The Bigger Picture of Whey:
Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight. They are the purest and most expensive for of whey protein that exists.

By using Whey Protein Isolates as our primary protein source, we're able to pack 24 grams of the purest muscle-building protein per serving, and a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without. There's no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.

For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day. Spoon Stirred: 100% Whey Gold Standard is instantized. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of 100% Whey Gold Standard to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. Shaker: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add one rounded scoop of 100% Whey Gold Standard to your shaker cup and then pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Tip: Mixing one scoop with 6-8 oz of nonfat milk instead of water will give you a thicker, creamier shake. Blender: Add one rounded scoop of 100% Whey Gold Standard to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, 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 a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, unflavored yogurt, coconut, silvered almonds, or other ingredients. Stack Your Shake: By adding other supplements including creatine, glutamine, taurine (e.g. CGT10), and or BCAA powders you can make 100% Whey Gold Standard an even more powerful post-workout recovery product.
