Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey Review

Packed With Whey Protein Isolates For Ultra-Fast Absorption

Optimum Nutrition makes one of the best complete protein powders on the market based on many factors including purity, taste and mixibility. As far as flavor goes, I love the Double Rich Chocolate recipe. As a result, I pretty much stick with Double Rich Chocolate as my only flavor and have no issues with it. I have tried other flavors without finding one that I just could not stand. But, some companies can produce protein powder flavors that are less that tasty. Optimum Nutrition is very thoughtful of their flavors.

As far as ingredients go, Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight. Therefore, they are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists. As a result, you had better make sure that Whey Protein Isolates are the primary protein source of any whey protein you are using. Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey packs 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving without the fat, cholesterol, lactose and other ingredients that you do not want in your protein powder.

Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolates
