Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey is one of the most popular whey protein products on the market today. This product is ideal for people who are looking to get some extra protein in their diet, to gain muscle or to help them recover more quickly from workouts.
A serving of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey includes 24g of Whey Protein as well as Amino acids to help with muscle growth and recovery.
This product is available in a range of flavours, includingBanana Cream, Cookies and Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Mint, Double Rich Chocolate, Delicious Strawberry, Extreme Milk Chocolate, Rocky Road, French Vanilla Creme and Tropical Punch.
There are several sizes available, from small tubs that are useful for people who simply want to sample different flavours to 4.5KG bags of some of the most popular flavours. The price per KG drops dramatically as you move up in package size, so it is well worth buying the bigger bags if you are confident that you like a specific flavour.
While the precise nutritional details differ per serving depending on the flavour that you opt for, in general it is safe to say that a serving, mixed with water, contains about 120kcal, and 24g of protein. The shakes tend to be low in carbohydrates and contain a modest amount of sodium. Of course, if someone were to mix the shake with milk then the serving would be more calorie dense and would also contain milk sugars, although they would also benefit from the fats and the proteins in the milk.
