    warm water... yikes... not sure how that would taste haha

    With ours you have to shake it.... wait a minute or two and keep shaking it for it all to dissolve

    Probably best to shake it a couple times then let it sit for a minute or two. I've left 15 grams of bcaas mixed in a bottle of Gatorade overnight and the next morning there were no leucine floaties. Then I took my Gatorade, put it in my golf bag, and off I went!

    "Using very cold water can hinder solubility and cause foaming."

    Even when I use NutraPlanet bulk BCAA (not ultra-micronized) I use cool/room temperature water then place in refrigerator overnight - dissolved. I make mine up before bed and place in the fridge. In the morning take it with me on the way to the gym at 4:00AM. They're BCAA - they don't dissolve instantly or quickly - plan ahead if it is necessary.

    I know with a lot of stuff, if you let it sit in water too long it begins to break down and lose efficacy,,, is this not the case with BCAA's?

    I was going to pour it over ice if and when it dissolved... even with the foamy, chunky leucine, it was palatable,, my powdered arginine is much much worse, for taste at least,,

    Predigested branch chain amino acid sitting in cold water for 6 hours will break down...into? Serious question. I've yet to hear a seriously believable answer.

    If it breaks down molecularly it could turn into a completely different chemical,, take olive oil, for example, when over heated the molecular chain breaks apart and it turns into a completely different chemical that's carcinogenic ... this is just an example of what happens with olive oil... I have no idea if this could possibly happen with bcaa's

    On the flip side it could break down, but not molecularly, and absorb more readily

    You are introducing energy or a power to transform it's state or otherwise break it down molecularly. With the BCAA you are doing noting at all with it but immersing it in water and keeping it at a stable cold state. It is not breaking down molecularly. There is nothing more going on with it than what was going on with it in the container it sat in for months before your poured it in the water.

    That makes perfect sense,, the same as with any freeze dried substance, such as HCG,, definitely a valid question, but definitely a plausible answer as well
