Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Reviews

Bryant Torres

This is probably the best protein on the market today. It tastes delicious and it's very effective. It has added BCAAs for recovery and you get a lot of servings. The only problem is that it's a little bit pricey, but sometimes you have to waste a few more dollars to get the most out of your protein

Boone

Whey Protein Gold is a great Buy and awesome results! I've dropped 17 Pounds in 2 weeks using this along with Casein as a inbetween meal substitute. Amazing boost in recovery and endurance.

    Where do i begin with this review. Optimum nutrition protein is probably on the best proteins on the market and the price is unbeatable. I buy like 2-3 at a time. I love the taste and the price. It has a lot of protein in it to. I love all of their products but especially the protein. I dont like alot of the proteins on the market because of the taste but this is a great product. No complaints.

    Optimum nutrition has gained a respected reputation over that past few years. I have been a fan of many of their products, especial those along the lines of recovery. Gold standard whey comes in a decent range of good tasting protein powders. Chocholate and vanilla are almost always a good choice, but they have flavors like banana creme and cookies and cream if you are interested. With 24 grams of protein per scoop and 1g of fat to 1 gram of sugars per serving, it is hard to go wrong with this choice. Overall a well rounded good tasting product for a decent price. It is protein powder and as long as it helps you recover (its job) theres not much more to it.

    This is one of the most popular protein powders on the market and for good reason. The nutritional profile is amazing, good amount of protein and almost no fat. Gold Standard whey is great for recovering after hard workouts or do get your morning started with a protein shake. Not only is this product effective for recovery and daily protein intake, but it also tastes great. They have ton of flavors on the market so they really have something for everyone. My personal favorite is the extreme milk chocolate.

    Profile is really good. Most of my friends use this protein and love it. I know quality of this products is high. I have only tried milk chocolate and TBH didn't like it much. Would say 8/10. Texture was also on the thinner side (prefer thick). Overall it's a solid protein and would definitely suggest.

    I love the ON products and this protein doesn't disappoint when you take it regularly. It tastes great (I like vanilla) and mixes easily with fruit, oats, yogurt, and other stuff. This is pretty expensive and there are others out there just as effective at a cheaper price. With that said, I have always enjoyed ON products and will recommend to a friend.

    Quality = Top Notch! Clear product labeling, no hidden "blends".
    Mixability = Perfect. Shaker bottle recommended but not required.
    Flavor = I kid you not it tastes JUST like chocolate milk with an "extreme" amount of chocolate. :)
    Texture = Blends smooth with no grit left to wash out at the bottom of the glass.

    Highly recommended for supplemental protein intake and general daily nutrition requirements.

    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.

    If you hang around long enough you may hear of various issues with protein companies claiming higher percentages of protein and under-delivering.
    However Optimum is a reputable brand. The protein is an isolate/concentrate blend. It is quite thin, so best for shakes but not for baking. ON has a good variety of flavours and you can rest assured that you are getting what you have paid for.
    Recommended.

    Overall, this is just an average protein. Because it's whey, I used it after working out. It worked ok, but it didn't have a great taste. I would recommend taking it with milk, not water. It gets the job done, but nothing more than that. It's Optimum brand, so it will be pretty popular, but there are definitely better, cheaper options out there.

    This is my first time using any type of protein or supplements and I was pretty nervous about taste/texture etc. This mixes very well and isn't chunky at all for me. It smells really good in the container, but if you don't wash your shaker out quickly it can smell unpleasant. This tastes just like a yahoo to me and I'm pretty picky about what I drink/eat - I can't compare it to others, but I just bought my 2nd container of this. I can't speak to gains because I injured my shoulder as I was starting to see them and now I'm starting over after a month or so off.

    100% gold standard is hands down the best whey protein there is out there. From taste to quality, nothing I've had compares. There are better tasting proteins out there, but they come chalk full of added sugars. ON has found a way to add the bare minimum and still ensure a great taste. I use to only use a protein sold at wally world but since trying ON 100 gold standard I have not went back. Recovery is greater, strength is greater. I was getting inferior and lesser amounts of protein from my previous whey.

    I bought 5 lb of Banana cream Gold standard whey proteins and was not disappointed. Even though taste is subjective for everyone, I would say it tastes awesome, even if you mix it with just water. Powder dissolve really quickly - couple shakes and its ready for drinking, no crumbs or anything. 24 g of protein along with 5.5g of BCAA per scoop is just right after workout.

    I am trying to gain weight, so I do the following for my after workout shake:

    0.5 litre of whole milk
    1 banana
    1 apple
    8 halves of walnuts
    2 spoons of ice cream
    1 scoop of this whey protein powder

    Delicious! =) But don't do it if you are trying to lose weight or lower your fat %age.

    Great product at a reasonable price and good quality. Used this one for numerous years and made significant muscle gains. I switched to their Natural version just to avoid the artificial sweeteners considering you consume them in your soft drinks, your pre-workout, your intra-workout. But can't blame the product for this, as that is the standard in the supplementation industry.

Have been using for a few months now and it is great. The price here is wonderful. Thought about stopping in at a GNC a few weeks back to pick some up while I waited for a new shipment....NAH! The GNC price for the 5lb tub was over $110! I pay less than $60 with shipping here. Great stuff!

    Optimum Gold Standard is arguably one the best all around whey proteins on the market. Depending on the site or store you get it at, it ranges from 40-50 $'s for 5 pounds. Unlike other brands where they offer you 2-5 flavors, optimum has a plethora of various flavors. I have tasted alot of terrible tasting protein in my life, and although Gold standard isnt the best, every flavor is worth trying and you dont have to choke it down. This protein is often a top seller on a majority of respected supplement retail websites for a reason, you cant go wrong with buying this brand.
