    I bought some creatine powder from ON. It's called Pre-load Creatine Complex. I'm a big fan of ON and use their protein. I assumed that their creatine would be just as good and effective. I bought the pre-load complex without looking at the nutrition facts since I trust them. I think that was a big mistake. I made my first serving a few weeks ago and when I drank it, it was so sugary that I almost couldn't bear it. I down the whole thing and then looked at the nutritional info after the fact. I took 2 scoops and turns out it has 63 grams of sugar... Is that too much or am I just being paranoid?

    I haven't use this one since. I've opted to use their flavorless creatine which has 0 sugar. I assume that the sugar is there because it for pre-workout. I've attached the nutrition info for you guys to critique. Thanks.

    The sugar, in the form of dextrose is to help the body absorb the creatine. I have plain creatine and add glucose to it when I drink.
