    Does beta alanine powder have flavor??


    For my racquetball training I am taking 2 16 oz bottles of xtend, I drink a half of one on the way to my gym(3 scoops as recommended by someone here and I put 1 scoop of creatine in it) then I drink the rest of the bottle during my training and another 3 scoops in a bottle after my training.

    I was thinking about adding beta alanine to the bottle also but dont want it to taste nasty...right now the xtend tastes great and is not thick, tastes like a good powerade.

    Thanks
    Scott

    I break open my MST Carnage caps and put them in my drinks (RPG) all the time. Don't notice the taste at all. Now when I add Athlytes I can taste it but it is still fine.

    I haven't come across any but I prefer bulk powders I get to be unflavoured.

    at worst, beta-alanine might have a very slight bitter taste to it, but it's unflavored and if you mix it with something like xtend you most likely won't notice it

    Its very bitter, at least PP's. Of course I shovel it right into my mouth and then chase it with water so that could be why
