Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein

Optimum Nutritions Gold Standard Whey Protein is the worlds best selling protein powder and has won numerous awards for its excellence, so I wanted to see why!


From just looking at the nutritional information, I could see it uses Whey Protein Isolates, or WPI. This basically is the highest quality whey ingredient. Measuring a huge 90+% on the pure protein scale. I also noticed the extremely low sugar content, 3g, which is the biggest bug bearer of mine if I was to be honest.

Having used this supplement over the past month, I can safely say this is one of the best protein powders I have used.  It ticked every box for me:


Fine Texture

Easy to Mix

Easy to digest

12 different flavours (so you’ll never get bored)

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein is fast absorbing. This means that apart from your night time shake, this protein can be consumed anywhere at any time. Optimally, after training when your muscles are screaming out for it, but on waking too.

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein is perfect for any hypertrophy training.
