Supplement Spotlight: Optimum Nutrition Introduces PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ Red Velvet Flavor

Exciting new flavor innovation from "most advanced," fast-digesting whey protein

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Optimum Nutrition ("ON") today announced the arrival of the newest flavor addition to its celebrated PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ line – Red Velvet Cake. The product offers ON's hydrolyzed whey protein formula in a delicious, on-trend flavor for athletes seeking the most advanced fast-acting whey protein for muscle building and recovery.

"Red velvet cake is an in-demand flavor – but it wasn't enough for ON just to jump on the bandwagon," said Stuart Heflin, director of North America marketing for ON. "Our iteration had to meet our high ON standard for innovation and the result is a formulation that captures the taste of red velvet cake perfectly – including the hint of cream cheese frosting."

ON's PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ delivers fast-digesting whey protein that provides essential nutrients to help support muscle recovery after an intense workout. Each serving contains 30 grams of protein, 15.5 grams of naturally occurring essential amino acids and nearly nine grams of naturally occurring and added BCAA's, including leucine, isoleucine and valine. The powder is instantized to mix easily with a spoon and can be combined with water, milk or milk alternatives like soy or almond milk.

"By hydrolyzing whey protein isolates to break larger proteins down into smaller pieces, these ultra-pure whey isolates in our PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ get into your system rapidly, helping the muscles to start recovering from heavy training," said Heflin.

Red Velvet Cake joins six other PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ flavors, including: Turbo Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream Overdrive, Supercharged Strawberry and Velocity Vanilla.

Red Velvet Cake PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ is now available wherever ON products are sold, including sports retailers, gyms and online. For more information on PLATINUM HYDROWHEY™ Red Velvet Cake, please visit http://www.optimumnutrition.com.

About the company

We started Nuts ‘N More 4 years ago looking for other healthy alternatives of getting protein into our diets without having to eat another bar or drink another shake. We created the first high protein spreads to hit the mass market and with the help of our two partners, Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec we’re focused on doing it in a big way.

Most natural butters can be chunky and hard but our all natural, high protein spreads were created in a unique way giving you double the amount of protein with a smooth consistency and texture. Simple ‘n natural!

We’re quickly expanded from high protein peanut butters and almond butters to other nut based products like our Almond Infused Protein and our NEW Peanut Powder line.

The best choice for your health and your body.

With P28 High Protein Wraps, you’ll never get less than the best. Take charge of your health and fitness goals by choosing the foods that will get you there. Our wraps are formulated to provide you with 28 grams of protein and fiber-rich whole wheat to keep you energized all day long. Our unique blend of ingredients features whey protein isolate, the highest-quality source of protein you can buy.

Not all proteins are the same. At the apex of the pyramid is whey protein isolate (WPI), the primary protein source of P28. Made from whey protein that has been stripped of lactose, fat, and carbohydrates, WPI is the fastest-absorbing protein available. It consists of branched-chain amino acids, which are immediately used up by skeletal muscles during intense physical activity. They need to be replenished during and after exercise to optimize workouts and avoid fatigue. WPI also contains essential amino acids, making it a complete and superior protein for building muscles, losing weight, and getting healthy.


  • 28 grams of protein per wrap
  • Made with Whey Isolate - The highest quality source of protein
  • Made with Natural Ingredients
  • 100% Whole Wheat - Made with Oat, Flax Seed, Sunflower Seed, and Millet

About the company

P28 was developed by three brothers in the bakery business and their personal trainer/nutritionist. The three of us were overweight and out of shape. We wanted to lose weight and get back into shape quickly.

The first thing we did was join a local gym and hire a personal trainer. Our personal trainer sat us down before we started our workout program and explained that nutrition was just as important as working out. We started working out regularly and made some changes in our diets. After months in the gym, we were not seeing the results we expected.

We began formulating products with proper nutrition in mind. In 2008, after a year of development, we introduced P28. P28 is the first Original High Protein Bread on the market. We now offer this quality product to you as part of your family’s healthy lifestyle.

About the Company
Boundless Nutrition is a natural healthy food manufacturer and distributor based in Austin Texas. We are proud to be a family owned and operated business. We currently offer the Oatmega 3 Wellness bars and the Perfect FIT Protein Cookies.

Boundless Nutrition started as a small home grown business in Austin Texas. Trevor created the bars as part of a diet and exercise program for himself. As his diet plan started working well his friends and coworkers wanted to know his secret; aside from regular exercise, small frequent meals that contain high quality proteins, healthy fats and antioxidants were the key. Since it isn’t always easy to eat frequent meals, Trevor created a nutrition bar that had all of the essential aspects of a small healthy meal. He dubbed the bars the Oatmega 3 Wellness Bars after the omega 3 fatty acids and whole grain oats contained in the bars. Read More
