Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein Powder
  • The price varies depending on the flavour you like, as some flavours are more sort after than others I've got the banana flavored version and find it quite tasty
  • With water it does taste quite bitter, but with milk it's completely fine
  • This is quite decent compared to other brands that use whey, the carb content is under 2g, same for fat
  • The cost per serving is okay, it's definitely not the cheapest cost per serving
  • Protein powders are definitely not recommended if you don't need them, if you can eat normal food and have the same protein amount, do it

      This is a very good source of protein for people that hit the gym and cant get sufficient amounts of protein from normal food intake. Whey is a derivative of cheese. It’s value is around £24 for 908g, I purchased the 2.2kg for £44. The price varies depending on the flavour you like, as some flavours are more sort after than others I’ve got the banana flavored version and find it quite tasty. There are tons

      of different flavour variations to choose from. With water it does taste quite bitter, but with milk it’s completely fine. And also the place you purchase it from affects the price. I would suggest amazon.

      The protein content is 24g per serving. This is quite decent compared to other brands that use whey, the carb content is under 2g, same for fat. For some reason it does have quite a high ratio of glutamie. I don’t really understand why it has so much glutamine in, but it’s harmless so whatever…

      The cost per serving is okay, it’s definitely not the cheapest cost per serving. But the protein density per serving is definitely good. Some other protein powders also have an abnormally high amount of carbs in them. This may be fine if you’re bulking but if you’re not then it’s bad.

      The mixing is quite good, this could also vary on how you mix it.

      I use a protein shake with a metal spiraling ball that shakes it pretty well. I used a flat one before and that was awful, it hardly blended the protein. But also cleaning was horrific, you’d pull it out with all this banana clumpy stuff all over it. Definitely recommend using a ball or a blender depending if you’re on the go.

      There are lots of variances to protein powders, you could use, hemp, pea, soya, milk and rice protein. There are loads of others, these are alternatives if you’re vegetarian/vegan, dislike certain textures etc.

      Overall i’d recommend this protein to anyone who needs to supplement their diet. Protein powders are definitely not recommended if you don’t need them, if you can eat normal food and have the same protein amount, do it. This is only if you struggle to eat a large quantity of food or can’t afford a lot of chicken etc.
