Not all protein powders are made equal. Some are lean and pure with the capability to really add the edge on your performance and growth, others are little more than a marketing ploy actually stacked full of cheap ingredients, and unwanted carbs and fats. Without a single doubt or worry, Gold Standard Isolate is the former. With a lean and pure protein like Gold Standard Isolate on your side you can expect to see your athletic performance, physique and recovery rate sky rocket. Protein, as the building block of muscle, is the determinant of your body's ability to make real gains - through the rebuilding of damaged muscle tissues and the building of new muscle tissues. Gold Standard Isolate provides the highest quality and most pure of ingredients, in the most fast acting and readily utilised form possible, to kick-start the repair and recovery process almost instantly.
So what actually is Gold Standard Isolate? Gold Standard Isolate is comprised of 100% pure Whey Protein Isolate (WPI). To create Whey Protein Isolate, milk goes through the highest level of filtration - to take out almost all fat, cholesterol, lactose, carbs and sugars. This makes Gold Standard Isolate an incredibly lean and healthy protein. But, it also makes Gold Standard Isolate extremely dense in protein and nutrients - since that's essentially all that is left in the powder! This purity leaves your body with premium fuel to boost recovery and muscle synthesis, without any presence of the carbs and fats to set you back on achieving a lean body.
Another positive towards Gold Standard Isolate, as a pure Whey Protein Isolate powder, is its superior digestibility. As mentioned above, the filtration process to create isolate powder filters out a number of nutrients, such as lactose, that often cause some issues on the stomach and with digestibility. If you've noticed stomach cramps, excess gas, digestive discomfort or just a heavy feeling in the stomach after drinking protein before - lactose may likely be the cause. With Gold Standard Isolate, you still get all the vital nutrients and optimal amino acid profiles of milk-derived protein powders, but without any of the negative side effects.
Most importantly, Gold Standard Isolate keeps your taste buds happy too. Whether you yourself have tried a gluggy, gritty, watery or powdery tasting protein shake, or you've just heard horror stories from your mates about it, we promise you Gold Standard Isolate bears no similarity. Gold Standard Isolate is best described as a milkshake - creamy, smooth, milky and perfectly sweet. Your daily protein shake will be your favourite time of the day, it truly tastes that good.
How does this protein differ to other types (that are cheaper)?
Whey Isolate is a better quality, slower release protein. Therefore, the release to your body and muscle is slower, leaving you feeling fuelled and fuller for longer. This protein is ideal for those who like to use protein as a way to curb hunger throughout the day, or are looking for a higher quality fuel after their workouts.

Gold Standard 100% Isolate
Not great as it foams up and doesn't taste all that nice. It's okay for the price, If you don't care about taste, its great.
PROS - No grittiness when mixed, nice flavour with milk, great ingredients
CONS - No flavour when mixed with water, Unusually frothy
The fact that I couldn't stand drinking this with just water, defeated the macro content purpose of this protein for me. Also it was SO frothy when mixed I would have to wait 5 mins for the froth to subside before drinking, otherwise it was like a mouthful of foam. I will be going back to my faithful Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein, which I can't really fault at all
I was using ON gold standard Whey protein and decided to try the Isolate. It still mixes fantastically in typical ON tradition and I found the flavour (vanilla) was good when mixed with milk. But with water it was gross. Kind of defeats the purpose of it being less calories than the whey protein if I can only drink it with milk. Also found it VERY frothy and had to wait to drink it.
I am going back to the Gold Standard Whey which I find tastes better with water and doesn't get frothy.
