    Eat actual corn instead of maltodextrin & dextrose?

    I've been on a really big "natural foods" kick lately and want to stick with it. I've been drinking kefir (fermented milk beverage) instead of taking whey protein powder.

    However, I still need a carb source. I'm wondering what would be the best real food (or juice) to eat for my post workout meal/drink?

    I know that malto & dex come from corn. So....could I just eat corn and get the same result? My parents grow the stuff, so I have access to real, clean, organic corn - not the frozen or canned junk you get in the store.

    I'm wondering if corn would provide my body with the same insulin spike that malto & dex do.
    Anyone have any idea?

    Maltodextrin and dextrose are pure, refined carbohydrates. So, of course, the answer to your last quest is NO. What are your numbers/experience level? You may not necessarily NEED to have your insulin spiked in order to get optimum growth. Just my opinion... let the flames begin.
