Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey is a premium protein shake to support lean muscle gains.

Build Lean Muscle

The number one supplement that athletes and gym enthusiasts use is a whey shake.

It gives your body a good source of protein to repair muscle tissue from exercise and start the building process. Each serving of this shake provides you with 24 grams of quality protein.

Improved Workout Recovery

You need to recover from your workouts to maximize your fitness goals. Your body starts to transform during periods of rest provided it has the correct nutrition available.

With all the naturally occurring essential and nonessential amino acids, 4 grams of glutamine and 5.5 grams of BCAA’s this product is loaded with the right ingredients for optimal recovery.

Premium Quality

Optimum Nutrition is the most internationally recognized producer of premium protein shakes. 100% of the protein comes from whey which is manufactured in Ireland under strict EU GMO regulations.

3 Stage Blend

The high protein content per serving is achieved by using a blend of ultra-pure Hydrolysed and Isolate whey together with Concentrate. This mixture starts giving you protein almost immediately making it ideal for training recovery.

Better Absorption

If you are sensitive to lactose a digestive enzyme complex has been added to minimize the discomfort experienced from drinking a dairy-based protein shake.

The enzymes help your body to breakdown and absorb the protein and lactose more efficiently.

Best Seller

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey is possibly the best selling protein shake in the world. Known for its unrivalled quality it has developed a loyal following of athletes over the last 20 years.

Category: Protein Powder

Simply the best
Review by Jay(Date 8/18/16)
I've been drinking protein shakes for about 15 years now, from various suppliers, so trust me when I say this protein shake is the best - by MILES.

Why? Firstly, I've always hated the taste of protein shakes, but somehow ON figured out how to make them taste like actual milkshakes (even if you mix it with water, like I do). Just make sure you mix it properly (not too much liquid). And that is my other favourite thing about this product - I literally mix 1 scoop in about 150 ml of water! WITH A TEASPOON... and it's done! No more blenders and shakers filled with 500 ml of thick, disgusting-tasting gunk that makes you feel full and bloated...

But most of all, the results are obvious. (Assuming you know what you're doing in the gym). The quality of the muscle I gained over 6-8 weeks was unmatched by any other supplements I've taken. And it wasn't just me who noticed it, two guys actually came up to me in the gym and asked me how I got the definition in my muscles. My answer: "dumbbells, 10-12 reps, and ON Whey".

I don't care about the price. I can never go back to another protein shake.
Great product
Review by Cohen R(Date 2/9/16)
Been using it for 3 months now and I can see noticeable differences with regards to lean muscle. By far, the best whey on the market. Been using cookies and cream which smells and tastes devine!
Great... But pricy

Well I tried eveything. And only this works!
Review by Will(Date 8/26/15)
I have tried so many protein supplements and I always have the same reaction! POOP! But not this! This is the only Whey I can consume with no side effects. I would highly recommend this!

P.S. I am not lactose intolerant but can't stomach Whey Protein
Fantastic but expensive
Review by JP(Date 8/13/15)
I become depressed when it's finished because of the cost of replacing it, but I have seen the difference in quality compared to peers based on the results I experienced. Just expected a little more on the taste side, especially for the price you pay.
best prorein iv used
Review by kyle(Date 10/8/14)
On 100% whey is a very good protein powder, it works well with my body. It dissolves very very easy, doesn't have the best taste IMO. On 100% Whey goes perfect with on pure creatine!
Can never get enough!
Review by Zubie(Date 9/8/14)

I am stacking it with MuscleTech CreaCore at the end of every successful session.. Feel like an unstoppable juggernaut indeed.. Muscle fibers are ripping through my clothes..

Chocolate Supreme
Review by Johan(Date 7/11/14)
Mixes very well. Tastes good in both milk and water. Keeps my cravings under control. I've had good gains while using this product.
Cant go wrong
Review by gareth(Date 12/3/13)
Incredible product once again. This quite simply has to be one of the best if not the best protein supplements on the market! Been using it for months and will never change. Its pricey but worth every cent. Results can be seen and felt within short space of time.
NO 1 !!
Review by Tiaan(Date 11/26/13)
great taste and it mix very easy.
I've had Vanilla for a while now and it was the best tasting vanilla shake by far but I prefer Double Rich Choc
Review by Nick(Date 11/1/13)
The best protein product on the market by far. Premium price for premium results
excellent whey!
Review by Gareth(Date 10/14/13)
Took this protein after taking many others and it has definitely been the best out of all of them. Great results and the taste and texture of the shake is perfect and easy to get down after a hard workout. Big ups to optimum nutrition

Best of the Best
Review by Jason(Date 8/28/13)
Tried various flavors from this Gold Standard, besides that, great product, works really well, saw awesome gains of lean muscle, helped me during recovery.


Vanilla: 6/10 a little bland
Double Rich Choc: 10/10 Best by far!
Caramel Toffee Fudge: 8/10 awesome as well, for people with a sweet tooth.
Good stuff
Review by Hooligan(Date 7/12/13)
It works!
Review by Philip(Date 7/10/13)
Honestly, the best Whey Protein available today, taste and effectiveness are superb. I have nothing bad to say about this, my personal favourite.
The Best!!
Review by duncan(Date 5/29/13)
This is one of many few products that really guarantees for its worth honestly. When i used this people told me though could see a visible difference within 2 weeks. Only my 2nd time using it and can't wait to combine this with some hard work. Bit pricey, if you can afford it, go for it! Won't be disappointed, there's a reason its Gold Standard.
Review by wandi(Date 5/7/13)
This has to be the best supplement on the market. tastes great mixes well, it is a bit pricey but its worth the money. it also last long as well. combined with a good diet you can expect huge gains.
Review by Zubair(Date 4/2/13)
There is a reason why this is the number 1 selling supplement in the world at the moment. Taste is amazing but the results are outstanding.
Review by Mohammed(Date 3/10/13)
brilliant product, must have!!!

Review by ismail(Date 2/5/13)
best whey protein on the market
Best protein ever!
Review by Chad(Date 1/20/13)
You want to build muscle? You NEED this after the gym. Stops muscle catabolism and has some extra amino acids packed in there for you. A very good product by a very good brand.
Excellent Whey Protein
Review by Kickor(Date 1/11/13)
I have the Vanilla Flavoured ON 2.2 kg, & its excellent protein supplement.
Unfortunately, the Vanilla flavour is not very good & has a terrible after taste.

Best Whey Protein I've used yet, lean muscle gain visible.
Review by Renier(Date 12/25/12)
This is by far the best whey there is, and in rating around the world is proof thereof. bit pricey at first, but cause of the high standard of this whey, you use less per serving and therefore lasts longer. Must have in your training diet.
best whey ever
Review by Yusuf(Date 11/26/12)
This is the best whey i have ever used and the results are great as well as the taste money well spent.
Review by Shalla(Date 10/22/12)
I have been taking different shakes for years and this by far has been the best shake I have ever had. I would suggest this shake to any way....well up to O.N
Review by Cameron (Date 10/20/12)
I bought this product a month ago, it lasts for ever! Really put on some good muscle and helped cut at the same time! Something that is usually impossible, its a bit pricey but as I said it lasts really long, for the 2.2kg it lasts around a month and 2 weeks if you take 3 servings a day, best protein shake out there, and also loaded with bcaa's which is a plus, BUY THIS PROTEIN!
Review by Tiaan(Date 10/2/12)
Best whey in the world ... GO FOR IT
Review by Mak(Date 9/13/12)
Costs so much, because it's a quality product, that simple. If you can't afford it try muscle works superior whey, kauai use it in some of their smoothies. Costs R429 for 2000g. My favourite ON flavour so far is French vanilla creme, trying caramel toffee fudge next.
There's a reason it's called Gold Standard
Review by Edwin(Date 7/3/12)
I've used most brands on the market today and nothing compares it overall package.
My previous go-to protein was BSN Syntha 6 and I must admit I never thought I would find something nearly as effective and great tasting.
I mix this up with some BCAA', Creatine a tablespoon of peanut butter and a banana. The best tasting protein shake out there. No stomach problems as a bonus!!!
fantastic product
Review by Deidre(Date 6/27/12)
delicious tasting, rich and creamy but not too sweet.
very effective after 3 months of using i could see the results.
highly recommend, only downside is the price.
Not so bad
Review by Salatiso(Date 6/19/12)
I've recenctly acquired a bottle of this and can say relatively speaking its not that expensive considering you need not buy Glutamine or BCAA's.

In terms of taste it's ok but I found the consistency a little weak to be honest. In fact, I've decided to take this only as an after workout shake and will buy Synergy and use them together because I've had great results and I love both the taste and consistency of Synergy.
Goodstuff but Pricey
Review by Kyle (Date 6/18/12)
Been using this for about 3 weeks and can already see improvements. Definitely recommend this product, but only for the serious gymers and for the serious people who have the cash flow. Don't think i can afford this stuff again, which is very sad, was looking forward to getting more. Getting pricey now.
Review by Monard (Date 6/8/12)
I have been using this product for 6 months now, very good results. Taste great with both water or Skim milk (white water). Really recommended and the only product in a 5kg format. thumbs up!
Review by Kyle (Date 6/6/12)
Best tasting Shake by far!!! And ive been through a couple in my lifetime. First time to ON, due to budget. But can kick myself that i didn't get on this stuff earlier!! It really is value for money, specially the big pack!! Main thing i love is that it is so easy on the stomach, its pure and light!! Cant wait to order another!!
Review by Juan(Date 5/30/12)
Love the taste and texture. Just wish they could do something about the price.
Whey Gold
Review by Woldz(Date 5/23/12)
the brand is just the best, this is by far the best protein product out there. i tried it a while ago, gained 10 kgs of muscle, and i stayed lean. I recommend this product for all of my clients i train, and for anyone who wants to put some great amount of muscle
Awesome taste
Review by Timothy(Date 5/7/12)
Seriously the best tasting shake i've ever used.
Review by YN(Date 5/3/12)
Its easy to say this is one of the best protein products out there. it mixes easily and tastes great. The price for the S.A market though is way too high. Would have bought more if it was more economical.
Review by Cullen(Date 4/27/12)
Fantastic in every way. If you got the cash get the largest pack of the stuff, lasts forever and chocolate tastes awesome!

Best Whey
Review by Ari(Date 12/31/11)
Optimum is the best Whey in my opinion, Only problem is the price tag.
Great stuff!!
Review by Casper(Date 12/11/11)
Good product that has a great taste, has helped me allot
Effective and lighter
Review by Ashish(Date 11/1/11)
There is no doubt as this is the best protein and lighter to your stomach. It dissolves faster and feels light. As I am using this from past two months and I noticed bit growth .But I have one complaint which is the taste, I took banana flavour and this feels very sweet and leaves after taste also.
Review by B&D(Date 11/1/11)
First of all the taste is amazing. Got the chocolate mint flavour. Recommended to persons who'd like to gain serious mass!
Good source of protein
Review by Gareth(Date 10/31/11)
I bought a 4.5kg bag of this and found it quite satisfactory. My only real complain would be the taste, I bought the vanilla and I didn't like it at all, maybe the other flavours are better tasting, but the vanilla was really not that nice in my opinion.

Regardless of the taste, I would definitely recommend this product to anybody as I've gain some nice lean muscle mass while using this product as a post workout shake!
Review by Barrel(Date 10/26/11)
Amazing! Double Rich Chocolate tastes like a Wimpy Chocolate Milkshake! Been using for 2 weeks now and starting to see the results of this product! Best protein shake I have ever used!

This is not Fair to other brands! But that not my problem is it!

Worth every cent
Review by Fayaaz(Date 10/16/11)
Best whey protein on the market by far!
