ULTRA COMPETITION from SPONSER® is a complex nutrient solution, especially developed for ultra and long distance physical performances. Waxy maize starch and the starch hydrolysates from barley and corn ensure a long lasting energy availability with a characteristically low glycaemic index.
Waxy maize starch is a branched-chain glucose molecule with a very large molecular size. Compared to monosaccharides or disaccharides, in waxy maize starch 1000 or more molecules are present in branched form. The long-chained and complex structure of waxy maize starch is processed in the stomach very quickly, but on the other hand dismantled to glucose by enzymes only slowly and gradually. The insulin response of a drink mainly containing waxy maize starch is considerably lower compared to commercial carbohydrate mixes.
Free from gluten, lactose, isomaltulose as well as free from fructose – all nutrients which could be responsible for tolerance problems during ultra endurance activities.
Appropriate to support the physical performance during endurance exercise as well as for rehydration of the fluid losses after physical activities.
