Any checks to know the originality of a newly purchased gnc 100% whey protein?

I have recently purchased a GNC100% whey protein from local dealer. Now i am in doubt that it might turn out to be fake. So is there any guidelines from GNC that i can check for the originality of the product

Hi Sanjay, great that your pointed out this question. This is how I would check if the product is genuine:

  • First of all, don't blindly trust all the offline dealers
  • Check the brand's website for retailers/ online stores thru which they sell officially
  • Check the batch number & ask the brand directly about the authenticity. Some brands offer such functionality
  • Check the product label if it is printed correctly. Compare the image with the actual product image online
  • Check importer hologram or badge on the product if any
  • You can always get back to the brand or retailer regarding the authenticity on email or fb/ twitter, they'll probably respond.

However, I personally don't trust any xyz supplement store as the whole market is very unorganized & there is a risk of fake protein being sold.

Hope this helps man.
