Supplementation, in general, can be key in your diet to get the required nutrients to operate efficiently and achieve your body composition goals. Protein supplementation is no exception here and may even be the most popular type of supplementation on the market. And when it comes to protein supplementation, Gold Standard 100% Whey by Optimum Nutrition happens to be one of the best. This protein offers a variety of flavors, great mix-ability, and a favorable macro breakdown.
Perhaps the best thing Gold Standard 100% Whey has to offer is its favorable macronutrient breakdown. Each scoop has 120 calories, 24 grams of protein, 3 grams of carbs, and 1 gram of fat. That’s almost exactly what you want in a protein in that it has minimal carbs and fat with a solid amount of protein. Given this protein’s macro breakdown it’s likely best suited for those looking to lose weight. That said, it could aid those looking to gain weight as well if mixed with some higher calorie fillers.
Gold Standard 100% Whey offers a variety of flavors on Amazon including Double Rich Chocolate, Vanilla Ice Cream, Coffee, Mocha Cappuccino, Delicious Strawberry, Banana, Cake Batter, Cookies and Cream, Rocky Road, Strawberry and Cream, Strawberry Banana. Which you should choose is entirely up to you but our recommendation is to buy smaller size tubs at first to find which is your favorite and then begin buying in bulk.
Gold Standard 100% Whey mixes extremely well. As long as you have 6-8 ounces of liquid per scoop you should never be left with any chunky residue.
This protein also mixes really well with a variety of other foods such as yogurt and fruit.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard comes in 1, 2, 5, and 10-pound tubs.
For the money, Gold Standard 100% Whey is one of the best protein supplements on the market. The versatility the macro-profile offers in combination with the flavor selection and mix-ability make this a “no brainer” buy for anyone struggling to get their protein in. Next time you’re in Hybrid or shopping through our Amazon link be sure to scoop up a tub!
