Nutraplanet Creatine Texture?
Hi guys... Long time AM reader here, first time poster!
This is just a quick question about the texture of Nutraplanet's creatine monohydrate Black Series. Last week I ordered some CreaPure from the site, then got an email saying that there was an error and the product was not in stock, so to compensate, they would send a 100g tub of the NP brand free of charge. Anyways, I got the tub a few days ago, and I was shocked because the creatine has the strangest texture of any I have ever tried. I usually buy creapure brands like ON and Ultimate, which have a texture that I would liken to white sugar. A couple non-creapure brands I have tried had the same texture. The NP powder is a lot more like powdered sugar... very sticky and clumpy, a little bit like l-glutamine powder IMO. I also noticed that it mixes almost instantly with water, no grittiness what-so-ever. Is this normal?

i took this from a nother site that sells products so im not going to show the source (respect for np). I just checked my creatine advanced platinum series and its the same way. a powdery white substance.
When taking Creatine with your drink, you will notice youâ€™ll never get the full amounts of the amount you take as bits get left in the bottom. Micronized Creatine is now setting the standard for creatine supplementation by producing smaller particles, which are upto 20 times smaller than the regular creatine powder.
The benefits of Micronized Creatine;
Greater uptake into the bloodstream as theres 20 times more total surface area
Micronized creatine’s smaller particle size means quicker digestion and faster utilization.
Mixes Easier and Better
With a total of 20 times more surface area, means itâ€™s easier, faster and more complete when mixing your creatine supplement.
Micronized creatine offers 2000% more particle surface area for better utilization, better uptake, and faster results.

Thanks for the help guys...
The reason that I'm suspicious is that it doesn't say "micronized" on either the website description or the tub itself, and yet the powder is much more fine than any micronized creatine I've tried. I'm just hoping that they didn't screw up and and put the wrong supplement in the container, which would really suck because I'm loading 20g/day right now.
