Product Info

Platinum Hydrowhey is the fastest, purest, most advanced whey protein Optimum Nutrition's ever developed. In a word: excellence. By hydrolyzing the protein in this premium formula we've created our fastest-acting whey protein yet. Hydrolyzing breaks larger proteins down into smaller pieces that are able to get into your system rapidly, enabling your muscles to start rebuilding quickly.

For added effectiveness, we've also enhanced this revolutionary formula with digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). In addition to being fast, Platinum Hydrowhey is also ultra-pure. That's because it's made entirely with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates. So there's no excess fat, cholesterol, or lactose to slow down your progress either.

Beyond the Basics:
• Made With advanced Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolates for Faster Delivery
• 30 Grams of Ultra-Pure Protein Per Serving

• Nearly 9 Grams of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (BCAAs)

• No Lactose, Cholesterol, or Sugar

• Contains Digestive Enzymes for Enhanced Utilization

• Instantized to Mix Easily With a Spoon

Platinum Hydrowhey® is INSTANTIZED, so it always mixes up easily and completely.
• Simply add 1 scoop of Platinum Hydrowhey® to a blender, shaker cup, or glass filled with 340ml of cold water, milk, or juice and blend, shake, or stir for 20-30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.
• TIP:
Adjust the intensity of your Platinum Hydrowhey® shake by varying the amount of liquid you use to prepare it.
• For a slightly thicker consistency with a bolder flavor, mix each scoop with 300ml of water.
• For a milder tasting less sweet shake, use 400-450 ml of liquid per scoop.

Stack Your Shake:
• By adding dietary supplements including creatine, BCAA, and carbohydrate powders you can make Platinum Hydrowhey® an even more powerful recovery product.
• TIP:
Use faster acting Platinum Hydrowhey® during the day and more slowly digested Gold Standard 100% Casein™ at night for around-the-clock amino acid coverage.

Suggested Use:
• Consume approximately 2 grams of protein per kg of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements.
• For best results consume your daily protein allotment over several meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Review by Kyle  (25 June 2012)
This is very pure and light!! Almost to good to be true!! But can immediate feel it does work and goes straight to work as soon as you finish your shake. Very good product. If you have the cash, go for it, if not, there are other options.

Great for cholesterol
Review by Ari (31 December 2011)

Best whey protein
Review by Edwill (22 September 2011)
Some excellent results with this protein. But it really doesn't mix as well as I thought it would.
Awesome well balanced post workout Whey Protein shake!
Review by RICHARD (29 June 2011)
In comparison to other whey proteins, this is really a very effective product in terms of taste and texture and efficiency. The product is light on the tummy after consumption. Best Whey Protein I've tried so far!

I have seen major results in comparison to previous whey products and I feel the difference, not only in my muscle size but also in the quality muscle being formed.
A well balanced product which i recommend to any one taking muscle building seriously.
Good Product
Review by Juan-Pierre (8 June 2011)
I used this product for about 3 - 4 months. It is a great product ! Vanilla taste is good. It gives the results it promises to give. Good on strength and gains. Loving it !
Review by G-Wizz (17 April 2011)
Absolutely the best protein! Easy to digest and gentle on the stomach at the end of a workout. You can almost feel Platinum HydroWhey flood into your muscle bellies. Taste is spot on, no bitter aftertaste. My only complaint is the price but if you think about what you getting, it's worth it!
Super effectiveness
Review by Dale  (20 March 2011)
This is a product for the serious gym addicts!

Hydro Whey is the most effective Whey protein in existence due to the fact that optimum nutrition has developed a super formula which breaks this protein down into its purest form allowing the human body to absorb the necessary protein fast and effectively for full muscle recovery in the shortest time.
Use this product straight after your extreme workouts and let your body be embraced in pure protein perfection!

I never use to care much about the brand of protein I used until I started using ON protein. Im now able to push my body to its physical limits daily due the the effectiveness of this ultimately superb protein. Dont bother with the illegal stuff guys, using a good protein(Hydro whey) and gyming hard will reveal the results u want, i promise!
Review by Allan (4 November 2010)
Platinum Hydrowhey is the fastest, purest, most advanced whey protein Optimum's ever developed.

Byw far the best protein on the market. The only draw back is price? but if you have the bucks then this portein is AMAZING!

It tastes great except when mixed with water.
Best protein by far
Review by Synergy (1 October 2010)
I have been a big fan on the ON gold whey, and after trying the platinum range I must say it tastes amazing, just have to wait and see the gains I get from it.
Review by Boykie (27 July 2010)
