Identify Fake/Genuine Optimum Nutrition Platinum Tri-Celle Casein Supplement

Using any bodybuilding supplement will only be beneficial if it is genuine and authentic. You can find a plethora of muscle building protein supplements around you today. But it is hard to tell whether your protein supplement is genuine or fake. An authentic protein powder is manufactured from high quality ingredients to support muscle growth while a fake supplement is manufactured from denatured ingredients that will give you harmful effects on your body. In this post I am going to tell you how you can identify the genuine/fake ON Platinum Tri-Celle Casein from Optimum Nutrition. Don't buy this protein powder unless you read this post. It will clear all your doubts.

Tri-Celle means that the casein molecule is 3 times larger in this supplement as compared with the normal molecule. It forms a gel in the stomach which takes more than 6 hours to digest completely. The slow digesting property will prevent your muscles from going into catabolic state. You can take this protein supplement before going to bed and in between meals. Also you can stack it with other protein powders like whey gold standard, creatine or glutamine. However do not mix creatine and glutamine together.

Identify Fake/Genuine Optimum Nutrition Platinum Tri-Celle Casein Supplement

1. Check ON Logo : Check Optimum Nutrition logo with a 'TM' sign above it. The logo is white in color.

2. Check Authenticity Seal : You can find an authenticity seal around the tub's lid. This seal is silver in color and contains a hologram showing 'Authentic Optimum Nutrition Product'. Platinum Tri-Celle Casein without this seal may be fake.

3. MFG, Expiry Date & Lot Number : Always check manufacturing date and expiry date. An expired product is of no use because it can give you serious side effects. Also check the batch/lot number on the neck of the container.

4. Product Label : ON Platinum Tri-Celle Casein’s product label is printed with dark and vibrant colors with a shiny and smooth finish. You should check the label thoroughly, it should not look flimsy. It also lists 30g Whey Protein Isolates, 12.5g ECAAs and 200mg L-Theanine. You should check that this info is correct on your label.

5. Grammatical Errors : There is no room for grammatical errors on Optimum Nutrition’s product label. If you find any errors on the product label then it is fake.

7. Check Manufacturer’s Address : All ON products are mostly manufactured in the USA, so your Whey protein container should have the USA manufactures address. Check the back of the container. The address is mostly 975 Meridian Lake Dr. Aurora, IL 60504 (USA).

8. Scan The Bar Code : On the jar you will find a QR code and a bar code. Just scan these codes with your smartphone by using a QR code scanning app. It will show you product details. If the details come to be about ON Platinum Tri-Celle Casein then its genuine otherwise fake. When you scan the QR code then it will take you to Optimum Nutrition's website, while if you scan the bar code it will give you product details.

9. Buy From Authorized Resellers Only : You should buy ON Platinum Tri-Celle Casein directly from Optimum Nutrition if you live in USA. If you live outside of USA check the list of authorized resellers worldwide. The supplement bought from non authorized sellers have no guarantee of authenticity.

10. List of flavours : ON Platinum Tri-Celle Casein is currently available in only three flavours. These flavors are Chocolate Decadence, Vanilla Bliss and Strawberry Indulgence. The supplement comes only in 2.37 LBs tub which contains only 25 servings according to Optimum Nutrition's website.

Verify Lot/Batch Number With ON To Ensure Authenticity

You can verify your Platinum Tri-Celle Casein protein powder whether its genuine or fake from the following method.

  • Write a mail to ‘consumers@optimumnutrition.com’ including the LOT number of your product. Ask them to verify the lot number whether it is manufactured by them or not.
  • If you get a positive reply from Optimum Nutrition USA then your ON Platinum Tri-Celle powder is 100% genuine.
  • If your lot number doesn’t match with Optimum Nutrition’s product batch then your ON Platinum Tri-Celle is totally a fake one.
