Very good Protein powder - 02/27/2014 Overall Rating:4 out of 5 Reviewer:OdinSon from The great white north Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey
Mixes and tastes great. It's hydrolyzed, has BCAA's and is the 'new thing' If it was a few dollars cheaper I would of given it 5 stars
Delicious and it works - 01/01/2014 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:MomoCT from Connecticut Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey
I usually rely on O.N. Gold Standard for my whey protein needs. I was nervous that this product was the definition of price discrimination - take essentially the same thing, put it in a nicer silver tub and call it 'platinum'... charge more for less. However, I decided to give it a try, because I wanted to see if hydrowhey actually made a difference. Here's what I did: Normally, I'll take 2 scoops of Gold 4 times a day on a weightlifting day (morning, before workout, during workout, after workout). When I got the platinum hydrowhey, I used that instead for the latter two (during and after workout) assuming this would be when my muscles would be more responsive to the 'pre-digested' nature of the product.
Two things make me give this 5 stars:
1) I did a full circuit last night, after taking a few days off my normal schedule, because the delivery was a little messed up because of Xmas. I really pushed it, hoping to judge the effectiveness of the hydrowhey based recovery... this morning I woke up feeling great. Noticeably less sore than normal. That's the main reason I got this, and I'm impressed.
2) That alone is worth 5 stars but I should also add that this stuff is DELICIOUS. Got the chocolate flavor... oh man, I thought the Gold Standard tasted good... this is noticeably more tasty. It really tastes smooth and goes down like chocolate milk. Good stuff!
Great Product - 12/07/2013 Overall Rating:4 out of 5 Reviewer:Conor from New York Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey
Product mixed very well and tasted great. Tastes similar to chocolate milk and not chalky at all. Am seeing results and would definitely recommend and buy again.

The Best There Is - 03/31/2011 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:Marcus from Miami, Fl Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey
This is it! If there is a better all in one out there somebody better show me the money. I've been taking ON's Platinum Hydro Whey for a while now and it has never let me down. My powerlifts have become insane from the muscle i've built and the recovery time is the lowest it has every been for me. When you open the tub of this you can see the purity in the product. It mixes up really easy (I'm big on that) so you don't have a pile of goop at the bottom of your shaker. That is golden because after a hard workout your body needs every ounce of protein it can suck down and with the amount of BCAA's you get with the Hydro Whey ...... your body will thank you. With the Hydro Whey you can actually feel your body absorbing the nutrients, this ultimately helps your recovery time. Bottom line ... it's a little pricey but you get a great product, great taste and great results. It's worth every penny.
Fantastic - 03/31/2011 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:Stacey from Sacremento, CA Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey
I have been using Optimum Nutrition's Platinum Hydro Whey for two months while I train for a local women's fitness comp. I don't take as much as the guys so I won't get too big but I take it to help me develop lean muscle and get rid of any fat. I run a lot, do lots of aerobics and light weights (lots of reps to increase definition). Hydro Whey gives me more energy throughout my workout routine so I feel like I can do way more than I am doing. Everybody says they can see the difference in my development so I am going to stick with Hydro Whey.
