OPTIMUM NUTRITION 100% WHEY PROTEIN GOLD STANDARD REVIEW
Note: This is NOT a sponsored post.
I have to admit that I’m an avid user of protein powder products. Since I am always on the run or stuck in the office I find them extremely helpful. I have to say I’ve tried many brands of proteins and I want to review the one I am currently using, the OPTIMUM NUTRITION 100% WHEY PROTEIN GOLD STANDARD.
MIXABILITY // CONSISTENCY // TEXTURE
I always use a shaker to mix my shakes. I found this protein mixes extremely well with water and milk, no residue whatsoever. In fact, since I drink the protein as a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack, I like it when they get a little bit thicker. I even tried using a more powder/less water ratio than the instructions but the result was a very juicy, smooth finish.
I believe this is one of the biggest turning points when choosing a whey protein shake since they all have very similar nutrition facts. I have to say that ON 100% WHEY PROTEIN GOLD STANDARD has a very enjoyable taste. I am currently using the Double Rich Chocolate. I usually go for the Vanilla or Strawberry flavor, but decided to give this one a try. I have to admit it is not the best tasting protein I have tried but it’s not bad.
NUTRITION FACTS AND EFFECTIVENESS
I cannot measure the effectiveness of the protein from a muscle building perspective, since this is basically a dieting compliment. It will not give you gains in muscle or make you look more muscular. It will definitely help you meet your daily protein intake and will definitely help you with your snacks and make your life a lot easier.
It is packed with 24 grams of protein per scoop, an excellent amount per serving in my opinion. Only 3 grams of carbs (1g from sugar) and 1 gram of fat. All this totaling 120 calories per serving for those of you who like to keep count. It also has 5.5 grams of BCAA and 4 grams of glutamine.
It sells around 29.99 for the 2 pound presentation and 57.99 for the 5lbs presentation (74 servings). I find it to be a very competitive pricing since ON is a well established and respected brand in the supplements market
The ON 100% WHEY PROTEIN GOLD STANDARD is an excellent compliment for any diet plan. I would totally recommend it based on the quality product you get for the pricing.
They have over 20 flavors to choose from. It is made with whey isolates which contains the highest percentage of pure protein and if you decide to do some more research on it, will find that it has won numerous awards.
