Wazy Maize Starch?
Just wondering if anyone else has tried ATW waxy maize starch and noticed the consistency to be very thick and almost gel like. I have tried supercarb and NP's waxy maize and both mixed very well, used about 20oz water with 1 scoop and still very thick, taste is very neutral. If anyone has tried please give me your feedback.

Its tru waxymaize made from amylopectin only. All other waxymaizE that doesn't have that consistency isn't truly waxymaize. Or it is but not like the vitargo. That's a good consistency however its a pain to mix

Thanks bro, makes sense, I'm just gonna mix it by itself and man up and get it down.

Just mixed up a scoop WM w/ 20 oz.
Yup, it's kinda thick. Like gravy, Reminds me of MHP Dark Matter.
Put couple scoops of AI Excell (amino acids) into it. Pretty good for a during workout drink.

I mixed with my Xtend post workout the added flavor helps alot, getting more used to it, also if I chug it down right away it doesn't thicken until about 20 seconds after mixing.

I've been doing as follows for post workout 1.5 scoops waxy maize, 1.5 scoops wpi, 0.5 scoops mpi, 1 scoop extend, followed by fruit.

See the whole thing behind the waxy is the molecular weight and fast absorbtion ect. Add wpi to it and is slows everything down. That's why just add bcaas and creatine that don't require digestion. And certainly don't have fruit after u have waxy becuae there is only 10 % conversion rate to glycogen which means if u have 20g sugar from fruit 2 will be used for glycogen the rest will goto the liver (but the waxy will replenich live and muscle) meaning the fructose will only be converted to fat for storage

I get the saem consistency, but either way, you just suck it up and get the stuff down. Great with a little WPI

I just recieved my order from ATW and the dry texture is that of maltodextrin and smells like brown rice. When mix it gels like pysillium hush fiber. So are you saying these are true characteristics of wms?
I can't see np, bulknutrition and ids all selling bunk wms...I've tried them all and they all had that starchy appeareace and taste. ATW is the only one that seems to be different.

Ok, went back and did some further research and it does seem that atw wms has the same gel like consistancy as vitargo (which is barley amylopectin).
IDS, NP, and Bulknutrition are using corn amylopectin, which is the reason their are differences in texture, taste and smell. Either way its all good, just as long as it does what is suppose to do.
