Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey

100% Whey Gold Standard utilizes Whey Protein Isolates as the primary protein source
Read more...

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."

"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 Are there any side effects (now or later) which are bad for health beacause of the usage of this product? I started using gym for 2 months (i am a new guy in this field) is it necessary to use this product just now or do i need to use this product after a long period? Thank you ...... Danuka
A

It is just protein. Think about eating a piece of chicken. Same principle.

Q Can this product be mixed with milk? Or it it just water?
A

This product can be mixed with water or milk - it won't affect the effectiveness of the product. Just be aware once mixed with milk you are adding extra calories, carbs and fats but also extra protein to the mix.

Q does product contain chicken or meat
A

No

Q Does this product contain any soy?
A

A small amount, yes.

Q Does this protein contain any sugar or artificial sweeteners?
A

Yes, it does - acesulfame potassium and sucralose.

Q Does this protein help loose weight?
A

Higher protein (lower carb) diets definitely help with weight loss and there is also research to show that whey protein is particularily good at increasing the feeling of fullness and so be even more effective than standard quality sources of protein.

Q Hello is this product suitable for lactose intolerants?
A

it has lactase in which helps with the digestion of lactose. Majority of people with slight lactose intolerances or mild cope well with this product. It often depends on the individual.

Q Hello! I am just wondering is this product suitable for a 17 year old. Because my son goes to gym every day and other whey proteins I looked for said they are not recommended for use below the age of 18.
A

Whey protein would be fine for 17 year olds.

Q Hello, Just would like to ask if 'Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey 912g' vegitarian.
A

Yes this product is suitable for vegetarians

Q hey i was just wondering what is the optimum amount of protein for a PWO shake , i mean could i have 1 scoop on ON GS whey and thats it with a banana ? how much is good , i am going to cut which would be good for me ?
A

Generally, you need at least 20 grams of high-quality protein to maximize protein synthesis but some studies indicate that more protein may be better (some studies have even gone up to 100g - but that's probably excessive). Guys usually use between 20 and 40 grams.

Q Hey, I'm 16 years old and weight 52kg, I really need to gain weight, which supplement is ideal and how many times a day should i take it? Thanks
A

We strongly suggest you eat more calorie dense foods for proper weight gain as you are still developing. You can add gold standard whey in if you wish.

Q Hi, I am about to add "Optimum 100% Whey" in my daily routine and wondering if you can guide me if its ingredient meets my requirement. If the product is suitable for vegetarians (Milk is ok for me) than its ok for me but if it is not then I want to confirm followings. Basically I am looking for a “Hillal” product. In case if you are not familiar with term “Hillal” then here is the definition. If it passes the below mentioned requirements then I will consider it “Hillal” and it will be ok for me. Product do not include Swine/pork and its by-products * Animals improperly slaughtered or dead before slaughtering * Animals killed in the name of anyone other than (God) * Alcohol and intoxicants * Carnivorous animals, birds of prey and land animals without external ears * Blood and blood by-products * Foods contaminated with any of the above products
A

This product is Hillal judging by your definition below.

Q Hi, due to working hours I can only visit the gym after work around 6.30pm, is it ok to take the shake straight after and then have my evening meal after? Also, does it contain any animal fat?
A

The small amount of fat in this product will come from the whey protein source which would be from milk fat which is derived from animals.

Q Hi, I am overweight, I currently visit the gym and do cardio with some light weights, I want to lose weight and get fit. I have changed my diet to a balanced healthy one. I was recommended this product would be ideal for me to take as part of my training. Would you agree?
A

Most definitely, this product is a great way to help you supplement with first class quality protein. If you would like to speed up the rate of fat loss, we would highly recommend combining a fat burner like Grenade, Lipo-6 Black, Xedra-Cut with this product for maximum results.

Q hi, i was told in Q&A that diet product such as PhD diet whey will not have added VAT i was also wondering does it apply to this protein shake as i plan to buy this sometime in the future just not right now ...and if so how much will it cost post VAT???
A

Yes diet proteins will not have the VAT increase but all standard Whey proteins will. It will be around an extra £8 on the price.

Q Hi, I'm a mother of an 18 months old son and still breast feeding him. I do exercise quite often but its hard for me to keep up with my protein intake. Will it be ok for me to use whey protein of any kind or any other supplement while it shouldn't effect my breastfeeding baby at the same time. Your advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
A

Hi, Whilst I cannot see any feasible reason why taking a whey supplement would cause any adverse health effects, and actually, consuming whey (especially a high quality product like Gold Standard 100% Whey) is likely to prove beneficial to your health (and that of your baby), it is always advisable that you consult with your GP, certified health visitor or similar, for clarification. I hope that addresses your query.

Q hi, im a pure veggie (no egg or fish) is this product feasible for veggies? and is the lecithin, from a egg or soya?
A

Just about sure (from looking at the label) that this is fine for veggies. The lecithin is from almost certainly from soy. However, you may want to try to contact Optimum Nutrition to confirm this.

Q Hi, trying to work out how much of this stuff to take? Roughly in scoops would be helpful. Have been on cyclone for 2 months but feel i need a bit more mass. Want to feed my muscle growth. Am 5,11 and around 75 kg and work out about an hour a day plus 30 minute run in the morning. cheers
A

If it is mass you are looking for then a standard whey protein is not going to help very much. You will need more calories and carbs as well as protein to help promote mass gains. Also if you are training everyday then this to will also hinder results when it comes to muscle growth as rest is just as important as training. Cardio for 30minutes everyday is also too much cardio to promote muscle gains and you will need to consuming around 500-1000 extra calories a day more than you are burning. We would recommend you try Optimums mass gainer “Serious mass” for better results.

Q How many full spoons fo 100% Gold Standard Whey should i use after a 1 hour and a half of weight lifting? Thank you.
A

This product comes with a scoop in the container and one scoop is 24g of protein. Take 1-2 scoops post training.

Q how would this compare to Myofusion in terms of taking it between meals? Which would stay in your body for longer? thanks
A

They both consist of virtually the same ingredients, Whey protein concentrate with other forms of whey. The time they stay in your system would be around 1-3 hours before you would need another meal to keep metabolism ticking over. The difference between these two would be taste, and that is down to the individual.

Q I am 17 years old and my height is 5' 9'' and my weight is 84kg (185 lbs) . I need to loose my weight. i go to the gym 5 times per a week, but still i didnt start cardiovascular excercises, but i hope to do. Is this product more suitable for me? When i start my cardiovascular excercises will my body fat burn with the help of this? Please help me!
A

Yes cardio is essential for decreasing body-fat but weight is just as, if not more important at burning calories. Add 2 HIIT (High intensity Interval training) sessions a week and the weight will soon start to shift BUT don’t over train. 3 weight training days 2 cardio days or even cardio after weights would be great. This product is perfect as you will be making sure that muscle tissue isn’t sacrificed during your diet.

Q I am overweight by 4stones and I want to lose weight the correct way without having any excess skin, also would like to tone up my muscles [I dont want to be bulky] and aim for a healthier physique. Would this product help me reach my goals? How often/scoops should I take? Thanks
A

Losing weight is all about calorie control. If you eat less calories in a day than you are consuming then you will lose weight. This product is great to help fill the gaps and stop hunger cravings as well as preserve lean muscle tissue. Combine this product with a high calorie fat burner like Grenade, lipo 6 black or animal cuts and you’re on the right track.

Q I currently work out 4 times a week for about an hour and a half each time, I weigh 68kg and I am 5ft10. I am trying to bulk up / gain muscle mass would you recommend this product for me ? If not what should I use to help in gaining muscle mass?
A

Yes you can use this but would also recommend using Optimum Serious Mass if you goal is to build muscle mass.

Q I have recently joined the gym and want to bulk up, although im quite largely built i carry quite alot of excess weight. so on joining the gym i have begun dieting i have been told this protein is good but just wanted to know if this will bulk me up aswell as help my diet lose my weight?
A

Many people e-mail us and want to gain muscle without gaining fat. This is possible when you just start out training or when you come back from time off the gym and possibly if you have fantastic genetics. BUT outside of the above scenarios, it is difficult to gain muscle without gaining some fat! so you have to decide whether you want to burn fat or gain muscle and then eat and supplement accordingly. Gold Standard whey is a high quality protein and is ideal for dieting and muscle maintenance.

Q I was just wondering if BCAA and Glutamine amounts here are recommended daily norms or do I need to combine it with other products?
A

Whey is naturally very high in BCAAs and contains a good amount of glutamine and glutamic acid (its precursor). If you take 2 servings a day this will be a fairly good dose of BCAA & Glutamine. However, depending upon your goals, training intensity/duration, etc, you may want to add more of these as some bodybuilders and sportsmen do.

Q I weigh 5kgs and workout for about 1 hour and a half five times a week. How many times a day should i have this supplement?
A

We are going to assume your mean you way more than 5KG. Protein supplements can be taken as many times a day as needed but we recommend you have solid forms of protein throughout the day and consume up to 3 servings of a protein supplement.

Q I've been taking Nutrisport Protein+Carbs post-workout, with Nutrisport energy boost 4:1 pre workout, but I'm looking for a whey protein for during the day. I also take creatine, should I take creatine with this product or at different times?
A

The Protein + Carbs has a minimum dose of creatine but you're better off having an extra serving every other day taken seperately from the Protien + Carbs - perhaps before your biggest meal of the day.

Q im boy and 60kg and i wanna gain muscles without any fat in belly or arms! if i use this product also with creatine and use natural carbs like potato and else...will i see results? i saw mass gainers have Cholesterols and bring fat which is not suitable!! what do you suggest?
A

A supplement based purely on protein will not cause you to gain weight; instead, I would suggest you try a weight gainer, such as Mutant Mass 2.2kg, £23.99. A weight gainer serves to provide a concentrated source of calories derived from carbohydrates, protein and some fats; they usually serve two purposes: to aid in building lean muscle tissue, or to help individuals gain weight who struggle to do this by diet alone. If your calorie intake is surplus to your body's energy requirements and you do not have a regular exercise routine set in place, then you will gain weight - in the form of body fat (mostly due to the high carbohydrate content of weight gainers). This is advantageous if you are perhaps considered underweight, and are wishing to increase your level of body fat. However, you will not gain lean muscle mass by taking this product alone; in order to do this, a combination of weight training with the correct intake of carbohydrates, proteins and fats is necessary. Used in this way, a supplement such as the above will help to prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue following exercise, aid recovery/repair, and encourage the storage of macronutrients essential for building muscle. Please do not believe everything you read in magazines etc. regarding cholesterol - not all cholesterol is bad; in fact, some forms of cholesterol are ESSENTIAL for good health. The same can be said for dietary fats. Results will be based on a combination of sensible eating habits and the correct training regime, with supplements used to support this basic mechanism. Please be advised that under most circumstances, I would not advocate that any persons under the age of eighteen take dietary supplements. I hope the above information assists with your query.

Q is all 'Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey 912g' falavours suitable for vegitarians ?
A

Besides possibly the berry flavours, yes.

Q Is it recommended to have this once or twice a day?
A

You can take 4-5 servings a day if you wish but you should not be needing to as you should be getting a large amount of your protein from food sources.

Q Is the chocolate flavour on this site actually known as 'Double Rich Chocolate'? Its just on the offical ON site, it is known as double rich chocolate and thats what it says on the packaging
A

There are two. Chocolate which is double chocolate. Milk chocolate which is Extreme milk chocolate.

Q Is there any animal derived ingredients with the exception of fish
A

The only animal ingredients in this product are from milk protein (whey).

Q Is this product Gluten Free and wheat free?
A

Yes this product is gluten and wheat free

Q Is this product meant for post workout? Also I noticed that it's a suppliment, would that mean that I'd have to substitute lets say lunch or dinner for this instead, or does it work like a recovery shake? Also my workout consists of weight training 3 times a week for 45mins working on separate parts of the body each day, and then a fourth day or fat-burning/cardio. Is this product for me and is this the correct way to gain lean muscle?
A

This product is suitable for anytime of the day or night pre/post workout and perfect for any lean mass diet.

Q Is this suitable for vegetarians?
A

Yes, as long as you are ok to have dairy products.

Q Please is it possible to stock the "Natural" version of this product? It is readily available in the USA and very popular over there. There is a lot of demand for protein supplements that do not contain artificial sweeteners. Are you likely to be stocking the Natural version of this product ("Natural 100% Whey Gold Standard")? Thank you for answering my query.
A

Unfortunatkey no we will not be stocking this flavour but we do stock Phd natural whey. http://www.thesupplementstore.co.uk/brands/phd_nutrition/phdeco-phd_nutrition_pharma_whey_908g.htm

Q This 4.5kg seems to have limited flavours will you be getting this in other flavours like the 2.2kg tub???
A

The bigger sizes are limited as only the most popular flavours get the demand in the bigger bags.

Q Hi guys. I am vegetarian, but I eat eggs and milk. Can I take this kind of protein? Thank you.
A

Hello Ivan, yes, whey protein is derived from milk, so as long as you allow yourself dairy products, it will fit into your diet perfectly.
