any one know about them?
This is what there site says.
AjiPure™ Instantized Branched-Chain Amino Acid
Athletes, runners and bodybuilders rely on branch chain amino acids for: Rapid recovery, Improved stamina, Muscle bulk
What Are IBCAAs? Ajinomoto is able to offer an industry breakthrough — a soluble amino acid branched-chain solution.
The branch chain amino acids are , isoleucine and valine. The Ajinomoto Instantized Branched-Chain Amino Acid ( ) formula is 2-parts leucine, 1-part isoleucine and 1-part valine.
Quicker dissolution, Faster availability, Proven consistency Unbeatable purity, Works Better Because It's Made Better
Ajipure IBCAA is the result of unique production technology that sets it apart from any competitive powder — allowing it to dissolve more quickly in water, and become available in the body more rapidly. Plus, as with all AjiPure amino acids, you can count on 100% non-animal- ingredients and 99-100% purity.
To faster, build , work out longer
How does it compare to other brands?

Well, it's Ajinomoto so it is quality. And it is instantized so I would assume you don't have to mix/shake it into solution.
Is it worth it over any other BCAA mix? No. It's really not going to make a difference versus any other similar product.

good company...expensive though. amino vital which i love is made by the same jap company. that whole purity thing...ultra pure...come'on! last i checked leucine is leucine! i could care less if it comes in crack cookies, its still pure!
10-29-2008, 11:27 PM
If it absorbs faster and is better great. Leucine is not leucine as far as quality. Its like saying apples are apples. Not all apples are granny smith. Some may be Georgia big red etc

Ajinomoto has a factory in Raleigh, they offered to let us tour the place one day. I kinda wanna do it, take pictures standing next to a vat of leucine or something.

Again I want to know the difference between there instant bcaa and non instant bcaa. If its faster. I want to add it to my peptopro and pslin.

I haven't heard of Ibcaa's, but BCAA's are single aa's, I don't think you can instantize them any further since they can't be broken down further, and are absorbed VERY rapidly. To me, this sounds like a marketing ploy but I would like to be proved wrong in the name of science.

In my humble opinion, the fact that Aji ibcaa's are instanized is alone worth getting, as regular bcaa's are hard as heck to mix.
Aside from ICE, is there any other bcaa products that use ajimonoto amino acids?
11-26-2008, 07:39 PM
Same with Purple Wraath, except the Arginine seems to take a lot longer to dissolve.
In my experience, amino acids dissolve quickly so I don't think it would be worth the expense. It would be cheaper to just begin taking your amino's toward the end of you workout if you are concerned about absorption.

Aji's IBCAA's are essentially the same traditional BCAA's, however they are milled several more times than normal in order to flow through higher mesh, This is not a problem with Leucine as it's typically higher mesh anyway than the other two aminos. Isoleucine is the amino that really needed the milling.
After all the milling they spray dry it with Lecithin.
It definitely mixes better, but this doesn't equate into additional physiological effects over regular BCAA's.
The reason some traditional BCAA's mix better than others is they come in varying degree of mesh sizes. The spray drying with lecithin adds to the solubility. Aji's aminos compared to other aminos are better quality, but only by about 1% from an analytical perspective. Although other BCAA's can be a little more hit or miss from a purity standpoint, but usually not by any substantial degree.
Regarding costs,IBCAA do cost more. And since most peoples complaints are the mixability, maybe they are worth the extra dough. It is cheaper to just mix an acidulant with traditional BCAA's such as a citric or malic acid based beverage and let it sit a couple hours.

Ajinomoto has been manufacturing pharmaceutical/medical grade amino’s for decades. They produce the purest amino acids in the world which taste considerably better than the generic Chinese type amino’s. (much easier to mix too)
Weve got the best price on Ajinomoto brand IBCAA’s on the net -

So Aji's ibcaa's can be suspended in Saline and used I.V.? Cool...Ajinomoto has been manufacturing pharmaceutical/medical grade amino’s for decades.
I'll try that when I get home. ;-)

To any renegade newbies, please realize I am joking about the I.V. method. Don't try it...So Aji's ibcaa's can be suspended in Saline and used I.V.? Cool...

Um...it would be cheaper than Xtend.
200g gives you 40 servings for 15 bucks
so Xtend is like 47 for 90 and IBCAA by Primeordial would be 80 servings for 30 and 45 bucks for 120 servings.
Only thing your missing out on is taste.

iBCAAs from you As for my earlier post, incase I didn't make it clear, I definitely see the advantage in the iBCAAs as you can tell by my purchase. I'll be adding it to my bcaa/eaa thread next week, although there are already some pictures up.

I heard no, seeing as there isn't enough demand over at Nutra and they already sell their own in house bulk..
which really sucks heh.. (not the nutra bulk- the fact they might not get this product)

official request thread It's not hard to add on to our order from PP. After seeing a few threads pop up about it, it might make sense to stock it.
Edit: After further reading the links you mentioned, it appears there is not as much to worry about as I initially guessed. The two articles mention Cysteine , which in a non-essential AA that is found in high concentrations in hair. However the BCAA's are found in lower quantities, as seen here. That doesn't disclude the possibility, just completing the picture.

Thanks I've crossed threads and responded here:
Premax vs. BCAA
Running both is $$$. I'll run each in turn and see which gives the best recovery.
IBAA and bromelain (sp?) is worth considering.
Prices iBCAA is 1/3 cheaper than Premax.
