This is one for those who encapsulated the Mesochem APIs themselves.
I've noticed that the sof is pretty lumpy and the lumps are hard to break down, not crumbly. The obvious answer is of course to put it through a sieve before encapsulating, but I don't remember the use of a sieve being mentioned in anybody's instructions.
So for those like me who started to encapsulate before realising that the api was all lumpy, my question is - does it matter? Will those lumps be digested just the same or will their absorbtion be hindered? The size of the lumps is what fits into a 00 capsule.
I note that the sof API is documented as not water soluble.
Mine was powder-no lumps. I don't know what to say about disolving. I can't see why it wouldn't.
Maybe just weigh 400 mg of "lumps", get a shot glass of warm water,
dump in the lumps, see what happens, then toss that bad boy down.
You can chase it with the led or dac.
Did your powder come lumpy or get lumpy?
My powder came lumpy directly on opening the foil pack. Interesting that yours was not lumpy.
I stored it in a dry place with silica gel sachets at 70C, so no way it got lumpy with me. It's not humid either where I am.
Yeah, I guess I just have to do some experiments. What's a few lumps to us pioneers, eh?
We have seen literally hundreds of packages of Mesochem API. It is perfectly ground and lump free.
Sofosbuvir is hygroscopic (absorbs water) but I have some Mesochem API that is in a post testing and sitting in zip lock bags in the original open foil package. It has been on my desk for weeks. No lumps.
Send us a small (1/8th of a capsule) sample and we will test it.
I have lumps aswell, I broke down the small parts...Still have some big lumps don't want to use them. In my new package (4 weeks) no lumps..It seems that the texture of the powder changes....My new package is much softer again, like clouds-powder. Huhmn and the other package of Dac also different, other taste...

Life - So your sof changed texture after time. I received this package in September but have just opened it now. Maybe, as you say, it gets more lumpy after a time. Anyway, we'll see what the testing shows.
