    • Many people love the chocolate flavors and some don’t. Other’s hate the birthday cake flavor and others like it! Therefore, it is a matter of personal taste and this is why you shouldn’t buy a whole tub of a flavor recommended by someone else since you could like another flavor better. So, test it out for yourself!
    • Whey protein naturally tastes really bad so it’s pretty obvious why Optimum Nutrition had to flavor it and the variety of flavors is a bonus! Many people who have used this product have also said that it is very effective and is definitely one of the bests out there.
    • Since I use this whey protein powder too, I can say with confidence that this protein powder mixes really well even with a spoon and makes good protein shakes since it is instantized.
    • Also, this product is a supplement so it should be taken as either as a meal replacement by people who tend to lose weight and even to get some calories into your diet if you don’t have enough already!
    • This is truly one of the best whey protein powders out there and it is definitely worth a try!

    • Here’s a picture of the nutrition facts and ingredients of the Gold Standard Whey Protein by Optimum Nutrition I bought from the store the other day :-Ingredients Label
    • I bought the Double Rich Chocolate flavor and I must say, it did taste great paired with some juice or almond milk along with ice cubes. There are many other recipes you can try while using this protein powder and maybe make your own too!

  1. Great page and post.

    Packed full of info really good not only for experts but beginners too.

    I like how much work you have put into writing this. Do body build yourself ?

    I normally use diet whey do you think they can compare to each other in terms of my diet and keeping sugar on a low.

    1. Thank you, Coll. 😀
      Yes, I go to the gym 6 days a week.
      If you want to build muscle, there is no doubt that whey protein is a better choice and I haven’t heard much about diet whey so it would be better if you ask someone who does know!
      Other than that, thanks for dropping by and it was great hearing from you.

  2. This is a great review Syed. I am not a gym rat. But, I do try and stay up to date on the best products for good health. I have read a lot about the whey protein product but I have never purchased it. How soon were you able to tell a difference in terms of the fat burning element once you started taking it, or do you recall?

    1. Thank you so much, Greer.
      When I started taking whey protein, it did help me to feel fuller and I could cut down on cravings with ease.

      It helped in gaining more muscle when compared to the normal protein powder I used and the effects are seen differently for many people so it really depends.


  3. You hear of many different forms and brands of protein powders, and I find it can get very confusing to which would be the better choice.

    The fact that this brand is one of the more popular and well-known brands has a significant plus. The fact that they have so many different flavors shows they must be selling a lot to carry such an extensive selection. I also like the fact that they have reduced the lactose from the product for lactose intolerant people.

    Like you said, this product is well worth a try and that’s what I’ll do.

    1. Hello, Travis!

      The Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein by Optimum Nutrition is definitely worth a try not only because it’s a best seller but also because it does work and has the best quality than any other whey product I’ve tried so far.
      I am lactose intolerant so this was a major part I had to look into and it was great hearing from you.


  4. Hi Syed, this is really a great Review of Optimum Nutrition’s Whey Protein. What a product also, I have been supplementing with this product for about 2 months now and I can tell you that no other Whey even comes close to the quality protein in this powder. I also love the taste and the fact that it mixes instantly.

    1. Hello, Joe.
      Thank you so much for reading the review and we’re glad you liked it.

      The quality this product has is truly the best and it’s awesome to hear from you because we agree a 100%

  5. Great review. I personally don’t take protein powder so I don’t know how effective they are but as I am in the fitness industry myself, I have had many people tell me they prefer pea protein powder to whey as it’s allergen free which is good for those who can’t digest whey. Having said that, throughout my years of research and speaking to people and health experts, there isn’t really much difference between whey, pea protein and soy protein and it all comes down to personal preference.
    Great review though. I am tempted to buy one for myself 🙂

    1. Protein powder’s are a good source of fiber and really help to stay full while trying to lose weight.
      Other than whey, you can try also out the Orgain Organic Protein Powder which is ideal for vegans and people with allergies can feel safe while consuming it.

      The Gold Standard Whey Protein by Optimum Nutrition is one of the best products you could buy in terms of whey.

      Thanks for reading.

  6. Hey there, I enjoyed reading this review.
    Wow, I’m impressed by the number of flavors that this protein product has, but that sounds like a good thing to me, because you can’t refuse it saying you don’t like its flavor.
    So from what I read in your review, this protein has to be mixed in a shake, right?

    1. Hello, Ashley! 🙂
      We’re glad you liked it.
      Yes, there seems to be a flavor for everyone and you can mix it in a shake and there are other recipes you can try with this product.

  7. Hey there,

    I must admit that I have tried this protein and I was very satisfied with it.

    It is one of the best offers on the market when it comes to the ratio quality/price.

    To be honest I liked also the Kevin Levrone whey protein and I also liked it a lot.

    What do you think about the other types of protein powder-soy for example? Is it better than the whey protein and why.

    I think that the soy proteins are cheaper anyway so should I start buying soy proteins as well?

    1. Hello, Asen.

      The Gold Standard Whey Protein by Optimum Nutrition definitely is an amazing product which is worth trying and protein powder soy is one of the top selling protein powder types in the market today but recent studies have shown that most of the health benefits of this type of protein are false and it can lead to some health problems too so this is why I prefer whey protein over soy because it has many anti-oxidant properties that are useful.

      Whey is definitely better than soy in my opinion because it has more benefits plus helps getting rid of existing allergies too and something you should keep in mind while buying whey protein is that if it has too many artificial sweeteners, it isn’t as healthy.

      So, I would definitely recommend none other than the Gold Standard Whey Protein by Optimum Nutrition for whey protein consumption since it really does work!

      Hope you found this information useful.
