    This is the same as Virtargo, right?
    I see Milos Sarcev heavily backing this in his workout drinks. I have a couple of questions about this.

    Milos says this is substitutable for dextrose or maltodextrin etc. Is wazy maize starch a high GI substance?

    Not really sure on this one so if anyone has good references I’d appreiciate them.

    My guess is WMS has a GI between 70-80. The combo of dextrose and maltodextrin is more like 110.

    The advantage of WMS is due to it’s high molecular weight and the effect of that on absorption through the principles of osmosis.

    Yes, and that it shifts proteins to the muscle faster than the Dex & MaltoDex’ mix ever can. So who cares about the GI, if muscles are fed quicker. DA
    OOH – Plus the lack of the bloating effect, a big plus.

    Hey guys,

    Was wondering if anyone could help me regarding the amylopectin content of the WMS @ myopure? Some brands are >99%; was wondering how the WMS here compares>

    Always good to have Dave Barr to be the nerd.
