Starch produced from grain containing the sugars maltose and dextrin.
A complex carbohydrate that is used in many ergogenic aids (sports drinks, carbohydrate gels, and energy bars) because it is easily digested.
a short chain of molecularly linked dextrose (glucose) molecules, and is manufactured by regulating the hydrolysis of starch
A long chain of glucose molecules (carbohydrates) that provides sustained energy without sharply increasing insulin levels. Essentially a chain of molecules of the simple sugar glucose linked together. There are an average of seven glucose molecules linked together to form a maltodextrin molecule.
An easily digestible blend of complex carbohydrates from corn starch. Maltodextrin contains "glucose polymers" which are linked sugar compounds that are easy for the body to assimilate and use.
a glucose polymer that exerts lesser osmotic effects compared with glucose; used in a variety of sports drinks as the source of carbohydrate.
A natural sugar from grain that helps consistency..
