Product Info

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 our Optimum Nutrition 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.

Quality carb source
Review by fit_guy (22 November 2014)
Training a lot every week i need a quality carb source to replenish glycogen and prevent muscle loss. The waxy maize is a perfect source (no sugar). Another great product from ON.

P.S. I use before and after my training.
value for money
Review by Larry (8 April 2014)
really good value for money when looking to add decent carbs to your post workout cocktail. the waxy maize powder ends up everywhere though
Review by Sky (9 March 2014)
I used to feel drained after morning workouts. Now after this product I have more energy to take on the day!
Absolutely stunning
Review by Edwin (15 May 2012)
I recently switched to this product due to similar pricing as my local brand.
I am super impressed, but that's what I should've expected from ON.
Stiffness after gym and jits are no longer as extreme.
I mix it with my bcaa and creatine powder after and before my workouts.
Decent results
Review by Trevor (26 March 2012)
mix this with some whey after training, seeing some good results so far :)
Very useful
Review by Dehsen (5 March 2012)
I use this supplement post workout or when my meals are lacking the right amount of carbs
Product is unflavoured so it doesn't kill the taste of you protein shakes
mixes easily with anything
Great product
Review by Christopher (another one) (24 June 2011)
Was given a tub of this to use in place of maltodextrin used in post-workout drinks before. Never going back. Find this to be easy to mix with protein & creatine. Best of all I did not feel bloated after using it like I did previously.
Agree with Richard
Review by Christopher  (2 February 2011)
It gives a great quick carb to add to your shakes, doesn't result in bloating or cramping. Only problem is it's a bit messy... especially when you try and dig for the scooper!
good post workout
Review by Larry (17 December 2010)
good source of those much needed post workout carbs if you're not into the maltodextrin/dextrose alternatives. Lasts pretty long when using 1 scoop post workout too. Good value for money from a solid brand like ON.
excellent value for money
Review by Richard  (11 October 2010)
versatile and can be mixed with almost anything
create your own intra and post workout drinks with this and save some cash
only prob is that it's quite messy
great for people looking to gain some decent weight
