    Brief Overview

    Creatine monohydrate is normally consumed as a food supplement and is normally on an athlete’s shopping list. The main purpose of consuming it is to improve exercise performance and increase muscle strength. Creatine monohydrate enhances growth factor expression, satellite cell number, and intracellular water content. Hence, improve the strength quality and conditioning workout for intense training. In addition, it is also used to treat muscle disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and heart failure. Creatine monohydrate appears in white powder and is easily soluble in water. This product is commonly used in energy drinks, protein bars,  powders, milkshakes, and dry powdered drink mixes.

    Manufacturing Process

    The production started by reacting N-methylglycine, sodium N-methylglycinate and  S-methylisothiourea sulfate, with the ratio of 1:5 to 4:1, in mixture of water and ethanol under the temperature of 300C -1400C and pH from 7 to 13. The adjustment of pH of the reaction was done by using an inorganic acid, such as sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid.

    The separation process of the product was conducted and the separated product was washed with water and 95% ethanol. The final step was to dry vaccum the final product under the condition of below 400C and 20 milibar pressure to obtain the creatine-monohydrate. The final form of the product would be a crystal white powder.
