So what is 100% Whey? Precisely what it says it is! This Optimum Nutrition best-seller is comprised of a two whey protein blend and packs a massive punch in the per serve department! Not solely focussed on your intra-workout, 100% Whey also includes BCAAs and Glutamine for the all important recovery session, getting you back to your best in less time!
How does 100% Whey Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition work?
As mentioned, 100% Whey is helped along by a two protein blend that delivers a highly impressive 24g of lean protein per serve! Whey protein isolate heads the pack in this instance, with the secondary whey protein concentrate source coming in to provide a slower rate of release - great for satiety. What truly makes this a 'Gold Standard' product is the incredibly lean 4g of carbohydrates, allowing you to train with added confidence while eliminating lethargy from your workout!

We really can't sing the praises of 100% Whey highly enough! Being one of the world's most recognisable protein labels, there isn't much Genesis can say that hasn't already been covered. This truly is just a well put together, comprehensive WPI+WPC blend that countless companies continue to try and emulate. Mixability is also a massive factor to consider with 100% Whey, a test it certainly doesn't have any problems acing. A true all-rounder for the ages!
