Vegan & Vegetarian

NOW® Waxy Maize is a complex starch derived from Non-GMO corn that is naturally high in amylopectin, a high molecular weight, highly branched polysaccharide. Unlike typical corn starch products, which contain an average of 70-75% amylopectin, NOW® Waxy Maize typically contains 90% amylopectin. Amylopectin is slowly absorbed by the body, and then easily assimilated by muscle tissue, where it is converted into glycogen. Glycogen can then provide a sustained source of glucose for energy. Unlike maltodextrin or dextrose, Waxy Maize supports glycogen resynthesis well after you are finished working out and sustains energy levels throughout the day.*

Excellent product,again just ad to your favorite protein powder to have a delicious shake. I was able to keep lean mass,without fat and my energy level was high.Provides a clean bulk,much better than Malto or Dextrose who are packed with sugar. But Waxy Maize is fantastic.

I don't know if I'm just weird or what, but I love the taste of this stuff. Yeah it is super chalky and is a little strange in a shake, but I love it. Personally, if this powder had no effect on my body and had no carbs, I'd still love adding it to my shakes. Anyways, I used to take dextrose instead and i absolutely loved the taste of my shakes with dextrose, probably because it was all sugar. But I was feeling a little bloated and was also worried about how much sugar I was consuming. So I switched to Waxymaize. I love the switch. Lot's of people say it's overpriced... but compare it to all the other **** you buy and it's no big deal.

This stuff adds a chalky taste to your protein drink if you're just mixing it with protein powder. It tastes like it never really FULLY mixes with the liquid, as it will eventually settle out to the bottom. BOTTOM LINE: it's cheap for the size and it gets the job done, but if you are keen on taste there are better options available. Waxy Bolic is excellent alternative.

People please do some research before purchasing any waxy maize product. There is no research that exists that says this product is any more effective than a slice of white bread and in reality all of its hype can be attributed to a mistake between this product and another carb source called vitrago. Dextrose is a much better alternative for renewing glycogen stores and it also Costs half as much. Don't believe me? Take five minutes and look it up yourself. The worst that can happen is you save $20+

This stuff is excellent. I have noticed much faster recovery times when I use this as part of my post workout blend. It tastes horrible but I mix it in with my shake and it just leaves a chalky-like residue, which is tolerable. For the price and quality you cant beat this.

For my fast acting carb boost this is my go-to guy right here. Cheap price and good amount per container for 40g of carbs. Plus there backed by the non-GMO cert which is always nice to see. It gives a chalky flower taste to my protein shakes but nothing bad at all and absolutely no sugar or gluten! 100% for these guys.

I have been taking this supplement since January from a giant bag. I love it. I have gone from 177lbs to 196lbs. It tastes like flour but what do you expect? If you are familiar with supplements you don't necessarily care about the taste anyways you just chug it. Great post workout supplement. I have noticed excellent results.

This is my preferred source of carbs post-workout. It's great for a few reasons... 1. It is very fast absorbing, but it is a complex carb. I feel that I get the best of both worlds with this as it gets into my muscles quickly and effectively, but it won't spike my insulin as much as a straight dextrose would. 2. It is non-GMO (the only non-gmo waxy maize that I've found in fact). This is huge, because almost all of the corn grown in the US is GMO based. 3. It's decently priced. It has a pretty large amount of servings and is relatively inexpensive (not as cheap as dextrose, but most dextrose is going to be GMO based anyway). Great product in my opinion. Doesn't taste like much, but adds a little bit of a powdery consistency to my shake. If mixed with chocolate I find it makes it taste almost like Count Chocula cereal (reliving my childhood here).
