THE TRUE STRENGTH OF WHEY
Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) 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 muscle-building protein into every serving. 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.

 

Beyond The Basics

> 77% Protein by Weight (24 g of Protein per 31 g Serving Size).

> Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) Main Ingredient.

> Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolate and Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.

> Over 4 Grams of Naturally Occurring 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.


Directions

Spoon Stirred: Gold Standard 100% Whey is instantized, That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, just add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.

Tip: Adjust the taste of your Gold Standard 100% Whey by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

Shaker Cup: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

Blender: Add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Shake Up Your Shake: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butte, flaxseed oil, coconut, and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake.Stack Your Shake: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey an even better post workout product by adding supplements like Creatine, Glutamine, BCAA and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

Think Outside the Glass: Gold Standard 100% Whey can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

 

Suggested Use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part o a balanced diet and exercise program.

What are the Benefits of Supplementing with Whey Protein?

For years, the debate has raged: Does taking a whey protein supplement help you build bigger and stronger muscles?

A new study out of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, contends that the answer is a clear “yes.”

Researchers analyzed dozens of studies examining the role of dietary protein supplements. They concluded that consuming up to 1.6 grams of dietary protein per kilogram of bodyweight per day can help build muscle size and strength. (A kilogram is equivalent to 2.2 pounds.)   

Adding whey protein to your diet often makes sense, even if you don’t care about bigger muscles, says Molly Kimble, a registered dietitian with Ochsner Fitness Center in New Orleans.

“I’m a fan, and happy for people to add protein of any type to their diet,” she says.

Who needs more protein?

Kimble generally recommends a daily intake of 1 gram of protein per pound of your goal body weight, or your healthy body weight.

However, she said many people – particularly women – do not get enough protein.

“They might end up not getting quite enough protein in their diet to support the level of exercise that they’re doing,” she says.

Protein also is important for competitive athletes, or anyone who simply exercises a lot. Not only does it help build muscle and strength, but it also aids muscle recovery so you don’t feel rundown after a workout.

“Especially post-workout, when our muscle cells are like little sponges looking to soak up and recover as fast as possible -- I like using whey protein at that point,” she says.

Why whey protein can help

Kimble says there is “nothing particularly miraculous” about protein powder. However, the convenience of using such powders makes it much easier for busy people to get their daily allotment of protein.

“You may not have a chicken breast at 3 o’clock, but you can throw a scoop of protein powder into a shaker cup and be done with it,” she says.

Whey protein powder is a particularly good source of the macronutrient, thanks to the powder’s convenience, portability and other qualities, Kimble says.

“It’s one of the better-absorbed types of protein,” she says. “Whey protein is very neutral and tends to dissolve and mix well.”

Kimble notes that 3 ounces of beef gives you only about 20 grams of protein. Thus, a protein powder can complement dietary sources.

Getting more protein into your diet

Kimble says protein powder is safe, and that you would “have to really try to overdo it” before taking such a supplement would potentially harm your kidneys or other organs.

Still, she says it is important not to make protein powder – or any supplement – the cornerstone of your diet. Supplements should be “exactly what their name is – a supplement to a real whole-food-based diet,” she says.

When choosing a brand of whey protein, try to avoid artificial sweeteners as much as possible.

“A lot of them are sweetened naturally with stevia or other types of natural plant-based sweeteners,” she says. “Or, they’re just unsweetened.”

Also, avoid whey protein that is high in sugar. “It’s rare to find a whey protein that’s also high in sugar, but double-check the label to see,” she says.

Whey protein can be purchased in two primary forms: Whey concentrate and whey isolate.

Whey isolate tends to be better quality, but is a bit more expensive, Kimble says. She adds that whey concentrate is “still going to be a really good product,” and that either form is good for most people.

Choose a whey protein that tastes good to you. Otherwise, you won’t use it, Kimble says.

Kimble also urges you to be creative with how you use protein, and to go beyond a simple protein shake. She often urges clients to dissolve a little bit of whey protein in almond milk before adding it to other foods.  

“The key is to dissolve that scoop of protein first,” she says. “If you just sprinkle it over, it will get kind of clumped up.”

She suggests stirring the combination of almond milk and dissolved whey protein into your oatmeal. Or, pour it over your cereal.

“I also like it in my coffee,” she says.

You can also use whey protein in place of some flour when baking. Kimble says a scoop of protein powder can add structure and texture to almond flour or coconut flour in gluten-free baking.

“It makes it easier to reach those protein goals,” she says. “A lot of us aren’t reaching those protein goals.”
