Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight. They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists. That’s why they are the first ingredients you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. 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, with 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.
French Vanilla Crème
Double Rich Chocolate
Nutrition Facts: I have added this image of some nutrition facts, but I must point out that it needs to be used as an average between each flavors as there was a slight difference in different flavors.
First thoughts: As I opened the powder the smell from the flavor came out and is a great smell, the powder is a nice consistency and color.
Appearance: The product packaging is very inviting and straight to the point on what you need to know about the whey protein.
Taste: I tried these flavors with water and semi-skimmed milk, all of the flavors tasted really good with milk and water but I liked them more with milk, when in water the taste is still very nice and doesn’t have any bad after tastes like other brands.
Smell: The smell is very sweet and strong on all the flavors and in a great way, the smell is in a way addictive to smell.
Texture: I found that I got two different textures one when mixing the flavors with milk and a different one when mixing with water, none of these textures were a bad one just different, I found that once the powder is mixed well with the milk and water they consistency becomes slightly thicker.
Pros: Really easy to mix and tastes really good, on the packaging ON say if you have forgot your shaker “then stir it up with a spoon. keep stirring for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved” I gave this a go and found it also worked well, in the past I have tried this with other brands and ended up with lumps at the top of my drink. I also liked the French vanilla Crème flavor the best out of the 3 flavors I tried.
Cons: I couldn’t really find any, I was surprised how much I was happy and liked the product, the only thing I found was that it was very moreish but that could be just me as I am a little greedy.
