Like other optimum nutrition products, this one produces awesome results too. As far as taste and mixabilty, it doesnt get much better than this product. If you are looking for gains in muscle and strength this is an awesome product. On the downside, you dont get near as many servings compared to other top proteins. So goong hand in hand the price is a spoiler also. Per serving, this is a very expensive product. If you can afford this product, then yes, use it. But if not i would use another one of the good proteins out there.
My overall experience with Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro whey was good. If you have no reservations about how much you will spend on supplements then Hydro whey is up there with the best it gets. The flavoring systems are like any other Optimum product top notch. They know if it does not taste good they are already losing out. It is lactose free so no problems for the lactose intolerant folks out there. Nothing but positives and gains when it comes to Hydro whey except the price which is going to reduce those financial gains.
Overall, this Hydrowhey is just okay. I have noticed its popularity has gone up quite a bit. I know a lot of my friends that are trying it, but I just don't think it's that great. The taste is just ok, especially the chocolate flavor. I am not a big fan of either of Optimum's whey proteins. Just think there are better options out there.
Hydrowhey is a VERY thin protein. It is meant to be processed differently than isolate, even more readily available for protein synthesis (muscle building). It is a tasty product, and ON is a great brand, but you will be paying more than you need to. The results just don't increase in correlation to the price. It is very effective, but no more than an isolate, or even a concentrate for that. Really, if you are reading reviews for more information than flavour (which, as with almost all ON wheys is great), then you should not get it.
Optimum Nutrition has always been the best brand for protein products. They give you the best quality for the best price, Hydro Whey is amazing, I saw my recovery faster so that affected my strength gains and muscle growth significantly. The taste is great as well the only bad thing is the price and the amount of servings it has. Best thing to do is buy Hydro Whey and 100% Gold Whey and use half a scoop of each to have 2 different sources of protein that absorb at different fast rate.
Optimum Nutrition Platinum HydroWhey is ON's Premium Whey Protein. It is very high quality and is hydrolyzed meaning even better absorption. This protein is ideal either first thing in the morning or immediately following a workout. I was given 2 samples by ON to try and here is my review of it. Taste: 6/10 I tried my first sample mixed into my PW work with some carbs. Then my 2nd samples I mixed into my oatmeal the following day for breakfast. Both times I was disappointed in the taste. The first thing I noticed was that it was very bland. It wasn't nearly as delicious as some other Cookies & Cream protein powders I've used. I feel ON Cookies & Cream Casein is AlOT better. Secondly it didn't really taste much like Cookies & Cream and had a strange aftertaste. It wasn't bad to drink but certainly wasn't anything special either. Mix-ability 10/10 No problems here whatsoever. Mixes great without clumping or not dissolving properly. I know the protein itself is high quality and all but I wish the taste was better. The price point is also a bit steep for my liking..
Platinum Hydrowhey is a great tasting good clean protein! I'm a big fan of this.
