ON Platinum Hydro Whey

Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Whey 

I went for "Velocity Vanilla" (also comes in "Cookies and Cream Overdrive", "Turbo Chocolate" and "Supercharged Strawberry") I'm assuming the speed in the names refers to how fast insulin is able to shuttle the protein to the muscles.

Here's the blurb:
Platinum Hydrowhey is the fastest, purest, most advanced whey protein we've ever developed. In a word: excellence. By hydrolyzing the protein in this premium formula we've created our fastest-acting whey protein yet. Hydrolyzing breaks larger proteins down into smaller pieces that are able to get into your system rapidly, enabling your muscles to start rebuilding quickly. For added effectiveness, we've also enhanced this revolutionary formula with digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). In addition to being fast, Platinum Hydrowhey is also ultra-pure. That's because it's made entirely with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates. So there's no excess fat, cholesterol, or lactose to slow down your progress.

Mixed perfectly, a hint of grit, tasted a bit milky plasticky, but then I've never like the vanilla flavoured ones.
Taken after 5-5-5 75% of 1RM squats.

Tried the chocolate one. Have to be careful not to use too much water because it doesn't mix well and leaves you with a shake bottle of bits and weak tasting chocolate water. Champion Nutrition does this so much better.
