Creatine 1 year old, still good?

I have 2 bottles of creatine that were opened and are a year old, it looks the same as when it was new. Is it good to use, and even if it is good, will it have the same potency as a new bottle?

What’s the expiry date on the bottle?

Creatine absorbs a lot of moisture (and smells), so smelling it should be a good indication of whether it’s “gone bad”. Take a whiff, and check the consistency… If it’s all clumpy and smells like shit, you might want to buy a new one :wink:

Don’t chance it!

Stop what your doing and go throw that crap away and go directly to here:

Buy more than you can afford, don’t worry it’s better to have muscles than credit…

Hurry man… your muscles are counting on you.

Done.

It didn’t smell but was a little clumpy so I threw it out, plus the link you gave me is only $12.00 , rather not risk it.
