Details

What is Maltodextrin?

BULK POWDERS Maltodextrin is premium European manufactured material. It is 100% pure and contains no additives or fillers.

Maltodextrin is a glucose polymer and while technically it is a complex carbohydrate, it also has a very high GI rating (110), which ensures the rapid release of energy. This makes it a good choice for after training or a workout, particularly in combination with Whey Protein, Creatine and Amino Acids.

Maltodextrin is a sugar called a polysaccharide. It is manufactured from starch and gets its name due to its formation from Dextrose polymers of different lengths. Unlike Dextrose, it does not taste sweet.

BULK POWDERS™ Maltodextrin can be used as an effective carbohydrate source for weight gain shakes, as the protein and fats help to reduce the glycemic response.

Where to find Maltodextrin:

Maltodextrin is not naturally occurring, it is generally manufactured from rice, corn or potato starches. It is widely found in many ‘off the shelf’ weight gain formulations, meal replacements and protein powders. It is also used as a ‘filler’ in capsulated products due to its ease of use and fairly neutral taste.

Maltodextrin can also be referred to as:

D-Maltodextrin, Maltodextrose, Glucose Polymers, Dextrose Polymers.

Why use Maltodextrin?

Although Maltodextrin is technically a complex carbohydrate, it still has a high Glycemic Index (GI) value. In essence this means that it is absorbed into the bloodstream quickly and creates an ‘Insulin Spike’. This insulin spike is useful for shuttling important nutrients such as Creatine, Amino Acids and Protein to the muscle cells where they can be utilised. Dextrose however has a higher GI value, meaning it is absorbed even faster, so to this extent is preferred over Maltodextrin as both a pre-exercise and post-exercise carbohydrate source. Nevertheless recent studies have suggested that a combination of Maltodextrin and Dextrose combined with a quality Whey Protein or Whey Protein Isolate, would be the ideal post-exercise beverage.

The main benefit of Maltodextrin is its use as a weight-gain tool, hence why you will find it as one of the main ingredients in ‘off the shelf’ weight gain formulations. Although it is a high GI carbohydrate, the GI scale is only relevant to ingredients tested in isolation. When combined with other nutrients such as protein and fats, the GI of Maltodextrin reduces significantly, meaning that the insulin spike takes place over a longer period of time. In essence, the inclusion of Maltodextrin in weight gain formulas allows the important nutrients such as protein to be delivered to muscle cells gradually rather than all at once.

Creating your own weight-gainer is the best and most cost-effective way of gaining weight. If you plan to do this then make sure BULK POWDERS™ Maltodextrin is included. It is a great source of calories, digests easily and mixes instantly.

Synergists

Due to its ability to create a quick insulin spike, Maltodextrin is very effective when combined with Creatine, Amino Acids (in particular Glutamine) and Whey Protein. It is now believed that a combination of Maltodextrin and Dextrose also makes the ideal post-exercise carbohydrate solution.

Another great product
Originally bought Maltodextrin from MP but found it congealed and didn't mix at all, a bit like drinking wafer with lumpy bits of icing sugar - yuck! I expected the same for Bulk Powders' Maltodextrin but how wrong was I. Not sure what you guys do but it mixes amazingly fast and no lumps at all! Nobody should have to settle for a lumpy shake and at this price I will not buy this product anywhere else. On 02/09/2013 Richard said...

A great and cheap way to get your carbs
In the past I had been spending obscene amounts of money on mass-gainers when I was trying to bulk up, until I decided to source all the ingredients myself individually. I started making shakes with a scoop of Bulkpowders' whey, maltodextrin and creatine, and consuming them post-workout. You need high GI carbs, along with protein, post workout to 'shuttle' the protein to your cells, and I found maltodextrin to be extremely helpful in both recovery and putting on lean muscle. Fantastic pricing also! On 14/06/2013 KS said...

I also recommend this 100%
I mixed 75gr of Maltodextrin with my egg protein shake right after my workout and in a half an hour I felt like I'd never been to the gym. Great product for energy refuel. On 04/03/2013 Tasos said...

I 100% reccomend this Product
This Product is amazing I take it 1 hour before a workout and I combine it with bulk powders own WPC 82℅. As far as taste goes it is tasteless, ideal for slightly thickening your shake for those of you who don't like really thin shakes and above all it gives you a great workout and the bonus is it's so cheap: 5kg for £12.29 AN ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE PRODUCT, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!

Great value, easy mixing.
No doubt the cheapest I've seen (unless you buy a 1000Kg of the stuff bagged on a pallet!). Mixes very easily, you can see it dissolving as soon as it is put into the liquid. Very little taste, of which is not unpleasant. Cheap and easy for extra calories in a protein shake. Recommended. On 11/04/2012 Lee Thompson said...
