Buy 3 lbs. Get 1 lb. Free of Waxy Maize Starch @ TP
Some of you maybe interested in this:
Because the wait for the waxy maize starch has been so long, we are going to offer a special on it for the next 5 days ending on April 19th at 11:59pm. FOR EVERY 3 LBS OF WAXY MAIZE STARCH YOU PURCHASE, TRUE PROTEIN WILL GIVE YOU A 4TH LB FREE. To take advantage of this offer all you have to do is put in the keyword MAIZE in the discount code box in the check out of the site.

Now, does that mean you select 3 lbs and they'll automatically include a fourth pound with the code, or do you need to select 4 lbs and they'll deduct the $6.99 for that extra pound? I got bored and tried both ways, and aside from the ticket saying, "wazy maize discount", it doesn't appear to work. Next to the discount it says, "-0.00"..Which means nothing.
I got the same email, but maybe it's an oversight they'll fix tomorrow.

Hey Sleazy, I just bought the minimum three pounds to get the fourth free (I hope)..I'll let you know how it turns out when I get it on Wednesday. So far, the feedback over at intensemuscle has been super...

Good thread here
Looks like an awesome deal. 4 lbs of TP's waxy maize is $27.96 for the same stuff as 4 lbs Pure Vitargo $49.99 (BN). Looks like a no-brainer to a guy as poor as me. :hbang:

Quick description courtesy of Pure Vitargo (same as TP):
So what is Pure Vitargo?
Pure Vitargo® is a unique patented high molecular weight carbohydrate made from Swedish waxy maize starch. Pure Vitargo® is a long chain complex carbohydrate which acts far more favorably than dextrose & maltodextrin (the main ingredients in sports drinks today). Pure Vitargo® has a molecular weight that is about 100 times greater than maltodextrin and about 3000 times greater than dextrose. Due to its high molecular weight, Pure Vitargo® passes through the stomach very quickly. In doing so it acts like a pump, pulling water and nutrients along with it. In Fact, Pure Vitargo® moves through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose and maltodextrin. Dextrose also binds water from the body's reserves (small intestine, blood & muscles) and draws it into the stomach. This explains why so many dextrose users experience stomach discomfort or a bloated feeling. Pure Vitargo®, on the other hand, keeps you bloat-free and the muscles super-hydrated.
After using Pure Vitargo for over a year now, here is my take on the MAIN benefits of this ultimate carbohydrate formula:
Pure Vitargo reloads muscle glycogen 70% faster than any other carb drink on the market. This helps the muscles recover quicker and makes it an IDEAL post-workout carb drink.
Pure Vitargo passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose. With this rapid absorption, depleted muscles will receive vital glycogen in record time. Also, vital nutrients that are combined with Pure Vitargo are PULLED into the muscles 80% faster. What this means is that if you combine Pure Vitargo with creatine, glutamine, taurine, NO2 products, BCAA’s, or creatine ethyl esters, you’ll get almost DOUBLE the absorption! These nutrients can now bypass harsh stomach acids and are super-shuttled into your muscles. Adding Pure Vitargo to my cell volumizers makes them more efficient and I don’t have to take as much so I’m saving money in the long run. Talk about an ULTIMATE nutrient transporter!
Pure Vitargo acts like a pump and pulls nutrients and water into the muscles. This “pump effect” super-hydrates the muscles and helps them expand creating fuller, rounder and harder muscles. Add to this Pure Vitargo’s non-bloating properties makes it the IDEAL carb-loader for pre-contest bodybuilders! Why do you think 5 out of the top 10 Mr. Olympia competitors used Vitargo for the 2004 contest? Because it works like magic! (But due to sponsorships and contracts, they can’t admit it!). I noticed that when I load with Pure Vitargo for a contest my muscles are fuller, rounder and harder. With Pure Vitargo I also get that dry, crisp and grainy looking muscle that I’m always striving for.
Finally, I found that I could take Pure Vitargo while I was on my low carbohydrate diet and still rapidly lose bodyfat. The only difference is that now I had tons of energy and noticed that I was gaining muscle at the same time! Being that Pure Vitargo is sugar free makes it a very efficient carbohydrate formula for dieting and also when I’m trying to put on quality muscle mass.

Here's another description:
True Protein’s Waxy Maize Starch is derived from natural corn starch and is a food grade modified starch. It is very bland in flavor and has a white fluffy like consistency. We recommend using a shaker or a blender (this is best) to mix this product as it does not mix well. Immediate use is recommended as it has a tendency to clump. We have gone through great lengths testing and tweaking our Waxy Maize Starch to be palatable. We have found one that tastes fairly well and functionality wise it is top of the line.
So what’s so special with Waxy Maize in comparison to dextrose or maltodextrin? Many people have used a mix of dextrose and maltodextrin for post workout nutrition for years because it works and is vital for proper glycogen replenishment. Welcome to the new era of post workout nutrition… Waxy Maize Starch. WMS has a much higher molecular weight and a much lower osmolarity rate compared to dextrose or maltodextrin, so what does this mean… Mainly, WMS bypasses the stomach, is absorbed by the intestines and immediately is assimilated; this is all done at a much faster rate than dextrose or maltodextrin, almost double.
WMS can help the absorption rates of many of your favorite supplements like creatine monohydrate, creatine ethyl ester, cell volumization and nitric oxide type supplements, etc. Nutrients like this often times are left in the stomachs harsh acidic environment and degrade absorption rates. WMS helps shuttle these nutrients to bypass the stomach and allow the body to assimilate these nutrients at a much higher rate.
WMS has the ability to replenish the body’s glycogen stores much faster than a mix of maltodextrin or dextrose. This is accomplished again by WMS’s ability to bypass the stomach and go to the intestines for immediate absorption. WMS’s ability to shuttle all these nutrients and starch gives the body an immediate "pump" you can physically feel in your muscles post workout. You will see a much larger, fuller and rounder muscle belly.
Dextrose and maltodextrin can cause water retention and bloating, hence WMS’s popularity with pre contest and contest preparation carbohydrate replenishment. Many dieters choose WMS as their carb of choice as it is sugar free and an ideal source of a long chain complex carbohydrate.
We recommend starting with one 70 cc scoop post workout and see how your body responds.

Well, I tried it today and was very impressed. Decent pump 20 minutes after taking it. I didn't feel bloated like when I take in dextrose. Really good product. The texture is like some powdered sugar/flour, but the wms sticks to you, making it very hard to pour. I used a shaker cup and it mixed fine. I don't know what all the fuss is about. IMO it was harder to pour into the cup than it was to mix it. I'm in danger of loosing some every time I grab a scoop.
10-feeling rejuvinated (sp), good muscle pump
2- getting powder from container to the cup
n/a- for taste..It's neutral
My new postworkout mainstay. I usually feel very weak and somewhat sick coming home from a hardcore workout. This got me feeling 100% within I'd say 20 minutes.

Just to add..
I might've got a wicked bad case of DOAS..Delayed Onset of Ass-muscle Soreness from the wms. I was awesome until a few hours later when I all of a sudden had to drop off the kids at the pool...Bigtime emergency, the kind like when Finch had to go in American Pie. I'll save the rest of the details, and I hope this passes..Get it..Passes :D
On Friday I'll try a single scoop vs. 2 and see if that "stops" the problem.
