What is Maltodextrin?
Maltodextrin is made up of chains of dextrose molecules which are quickly broken down by the body to provide a quick energy source. Unlike dextrose, maltodextrin does not taste sweet making it a great choice to add to protein shakes and other supplements that have already been sweetened.
Maltodextrin has been used for many years by athletes and bodybuilders alike. It is used as both a high energy source and as a source of high quality calories when bulking. It works to shuttle vital nutrients to the working muscles, and recent studies have shown that when taken post-workout with a protein supplement, Maltodextrin can further enhance the recovery protein and increase protein synthesis.
What performance benefits does Maltodextrin provide?
As a fast release energy source, maltodextrin can directly improve performance by providing fuel to the working muscles. This makes it particularly beneficial to endurance athletes and sports performers that use multiple energy systems. It is commonly used in energy drinks.
