  • Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) Main Ingredient
  • Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolates & Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate
  • Over 4 Grams of Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving
  • More Than 5 Grams of the Naturally Occurring Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine in Each Serving
  • The “Gold Standard” for Protein Quality



Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) 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 protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. 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.

    We have been using this brand for years, the chocolate in particular. Just tried out the cookies and cream and lordt it is vile. Of course I bought the 5lb jar so I have been having to just cringe and choke it down but will definitely be buying the chocolate again

    This and the double chocolate are my favorite, though if you don’t like regular mocha you should definitely try the double chocolate

    This is my favorite protein powder to buy. I’m a college student on a tight budget, and I find this to be the best protein powder for your buck. I’ve tried other powders, such as AllStar, and Fortress, and this tastes leagues above them, with better ingredients.

    I always go back to ON protein. it always tastes great and mixes so well. I get lured in by other flavors and marketing but i ALWAYS go back to ON because it’s just better. Cake Donut is my favorite because it’s not overpowering. ON doesn’t make the ridiculous flavors other brands do to grab your attention.

    I use this whey protein on a daily basis. First off, I think that this is one of the best deals on whey that you can get anywhere, as in price per serving. Second, there are very little carbs and the very slightly sweet taste is from sucralose, which is the same sweetener as Splenda. This cannot be digested by your body, so it is therefor zero extra calories. You get 24 grams of protein per scoop without any extra sugar. I feel that by using this product right after my workout, I recover from my workouts a bit faster from the immediate protein and I can get back to the gym quicker, leading to quicker results.

    it blends better if you let it sit in the drink for a while before drinking. i got the unflavored and it doesn’t change the flavor of beverages i add it into. I like this “protein” powder so far.

    I have always been a big fan of Optimum protein and I have continued to get the mocha flavor good for all times of the day. I will continue to re-order.

    I mix with water and some crushed ice in with blender bottle only for 30 sec. Comes out like a slightly frothy iced mocha….love it! Never clumpy, no mix problems….only issue is wife has broken into it because of the flavor 🙂

    Birthday cake, best flavor of protein powder I’ve ever had. Sprinkles add a smoothie vibe and it makes it enjoyable

    Gold Standard from ON is always reliably trustworthy. Bought Cookies N Cream on a whim because I wanted to try a new flavor and it was amazing. Tastes exactly like Oreos and mixes well with other flavors or milk or just water. Flavor did get very old about halfway through the tub so I began mixing it with vanilla whey in my shakes.

    I enjoy this stuff quite a bit. This is my “Go to” flavor and have tried a few others. I’m looking to try some newer ones in the future to change it up a bit. This stuff mixes so well even with water and still tastes good. Tastes like a milk shake when you use some whole milk too! I used to mix it with Almond or Coconut milk as well but the taste changed very little and the consistency was about the same as water mix.

    This stuff is great. Seeing good gains as always with ON, recovering quicker than I would without a powder. Plus the taste of this birthday cake flavor is GREAT. This is the best flavor I’ve ever had with a protein shake. I hope the flavor is made more so I can buy it again.

    I love ON Gold Standard protein. The Double Chocolate has been my go-to for years because it doesn’t have the overly sweet artificial flavor of other brands I have tried. I decided to try the birthday cake for a change and really like it. It is definitely better and has a more cake-like flavor than the just plain vanilla. I also really like the sprinkles. They are ground pretty fine so I do not find them cumbersome to drink. I recommend! It’s great with unsweetened almond milk.

    The mocha flavor is THE BEST EVER!!! I never get tired of it; so many powders have an awful taste to them but this brand in the mocha flavor does not. Very pleased completely worth the money to use a protein powder thats good quality with a flavor I actually enjoy drinking. Love it!

    used for morning protein shakes in place of breakfast. curbed appetite, combined with almond milk, greek yogurt, frozen berries, or peanut butter powder. tasted lightly of milk, but that’s what it is really, so that’s to be expected.

    I hate most whey flavors and even the standard chocolate, while not bad, is not particularly enjoyable. This rocky road stuff though is dangerously delicious. It’s so good that it’s very tempting to over-eat it. I went from forcing myself to drink whey to forcing myself not to.

    Mixes good. I got the rocky road. Tastes good doesn’t make you feel bloated as much as some of the other whey powders. Scoops aren’t massive either.

    I always hated drinking protein shakes but the rocky road really tastes good. I had it with almond milk and it literally tastes like a milkshake. Mix ice and it really does taste like a milkshake!
