Whey Protein Isolates

From the worlds most trusted sports nutrition brand comes Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard Protein. Optimum Gold Standard Whey is formulated with Optimum's excludisve, proprietary blend of microfiltered whey protein isolates, ion-exchange whey protein isolates, ultrafiltered whey protein concentrate, and HydroWhey hydrolyzed whey peptides.

What does that mean? Optimum Gold Standard Whey Protein provides a higher percentage of pure protein with lower fat, lower lactose, lower carbohydrates, and lower sugar than standard whey protein blends. 

The Gold Standard Difference

Gold Standard Whey provides 24g protein per scoop (30-33g Scoop). That makes the protein content nearly 79% by weight! Each serve has no more than 2g fat, 4g carbohydrate, and 2g sugar. The lower lactose levels due to the high content of whey protein isolates and the added digestive makes Optimum Gold Standard Whey perfect for individuals with lactose intolerances.

Taste and Mixability

But it doesn't matter how much protein is in your shake or how good the macronutrient profile is if it doesn't mix well or it doesn't taste great. Fortunately Optimum Nutrition have some of the best flavour profiles around and all products are made in their own state-of-the-art GMP Compliant (Good Manufacturing Practices) manufacturing facilities. Using Optimum's first-to-market instantization process Optimum ensures its Gold Standard Whey mixes effortlessly with just a stir of a spoon or a couple of shakes in a shaker. 

Directions: Mix one scoop of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey with 6-8oz of water, milk, or your favourite beverage. Optimum Gold Standard Whey can be mixed in a glass, shaker, or blender. Vary the amount of liquid used to achieve the desired taste and/or consistency. For a stronger flavour and a slightly thicker shake, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of liquid. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.


Please Note:
The amount of serves in each container may vary between flavours.

Literally THE Gold StandardReview by R. Ware
Best of the best. You pay for what you get.

Tastes great
Mixes super easily
Best results in the gym I’ve ever had using this morning, pre and post workout.. *
OutstandingReview by Shane
Best protein I have used. Outstanding taste, easy mix and easy on stomach. I have achieved great results on this protein.*
Top of its ClassReview by Paul
Gold Standard, its all in the name really! The taste and flavour range is incredible (I couldn't recommend a flavour, they are all good). Goes down so easy with a smooth texture, does not over thicken your water/milk. Easily worth the couple extra dollars. My new go too!*
Best everReview by Stevo
This is definitely the best protein I've ever had. It's all about the chocolate mint flavour trust me. Great taste and good balance of protein and BCAA's. *
4 StarsReview by Greg
Great product. Have seen great results, and taste of banana & strawberry is good. Only reason not giving 5 stars as recently tried the choc mint flavour which isnt too flash*
FantasticReview by Yi-Chern
Great product. Mixes well in both milk and water.
Great taste and a good price. No issues with bloating unlike other products. There's a reason why they are the best and set the gold standard!*
QualityReview by Mike
Very clean and quality protein, good BCAA count. Favourite flavour is French Vanilla creme. *
Pick of the bunchReview by Moose
Mixes well, tastes great and top quality protein. Can't go wrong. Well worth the extra dollars*
Mixes well and does not foamReview by John
Great tasting protein, that mixes well with Milk.*
One of the bestReview by Sam
One of the best powders around. Mixes well, is cheap and tastes really great (when mixed with milk), it gives a watery taste when only mixed with water but that is fine. Also doesn't feel weird in your stomach like some other proteins do. *
One of the best aroundReview by Jason
Ive tried alot of protein powders and nothing is as good as this one- beats it on price - beats it on taste - mixes well and absorbs well one of the best around awesome!!*
Easy to mix-up and doesn't go all gluggy and lumpyReview by Angela
Easy to mix-up and doesn't go all gluggy and lumpy. The cookies & cream flavour is really sweet - I didn't like it at all. I prefer the Chocolate, or vanilla is a nice base to add fruit into. This didn't set like a brick in my stomach or block me up : )*
This is the best protein out there!Review by Simon
This is the best protein out there! If you can afford the small extra cost definitely go for this one, it is well worth it.*
Fantastic product, my favorite protein shakeReview by Marcus
Fantastic product, my favorite protein shake. Mixes well, tastes great (chocolate milkshake is my flavor of choice) and good value. Doesn't effect my sensitive stomach like other products do. 5/5*
It is extremely easy to mix and the taste is also great.Review by Kevin
I have been using Optimum Nutrition Whey Gold Standard for about four weeks. It is extremely easy to mix and the taste is also great.I've put on close to 2kg of muscle and I believe this product has a huge impact on that effect. I definitely will purchase this again when it runs out.*
A very good source of quality proteinReview by Brandon
I have used this product once and found it to be a very good source of quality protein. It mixes very easily and tastes great. Help me build muscle mass and gain 4kgs.*
Have so far been impressed with the results.Review by Brandon
This stuff is great, I have tried strawberry and Banana flavours and have so far been impressed with the results. Aside from taking this after workouts my diet has not changed yet I have noticed a decent increase of muscle growth in a short period of time. The protein mixes very easily even with just a spoon or shaker and doesn't leave lumps, it also tastes great with water as opposed to adding milk; best of all you can incorporate it ito other meals like breakfast cereals or smoothies. Two thumbs up :-)*
It is very easy to mix, no lumps. It's easy on my stomach and it is a good value for the money. Review by Tom
I'm just finishing up my second 5lb tub of Gold Standard Whey Protein Powder and I am quite happy with it. It is very easy to mix, no lumps. It's easy on my stomach and it is a good value for the money. The only con is it tastes a bit artificial to me, so I prefer the 100% NATURAL Whey from the same brand.*
Easy to mix, great flavours, I would recommend to anyone!Review by Dale
Although this is a bit more expensive than other proteins it is 100% worth the extra. Easy to mix, great flavours, I would recommend to anyone!*
A easy mixing, in-expensive way to get your protein requirementsReview by Chris
Gold Standard Whey is a easy mixing, in-expensive way to get your protein requirements. Nice tasting too!*
