  • Potato Starch Carbohydrate

    Pre mix, post or as a supplement to a mid-day shake? I’ve read (briefly) a few threads on the TP website and a few other places and still a bit unclear as to where this product would best it in. Anyone care to comment? Also has anyone experience or had issue (gas wise) while using this stuff?

    Have not used it personally, though also very interested in the feedback of those who have.

    Couple thoughts i will offer:

    Its a high molecular weight source, much like waxy maize, i would therefore think that the primary applications would be pre-intra and post workout.

    Personally i would not use it in a mid-day shake as i would think you may be better off with a slower acting carb source like oats/fruit ect.

    Again have not used it and looking forward to more discussion.

        A couple of orders ago they were out of the swedish oat starch so I had them sub in the potato starch. Didn't notice any difference other than it didn't taste that good. Kind of like flour. The swedish oat taste better, to me.

          I've also found that its kind of hard to keep mixed in a shaker up. I've had to re-shake it each time I take a drink. It seems to seperate and sink to the bottom.

                V1...I use it post-workout with some other goodies. I typically mix about 20+ ounces with it and havent had any issues with it mixing..but, I dont sip it either. Its down the hatch.

                No noticeable gas issues (no more than normal) for me.

                  i dont know what kind of junk you got that sinks at the bottom. i use ELEMENT by SAN and the stuff is almost tasteless, once it s mixed looks almost as clear as water, and it s super easy on your stomach. i take two scoops with whe,BCAAs,glutamine, and creatine preworkout, and then another scoop postworkout mixed with more of the same stuff

                    Well maybe the mixing was me. I'll shake it up better and see what happens. As for where I got it, TP of course and so far, all their product have been great.
