Insulin response to Maltodextrin

I want to incorporate Malto carbs in my get big drinks, though I need to know if it stimulates insulin production like Dextrose or other fast acting carbs. I know Malto is a complex carb, but it is also fast acting so it leaves me a bit confused. I don't want to get fat as hell from all the insulin...
 
Some info...

BF,

Check this:

**broken link removed**

As far as glycemic index malto and dextrose are the same, BUT I don't know how this will differ (if at all) when mixed w/ protein etc. in a drink. Protein also enhances insulin release in repsponse to hyperglycemia. Fat (e.g. from flax) will reduce GI and likly reduce insulin response...

If you want to reduce the insulinogenic effect of your drinks, add some fiber - metamucil, psyllium husk, etc.

Thanks for the response! I'll add a few scoops of milled flax seeds to my drinks to reduce the insulin response.

BTW, still a little confused as to how malto is a complex carb when its so fast acting...
 
Malto

BF,

Its "fast-acting" b/c it elevates blood sugar quickly - this is the idea behind the glycemic index.

Maltodextrin is a "medium-length" complex carb, meaning that there are only several glucose (dextrose) strung together, rather than 10's or hundreds, to make the molecule. This means that the glucose can be hydrolyzed away very easily (small molecule, little cleaving to do) and the glucose is freed easily to enter the blood.

The length of the glucose chain is just 1 thing that will affect the GI. IN something like oatmeal, for instance, the carbs are within the fibrous structure of the oats, making the carb chains even less accessible for breakdown, lowering the GI.
