Creatine and Moisture


I live in Louisiana, it's hot, it's moist. All year round.

My creatine looks like cottage cheese, is it any good? Does anyone else in the muggy south experiencet this?

I never really thought about it until recently but I recalled that creatinine, what creatine turns into when exposed to moisture, is worthless.

I mean, how am I supposed to avoid it, there's a humidity that's all year round? Any thoughts on what I can do or if the creatine's still okay?


You could put it in the freezer. That should keep it dry.


Buy it in caps.
