Table of contents
Amylopectin (Potato Starch) by RawSeries is a food preparation based on pure amylopectin from the hydrolysis of potato starch.
Amylopectin is a polysaccharide (complex carbohydrate) that is part of the starch in cereals.
Amylopectin (Potato Starch) is suitable for vegans.
It has a high carbohydrate content:
- Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after high intensity or long duration physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and depletion of stored glycogen in skeletal muscles.
Amylopectin (Potato Starch) is a pure complex carbohydrate, with no additives, no sugars, and that combines with all other foods in your diet:
Want to know why? Pen and paper at the ready!
Amylopectin is a carbohydrate that's highly valued for its nutritional characteristics, as it shares the advantages of native starch from cereals and simple carbohydrates:
The potato amylopectin by HSN is an excellent source of carbohydrates for both sweet and savoury recipes.
Why? Because thanks to the highly controlled ingredient development, the release of sugars from starch hydrolysis is non-existent, in fact, the product has no sugar (0%).
This feature makes it a versatile option for use in sweet and savoury elaborate dishes.
It can also be used in shakes, as thanks to its high degree of polymerisation, it has no taste or sweetness, so it doesn't alter the natural taste of the shake, a feature that allows it to be used with proteins or amino acids (before, during and/or after training) without affecting the taste or increasing the sweetness.
You have endless possibilities with HSN RAW amylopectin (potato starch)!
If you know our brand products in depth, you will find a characteristic difference between our waxy maize amylopectin and potato amylopectin.
The former contains 97% carbohydrates, while the potato contains 80%. Is it less pure?
No! The differences lie in the measurement method used to establish the amount of carbohydrates it provides.
Potato amylopectin is measured by counting the percentage of natural moisture in the product, as even powders have a percentage of moisture in them.
The moisture content of amylopectins is relatively high, and because maize amylopectin determines its carbohydrate content in dry matter (without moisture), this virtual difference appears.
At HSN, we have a wide range of carbohydrates ideal for athletes, each with their own particular characteristics. Want to know what makes amylopectin unique?
And if you prefer Waxy Maize (Amylopectin from waxy corn), it's also available in HSN's RAW format.
Only a 100% complex carbohydrate will be without a degree of sweetness, such as starch.
potato amylopectin by HSN contains no added or naturally occurring sugars, They are pure complex carbohydrates, perfect for use as food in any type of diet.

One of the disadvantages of highly polymerised complex carbohydrates (such as native starch)is that they 'fatten up' the shake in which they are mixed, i.e. they increase its density significantly, making it heavier to drink, especially when used around training.
With amylopectin, you won't have this problem!
Thanks to its branched structure, lacking the amylose of native starch, it's possible to obtain smoothies with a light texture, easy to drink, even when using large quantities of product.
We recommend respecting the powder-to-water ratio to achieve the best possible result:
Mix 1 scoop (50 amylopectin = 40g of pure complex carbohydrates) in 300ml of water.
Potato amylopectin is gluten-free.
Thanks to the food source (potato), this product is 100% gluten-free and can therefore be used by coeliacs and people with gluten intolerances who do not have coeliac disease.
Amylopectin is a vegetable food preparation derived exclusively from potato, without the use of non-vegan ingredients or adjuvants during the development process.
Amylopectin (Potato Starch) is suitable for vegans.
You can take amylopectin however and whenever you want:
- As part of your meals.
- In shakes around training.
- In recipes.
Amylopectin powder has a neutral taste.
