To me, it appears that what MaltMaker has linked to in the alibaba site is an extract of tannic acid from similar host plants as Brewtan B. It appears to be a spray-dried product as well. My guess is that it is chemically very similar to Brewtan B. The processing used to create the tannic acid extract appears to be different as Anjinmoto states their multi-step processing with decent detail whereas the alibaba only states solvent extracted. Anjinmoto also claims a high level of purity (i.e. lack of impurities), whereas the alibaba doesn't. Assuming they are as close as they seem, chances are that a person would not notice the difference in beer between these two products used in the same manner.
On that note, I would still prefer to buy Anjinmoto's Brewtan B product because this is something I will eventually consume into my body. If it was LED ropelights - alibaba FTW, but when it comes to stuff I'm unfamiliar with that I'll consume then I'll tread cautiously. Additionally, as long as you're willing to pay and wait, then US customers can get the bonafide product from Australia (and it sounds like it may hit US homebrewing markets this year at some point too).
