SusCarb® Dextrin - Sustainable Carbohydrate

SusCarb® Dextrin is widely used as a pre-, intra-, and post-workout supplement by general fitness enthusiasts and elite athletes for endurance performance.

SusCarb® Dextrin is a unique, highly branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD) from Zymebase Inc., utilizing cutting-edge green biotechnology.

SusCarb® Dextrin has a higher branching ratio and a narrower and more uniform molecular weight distribution than other HBCDs on the market but maintains the physio-biochemical attributes of HBCD, including high molecular weight, low osmolarity, and high solubility.

Apparent Characteristics

suscarb solubility
SusCarb® Dextrin
  • Highly soluble in water
  • Transparent
  • Colorless
  • Odorless

Hygroscopy and Stability

suscarb dextrin moisture content
  • Low moisture absorption ( <18% at 40°C, 75% humidity)
  • Highly stable

Molecular Weight Distribution and Purity

Compared to HBCD products on the market, SusCarb® has:

  • Narrower and more uniform molecular weight distribution
  • Almost no oligosaccharides
  • The average molecular weight is around 60, 000 ‒ 100, 000 Da

Branching Ratio

SusCarb® Dextrin has more α-1, 6-glycosidic bonds:

  • 11% higher than other commercially available HBCD products
  • 40% higher than maltodextrin

The higher branching percentage of α-1, 6-glycosidic bonds correlates with a slower release of glucose in vivo.

Enhancement in Exercise Performance

  • SusCarb® VS Glucose: Exercise Performance ↑ 121%


  • SusCarb® VS Maltodextrin: Exercise Performance ↑ 33%

Positive Impacts on key factors for Exercise Performance

  • Blood Glucose
  • Muscle Glycogen
  • Norepinephrine
  • Adrenocorticotropic Hormone
  • Glutathione Peroxidase

Lower Osmolarity, Faster Absorption​

  • With the same energy supplied by different carbohydrates, SusCarb® has the lowest osmolarity, allowing more space for formulating.


  • Isotonic beverages formulated with SusCarb® are able to replenish water, energy and electrolytes quickly and simultaneously.
