    i think this came out today

    https://www.consumerlab.com/reviews/review_creatine_BCAAs/creatine/

    "However, tests by ConsumerLab.com found quality problems with two creatine supplements and one branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplement. Several other creatine and BCAA supplements passed quality testing.

    Significant amounts of a degraded form of creatine (known as creatinine) were found in two creatine products, each of which provided relatively little, actual creatine. In fact, one contained more than twice as much contaminant as actual creatine. Among BCAA products tested, one was found to provide a slightly lower amount (86%) of isoleucine than claimed."
