SusCarb™ sustainable carbohydrate is one of the Plant-Based products from ZymeBase Inc., utilizing cutting-edge Green Biotechnology. HBCD – Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin is considered a prime source of carbs compared to other types of GI carbs like maltodextrin and dextrose. SusCarb™ is a low glycemic HBCD with a high molecular weight and low osmolality. Due to its high solubility and less gastric emptying time, SusCarb™ can enhance performance in athletes without spiking insulin levels.
SusCarb™ HBCD can be used as a: Pre-workout, Intra-workout and Post-workout supplement.
Compared with carbohydrates (CHO) of the same concentration, SusCarb™ HBCD has lower osmotic pressure. As a sports drink ingredient, SusCarb™ HBCD could replenish more carbohydrates more easefully. Its lower osmolality provides more opportunities to manipulate electrolytes or other solutes (flavouring components or other active ingredients) to supply more fluid and electrolytes.
