Product Description

Size: 5.5 lb

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.*

Energy without the caffeine jitters.
Joshua P. Graciano
So I highly recommend this product - great for pre and post work outs, It does not mix that well on its own - but mixes good with a scoop of protein powder.
Kristina Willey
I couldn't stomach it so I gave it away.

This product tastes terrible and leaves a "waxy" feeling your mouth. It's not enjoyable at all. I will continue to use Maltodextrin and Oat Powder as my cab source for soylent

And not the fructose that enlarges your liver and your waist, or chemical sweeteners. Waxy Maize is a natural mutation of corn that produces a starch made of a long chain of easily broken glucose molecules. More to the point, I put two scoops in 20 oz of water and sip on it when lifting weights. I find it keeps me focused, and keeps the acid and bile reflux at bay. Energy without the caffeine jitters. And a scoop with whey for recovery.

Does not blend with water- I have to keep shaking my bottle to keep the maize in suspension.

Mixes great and easy to make a quick shake to add carbs and 0 fat to your diet. Tastes like nothing so it can be added to anything.

I love the fact that it is non GMO. However, it tastes awful. You need to find something to mix it with. Even with that, the taste can be overpowering unless you have enough content to mix it with. I'd rather eat a bowl of oatmeal before a workout.
