Btw, I’m not saying that if you like the stuff you should stop using it as a complex carb.
Only that it doesn’t make sense to me that this branched-chain complex starch is going to hydrolyze super-rapidly to glucose units, that it will deliver glucose to muscle as fast as glucose does, or that it can possibly be both low-or-moderate GI and simultaneously very fast delivery.[/quote]
I gotcha. Im just trying to make sense of it all. Im convinced though, that its lighter on my stomach. It definitly doesn’t cause gastric bloat at larger quantities as say maltodextrin or dextrose did. I also understand that all digestable carbohydrates get broken down by enzymes into glucose which is then absorbed by villi in the S.I, which dumps into the blood.
So if its leaving my gut, its going into my blood (which should raise my blood glucose, making it a higher G.I), i got that. However, it honestly “feels” like i didn’t have a big shake before the workout. I have that shake pre and post workout and am able to eat 45-60 minutes later. With another carb mix, I had a problem with bloating. Either way, thanks for your insight. I’d love to see some more detailed studies done on this.
