Gold standard Gainer is going to mark a major change in the gainer category, and RockHard Supplements are extremely excited on the arrival of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer. Gainer consumers spoke and Optimum Nutrition listened. They told ON. that they have concerns over maltodextrin and the quality of ingredients used in current Gainers, and they have concerns over mixability. Not surprisingly they also wanted it to taste amazing. We’re excited to announce that Optimum Nutrition has come up with a Gold Standard quality solution for their needs and performance goals!

Optimum Nutrition first expanded its Gold Standard name outside of protein into the pre-workout category with the 2014 released Gold Standard Pre-Workout. Optimum Nutrition then did the same again earlier this year when they unveiled Gold Standard BCAA. Another extension making use of the well-known name has now been revealed with the obviously named Gold Standard Gainer, which RockHardSupplements.com.au are extremely excited to stock.
Optimum’s upcoming Gold Standard Gainer is exactly what it sounds like, a mass protein formula combining protein and carbohydrates. The supplement definitely falls on the leaner side of gainers as it is quite a bit below the 1,000 calorie mark. Its macro balance is actually along the same lines as the brand’s Pro Complex Series competitor Pro Gainer, just with a few extra calories from carbohydrates and fat.
Making up each two scoop, 203g serving of Gold Standard Gainer is 55g of protein from a blend of whey isolate, concentrate, milk isolate, and hydrolyzed whey. 112g of carbohydrates (8g fiber, 12g sugar), most of which comes from its carbohydrate blend of oat flour, Carb10, and potato starch, 10g of fat (6g saturated), and a total of 760 calories. The most interesting highlight there has to be the product’s inclusion of Compound Solutions’ Carb10, a pea sourced carbohydrate best described as a fast-acting carb with less of an insulin spike compared to others.
