    Comes to $127.92 with free shipping for the 4.55kg bag of gold standard whey. Decent but not the cheapest it has been.

      CODE: OZBARGAIN will still get you the 4.55kg bag for 124.90 until the end of month also, I just tried.

      ON gold standard whey would have to be one of the worst quality protein powders you can buy. Added ingredients include soy lecithin, Sucralose and Acesulfame-K (artificial sweeteners) and FD&C yellow #5 (which is now banned in Austria and Norway requires a warning label in the EU). There are much cleaner and cheaper protein powders available that don't contain this junk.

        What are the cleaner and cheaper alternatives?

          5kg for $107 delivered. But don't expect flavours: https://www.professionalwhey.com.au/aus-whey-protein-concent...

            @aldroid: That's a WPC though and can't be compared to this product.

              @aligind4h0us3: OK. I used to take WPI. I challenge anyone to definitively prove that taking WPI over WPC results in bigger gains. The rate of absorption is negligible. The only benefit of WPI is if you are lactose intolerant.
              I now take WPC, collagen protein and occasionally a night-time casein protein which works well for me but each to their own.

                @aldroid: WPI is higher protein, lower carb and lower fat compared to WPC. WPI isn't lactose free either - it has just been processed more so it has a lower lactose content.

                I do think that WPC is worth getting over WPI for value for money, as long as lactose isn't an issue for you.

                  @aligind4h0us3: Yes, you are correct about the lactose. For most people the lower carb and lower fat is negligible unless you're cutting for competition (maybe). As for the protein %, if you need more just add another half or third scoop. It still works out cheaper than WPI. And just for reference, the ON has 77% protein the Professional Whey WPC is 76%.

                  @aligind4h0us3: Anyway, the point of my comment was not to provide a product with an equivalent nutritional profile, it was to highlight the fact that ON Gold Standard Whey (and many other big name brands) contain a lot of shit ingredients and are not as great value as they may appear. And that if you care about what goes into you body you might want to consider alternative brands that don't contain these additives.

          Personally I use Pure Product Australia WPI - 5KG for $106. Always get a mix of Chocolate, Banana and Vanilla which all mix pretty well! I’ll often add berries, bananas or peanut butter if I’m after something a bit extra!

            @jj212: Thanks, that stuff looks pretty good. Stevia is one of the better sweeteners. I'm just not a fan of soy lecithin. But finding protein powder without it is quite a challenge.

        Haha, down-voted for pointing out facts. Love that. Enjoy poisoning yourselves.
