Optimum Nutrition FAQs

In general, Optimum Nutrition powders are suitable for lacto-vegetarians as they contain milk-sourced ingredients.

Many of Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard 100% Whey products are gluten-free with this clearly called out on the pack. Note that the 'Cookies & Cream' and 'Choc Malt' flavours are NOT gluten-free. Please check the on-pack allergen information before use.

In terms of the number of protein shakes per day, there is no absolute figure as this depends on your protein intake from food. You should aim to consume the majority of your protein from food and then use a shake as a convenient way of topping up your intake.

Your protein intake should vary between 1.4-2g/kg body weight to support performance, going towards the higher end if you are aiming to build muscle. Also to support recovery and performance  your protein should be evenly spread across the day, aiming for 20-30g of protein at each meal.

There is no best time to take a protein shake as it can be taken at any time throughout the day but a protein shake after a workout is a good option as it provides the muscle with a high-quality protein source which is delivered to the muscles fast after exercise.

Gold Standard 100% Isolate is 100% whey protein isolate compared to Gold Standard Whey which contains both whey protein isolate (WPI) and whey protein concentrate (WPC) in its formulation.

Gold Standard 100% Isolate therefore has slightly more protein (25g/serve) than Gold Standard 100% Whey (24g/serve) and a lower level of carbohydrate and fat per serving, which could therefore suit the macro-conscious consumer. However, both protein powders support muscle growth and repair effectively.
