I have now deviced an easy method on how to unmask the numerous tongkat ali scammers who sell root powder with a claim that it is extract of 1:50, 1:100, and 1:200 strength.
This does not require esoteric tests that measure active ingredients and run into thousands of US dollars at commercial labs.
We are now in the process of just testing the products of suspicious suppliers for cellulose content.
Obviously, root powder has a high content of cellulose, and extract of any strength does not.
Furthermore, in the case of white powders, we test for stearic acid  content.
Stearic acid is a fat that is not present at all in tongkat ali root.
Stay tuned for some revealing results. And possibly the involvement of some domestic trade government departments.
