Waxy Maize Starch - The Finest Quality

TPW™ Waxy Maize Starch is a high quality, fast-acting carbohydrate. Waxy Maize Starch is completely free of sugar and lactose, and instead made up of 100% amylopectin. It is widely known as the "king" of carbohydrates for its rapid digestion properties and neutral taste. Although it costs a little more than most other carbohydrates, it is the perfect carbohydrate for blending with other supplements.

 

Waxy Maize Starch - A Fast Acting Carbohydrate

The Protein Works™ Waxy Maize Starch is free from sugar and lactose, meaning it delivers everything you want and nothing you don't want! Waxy Maize Starch is a "fast" carbohydrate because of its high amylopectin component.  It is absorbed in the gut quickly which results in much greater glycogen storage. Hailed for its rapid digestion properties and clean neutral taste, this makes it the perfect carbohydrate source to mix with other supplements. Waxy maize starch differs from other carbohydrate sources such as Dextrose and Maltodextrin, in that you don't get that bloated feeling sometimes associated with these carbohydrates.

 

Waxy Maize Starch - Not Your Usual High GI Carbohydrate

Heralded as a breakthrough in post workout carbohydrates, Waxy Maize Starch is believed to be absorbed far quicker than traditionally used 'recovery' carbohydrates like Dextrose and Maltodextrin. This makes Waxy Maize Starch the preferred carbohydrate source for many athletes who need to replenish muscle glycogen levels as quickly as possible.

Lastly another benefit of waxy maize starch is that unlike other high GI carbohydrates that cause insulin levels to rise - which in turn can make your body more prone to storing fat. Research has suggested that Waxy Maize Starch doesn't spike blood sugar levels and insulin levels as much. This is why it's often the preferred choice of carbohydrate for athletes who want to keep body fat levels low but at the same time increase muscle mass.

Waxy Maize Starch as an Uptake Agent

As well as being used to replenish muscle glycogen stores and aid recovery, Waxy Maize Starch also serves as an 'uptake agent' for other key nutrients such as creatine. What this means is, because Waxy Maize Starch is rapidly absorbed, it can also help to transport other nutrients to the muscle. This can be of huge importance since many scientists believe that when nutrients such as creatine aren't carried with an 'uptake agent', their delivery to the muscles can be detrimentally affected.
