Maltodextrin is a fast and effective carbohydrate for serious sportspeople who need to manipulate carbohydrate intake to support athletic performance, muscle gain and body composition.
Maltodextrin is created from starches taken from rice, corn, potato or a combination of all three. It is a pure, natural and safe source of carbohydrate energy which has been used for decades, sometimes in combination with dextrose and often mixed into protein shakes, amino acid drinks or BCAA supplements. It is also a popular ingredients in mass gainers or weight gain meal replacement shakes, due to its caloric properties and ease of digestion.
Although maltodextrin is high on the GI (glycemic index) scale, it is considered a complex carbohydrate because it is manufactured from natural starches.
Taken post-workout as a fast carbohydrate supplement, maltodextrin creates a useful blood sugar spike which in turn helps carry protein, amino acids, nutrients and creatine in post-workout nutrition to the muscle cells. In this way, it not only provides a source of energy but assists with the uptake of nutrients in the anabolic post-workout window.
Combine maltodextrin with protein powder such as whey in a post-training shake to slow down the absorption of the carbohydrate, creating a sustained source of energy and nutrients whilst your body recovers and replenishes glycogen.
Maltodextrin can be combined with dextrose monohydrate for an excellent pre or post-training carbohydrate supplement and can also be added to your protein shake, amino acid drink or BCAA supplement. It is a flexible and adaptable carbohydrate supplement and represents a cost effective and reliable carbohydrate source for endurance athletes and intense gym trainers.

Maltodextrin dosage and suggested use
As a dietary supplement, mix 40g maltodextrin with 250ml of water or other liquid before, during and after intense exercise. Alternatively, mix it in with other supplements (amino acids, protein powders, BCAAs or creatine) to increase their level of absorption. 2 x flat 30ml scoops provide an estimated 40g serving.
