  • Product Overview

    What is Waxy Maize Starch (WMS)?

    Waxy maize starch is a complex, long-chain, high molecular weight carbohydrate that is free of sugar and lactose. Our Waxy Maize Starch has a high percentage of Amylopectin (95-99%) and a low percentage of Amylose (1-5%). Amylopectin molecules are larger, heavier and easier for the stomach to digest. Therefore, foods that have little Amylose and lots of Amylopectin are more rapidly digested and absorbed.

    What are the Benefits of Waxy Maize Starch (WMS)?

    Waxy maize starch has a much higher molecular weight than dextrose and maltodextrin, as a result it therefore passes through the stomach much faster, eliminating the risk of stomach discomfort. Not only this, but WMS acts like a pump, pulling the nutrients along with water into the body tissue at the correct speed and osmolality for your body to fully utilise. This means when consuming WMS there is no stomach cramping and no bloated feeling. Since WMS is absorbed so rapidly it can easily be consumed whenever a fast release of energy is required.

    Who is Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) Suitable for?

    Waxy maize starch is suitable for almost all individuals including vegetarians and vegans. Ideally, WMS is suitable for those who are physically active and want to increase their energy levels through the intake of complex carbohydrates.

    How to take WMS

    WMS is soluble in water, mixes best with a shaker but can also be shaken and consumed immediately. It has a neutral taste and is an excellent consumed on its own or when added to formulas such as protein shakes and pre workout drinks.

    Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Great for non carb athletes

Tried this for the first time and love its effectiveness. No need to carb up during my endurance bike rides. Just take the waxy maze 45 minutes before your ride and you’re good.
Goes Well With:
EAA and Beta Alaline

Waxy maize first impressions

Tried the product for my intra workout with my bcaa's. It mixed well, no clumps. No discernable flavor when mixed with an already flavored product which is nice. I felt like I got more out of my worout in terms of general endurance and pump. My only gripe is that the bag was not fully heat sealed when I received it, there was a small leak at the top of the bag.
Goes Well With:
Any intra or post workout drink

Nice and Simple

This stuff is great. Unflavoured, so just add it to your post workout shake with whatever protein, and it keeps that flavour. It's great for fast acting carbs, pre/post workout. As mentioned in another review, yes it is chalky and gets everywhere. Chalky isn't bad though, it just adds a bit of thickness. But I can't stress this enough, these happen with all Waxy Maize products, regardless of brand. It's just one of the properties of WM. So don't get annoyed when it's not as nice and neat as dextrose. Dextrose btw is much sweeter & like pure sugar.
Goes Well With:
Your usual protein powder/anything. It's unflavoured so goes with anything!

Stick to Maltodex

This stuff is like chalk, the powder gets everywhere and it tastes kind of strange. I have both Maltodextrin and WMS and the Malto is a lot better. Makes the shake taste better too. And it's cheaper for much more.


Amazing product for Postworkout, lean muscle gain if part of a clean diet. Mix product with fruit shakes.
Goes Well With:
Shakes, protein

It literally changed my life

This product along with Waxy Barley are the only carbs I can use. They are easy to digest, and don't make me feel bloated afterwards.
Goes Well With:
Soy Protein Isolate
