ON's 100% Whey Gold - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

ONís 100% Whey Gold is a low carb, high quality protein powder that won the supplement of the year and protein powder of the year award for 2005, 2006 and 2007. Each serving contains 24 grams of proprietary whey protein, more than 5 grams of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) and over 4 grams of glutamine and digestive enzymes. 100% Whey Gold was formulated to support lean muscle gain, promote recovery and enhance performance.

100% Whey Gold contains microfiltered whey protein isolates (WPI), hydro-whey hydrolyzed whey peptides, ultrafiltered whey protein concentrates and ion-exchange whey protein isolates. It provides more WPI - the purest and most expensive source of whey protein available. Whey protein promotes positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein) for faster muscle growth and recovery. The addition of BCAAís leucine, valine and isoleucine and conditionally essential amino acid glutamine help prevent muscle tissue breakdown and support muscle repair.

100% Whey Goldís digestive enzymes include aminogen and lipase. They enhance protein absorption and make this product more easily digested by lactose intolerant individuals. Aminogen is a naturally derived, patented plant enzyme that aids in protein digestion and assimilation. Lactase is the enzyme that digests lactose (the natural sugar in milk).


Pros

100% Whey Gold won the supplement of the year and protein powder of the year award for 2005, 2006 and 2007. Containing 24 grams of protein in a one-ounce serving, 100% Whey Gold is nearly 79% pure protein by weight. It is instantized, for instant mixability.

100% Whey Gold has the following benefits:

  • Won the protein powder of the year award 2005-2007

I've only had experience with a couple of different protein powder brands, so my review can be taken with a grain of salt. However, I have to admit that this brand is good quality and this specific flavor, Cookies and Cream, is really delicious. When mixed with non-fat milk, it almost tastes like a milk shake. It gives it a creamy texture, and it even has tiny little cookies bits (kind of like Oreos). Even with just plain water, the taste is above average. You're not going to crave the water+powder combo, but it's most definitely drinkable and doesn't taste unnatural like some other powders.

This is the best protein powder that I have consumed compared to other similar products. I did some research on the type of protein that is good for muscle building and everyday consumption and found a lot of information about whey protein. I researched different brands and found Optimum Nutrition very popular. I feel good after drinking protein shakes. I got the best deal on for a 5 lbs protein powder tub. I am so happy with the product.

This is the best protein on the market. Tastes great mixed in water or milk. It may be more expensive than other brands, but it is worth it. I lift weights 4-6 times per week and this protein has helped me reach my goals faster than compared to other proteins I have used, and I have tried them all. My relatives also use this product and they all satisfied!
