Description for Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard Variety Pack
Optimum Nutrition's 100% Whey Gold Standard Protein won the Supplement Of The Year and Protein Powder Of The Year award for 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. Optimum Nutrition is raising the bar again with the 3rd generation of ON 100% Whey Protein - ON 100% Whey Gold Standard 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.

UPDATE 11 March 2016
I keep an eye on my reviews but lately, I have seen this happening often . I get a few votes up for a review and then quite strangely a down vote the same day, that really has left me wondering if some people are deliberately down voting reviews.
I don't understand how Amazon moderators are letting this off.
I am compelled to write this review after seeing quite a few negative reviews calling it a fake or counterfeit which I find it quite misleading once again. I bought the 1lb pack to check the concerns raised that the packaging is mislabeled with a 23gram protein scoop. To all the concerned people, there is in fact 1lb Gold Standard refill pack with 24g protein per scoop. (Photos attached)
Optimum Nutrition (ON) 100% Whey Gold Standard - 2 lbs (Double Rich Chocolate) is one of the best Whey proteins in the market today. Three things I liked about this product, the manufacturing is entirely done in the USA following strict US regulations, the grams of protein in each scoop and the taste.
If you’re new to Protein Supplements, this is a quick overview of few major protein types that are sold in the market today.
Most protein supplements that are in the market offer blends of different types of whey proteins. To make it easy, let me break it down for you. There are three types of fast digestive proteins, the cheapest is the Whey Concentrate typically a mass gainer with lots of carbs , then comes the more expensive Whey Isolate and then the most expensive Whey Hydro Isolate .
Concentrate typically takes about 2-3 hours to digest, Isolates can be digested in your system within 2 hours, Hydro Isolates is purest form whey and can be taken even if you’re lactose intolerant - Hydro isolates can be digested within an hour and work best as Post Workout drinks. Basically, the price of your protein directly depends on the % of Whey Isolate or Whey Hydro Isolate present. There is also a slow digestive protein called Casein which is cheaper or almost the same as Whey Concentrate, treat this as a bedtime supplement as it takes about 6 hours to digest.
What is OPTIMUM NUTRITION- 100% Whey Gold Standard ?
ON 100% Whey Gold Standard is a multi-whey blend comprising isolates & concentrates as its main ingredients. It contains 24 grams of protein per serving, with a bit of fat, cholesterol, and lactose. Bear in mind, if you’re lactose intolerant, this is not for you unfortunately.
Taste, Texture and Mixability
It is not very sweet and mixes well with water and milk. I didn’t feel bloated and Double Chocolate flavour I’ve tried was good, and I will give
8.5/10 for the taste
9.5/10 for mixability
Total score 9/10
When will I start seeing results?
This is the bitter truth, Protein supplements would help you <20% to reach your fitness goals. Your everyday workout helps you about another 30% and the rest is your daily diet as to how you maintain yourself eating healthy. You’re not going to get fitter staying home and just having 3 protein smoothies a day.
From somewhere I had once read, you don’t buy protein protein supplements till you are regular at the gym working out and eating healthy for at least 90 days. Once those two habits are accomplished, buy protein supplements, and you will see results.
Are protein supplements necessary?
This question is debatable but it all comes down to how much protein is in your everyday diet. If you’ve enough protein in your diet, no need obviously. From a personal perspective, I would avoid processed food like protein supplements any day, if I can consume enough protein through my diet (egg, milk, meat etc)
Health Benefits/ Issues
It is always advisable to take protein in their natural form (Milk, Egg, Meat, etc), but with a vegetarian diet that could be challenging. Rule of thumb with supplements is DO NOT go overboard - DO NOT take more than 2 scoops in 24 hours, but personally, if you’re not aiming for the Olympics, I suggest to start with 1 scoop a day so that you go easy on your body. In addition, you MUST drink a lot of water when taking protein supplements. From a lecture of Dr Tara Swart of MIT Sloan, your body requires 500ml of water for every 30lb (13.6 Kg) of your weight in a day to function normally.
Smoothie recipe = 1 scoop (Chocolate) + 1 Avacado + Banana + 200ml Almond Milk + Ice Cubes in a Blender .
PLEASE NOTE: Insufficient water intake can give you Stomach pain/ Abdominal Pain with protein supplements. NOT to be considered professional/medical advice. This review is based on personal experience. Protein supplements are to be considered with caution.
Just to clarify and to be honest, this is the first time I'm using a Whey protein, not just the brand but Whey protein itself. Though, I was very skeptical about the purchase after reading so many reviews about the product being fake, I still decided to order it.
ABOUT THE JAR/TUB (AUTHENTICITY CHECK from the outside): There was a strong chocolate smell on the outside of the jar already. I checked the bottom of the jar and the tub looked normal. Mfd and Exp date had exactly 2 years gap. I did not find any tampering marks whatsoever.
There was the "ON Authentic seal" on the neck band. I checked everything thoroughly before opening it. The QR code on the jar itself led me to product page of Optimum Nutrition website.
The QR code on the importer sticker led me to Bright Commodities authenticity checking page. I scratched the Importer sticker for the hidden code and entered all the details and it said that the product is authentic.
After opening the jar, I did find the seal attached on the lid.
The jar was kind of half filled, not up to the brim. (Doubt 1)
I also found the golden scoop with the branding on it and Made in USA written inside the scoop along with some other details.
SMELL, CONSISTENCY AND TEXTURE OF THE POWDER: The power smelled nice and the texture was normal I think (First time user), not clumpy or anything.
No stickiness at all, the powder did not stick to the inside of the jar. (Authenticity checking method found somewhere online)
One thing that I noticed was that, the powder had some white particles in it. (Doubt 2)
Now, to clear out my doubts I called 011-49594959 which was Glanbia Performance Nutrition. I followed the instructions given by the IVR and asked about my doubts. The customer executive was helpful enough and told that "The product is 100% authentic. The jar is supposed to be filled half way and the white particles are 'Amino Acids'."
I was satisfied with all the authenticity checking and all.
TASTE: Though it smelled really chocolaty, the taste was just okay. According to me, it had a medicinal taste to it.
Consistency was okay, not thick at all, it might just be the amount of water I added. (1 full scoop in one glass of water)
MIXABILITY: It mixed with the water fairly easily. Found 1 tiny lump, and by "tiny" I really mean tiny, most of the people won't even notice it probably. I noticed it because I was trying to find lumps intentionally. Now, keep in mind that I did not use a shaker, it was simply stirred with a spoon in a glass. I did not even stir vigorously. So, mixability is good I think.
RATING: Now, talking about the rating, I gave it a 4* just because the taste was okay.
Points to verify if your product is original or not -
1. Seal - it should be of black color not transparent and it will have ON authentic gold label printed directly on the black plastic seal.
2. Taste and smell - Both should be exactly be the flavor you ordered.
3. Importer sticker on the side, Official importers list in present on ON site. Bright Commodities and NEUVERA Wellness Ventures Pvt. Ltd.
4. Batch code, mfg and expiry dates on the bottom with light blue ink.
