Mojo Rising said:Does anyone know where you could order some dextrose or that maltodextrose? Im looking for a HI GI sugar im guessing the malto is higher?!
Aren't most complex carbs low on GI? I was just at a web site that stated maltodextrin was low GI (general, not specific info).JAG said:Maltodextrin is a glucose polymer. A glucose polymer's molecular profile optimises the long-term energy providing properties of complex carbohydrates, without the need to consume bulky starch-rich foods. It is the simplest form of sugar. It is produced by partial hydrolysis of starch by a typical total enzyme process using a bacterial alpha-amylase followed by refining and spray-drying to a moisture level of 3% to 5%. Maltodextrin is a mixture of glucose, maltose, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides.
