Optimum 100% Whey Protein
My name is Steven Sidorski and the product I am reviewing is called 100% Whey Gold Standard and is produced by Optimum / Optimum Nutrition. The flavour I was given to review is called Caramel Toffee Fudge. For those who are addicted to gourmet coffees from places such as Seattle Coffeehouse or Starbucks, go right ahead just buy the Mocha Cappuccino flavour instead which has enough caffeine. Also if you need more caffeine then you would obviously add more.
For this flavour, the following nutritional information has been extracted on a 32g scoop basis: 24g of protein, 5.5g of BCAAs, 4g glutamine & precursors. Each pound provides 14 servings.
I would say the taste was quite good as it was not too rich but it was also not too bitter. It was a nice change from all the supplements that only come in chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. For each cup of milk it is probably good to have one scoop but not a heaping scoop. That was my optimum flavour / taste. However, the more you add the better it tastes! It even tastes better than the other flavour I have tried which was Mocha Cappuccino but the trade off is no caffeine.
Regarding all 100% Whey Gold Standard flavours, the importance of hydrowhey which goes into this product is the fact that hydrowhey hydrolysed whey peptides are pure whey proteins that have been partially broken down or hydrolyzed into fragments called peptides. Because of their smaller size, whey peptides are more rapidly digested and readily absorbed than intact proteins. So, they are exceptionally useful when taken before and immediately after training. That is why you will find them in every jug of the industry's leading protein on the market.
I recommend you start with the one pound bottle if you prefer any of these other cool flavours: mocha cappuccino, orange cream or root beer float. If you are adamant for more flavours such as apple cider, apple pie, banana cream, chocolate malt, chocolate mint, cookies n' cream, delicious strawberry, double rich chocolate, eggnog, extreme milk chocolate, French vanilla creme, rocky road, strawberry banana, sugar cookie, tropical punch or vanilla ice cream then be sure to order the two pound bin. There are additional flavours if you order any five pounds bins.
Notice: Do not use as a sole source of nutrition. Warning: Keep out of reach of young children. Store the container in a cool and dry place.
If you are not sure which flavour to try, a rule of thumb is to select the ones that are low in stock.
