Today I cracked open my tub of Leucine that I ordered from Nutra about 2 weeks ago and the look, consistency, and taste are very different than the Leucine I am accustomed to (From CNW). The new tub looks and feels grainular, like sand, as compared to the "old" container which was light and flakey and everescent. The new tu also has a more sour and pungent (sp) flavor as the old tub was almost tasteless or slightly stale taste.
I just wanted to know if there is a reason for the variations and if it is normal or if something got mixed up with the Leucine agian?

I have never known Leucine to taste sour or pungent. Apparently the new Leucine does not have the same micronized mesh size that we had gotten before, which is why they are sandier. The mistake has been corrected for next order, when we will be going back to the super fine mesh.Evolutionary Muse - Inspire to Evolve

I actually like the 'sandier' versions as they mix better and the powder does not float to the top nor get all over the place.

Just to chime in. . . . I have only had the super duper ultra micronized version, and I would have much preferred a larger granule version. It got everywhere and didn't mix the greatest. Went through the whole container though

shakti did you try mixing it with crystal lite? takes that cheesy/jerky taste right out of it Give it time to disolve it takes a few minutes.

actually not crystal light since i dont get it here but i tried mixing it with a pineapple flavoured drink, did not mix at all just kept floating on the top...and no the taste is not cheesy/jerky like at all its jut plain disgusting..lol
i think i am gonna get these capped i have 3 kilos of leucine so there will be a ton of caps, i just need to find caps that can hold about a gram if this the ones i have are more like 500mg size so i dont like the idea of taking 10 caps just to get my 5 gram.
