View Full Version : maltodextrin

I'm thinking of ordering some maltodextrin for during and post workout nutrition.
Should I order some dextrose as well?
The carbs to protein should be about 2:1 right.
If I get dextrose how much should the dextrose to maltodextrin ratio be?
So if I make a 500ml solution to take during training how many grams of protein, maltodextrin and dextrose should I add?
Also should I down another 500ml solution within 30 mins after training?

I've found that there isn't enough of a difference for it to really matter.

Powerade contains maltodextrin and that's what I used to use. 3 scoops of fruit punch Powerade powder with 1 scoop of strawberry protein is about a 2.25:1 ratio. Used to put that (along with my 5g of creatine) in a 1.5L bottle and would start drinking it about 10 min before going to the gym, keep sipping throughout the workout, then down the rest of it when I was done.
