    bulk CitMalate prob....


    i dont know whats up with my bulk cit malate ive got.

    ive heard and seen clumping from moisture while shipping or whatever with my other bulk supps ive received but this is just rediculous.

    the entier bucket is in a gooey mass and not just clumpy, its all sticky and hard to scoop out, i have to scrape at it or drop it on the floor to break off clumps then try to accuratley dose it with my 1/4 tsp.

    is this just common with citmalate or is this really bad moisture contammintation?

    ive ordered AEE/AAKG/CEE/Taurine/Powerfull/cissus/creamono all in bulk and never had this prob before.

    Yes, I had this happen with CM before...turned into a gooey yellow polymer. Still worked but it was a pain to sludge out and dissolve in water.

    Heh. I had di-creatine malate get clumpy. I have some citrulline-malate, too. Just checked and it is a semi-solid clump, too. Have you tried breaking it into smaller clumps with a fork and then mashing them in something like wax paper? I have a mallet with a smooth side (for my food) but I also have a mortar and pestle. I have found using a metal spoon and eyeballing it acceptable.

    It can attract some water, but a single dollop? Any way you can shoot me a pic for my own curiosity?

    Worst I have ever seen, I think, is Alpha-GPC. Trying to scoop that stuff up after it gets exposed to moisture (it was during that hurricane season back in 2004) was not pretty.

    The weird thing is I live in AZ with virtually no humidity, but mine turned into a blob of yellow gluey-solid.

    i had to scoop it out with a serving spoon and it retained the shape of the bucket perfectly!!!!!



    as for right after LITERALLY right after i snapped the shot it split in 2 between my fingers and went all over my lap and chair .... managed to get most of it put back in the bucket as its all clumpy but prob lost a good 2-3 servings that turned to powder i had to vaccum up.

    Sweet. At least we use the material that doesn't turn into a solid brick that cannot be broken.

    For the stuff in the chair, next time try snorting with a straw.

    All that just depends on how fast you use the product. I had mine for a month before using it... you know how well CM goes into liquid... it wouldnt even melt without a good work at it.

    Ya, I would imagine you can just shake the canister up real good and break some of that up a little better. It clearly separated out into a fairly fine powder when it fell into the chair.

    ya i didnt say it couldnt brake apart, just wondered about the fact that it was SO clumpy and sticky and if this was a normal aspect for this compound when exposed to a small amount of moisture.... others just get a lil clumpy and not sticky and fall right apart when prodded with a 1/4 tsp.... this one i have to press into the tsp with force as its a malleable mass..... some of it goes pretty powdery.... the rest is damn sticky...

    this just seems to be normal for cit malate.... no problem.
