Hi ,
I had just bought 1000 grams of Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL, and was
wondering should this be in hard clumps. If so that's fine , I was
thinking it was in more of a powder form.

    Tim,

    Yes, Creatine Ethyl Ester does commonly cake. There is nothing wrong
    from a nutritional standpoint concerning caking. In fact, pure powders
    cake. Impure powders are less likely to cake. Most retail manufacturers
    add impurities called excipients that can help prevent caking. Typically
    these excipients are called anticaking agents and are usually insoluble
    micronized powders like magnesium stearate, dicalcium phosphate or
    micronized silica. We don't sell these types of powders but we do have
    similar excipients that you can purchase for use as anticaking agents
    such as calcium carbonate.

    You can crush the clumps back into a free flowing powder and then by
    adding about 2% calcium carbonate you can have Creatine Ethyl Ester with
    an anticaking agent added that will help reduce the likelihood of
    caking. But should you not want to bother with any of this you can just
    ignore the caking and crush the clumps into a powder each time you want
    to measure your dose.

    Take care,
    Timothy McNulty
