Does not blend with water- I have to keep shaking my bottle to keep the maize in suspension.
There are many possible applications for waxy maize, including nutrition in nursing care environments. Most people are interested in using it as an energy source (see above citation) or as a probiotic (because it ferments in the large intestine and may promote healthful bacteria there). The real question for me is how similar it is to Super Starch, which is scary spendy ($60 for 750 grams). Comparing the chart in the above-referenced paper and the paper on Super Starch by Volek on the Generation UCAN site, they look identical. It would also be interesting to compare these starches to potato starch or resistant starch such as Bob’s Red Mill Unmodified Potato Starch. Some may be better as an energy source during exercise, some better for weight management, some better as a probiotic. Any ideas? Even better, any data?
I was very surprised because all the pure, unflavored proteins I take taste horrible with just water (so I mix them with milk and a banana and they taste passable).
Before receiving this, I read other reviews where people were talking about how the would "sip it at the gym". I thought to myself "Haha, that's never gonna happen for me, those people are crazy." But now that I've tasted it I can really see being able to do that, I added a spritz of one of those Mio sugar free water flavor-er things (strawberry) and actually enjoyed drinking it. Nice flavor, nice consistency, not too thick, and didn't make me nauseous.
Take immediately post-workout w/ bcaas and creatine. Then wait about 30 minutes to have your regular meal/shake (I use whey/casein/maltodextrin).
