I finally "splurged" and bought 10lbs of Carbo Powder aka Maltodextrin. First of all, it came in a plastic bag and now all of my neighbors think I'm running coke out of my basement. Anyway, the most lacking part of my diet is the intake of enough quality carbs. From what I understand, malto is a complex carbohydrate that is mainly used in MRPs/Weightgainers. Complex carbs are good. My question is this: Is there any downside to consuming maltodextrin? Or can I be consuming this a few times a day? I know its the primary ingredient in NLarge and NLarge makes you fat if you abuse it, but isnt that because of the fructose, not the carbs? Somebody please explain.

Maltodextrin is a complex carb, but it is still a high GI carbohydrate. I think it is best used pre/post workout, and at other times during the day you can use low GI carbs such as oats, sweet potatoes, etc.

N'Large will cause fat gain, due to the sheer amount of calories. I doubt the fructose will become an issue unless you are consuming multiple servings per day, while at the same time consuming other fructose/sucrose containing foods.

I must first ROFL at that, haha omg. i had to leave the public computer lab when i read it.

Okay, now to answer.

As to what bradely said, malto is best consumed post workout, if your loking for quality carbs to eat during the day, look @ oatmeal, whole wheat bread, long grain balsamic rice, whole wheat pasta. veggies are also nice :)

Haha, thanks for the replies fellas. Yeah next time I purchase malto, i think i will order from supplement direct which packages in pails. I often get confused between high gi/low gi vs complex/simple carb. Since my goal is to create a consistent diet of 2800 calories per day, I'm always looking for shortcuts ;)

Its only like any other thing to clean.. get a vacum and suck it up.., now if it was on carpet, i can see it posing a BIG problem :)

Imagine if you had a dog or cat.. ran around lick up all that malto.. wow, they would die of a heart attack, or have so much energy that you will want to kill them :P
