Why are we doing a PVL Iso Gold review?

iso-gold reviewSimply because it’s been one of the top Canadian isolate proteins on the market for the longest time. So lets dive a bit deeper with Iso Gold and find out where (and by who) its being made. Iso Gold is manufactured by Fit Foods in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada. What’s great about Fit Foods and their PVL line is that PVL is commitment to Drug Free Supplements for athletes of all types. iso gold ingredient labelThis means that if your looking for quality supplements for yourself, your family, or your friends, PVL should be at the top of your list for healthy, top of the line, supplements. So now that we know that Iso Gold is a top quality whey protein isolate from a top notch manufacturer in Canada, we can now look at this formula and try to figure out why it’s a top seller. When looking at top selling products, Most people want to know: Why it’s unique, How does it taste, How does it mix, and Why is this the best product for them?

Well, why is Iso Gold unique?

Iso Gold has 27 grams of protein per 31 gram scoop. That means that it’s an 87% whey protein isolate. So when compared to Isoflex by Allmax Nutrition, its 3% less pure, so why is this? Sometimes Isolate can taste pretty thin and watery, which makes it not that enjoyable. Iso Gold is a whey protein isolate that isn’t thin and watery, but it’s smooth and full of flavour.
This is because Iso Gold contains natural ingredients like guar gum, which help create a thickness to it (only slightly), as well as other ingredients like Probiotics, Enzymes, and Flavouring.

What Else Is Unique?


Another reason why Iso Gold is unique is that it contains a trademarked ingredient called ActiNOS, which is a special hydrolyzed protein that increases N.O production for increased protein absorption. In my other articles I have talked about the benefits of hydrolyzed protein (such as increased protein synthesis and recovery) so I will not talk about it here, but I will simply say, I will specifically look for protein products that have Hydrolyzed Protein in it, and I will buy them over proteins that don’t have Hydrolyzed protein.

Iso Gold Contains Enzymes and Probiotics? YEP!

One great feature of Iso Gold is that it contains enzymes and probiotics to help the absorption of protein and maintain a healthy micro-biome, which will boost your recovery and immune system!

Wait, does Iso Gold contain artificial sweeteners?

One specific thing that I like is that Iso Gold clearly states how much Sucralose it contains, which is 40mg per scoop. This is great because now you can track how much artificial sweeteners you are consuming, and if this is something that bothers you, you can limit your consumption of Sucralose in other foods and still have great tasting high quality protein with low levels of artificial sweetener. If you don’t feel comfortable consuming Sucralose, PVL has you covered with their natural line, specifically, Iso Sport Whey by PVL. So back to the Taste and Mixability of Iso Gold...

You have 5 amazing flavours to choose from:

  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla
  • Strawberry
  • Cookies and Cream
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate
All these flavours mix great in cold water without a shaker ball, so you don’t have to worry about clumping protein, chalky taste, and poor protein absorption.

My Flavour Choice?

Personally I stick with the chocolate flavour of Iso Gold (and Iso Sport Whey) because it tastes great, but a lot of people I have talked to absolutely love the Peanut Butter Chocolate because it tastes like a desert, so it cuts out your cravings for sugary foods.

Why should you choose Iso Gold?

PVL Iso Gold should be one of your top choices for Isolate whey proteins if your looking for a high quality Isolate with great absorption due to the technology and purity of it’s formula. Also, the great taste and mixability makes Iso Gold a treat for anyone who wants a great tasting whey isolate shake. So, if you’re looking for a top quality protein powder with an awesome formula that tastes great and has an amazingly smooth texture, check out PVL Iso Gold and let me know what you think! Hope you enjoyed this PVL Iso Gold review!
