Warnings: Contents sold by weight, not volume. Keep out of reach of children.
Notes: Contains milk and soy. This product contains ingredients of international and domestic origin.
Recommended Use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.
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 scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a glass filled with 6-8 fl 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 powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.
Blender: Add one 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.

It's an ok protein. Very sweet tasting. Dissolves quite well and doesn't clump too bad. I still prefer the Syntha 6 Vanilla to this one. Plus, the Syntha 6 is a little cheaper and the ingredients are very similar.

Loved the taste of this 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition. It tastes great either mixed with water or almond milk. It doesn't leave a weird after taste like some other proteins i've tried. It's very convenient because I can throw a few scoops in my shaker cup and go. It breaks down smooth which I love.

A great tasting whey protein. Optimum Nutrition makes some of the best value for protein in the industry. The flavor is good and the product mixes easily. I add it to a shaker bottle with only water and it taste good. Overall I think this Whey or any of the standard wheys. Y Optimum are worth the money.
