What’s new with Gold Stan­dard 100% Whey?

Not only does Gold Stan­dard 100% Whey pro­tein pow­der have a fresh new look, but it also has a great new taste!


The label looks dif­fer­ent com­pared to the pre­vi­ous one I got, is it still the same OPTIMUM NUTRITION product?

As you evolve, so do we. The part of our mis­sion is to help active indi­vid­u­als bet­ter under­stand OPTIMUM NUTRITION prod­ucts. Now choos­ing the right prod­uct for you is eas­i­er with more vis­i­ble prod­uct ben­e­fits, fea­tures and flavours on each tub.


The taste is dif­fer­ent com­pared to the one I usu­al­ly buy. Has some­thing changed with the flavour profile?

We have refreshed the taste on Dou­ble Rich Choco­late, Extreme Milk Choco­late, Vanil­la Ice Cream, French Vanil­la Creme and Deli­cious Straw­ber­ry to bring them more in line with the flavour descrip­tors. All oth­er flavours in the range remain the same.


The tub is not full to the brim when opened, why is that?

This is com­plete­ly nor­mal and is to do with the way the pow­der is vac­u­um packed into the tub. The pow­der set­tles over time. This does not impact the weight or num­ber of serv­ings list­ed on the label.


Are the ingre­di­ents test­ed and safe?

All of the ingre­di­ents in our prod­ucts have been approved and con­sid­ered safe for con­sump­tion by the Euro­pean Food Safe­ty Author­i­ty. Gold Stan­dard Whey is also reg­u­lar­ly test­ed for banned sub­stances by the world class anti-dopping lab, LGC Limited.

    Trau­ma­tized the entire gym — 5/5I ate the entire con­tain­er in one sit­ting and the room start­ed glow­ing. I went to the gym and bench­pressed 14x my body­weight, every­one was scream­ing and cry­ing and telling me to stop but I could­n’t. 5/5

  3. Mr B.

    WARNING- ITEM MISSING AUTHENTICITY MARKINGSThe item did not come with the rel­e­vant authen­tic­i­ty mark­ings- i.e. had a clear plas­tic wrap­per around the lid with­out an “ON” holo­gram, no fresh­ness seal under the lid, and no print­ed best buy date- all in con­tra­ven­tion of the authen­tic­i­ty guide­lines on the ON web­site. I will be return­ing this item for a full refund.

    Wrong fla­vor in the box?????Ordered Dou­ble rich choco­late whey pro­tein like i always do. Did receive the box for Dou­ble rich choco­late fla­vor. Opened the box and the fla­vor inside was some­thing FRUITY VANILLA MAY BE not choco­late at all. Don’t know what hap­pened there did not expect this from ON have been buy­ing there prod­ucts for years now.1. How was there a fruity fla­vor in a choco­late box?2. Was this authentic?3. Was there any Qual­i­ty Check done?4. Is EU prod­uct not at par with Amer­i­can one?I love this prod­uct as it suits me best but i am wor­ried now.Feel free to con­tact me for more details.

    Here is all you need to know to see if you got an authen­tic prod­uctHere is all you need to know to see if you got an authen­tic product:I have been read­ing and doing a bunch of research on this; here is what I’ve found. Note: I ordered from Ama­zon UK, which shows as sold and dis­patched by Amazon.1 — The UK and US tubs are different.In the UK: the neck band is black and gold. The bot­tom of the tubs have a slight inden­ta­tion. The batch code, expiry date are on the next in yellow/greenish writ­ing on the tubs, and in the front of the bag if you get a bagged one. And final­ly the vac­u­umed seal is white, and should obvi­ous­ly be attached on pret­ty well all around the tub.In the US: the neck band is gold holo­gram seal. The bot­tom of the tub has a heat mould going across the whole base. The batch codes are writ­ten in white (or blue). There is no sealed top, but there is a card­board head which usu­al­ly gets stuck to the cap when you take it off.2 — The authen­ti­ca­tion site. The con­fu­sion comes because ON puts a web address on the seal of the tubs, which sends every­one to the US ver­sion. I’ve put the images of what each ver­sion is meant to look like in this review.3 — Taste of the Dou­ble rich choco­late. I like the taste! I also love the taste of BSN Syn­tha 6 — if you’ve tried that & like it, I think you will like this one too.Hope that helps!

    Bought on SaleBought this prod­uct on sale and it was well worth itThe prod­uct is gen­uine and tastes as it should­Good pro­tein con­tent from a rep­utable bran­dI recommend

  7. Bilal Masaud

    Authen­tic prod­uctFor any­one con­cerned about the authen­tic­i­ty of the prod­uct, I got con­cerned too because I have been buy­ing for over a year and noticed some dis­crep­an­cies in pack­ag­ing and once in colour. I emailed OPTIMUM NUTRITION all the batch num­bers for the prod­ucts I had and was con­cerned about, they wrote me back and told me that the prod­ucts were authen­tic and Ama­zon are their offi­cial distributor.

    Top Qual­i­ty Pro­tein for the aver­age human!!The media could not be loaded.

     So I am not a super gym freak but I want­ed to get health­i­er over all, so I opt­ed for some addi­tion­al sup­ple­ments to help me on my jour­ney. One of these sup­ple­ments was Opti­mum Nutri­tion’s Gold Stan­dard 100% WHEY (Extreme Milk Choco­late) I was not only rely­ing on this for my pro­tein intake, real food was also con­sumed. So I would have 3 meals and 3 shakes a day. After about a week are so I did lose some weight and gain some mus­cle. It wasn’t a mas­sive improve­ment but a good start in my eyes. Since then, due to injury, I have not been back to gym but I do still take this sup­ple­ment occa­sion­al­ly in the week as a quick meal. I like the taste and the nice thing for me is that the pro­tein mix­es well in both water and milk.Packaging:Well pack­aged, comes in a tub. I have seen oth­er in the reviews say­ing that the seal had been bro­ken when try­ing to open it. I have bought at least 6 tubs in the last 12 months and nev­er had this hap­pened to me.Product: The flavour I ordered is extreme milk choco­late, I real­ly like the taste and it mix­es well. I have used it with water, almond milk and 2% milk all mixed well and tast­ed great. I find that its not real­ly down to the pow­ders not mix­ing prop­er but some peo­ple don’t use good qual­i­ty mixers.Pros:*Tastes great*Mixes well*Free scoop in every tub*Good qual­i­ty protein*Versatile for what you need it for*Packaged wellCons:I haven’t had any as of yet. I still have a tub in the kitchen, that I now just use with my meal replacements.Conclusion:If you are look­ing for a good trust­ed brand this is a good choice in my opin­ion. I have used oth­er pro­tein brands in the past but this was the right one for me and I will con­tin­ue using it. I would def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend this prod­uct, whether you are going to gym, play­ing sports, or just want­i­ng to add addi­tion­al pro­tein boost to your diet.

  9. Ama­zon Customer

    1st time issue, Fake Prod­uctFirst time with an issue, once opened it had no air tight seal, sim­ply just a paper disc inside the lid which is not authen­tic accord­ing to opti­mum nutri­tion, size of the one on the right is com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent, nutri­tion info is com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent the smell was off also

  10. Mr. S. Robinson

    I put on mus­cle mass.I am one of those “hard gain­er” skin­ny types. I bought this Whey Pro­tein Pow­der and was lift­ing dumb­bells (at home) twice a week in var­i­ous ways to build up mus­cles around my arms and shoulders.For the first time in my life, I saw results. The day came where I looked at my arms and they no longer looked too skin­ny, and I actu­al­ly had to end up order­ing more weights because of my gains.In the end, I decid­ed that I actu­al­ly pre­ferred being skin­ny though. I feel that my mind and body oper­ate at peak effi­cien­cy when light­weight, and the big­ger I got, the more slug­gish I felt, and the more sleep I required, and the whole expe­ri­ence ulti­mate­ly made me appre­ci­ate the body I had initially.However, if I ever want to build mus­cle again, I would use this pow­der. If your goal is to build mass, this pow­der will absolute­ly do that, so I would rec­om­mend it completely.
