SusCarb™ HBCD – Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin is one of the Plant-Based products from ZymeBase Inc., utilizing cutting-edge Green Biotechnology.
HBCD is a new type of maltodextrin produced from waxy corn starch by the cyclization reaction of a branching enzyme. HBCD has a high molecular weight and narrower molecular weight distribution than other maltodextrins.
SusCarb™ HBCD is highly beneficial for fitness and sports enthusiasts. It’s proposed to enhance endurance performance in elite athletes by maintaining relatively high blood glucose levels without the adverse effects of low-molecular-weight CHO.
SusCarb™ HBCD can be used as a: Pre-workout, Intra-workout and Post-workout supplement.
The solubility of SusCarb™ HBCD is up to 97% and has a narrow size distribution of high molecular weight, indicating its high purity and solubility.
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 comfortably. Its lower osmolality provides more opportunities to manipulate electrolytes or other solutes (flavouring components or other active ingredients) to supply more fluid and electrolytes.
It may improve performance with less fatigue and endurance in a specific volume and time.
Variety of applications, such as food additives for sports beverages or taste improvement
Spray Drying Aid
A spray drying aid for extracts of fruits and vegetables, and the powderization of fish oil, are proposed uses of SusCarb™.
