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.
BULK POWDERS™ Maltodextrin is of the highest quality, providing 100% Maltodextrin. A quick glance at the Certificate of Analysis (COA) on this product page (to the side of the product image) reaffirms this.

WHO IS MALTODEXTRIN SUITABLE FOR?
BULK POWDERS™ Maltodextrin is commonly used in ‘do it yourself’ weight gainers alongside protein and fats. Maltodextrin is also suitable post-training to replenish fuel levels.
Mix 1.5 scoops (approximately 50g) with 100ml water in a BULK POWDERS™ Shaker Bottle.
For use in your own weight-gain formula we would suggest combining 50g Maltodextrin with 50g Pure Whey Protein™ and 10g Medium Chain Triglycerides.
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.
