View Full Version : Substitute for dextrose/malto?

Is it essentially the same thing eating candy like Sweet Tarts or Smarties instead of ingesting pure dextrose/malto with your PWO shakes?

Check the ingredients. I think when I checked, it was all dextrose, but I wasnt serious about using the candy, just curious.

Smarties are pure dextrose, you can use it as a replacement.

You can drink any kind of carb PWO. It doesn't really matter. Just get the carbs in. I wouldn't make a habit of soda or something like that, but it'll work. I opt for the large shake at McDonald's. 200g of carbs and 25g of protein. I forget the fat grams. It's perfect. 1160 calories. MMMMMMMMMMM!
