Have you been drinking fake or real protein powder?

Ok, with all those fake supplements product swarming in China market, one might wonder if it’s safe to buy protein powder in China from local source or to get it from abroad. How can you tell if the supplements that you buy here are authentic or imitation? First of all, we are not talking about products like pre-workout supplements or thermogenic fat burner here. For pre-work supplements such as creatine and  NO, or fat burner, you might be able to tell if the product is real or not after ingesting it especially if you have experience with the product, but what about protein ? There is no way you can tell just by taking it because it does not give you immediate effect/result. You can’t really tell from the taste either because the fake taste almost like the real one, some of the sellers even mix them together and sell them. 

How about packaging? You can’t really know from the packaging either, if the fake product manufacturer is determined to make the non-legit product to look like real one, there could be just a little to almost no difference at all, at least not something that commoners could tell. Some might argue that poor container seal could indicate that the product is a fake but that is not true. Even authentic product like Optimum Nutrition Whey for decade has been well-known for their poor sealing system in some of the tub containers. The seal is poor enough that it does not stick completely to the bottle and sometimes small amount of powder might leak out during shipping process.  So seeing small trace of powder near the cap doesn’t prove that the product is not genuine, the fake producer could even do better job in terms of sealing process.

So how can you tell if the protein is real or not? The answer is there is no direct way of telling it unless the content is sent for examination.  That explain how important it is to purchase protein from reliable source in China. Buying protein at expensive price such as from store or gym doesn’t guarantee the quality either. On the contrary, there are some who purchase protein at high price and gotten non-genuine product instead, and that happens not because the seller is doing it on purpose to rip off their customer but it’s simply because they have no idea that the products on their shelves are fake.  They simply being trusted by certain party to sell the protein and split the profit with the supplier.
