Description

Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight. They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists. That’s why they are the first ingredients you read on the 100% Whey Gold Standard label. By using Whey Protein Isolates as the primary protein source, Optimum Nutrition have been able to pack 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving, with a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without. There’s no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.

Directions
Shaker: Just pour in 180-240ml (6-8oz) of water or your favourite beverage, then add 1 rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

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 flavour with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 120-180ml (4-6oz) of water, milk, or your favourite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 240-300ml (8-10oz) of liquid per scoop.

Spoon Stirred: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTISED. Just add 1 rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 180-240ml (6-8oz) of water or your favourite beverage, then mix up with a spoon. Stir for about 30 seconds, or until powder is completely dissolved.

Blender: Add 1 rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 180-240ml (6-8oz) of water or your favourite 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 fruit, 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 with creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

"Good product, I like that it is available in bigger sizes like 4.5 kg. I am a fan of buying in bulk and I like products like this. "

"Fantastic overall product for myself, has all the protein i need and the flavour is great. I chose Vanilla Ice Cream as I hate the taste of anything containing chocolate."

"This is the second tub I have bought. I like this brand as its easy to mix especially with water and comes out smooth every time no matter if I use a nutribulltet or shaker. The finished product isn't heavy on my stomach or overly sweet nor does it leave an after taste."

"Excellent product. Quick service and a great price. If you keep this same standard I will only be shopping here for supplements from now on. Many thanks "

"Brilliant protein top quality what you have come to expect from Optimum Nutrition. Cookes & Cream tastes great with milk but takes a little getting used to with water. Won't be using any other product."

Q&A
Q (On the tub) Does is say manufactured in the U.S.A.? I have bought one from Amazon but I am returning it as it is not an original USA product.
A

Yes it is manufactured in the USA but has a EU compliant label. On the corner of the label it has the american flag in black and white.

Q can i take a 100% whey product like this with an all-in-one product?
A

Yes. Use as needed.

Q Do you guys sell any protein powders that would be suitable for lactose intolerance.
A

Soy and Egg proteins are lactose free. Soy is not as effective for muscle gains as egg and whey though (whey is best). Whey "Isolates" are very low in lactose - so low that most people who are lactose intolerant will have no trouble digesting it. Isolates with minimal lactose are: Universal Ultra Iso Whey, Prolab Isolate, Isatori Whey Isolate WPi.

Q Do you know if you will be getting the new platinum hydrowhey anytime soon and do you think it will be more effective than reflex whey or phd pharma whey?
A

Yes, we will be getting this at some point but it isn't available in Britain yet. You should take a look at VP2 by VyoPro. This product is also a premium, hydrolysed whey protein isolate. Not only that but this product has been proven to cause dramatic increases in muscle and strength as compared to other protein products in scientific research. See the links - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/p/1096/g/1/v/product/ast_vp2_whey_isolate.htm & http://www.astss.co.uk/prodView.asp?idProduct=9

Q Hi again, great site guys! one thing i forgot to mention is that i weigh 230 pounds, at the mo i'm consuming about 100g carbs mainly through oats and Brown Rice and salads, fruit n veg etc. So will the Phd pharm whey would be a better option than the Optimum nutrition? if i'm trying to loose maximum body fat and hold on to much muscle as possible? and is it okay to continue with BCCA 6000 maxx 2 to 3 times a day? will it also be safe and ideal for me to take a CLA product, a Carbs & Fat blocker and green tea and Creakic or would i need to hold back and on one if so which one of these? will you guys be getting the PLATINUM HYDROWHEY in any time soon? Thank you for the advice.
A

Either of those wheys will work fine. More BCAAs are always beneficial. All of those products will help. In order of which is most effective: 1. Creakic 2. BCAA 3. Green Tea 4. CLA 5. Fat & Carb Blocker. Yes, Platimun Hydro Whey should be available quite soon.

Q Hi, I wanted to know whether or not this product contains L-Arginine? Would you be able to recomend me a few top protein powders that don't contain this as I have a skin condition that is made worse by this ingredient. Many thanks
A

As mentioned , virtually all protein powders and quality protein foods contain arginine. Whey protein contains about 0.5 grams of arginine per 30 gram serving. I believe some research suggests L-lysine may counteract arginine's effects on cold sores and other skin conditions.

Q Hi, I was looking for a good protein that doesnt contain L-Arginine in it due to a skin problem. Would you be able to recomend some please? Many thanks
A

Unfortunately all protein powders will contain Arginine in some amount. If you know for sure Arginine is the cause of your skin problem (ie if it's a cold sore, etc) then you could try upping your Lysine. Otherwise just decrease your protein intake. Stay away from soy, pre-workout products and NO products until the skin returns to normal.

Q hi, I just wondering if i can you use Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold as high snack protein just one shake a day, as im eating 8 egg whites and chicken breast I am doing a lot of intense cardio and compound exercises so looking for a protein shake to boost my protein intake? heard really good reviews about this product and also contains a lot amino's. has this shake got the most amino's out of the best brands? I'm trying to reduce body fat as much as possible whilst holding on to the muscle i have gained. I also take Maxx Essentials BCAA 6000 Maxx and glutamine twice a day. Are they other protein shakes that i can take? i like promax but found it way to expensive! Is PHD Nutrition Pharma Whey? any good ( the amino's look low? in it? Sci-MX Pure Protein GRS-5 any good? seems a lot of good reviews? Reflex Micro Whey? or any other brand with high amino's, and low carbs and fat! Thanks!
A

Generally, unless extra aminos are added to a whey protein, the one that has the bigger serving size (bigger scoop or more scoops), or has a higher percentage of protein and fewer carbs and fat will have more aminos. This is because protein is simply chains of aminos - so protein is made exclusively of aminos. I think you are comparing the aminos improperly between Optimum and Pharma Whey. On a per gram basis, Pharma Whey has more of the crucial aminos like BCAAs, arginine and cysteine (parly because they have added extra of these aminos to Pharma Whey). When you compare these labels you have to make allowances for the fact that one gives a "grams per 100 gram" amount of aminos, whereas the other gives a "milligram per serving" amount. A serving is only 31 grams and there are 1000 milligrams in a gram. The other thing you should conseder taking is some kind of creatine product. As you are trying to get lean, go for regular creatine monohydrate powder to add to your shakes or use tablets (the best deal right now is the Creakic, as it is a big serving for a tablet and has lipoic acid).

Q Hi, I have used a fair few of the big brand proteins; namely sci-mx, reflex (who I find to be useless), maximuscle promax, pharma whey and gold standard. Which do you think is the best overall?
A

Protein supplements are designed to help you meet your protein requirements, which can improve recovery and muscle growth. The best for gains is Nitro-Tech, as it contains other ingredients beyond just whey protein for muscle gains and has been proven superior to other protein products. However, you have to meet your calorie needs to gain muscle also. Finally, adding creatine to your protein, this will yield increased gains.

Q Hi, I want to use animal pak + animal stack-found it easier to swallow with protein drink. Did they mix good?
A

They are fine to take together but you would ideally want to have some other food too as multi vitaminsm, etc are better taken on a slightly full stomach.

Q hi, im looking to put on mass and i use bsn truemass and muscletech celltech would this be any help to me to stack it with. thanks
A

Yes. This product would be great to add into any part of your day, especially with breakfast and post workout. We would also recommend you add a Casein product to your stack to ensure a steady flow of amino acids in the blood stream while you sleep which can help enhance recovery.

Q Hi, when are Mocha and double choc flavours going to be back in stock?
A

1-2 weeks. Please check web site for availability.

Q hi..how do i teke whey gold standart,how many times a day.
A

This depends upon your diet and upon what other supplements you may be taking. If you eat 3 high-protein meals per day, then take the whey protein in between meals and especially after workouts (with a large amount of carbs). If any of your meals tend to be moderate to low in protein, take a serving of whey before that meal (for example, if you only have cereal and milk or toast for breakfast, have a whey shake before hand). If you take a post-workout supplement, then check to make sure it contains enough protein (minimum of 20 grams). If it doesn't, then I would have a shake immediately after training and then your post workout product of choice. Also, any post-workout drink should also contain creatine.

Q how do i get the free samples to see what flavor i want ,thanks
A

We don't often get free samples of Optimum products, so not sure where you may get these. You will probably just have to buy a small (909 gram) container, as samples are hard to come by. If you like strawberry, try PhD Pharma Whey - it is probably the best-tasting strawberry whey protein available on the market.

Q I am currently using PHD Diet Whey as a whey protein, will this O.N. Gold Standard be a good substitute? My goal is fat loss. Thanks
A

Gold standard is one of the best wheys on the market but it dose not contain the added cal, green tea and L-carnitine Diet whey dose. You may see better results stacking Gold Standard with a decent fat burner like Grenade.

Q I am new too all this. My goal is to loose weight and tone up. Would someone starting out be ok to use something like Whey Protein and a fat burner like Thermobol? Or a Diet Whey such as Phd Diet Whey with a fat burner?
A

Yes this is perfectly fine.

Q I am planning to buy the 4.5kg bag of optimum nutrition gold standard whey, but i want the double chocolate flavour. When will you have this flavour?
A

The Chocolate flavour is currently in stock.

Q I have been using ON 100% whey as a my main protein now for a while. I am due to buy some more protein but am not sure if there are better products out there. What do you believe is better than ON 100%whey? I was thinking of going for the ON 24hr pack and given cassein a go
A

If you go long periods between meals or meals with a lot of quality protein or if you don't eat before bed, then casein/combo proteins are useful. If this is not the case and you take protein after training, then go for whey protein. Basically, Optimum is good but so is Nitro-Tech (probably the best but also expensive), PhD, and others.

Q Is this product suitable for vegetarians?
A

Whey protien is derived from milk and is therefore a dairy product. So if you eat dairy, you're fine to have this product. If not, don't. For the best info on whey protein and amino acids, see - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/36 - which is on protein and amino acids and how to best use them.

Q the best nutrition flavour is .
A

Strawberry is the best seller but everyone's taste is different, so I wouldn't want to make any guaruntees.

Q what would you recommend Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard or PhD Nutrition Pharma Whey for seroius gainers???
A

Optimum gold standard and Phd pharma whey are two of the biggest selling whey proteins on the market. You really can't make the wrong decision by trying either. If we look at cost per serving then Phd is very good as you receive 90 servings per 2.2kg container as opposed to 77 servings from Optimum gold standard. Protein content dose differ slightly though as per single scoop Phd only offer 18.5g of protein where as gold standard offer 24g of protein. Either way both products are winners.

Q when are you getting the tropical punch flavour back?
A

We think we should have some in by Friday.

Q Which is the best product for adding lean muscle?? Optimum nutrition gold standard, Reflex instant whey or PHD pharma whey??
A

All of these are quality whey proteins. Optimum is a bit more expensive but not superior qlality. Reflex and PhD are similarin terms of levels of protein, carbs and fat but PhD adds taurine, glutamine and BCAAs and tastes better, so I would go with the Pharma Whey.

Q which would you recommend as a better protien powder for lean muscle growth aswell as size....100% whey gold or nitro-tech(expence is not an issue)....thanks
A

Both are exceptional protein powders but the difference between the two is Nitrotech contains creatine which will help dramatically with improving muscle size and strength. Alternatively you could purchase a separate creatine product from optimum nutrition and simply add this into your whey protein.

Q will this make my muscles bigger and stronger?
A

With the correct diet and training regime, whey supplementation will aid muscle recovery and protein synthesis, but to reiterate, it serves as a supporting mechanism to a good nutrition and exercise routine.

Q Will you guys be getting Platinum Hydro Whey anytime soon?
A

Yes, we expect this product in shortly.

Q Hello, I just wanted to ask when will be in stack on gold 4,5kg? And do you offer some discounts when buying more supplements? Thanks
A

Hi we now have 4.5kg bag in stock, we usually have regular deliveries of this brand so keep checking the site. We currently offer a 2% multi buy discount.
