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.
