100% Whey Gold Standard
 

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 100% Whey Gold Standard 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.

FAQ's
What is Whey?
Whey protein is a high quality protein derived from milk. Whey contains the highest Biological Value (BV– a value that measures how well the body can absorb and utilize a protein) of all known protein sources. It is a complete protein source with all 22 amino acids and all 8 essential amino acids. It is the richest known source of naturally occurring BCAAs .

What are the main types of whey proteins and how do they differ from each other?
Whey Protein Isolates
• It is the most pure form of whey protein available. • It contains 90% or more protein and very little (if any) fat and lactose. Whey Protein Concentrates • Has between 34% and 80% protein depending upon the product. • As protein level decreases, the fat and/or lactose levels usually increases. Whey Protein Hydrolysates • They are proteins that have been partially broken down (pre-digested) into smaller pieces so that they get into your system faster. • They are more expensive than both concentrates & isolates.  

Which is better, whey concentrate (WPC) or whey isolate (WPI)? Why?

Both have their own beneficial properties. While WPC’s have an intact micro fraction profile, WPI’s have a higher protein %. Ideally, your protein powder should contain a blend of both WPI and WPC.

What about the protein quality of WPC and WPI?

The quality of your WPC or WPI varies based on the type of filtration method used to extract the whey protein. For WPC’s, Ultra-filtration is the method of choice. For WPI’s, Cross flow microfiltration (CFM) and Ion-Exchange (IE) are the methods of choice, with CFM being superior to IE in keeping the micro-fraction profile intact. Some products being marketed these days, claim absurdly high protein percentages (as much as 93%). This should be looked upon with scepticism, especially with the Chinese melamine scare on, which artificially boosts the protein content of foods. Ideally, if your protein powder doesn’t employ any of the above filtration methods (CFM or IE), stay away.  

How do I calculate the perceentage protein in my supplement?
The protein percentage is another way to compare proteins to make an informed decision. While the Nutrition Facts panel tells you how much protein there is in a serving, the protein percentage tells you just how pure your protein is. To calculate, simply divide the number of grams of protein in a single serving by the serving size and then multiply this number by 100. Here’s a quick example of how it works: 24 g protein / 29.4 g serving size x 100 = 81.6% pure protein 26 g protein / 35 g serving size x 100 = 74.3% pure protein  

Some products have a protein percentage as high as 93%?!
Some products being marketed these days, claim absurdly high protein % (as much as 93%). These would certainly be false label claims as when you add the flavors, emulsifiers, cocoa etc, the maximum protein % which you can obtain would be at best- 85%. Preferably, stick with a whey blend utilizing multiple whey filtration methods with WPI as the primary source. Example, ON’s 100% WHEY GOLD STANDARD meets this criteria which probably makes it the # 1 selling whey protein powder worldwide for over a decade now, due to the fact that it utilizes 4 sources of whey protein and has WPI as primary protein source.  

Some products claim to have better numbers on their labels than the 100% Gold Standard Whey® by stating that they have, for example, 25g protein out of an “about 30g” serving size. Are these superior to the 100% Gold Standard Whey®?
Per strict FDA rules, a company must state its exact serving size down to the last decimal. Some companies will print their serving sizes as “about 30g” on their label, but this could mean a range from 29.1g to 30.9g. In simple words, it’s a cheap ploy to fool the customers. A quality conscious company would always use exact serving sizes on their labels. ON’s 100% Gold Standard Whey® is the industry’s best selling protein for 3 reasons- Rock solid quality, Iron clad label claims, Unbeatable consistency.  

What is the meaning of ‘primary source’?

As per the FDA law, the ingredients in a product must be listed in descending order of predominance. So primary protein source means that it is the most abundant & would be listed higher up in an ingredient label. So, for example, if WPI is listed before WPC, it means that WPI is the primary protein source in that product. (good e.g. is ON’s 100% WHEY GOLD STANDARD which is the only whey blend having WPI as primary protein source).

What do I look for when choosing my whey protein?
Whey protein powders are ubiquitous and all over the place these days. But beware! All whey protein powders are not created equal (just like all cars are not a Mercedes). So you have your run-of-the-mill whey proteins, and then you have your Mercedes of whey protein powders. Here’s how to choose:
  • Brand reputation: of utmost importance. A reputable brand will stick to label claims for protein % etc. A lot of the newer and lesser known brands would exaggerate their label claims values just to measure up to the bigger brands while offering very low prices, and unsuspecting customers get easily carried away thinking they are getting a better value. Remember, protein is a very expensive ingredient to produce and you get what you pay for. If you find a smaller and lesser known brand stating unbelievable label values, watch out!
  • Check whether it’s a multi source whey blend or a single source isolate: Multi-source whey blends comprising a combination of whey protein isolates as well as concentrates are a better bet than single source whey isolates. You not only get a product at a much lower price, but the other add-ons in whey blends (as described below) actually end up producing a more user friendly product than the overpriced single source whey isolates.
  • Check whether whey isolates are the primary source of your whey blend: although the point described above is true, beware of the majority of whey blends which have whey concentrates (WPC) as the primary protein source. These products end up adding whey isolates in very small quantities just to make the label look impressive. Go for a whey blend which has whey protein isolates (WPI) as the primary protein source.
  • Check whether hydrolyzed whey peptides (HYDROWHEY®) is a part of the formula: check whether your powder has these shorter chains of amino acids called whey peptides. These are absorbed much faster than regular WPC or WPI and are highly desirable post workout (after workout).
  • Digestive enzymes: Digestive enzymes such as Aminogen® help digest your whey protein better. Ensure that they form part of your formula.
