Waxy maize starch is somewhat unique as a carbohydrate supplement. It is a long-chain carbohydrate, but is digested and absorbed very quickly due to its molecular structure. Waxy maize starch is a useful carbohydrate supplement for athletes and bodybuilders who need a carbohydrate source that is not derived from a sugar.
In fact, waxy maize starch is absorbed twice as quickly than any other carbohydrate source. This leads some sport and exercise specialists to believe it may be the best carbohydrate supplement available to date.
Waxy maize starch is (as the name suggests) a starch-based carb, and has a higher molecular weight to sugar based carbohydrates such as maltodextrin or dextrose. This means it passes more quickly through the digestive process and into the bloodstream for a fast and effective source of energy. This is particularly useful in a post-training carbohydrate supplement, when nutrients need to be shuttled quickly to cells.
If you prefer to avoid sugar-derived carbohydrates, or need a carbohydrate supplement which is proven to minimise the risk of digestive discomfort, try waxy maize starch. It passes through the stomach so quickly that bloating, water retention and stomach upsets are very rate, even in sensitive individuals who struggle with other carb supplements.
Waxy Maize Starch benefits
Fastest absorbed carbohydrate, non-sugar source, gentle on digestion, long-chain carbohydrate.
Waxy maize starch is a carbohydrate supplement which is not derived from sugar, and this makes it an excellent choice for anyone who has digestive or bloating issues when using maltodextrin or dextrose. Its unique molecular structure and molecular weight means it is absorbed quickly (twice as fast as any other carbohydrate), ideal for use as a post-training carbohydrate source to increase the delivery of protein, aminos and nutrients to muscle cells. A great choice for strength and power athletes, bodybuilders and anyone needing to optimise the use of smart carbohydrates for sports nutrition.
Waxy Maize Starch dosage and suggested use
As a dietary supplement, mix 40g with 250 ml of desired liquid. Alternatively, mix with other supplements (your protein shake, amino acids, creatine or BCAA drinks) to increase the absorption and uptake of those nutrients. 2 x flat 30ml scoops provide an estimated 40g serving. Scoop is included in package.
