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.

  1. Geor­gios Stathopoulos

    Gen­uine prod­uct?I got it deliv­ered today. It does not have a round disk at the cap, the serv­ing scoop does not a logo on it, the expiry date and batch are on the side, not at the bot­tom of the tub, it does not have a man­u­fac­tur­ing date, it does not have the usu­al mold mark at the bottom…Do I have a gen­uine product?

  2. Quoc Nguyen

    AvoidBought one here and one from Hol­land and Bar­rett. This one seems com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent to the one I bought from Hol­land and Bar­rett and not in a good way

  3. Faria

    Great gen­uine prod­uct. Authen­tic­i­ty con­firmed by ONLoved the Cook­ies and Cream and it does work!!!! The prod­uct is gen­uine!! I have writ­ten to ON to con­firm this, they trans­fered my query to Glan­bia Per­for­mance Nutri­tion who con­firmed the prod­uct is gen­uine. US X EU prod­ucts are dif­fer­ent on many aspects but be con­fi­dent this is a gen­uine prod­uct. EU made prod­ucts do not have a logo on the scoop!

    Cau­tion, Fake prod­uct!If you get a gen­uine one of these they are great. It’s hit and miss with Ama­zon though. The last one I got was gen­uine. I ordered a new one and fin­ished the last of the gen­uine one yes­ter­day. Today I opened the new one I ordered and made my shake as usu­al. I start­ed drink­ing and it was com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent, a hor­ri­ble soil flavour. It’s knock­ing me sick think­ing of it now.The orig­i­nal one had a nice flavour, this is vile. It’s not even like it has been a while since I had a real one so wouldn’t real­ly know, I lit­er­al­ly had the real one yes­ter­day and the fake one today so I know what it should taste like. Obvi­ous­ly fake and hor­ri­ble, not even a hint of choco­late flavour­ing. I feel bad for the peo­ple who buy for the first time and get the fake one and don’t know.I’ve includ­ed images of all the dif­fer­ences I could find on the pack­ag­ing, not sure if the num­bers on the plas­tic of the lid and base mean any­thing but they were dif­fer­ent so I includ­ed them. The main dif­fer­ence was the BBE stamp was big and spaced out on the real one but cramped on the fake one and only the fake one had that “UK MG101” stamped on it.Hope this stops you get­ting ripped off.

    Best taste for a pro­tein shakeAll pro­tein pow­ders are the same (or should be) on the con­tent, they all have pro­tein. What makes the dif­fer­ence between them is in the taste, and this one has to be the best. I have recent­ly ordered the new Choco­late Hazel­nut, and it’s exquis­ite. It’s almost like you are not drink­ing a pro­tein shake, but an actu­al milk­shake. The clas­sic Dou­ble Choco­late taste is also quite good. I found banana cream too sweet, but still accept­able. One caveat, though, I high­ly rec­om­mend tak­ing it with milk (my per­son­al mix is 150g of milk, 150g of water and 2 scoops of pro­tein pow­der). If mixed with water only, it does not have any con­sis­ten­cy and looks more like dirty water.I would not go with any oth­er pro­tein powder.

    AVOID POSSIBLE COUNTERFITUnfor­tu­nate­ly I have already binned this so I can’t upload a pho­to. How­ev­er, tex­ture is very ‘sandy’ and the colour is not the usu­al white (when I got it from Hol­land and Bar­ret) but an off yel­low colour. Addi­tion­al­ly the taste is vile and can only be described as ‘out of date’. When inspect­ing the tub it claims its expiry is June 2023 but I would­n’t be sur­prised if this is a far old­er batch.For com­par­i­son I went into my local Hol­land and Bar­rett and pur­chased an iden­ti­cal tub of the same flavour with the same expiry (June 2023). No sur­prise here that the H&B tub was white, not sandy and actu­al­ly tast­ed of the flavour on the tub (most­ly a lot sweet­er as pre­vi­ous 1 star reviews have men­tioned). Fol­low­ing some more inves­ti­ga­tion I would either think this is the com­pa­ny attempt­ing to reseal old pow­der since the pan­dem­ic or its being cut with some­thing. Either way, I am not at all hap­py and aside from the lost mon­ey I find it high­ly irre­spon­si­ble to either lie or have no qual­i­ty assur­ance on health prod­ucts. Main­ly con­sid­er­ing that any­one order­ing this is like­ly high­ly con­sci­en­tious when it comes to health and fit­ness and the prod­uct is ‘off’ so it could have a neg­a­tive impact on seri­ous training.There is no excuse.

  7. AF

    This is not legit ON WheyI’ve been using ON Whey for over 10years. It’s the only whey pro­tein I buy. I know the range well and I very rarely use any oth­er brands as I’m seri­ous about my train­ing and I want the best sup­ps for the best results.The recent tub of Choco­late Mint ON Whey is total­ly dif­fer­ent to what I’ve had over the years.The lid, label, size of tub and even the scoop inside are all dif­fer­ent. Tbh it looks and feels like a cheap Chi­nese knockoff.Whoever is the buy­ing lead of these prod­ucts for Ama­zon should be sacked. You obvi­ous­ly got ripped off and who­ev­er sold you this to sell on Ama­zon is laugh­ing all the way to the bank.

  8. Tani

    Great Flavour, Orig­i­nal SealAfter read­ing the top rat­ed reviews I was hes­i­tant to buy this pro­tein pow­der via Ama­zon (oth­er buy­ers receiv­ing the tub with a bro­ken or not orig­i­nal seal) but I did not want to pay ship­ping on top of the £23.99, which is the more expen­sive end for a pro­tein pow­der in my opin­ion. I ordered the Vanil­la Ice Cream Flavour and it had the real orig­i­nal seal on it. I’m glad to say that this is the best pro­tein pow­der I have ever had. I’ve tried var­i­ous flavours from myPro­tein, pHD and The­P­ro­tein­Works. Opti­mum Nutri­tion beats them all. It mix­es very smooth­ly and has a pleas­ant vanil­la taste, not too sweet and sick­ly. It’s dou­ble the price than the oth­er brands but I will only be buy­ing this pro­tein from now on.

  9. Ama­zon Customer

    Sharp Plas­tic found in Gold Stan­dard Whey pro­tein pow­derPur­chased this item only to find half way through it a plas­tic item small enough to fit in the scoop and for me to near­ly choke on had some­how got in to the con­tain­er. I called Opti­mum Nutri­tion who were quite help­ful and would raise it inter­nal­ly but asked me to raise it with Ama­zon as they were the end supplier.Called Ama­zon and they said we will refund you and to just bin the prod­uct that i had already con­sumed half off. They did­n’t appear to care that i near­ly choked on the item when drink­ing it from my shak­er or that there may be many more con­tain­ers with this issue. I was advised to read the reviews to check if any­one else had this prob­lem and they might remove the prod­uct until fur­ther inves­ti­ga­tionA­ma­zon your cus­tomer ser­vice is a discrace

  10. Sara

    FAKE PRODUCT, DO NOT BUY!I ordered this as it was an Ama­zons Choice, which made me think it is a gen­uine prod­uct, how­ev­er on inspec­tion it did­nt seem right. I checked with the man­u­fac­tur­er and every­thing they high­light as to a gen­uine prod­uct does not appear on this product.1 — there is no pro­duc­tion date, only expirey date, man­u­fac­tur­er states there must be a pro­duc­tion date2 — The gold mea­sur­ing scoop does not have the com­pa­ny brand­ing on it, and looks total­ly dif­fer­ent to the gen­uine one3 — Gen­uine prod­ucts have a card­board seper­a­tor inside the lid, this did not have it at all4 — The pro­tein should not stick to the inside of tub on gen­uine prod­ucts, how­ev­er this one is stuck all over the inside5 — the mark­ing on the bot­tom of the tub do not match what the gen­uine one has accord­ing to their offi­cial website6 — tried to dis­solve a small amount in water and it did­nt dis­solve as expect­ed, turned lumpyI would not risk putting this into my body, and advise you not to risk it. I am shocked ama­zon is allow fake prod­ucts to be sold on their plat­form. Unbelieveable.
