View Full Version : Finding Dextrose in Australia? Or Can I Get Away With Oats for Insulin Spike PWO?

09-15-2005, 11:22 PM
Well, this question is two fold.

First up, this is my PWO shake:
2 Cups of Skinny Milk
3 Scoops Whey
1 Cup Grinded Instant Oats

630 Cals
22 Fat
81 Carbs
70 Protein.

Will this give the similar effects to using Dextrose PWO? Or should I be adding honey or something else high in carbs and easily absorbable?

Secondly, where do people get Dextrose in Australia? I've tried many places and no one has it. Unless I use Gatorade powder?

You can usually find dextrose in health food shops. Its sometimes sold as glucose powder. Alternativly, you could just buy brewing sugar or brew enhancer form woolworths or coles. Check the ingredients. Coopers brew enhancer 1 has nothing but dextrose and maltodextrin, and is only $4 per kg.
If you can't find either of those, Oats, while not ideal would proabaly be fine.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but I was really after something I could put in a shake, and since Dex is so cheap I went with that.

Cheers :)
