CARBO-PRO (3.0 lbs) is a nonsweet (neutral flavor) glucose polymer, derived through a patented process that consists of D-glucose units linked primarly by alpha-1-4 bonds, having a Dextrose Equivalency of less than 16 (high molecular weight). It is a white free flowing powder prepared by hydrolysis of grains (corn/barley/rice). Its highly safe for direct human consumption.
medium to long chain glucose polymers
- provides a high load of immediate sustained energy (112 calories per ounce)
- mixes readily with water or any sports drink
- does not cause gastric distress
- perfect fuel for long distance events
Delivering Peak Performance
CARBO-PRO is the most efficient source of hydration and energy. It offers Power, Strength and Endurance Athletes an easy and effective way to achieve the highest levels of muscle glycogen and maintain that level before, during and after activity. It replenishes muscle glycogen and helps in reducing the use of muscle protein for fuel, sparing vital muscle tissue. It mixes easily in any fluid and its neutral (non-sweet) flavor becomes convenient for consumption with any sports drink or any fluid (water, juice, shake, etc.).
Allows you to determine carbohydrate intake and concentration based on intensity and duration of activity. Perfect for carbo-loading and replenishing muscle glycogen. Helps maintain hydration with LOADING because with each gram of stored muscle glycogen, the body also has to store 2.7 grams of water.
Caloric Concentration & Low Osmolality
The DE is <19, so has low osmolality of 200 to 330 in even up to 15% - 20% solution in water, which is lower than body fluid osmolality (280 - 300). Provides higher caloric density, as a HYPOTONIC SOLUTION, without exceeding osmotic balance and facilitates quick absorption without causing gastric distress. Easy to RE-LOAD and CARBO-LOAD as needed.
A Premium Fuel
Identity Preserved GMO Free
CARBO-PRO is a clinically tested complex carbohydrate: a Premium fuel formulated to provide simple, clean and efficient calories. It is derived through a patented process of hydrolysis of certified Identity-Preserved (IP) CORN which has NOT been genetically modified by bioengineering technology. In order to ensure that it is IP, purchasing is done through contracts with farmers to buy corn which has not been genetically modified by bioengineering technology.
Each lot is accompanied by proper IP documentation (signed certified of handling that the Corn was IP at all times, and a signed certificate of origin listing location, producer and seed corn brand). The corn is further tested by the ELISA procedure to screen for bioengineered genetic modifications. IP campaign is initiated by segregating approved product. Finished product is tested by PCR method by an independent laboratory to ensure integrity of the production run. Each identity-preserved lot can be recognized by "IP" following the lot number.
