road 120 calories
  • Strawberry 110 calories
  • Tropical Punch 120 calories
  • Vanilla 120 calories

 

Q: Will it make me fat?

A: Whether or not one gains weight is based on total caloric intake relative to activity level. If your caloric intake exceeds the number calories burned then you gain weight. All of that being said a protein powder w/ very little carbohydrates and fat is not likely to make one fat. This is for 2 reasons first protein has the highest Thermic Effect of Food (TEF) amongst the three macronutrients. This means that after digestion one only gets ~75% of the calories from protein or 3/4 of calories per gram. Second protein is also the most filling macronutrient so the odds if it being the big contributor to a caloric surplus is minimal.  

Q: Will it help me gain weight?

A: Yes however it is generally not thought of as a weight gainer due it being low in carbohydrates and fat. That being said if your caloric intake from other sources is high this can certainly be part of a weight gaining diet.  

Q: What is the best flavor?

A: Based on sales data the chocolate is the best seller. For those looking to make fruit smoothies we recommend vanilla.

Q: Is it Gluten free?

A: According to Optimum Nutrition the only flavor that does contain gluten is the Gold Standard Cookies n' Cream flavor as the cookie pieces contain gluten. In regards to other flavors
 they state that they do not add gluten to Gold Standard Whey. That being said they cannot
say with 100% certainty that all of the other flavors are gluten-free. Optimum Nutrition uses
the same equipment to make products with and without gluten. Please note Optimum Nutrition cleans the equipment in-between runs however trace amounts of gluten may remain.

Q: Is it Lactose free?

A: ON Gold Standard whey is not 100% lactose free, however it is low in lactose. Also ON adds lactase to it which is the enzyme that breaks down lactose.

Q: Does it have caffeine?

A: Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein is caffeine free.

Q: Is it from plants or animals?

A: The protein in Gold Standard is whey protein. Whey protein is one of the two proteins in mammalian milk. In this case it is from bovine milk. Therefore if one is a vegan ON Gold Standard Whey is not suitable as it is an animal sourced product. This is a good supplement for Lacto-vegetarians.

Q: Does it contain any artificial ingredients/sweeteners/flavors?

A: There are two versions of ON Gold Standard Whey. The Natural 100% Whey Gold Standard version contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors.  It is sweetened with evaporated cane juice powder, natural flavors, and stevia (rebaudioside A). The original version is sweetened w/ natural & artificial flavors, and acesulfame potassium.

Q: Does it contain Aspartame?

A: No.

Q: Is it Kosher?

A: No

Q: Is this Vegan/Vegetarian friendly?

A: No animals are slaughtered to get whey protein as it is from bovine milk. It is an animal based protein so it is not in line with a vegan diet. For vegetarians it depends whether or not one is a lacto-vegetarian or not.

Q: Can this help with weight loss?

A:  In the context of a caloric deficit Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein can help with weight loss. In fact research demonstrates that nutrient dense; protein rich diets are superior for bone health, muscle growth, maintaining muscle tissue, and fat loss. In addition to being essential protein is the most satiating macronutrient with the highest thermic effect so it makes dieting easier and more effective.

Q: How many servings should I take per day?

A: Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein can be used to supplement one’s protein needs. The more protein on gets in from other sources the less servings one will need from Gold Standard Whey. Also one’s bodyweight will determine how much protein they need per day.  

Q: Does it come with a scooper?

A: Yes there is a scooper in each container.

Q: Can women take this or is it just for men?

A: ON Gold Standard whey is not gender specific so both men and women can use it.

Q: What flavors does it come in?

A:

  • Banana Cream available in 2 & 5 lbs
  • Caramel Toffee Fudge available in 2 & 5 lbs
