Maltodextrin is a chain between 4 and 20 dextrose units in length making it only 3% fermentable by brewer's yeast. It is naturally present in finished beers, up to 6% by weight.
Our maltodextrin is composed of .5% dextrose, 2.5% Maltose, 3.5% maltoriose and 93.5% higher saccaharides. Since maltodextrins are easily digestible carbohydrates, some long range bicyclists mix maltodextrins with water as an energy source. Maltodextrin contains "glucose polymers", linked sugar compounds that are easy for the body to assimilate and use. Glucose polymers are metabolized as a slow, steady rate that can help to sustain energy levels during endurance-oriented workouts and/or athletic events and support weight gain. Contains virtually no protein, fat or fiber and is a convenient source of energy for active individuals.
* Suggested Use: Mix 1/2 cup of Carbo Gain in each 16 oz of water or juice. Consume before, during and after intense exercise for best results. Double this recipe if engaging in prolonged exertion of 2 hours or more.
