Complex carbohydrate powder
PhD Waxy-Vol contains pure barley powder and is derived from finest UK crop. Barley is recognised as a complex carbohydrate.
A carbohydrate is the most abundant natural organic compound that consists only of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, they occur naturally in a variety of foods. In simplistic terms and in food science, carbohydrates can be broken down into two forms (though in truth it is slightly more comprehensive than this) and these are: simple sugars and complex carbohydrates.
Complex carbohydrates is a term used to describe foods that are high in starch (cereal’s, breads, grains), whilst the term simple sugars is used to describe foods that are traditionally high in monosaccharides and disaccharides, which are smaller (lower molecular weight) and are found in sweets, fruits, fruit juices etc.
Traditionally, athletes will require the majority of their carbohydrate intake from complex carbohydrates (starches), except perhaps for a period of 1 hour after exercise when it may be preferential to use simple sugars, as they may be converted into glycogen quicker than starches.
