Table of contents
Evopectin (Amylopectin Potato) by SportSeries is a food preparation based on complex carbohydrates, in the form of amylopectin, derived from potato.
Amylopectin is a part of the starch naturally present in cereals and tubers. In this product, the potato starch has been modified to extract its pure amylopectin fraction, without generating sugars during the treatment process.
Evopectin (Amylopectin Potato) is suitable for use in vegan diets.
Evopectin (Amylopectin Potato) is an ideal food for athletes looking to increase their intake of pure carbohydrates, without sugar, in a simple, delicious way, and with impeccable digestion qualities.
Don't know what to use amylopectin potato for? We'll tell you everything you need to know!
Carbohydrates are the energy nutrient par excellence most commonly used when we perform high intensity and/or long duration physical exercise.
As such, they're incredibly important nutrients for athletes, especially as post-workout nutrients, although their nutritional relevance is sometimes underestimated.
Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after intense and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to fatigue and depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.1
Evopectin (Amylopectin Potato) is a great ally in your volume phases thanks to its good digestibility.
When weight room users and fitness enthusiasts enter a volume phase, they increase their protein intake, such as with Evowhey 2.0, as it's a nutrient that contributes to muscle mass gain.
But they also increase their carbohydrate intake to boost their daily calorie intake. This poses a problem: satiety.
Evopectin potato is an excellent option for increasing the amount of carbohydrates consumed, as it digests easily and quickly, avoiding heavy digestion, meaning it can be easily used with any regular meal.
At HSN, we want to offer you all possible options so that you can choose, with all the information at your fingertips, which product you want to use as part of your daily diet.
Did you know that Evopectin 2.0 (Amylopectin Corn) is available as an alternative?
Evopectin potato is a pure source of complex carbohydrates (modified starch - potato amylopectin), in its nutritional table you can find the carbohydrate value of the product, which is around 80%.
If you compare the nutritional information with Evopectin 2.0 corn you will notice a significant difference in the amount of carbohydrates contained in both products (97% vs. 80% approximately), why if both are amylopectin?
In fact, the amount of carbohydrates in both products is identical, but Evopectin 2.0 maize is measured on a dry basis, i.e. the moisture content of the amylopectin has been removed, whereas in Evopectin potato the carbohydrates have been determined on the product with moisture.
Moisture is part of the powder and removing it standardises the measurement, avoiding variability, but reflects a higher carbohydrate content.
The carbohydrate content of potato Evopectin measured in dry matter is identical to that of Evopectin 2.0 (maize starch).
Thanks to the process we use to modify the potato starch to obtain the purest version of its amylopectin, the gelatinisation of the product is much lower.
Although other forms of complex carbohydrates increase the density of smoothies, Evopectin minimally impacts this property, allowing it to be used in light, easy-to-drink smoothies.
Other less technologically developed amylopectins taste like raw starch, but not potato Evopectin.
The purification of amylopectin from the potato and the development of flavours with HSN's own formulas mean you can use the product without feeling like you're eating a modified starch.
A light density, refreshing taste, and no grainy texture.
Evopectin (Amylopectin Potato) is a favourite carbohydrate of athletes.
As well as its organoleptic characteristics (smell-texture-flavour), its nutritional properties are unrivalled.
Athletes who supplement their diets with carbohydrate powders are tired of using sugar-laden formulas and products. With Evopectin, you can say goodbye to that.
It is 100% complex amylopectin, containing no sugars in its composition thanks to the high polymerisation treatment of its raw material.
An excellent way to get complex carbohydrates into your diet without digestive heaviness.
Amylopectin Potato is a vegan carbohydrate, and our flavoured formulas maintain this status.
Thanks to its potato origin, Evopectin (Amylopectin Potato) is a gluten-free carbohydrate.
An ideal alternative to other sources for people with coeliac disease who wish to use a concentrated source of carbohydrates suitable for their condition.
Mix one dispenser of product with 300ml of water.
You can use as much potato Evopectin as you require to meet your nutritional requirements. It's perfect as a post-workout carbohydrate.

1 The beneficial effect is achieved through the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4 grams per kilogram of body weight, in doses, within the first 4 hours and no later than 6 hours, following high intensity and/or long duration physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.
