Gold Standard Whey By Optimum Nutrition - Protein

What is Gold Standard Whey?

Gold Standard Whey is a ultra-filtered whey protein that contains both WPI’s and WPC’s to make it better then all its competitors.

It is used best for muscle support and recovery after an intense workout session.† More than 5 Grams of the Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, lsoleucine, and Valine. It also contains over 4 Grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving.


  • Protein Blend (Whey Protein Isolates, Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Peptides)

What can I expect from Gold Standard Whey?

Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use but rate among the best proteins that money can buy.

That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient, along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), we’re able to pack 24 grams of muscle-building protein into every serving.

ON’s attention to detail also extends to mixability. This superior-quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There’s no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.

Review By Thomas

Always a fan of the Gold Standard products. Low carb and good amount of protein for a single serving. Tastes good. I find myself wanting to mix up a glass, even when not needed, just to break the monotony of plain water.


Is it better to take this before, after or during a workout?

  • You can take this whenever. This is Isolate Protein meaning it's already broken down and it'll make its way into your muscle quickly. You can have it as a meal even on non-workout days with a piece of fruit like a banana.

Can this be taken by women?

  • Yes, provided you do not have any allergies or intolerance to dairy. Whey is just a type of milk protein.

What flavors are currently available for this product?

  • We currently have the following flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cake Donut, Mocha Cappuccino, Chocolate Mint, Strawberry Banana, Banana Cream, Extreme Milk Chocolate, Key Lime Pie, Strawberry, Cookies & Cream, Rocky Road, French Vanilla, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Malt, Birthday Cake, and Double Rich Chocolate.

How do I take Optimum Gold Standard Whey?

Dosage and Directions:

  • Blender: Add one scoop of On Gold Standard Whey to a blender filled with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Add 1-2 ice cubes then blend for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Shaker: (Easier: quick and convenient) Fill a shaker bottle with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Add one scoop of On Gold Standard Whey. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Enjoy. 
  • Glass and Spoon: (Easiest: fast and simple) Simply add one scoop of ON Gold Standard Whey to a tall glass. Add 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Mix with a spoon for about 20 seconds or until powder is well disbursed. Store in a cool, dry place.
  • Think Outside The Glass: Gold Standard Whey can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop of Gold Standard Whey 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.
  • Suggested Use: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For the best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
  • Shake Up Your Shake: By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding Fresh or Frozen fruits ( strawberries, bananas, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, unflavored yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients.
