Pea starch is a major advancement in healthy, low-glycemic carbohydrates.
Unlike maltodextrin-based supplements—which can cause unnatural spikes in blood-sugar levels (and the crashes or bloating that typically follow)— Pea Starch is a source of clean, sustained energy perfectly suited to the physical demands of dedicated student athletes.
Pea starch eliminates the digestive discomfort caused by many carb formulas that use maltodextrin.
Peas are in the middle of the glycemic index, meaning they have balanced mix of fast- and slow-digesting carbs. That makes them a great option to keep you full of energy throughout a long practice, conditioning workouts, during a tournament, or leading up to a game.
Pea starch may have the following benefits for athletes:
- Improved endurance
- Reduced bloating
- No sugar high or sugar crash
- Short term and long lasting energy
