I think most is not, but you can get a vegan version. They sell it on vegan essentials - http://www.veganessentials.com/catalog/ ... sports.htm

Don't forget to be awesome.

I think that animal sinew and such stopped being used as raw material from which to isolate creatine long ago. According to what I know, most of the creatine out there is synthetic. The question is what do they synthesise it from. It still might come from animals.

I have contacted MRM-USA about this to confirm ... and here is their reply ...

" All our BCAA powders are vegan and our reload’s (soluble BCAA’s for recovery) are vegan as well. We also just came out with a Vegan protein powder and Vegan greens that are so new, we’re still in the process of getting them up on our website. They are available at Iherb.com very soon. Our Driven preworkout is also considered vegan and we other in All natural version or with natural and artificial flavors.Also our Creatine Monohydrate and Glutamine are vegan, hplc tested and contain no fillers."

I have transitioned to using most of their products and they taste great ... the team over there is awesome too ... so it's a win-win ...

Here is their reply after i asked them if their powder is vegan :

Our Creatine Monohydrate powder is synthetically created. The Creatine Monohydrate in capsule form are in bovine/cow source capsules though.

By "them" do you mean Optimum Nutrition?
