Optimum Nutrition - Glyco-Maize - 4.4 lbs. (2000 g)
Whereas proteins help with muscle rebuilding, carbs refuel and replenish. Of the various types available, Waxy Maize Starch and Trehalose are two of the best. Waxy maize starches are long-chain, highly-branched, exceptionally-dense complex carbohydrates that are rapidly absorbed. Trehalose is a much smaller, slower-digesting molecule comprised of two unusually linked glucose sugars. Together, these carbohydrates provide immediate and intermediate energy, top-off glycogen stores, and aid with nutrient absorption. That's why they're the foundation of the GLYCOMAIZE formula. Unlike other high-carbohydrate formulas that you may have used in the past, GLYCOMAIZE is designed to be used often and in greater amounts. Added Carbogen enzymes help ensure fast, easy digestion without bloating or cramping. So, when you're ready to power-up your pre-, during- & post-workout drinks and shakes to meet the intensity of your sports, you're ready for GLYCOMAIZE.
Beyond the Basics:
- 35 grams of concentrated carbohydrates per scoop
- Packed with fast-acting, high-molecular weight Waxy Maize Starch
- Trehalose for intermediate energy
- Contains Carbogen digestive enzymes to enhance utilization
- Unflavored versatility: supercharge your protein, weight-gainer, creatine, and amino acid drinks with GLYCOMAIZE.

Optimum Nutrition was founded in 1986 by brothers Tony and Michael Costello. Originally known as Costello's Health Distributors, the entrepreneurial brothers soon recognized an opportunity in the need for significantly improved quality and innovative vision in the sports nutrition industry. The Optimum Nutrition brand was launched to satisfy both demands, and after 22 years of success reflected in great part by the ongoing best-selling status of ON Gold Standard 100% Whey, the Costello's entered into agreement to sell the company to the international cheese and nutritional ingredients group Glanbia.
