Glanbia-owned Optimum Nutrition has launched a new grab-and-go protein beverage, available exclusively at GNC retailers in the US.
Each 11oz serving of Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein drink has 24g of protein from 100% whey protein concentrate and 5.5g of naturally occurring branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).
The drinks come in vanilla and chocolate flavours, in single servings (with a suggested retail price of $3.29) and a 12-pack case ($34.99).
“This is a huge development for longtime fans of ON protein, and for new users, who are looking for a way to supplement that fits in today’s on-the-go lifestyle,” said Sarah Lombard, director of brand marketing for Optimum Nutrition.
“Our research and development team worked long and hard to create a formula that meets ON’s high standards for great taste and nutritional value – making this new beverage the Gold Standard by which all other whey protein drinks will be measured.”
Though best served chilled, the beverage doesn’t require refrigeration until opened, increasing consumption occasions.
“It’s never been easier to get great-tasting, ON-quality protein on the go,” added Lombard. “We’re pleased to partner with another market leader in sports nutrition, GNC, to continue to innovate and evolve the category to help people reach their fitness and nutrition goals.”
