DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Oct. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Optimum Nutrition ("ON"), the global leader in performance nutrition, today introduced Gold Standard 100% Isolate™ – a new addition to its GOLD STANDARD® line of products. Created for the macro-conscious athlete, ON Gold Standard 100% Isolate delivers 25 grams of premium, ultra-filtered whey protein isolates with one gram of carbohydrates and less than one gram of fat per serving.
"Gold Standard Isolate contains the fewest carbs of any ON protein," said Trevin Morton, senior brand manager for ON. "This product supports those who have ambitious performance and physique goals by delivering the highest quality protein and good taste, while keeping fat, carbs and sugar to a minimum."
To create Gold Standard 100% Isolate, ON selects only the highest quality whey protein. The protein then undergoes a series of sophisticated filtration processes to 'isolate' out excess fat, cholesterol, and sugar. A portion of this whey protein isolate is then hydrolyzed - broken down into smaller chains of amino acids. The final product is a fast-digesting complete protein that supports ambitious performance goals.
ON Gold Standard 100% Isolate contains more than 80 percent of pure protein per serving, along with 5.5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs, 4.3 grams of naturally occurring glutamine and glutamic acid and 11.4 grams of naturally occurring essential amino acids.
"Gold Standard Isolate is a great example of ON's commitment to quality and innovation," said Morton. "Our research and development team has delivered a product with great taste, high quality protein and great macros."
Gold Standard 100% Isolate is available in four flavors including Chocolate, Vanilla, Birthday Cake and Strawberry Cream.
Gold Standard 100% Isolate is available at sports nutrition retailers and online. For more information on Gold Standard 100% Isolate and other ON products, please visit www.optimumnutrition.com.
