White Powder Gold (WPG)

WPG is what everyone who buys Ormus seems to rave about and aspire to buying.
BUT... how do you know if it is real?

We have already covered how to test if wet-state Ormus is real or fake, and here is an easy way to establish if the powder form Ormus you have bought is genuine.

First, it needs to be clarified that what is often sold as Ormus Gold powder is in fact not made from gold. Most is made from Dead Sea Salt or a combination of salts. This typically sells on eBay in the UK for around £25(GBP) for 20 grams. Let's be clear, if this was made from gold it would cost at least £480 just to cover the cost of the gold without the cost of processing it. In reality, it would probably cost about £700 (GBP) for 20 grams. You cannot get 1 gram of gold Ormus powder unless you start with 1 gram of pure gold. The Ormus gold, sold in powder form is just the wet-state Ormus, dried to a powder, packaged up and creatively labelled, so please don't be fooled by any fancy titles.

Some unscrupulous sellers are, apparently, bulking up their Ormus powders with other powders to increase profits, and some are said to not be selling any Ormus at all. The typical bulking agents are flour, cornflour, icing sugar and chalk dust (talcum powder). None of these will do you any harm, but it is not what you have paid for. The quantities of the 'bulking agents' can run from 50% to 100% of the contents of your purchase, and there is no way you would ever know for sure.
...Until now.

AoAOP commissioned Chilectric Products in the UK to make some genuine Ormus powder from their wet-state substrate and come up with a test that any customer can easily do to establish product authenticity.

(Please be aware that this test may not work with all types of powder Ormus (e.g. it has not been tested with Ormus made from dolomite, azomite or pure gold) but it does work for all Ormus powders derived from salt, which is over 90% of the Ormus powder market).


Are you worried you may have been sold a fake product?

Here is a simple test you can do to check the authenticity of powder Ormus.

The 'powder' Ormus test

It's very straightforward and easy to do.


Click arrow for the authenticity test for wet-state Ormus


1. Take a small amount of Ormus powder and place it in a clear clean glass.

2. Add some filtered water and mix well. It will cloud up, but the powder will quickly fall to the bottom, leaving the smaller particles suspended in the water.

3. After about 10 minutes these particles will have mostly settled to the bottom and the water should be clearing.

It is important to ensure that the amount of powder has increased, not decreased. If it has decreased the chances are that your Ormus may have been 'bulked out' with icing sugar.

4. After about 20 minutes the water should be pretty clear and the powder should have virtually all settled to the bottom.

Make sure that at this point the amount settled out has increased further and that the swater is almost completely clear.


5. Now do the 'acid test,
adding roughly the same amount of acid as the original water

We have used citric acid, but clear distilled vinegar works just as well.

6. At this point bubbles will start rising from the Ormus and the powder will begin to dissolve back into the water

7. After about five minutes nearly all of the powder will have disappeared and the rising bubbles will have lessened in quantity.

8. After about 10-15 minutes all the powder should have dissolved and the water should be crystal clear.

If all of these stages have successfully completed, you will have established that your Ormus powder is, indeed, the genuine article.


Consumer law says that what you have purchased must be 100% what it claims to be in the sales literature and/or on the label. If it isn't - plain and simple - it's FAKE

If, having done this test the result is not 100% as illustrated above, your purchase is either 100% fake or it has been 'bulked out' - and therefore also a fake.

If you have been sold a fake Ormus product you need to do a few things.

One, demand your money back, or if you bought the item through eBay, Amazon or another public sales platform, let them know. They may be responsible to refund you if you have been duped by one of their clients.

*Next, tell us at AoAOP, and we will engage with the seller on your behalf and demand an explanation. Plus, if unsatisfactorily resolved we will publish the outcome on this website to alert others.
*Always carefully retain a sample of the product in question and if necessary pass it on to us for independent testing.
