WHAT IS WAXY MAIZE STARCH?
BULK POWDERS™ Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) is one of the latest ‘sports carbohydrate’ to reach the market. It is a white powder with fair solubility and a neutral taste. Despite its fairly recent rise to fame, WMS is already used by professional athletes around the world, because… it works!
Waxy Maize is an extremely fast absorbing carbohydrate; faster than both dextrose and maltodextrin. This makes it the preferred option for after exercise when delivery of nutrients really matters.
Waxy Maize Starch has the lowest osmolality (the lower the osmolality of a starch, the faster it will be utilised) of any carbohydrate available on the market, meaning that it passes through the stomach and into the intestines (where energy uptake occurs) extremely quickly. It has actually been shown that WMS passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose!
Because of its low osmolality, Waxy Maize Starch is superior to other fast-acting carbohydrates such as dextrose because it can restore glycogen levels so much faster. Its low osmolality enables it to pass through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose and consequently restore muscle glycogen (muscle energy) 70% faster! Take WMS immediately after a workout/exercise with products like Whey Protein, Creatine or Amino Acids.
Waxy Maize Starch is only in the stomach for a very short period of time, so causes no stomach discomfort! As a result it can be taken pre, during and immediately post-workout without any problems! It does not draw precious water from the bodies reserves, in fact it can actually increase the bloodstream’s water content!
What’s more, BULK POWDERS™ Waxy Maize Starch is the lowest price in Europe.
