Just curious, but has anyone else on this board experienced an awful burning taste in their mouth/tongue when combining creatine and a substance containing large amounts of cirtic acid (like diet soda for example)?
If so, or even if not... anyone know why such a reaction occurs and what the signifigance is.
I load creatine differently than others. 5 grams per meal a day for a few days, then about 8 grams pre and post workout. The diet soda was a fluke (I dont drink it hardly at all). Another time I was eating some candy that is high in citric acid & artificial colors (another possible culprit).
Could also be the whey, though. I've experienced a similar pang when taken an Arginine supplement, so DP may actually be right (even a squirrel finds a nut every now and then).
