TPW™ Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that is rapidly absorbed by the body to provide an immediate release of energy. TPW™ Maltodextrin has been carefully selected for its premium quality and is guaranteed to be 100% pure.
As a high GI carbohydrate, Maltodextrin is mainly used by athletes post workout to replenish muscle glycogen levels and kick-start and enhance the recovery process. Maltodextrin is ideal whenever a fast source of energy is required by the body as it can be quickly broken down and absorbed by the body.
Maltodextrin - A Fast Release Energy Source
As a high glycaemic index (GI) carbohydrate, Maltodextrin is mainly used by athletes post workout to replenish muscle glycogen levels and kick-start the recovery process. Although a complex carbohydrate, Maltodextrin is quickly digested and broken down into glucose and acts more like a simple sugar. This is why it has a high glycaemic index of 105 since it can have such a dramatic and beneficial effect on our blood sugar levels.
Maltodextrin - An Ideal Addition To Your Workout Shake
Maltodextrin is popularly used by endurance athletes to replenish muscle glycogen after strenuous exercise. Importantly, researchers have demonstrated that Maltodextrin can also be crucial for strength athletes or those looking for muscle gains. Research has suggested that consuming your normal protein shake with added Maltodextrin improves protein synthesis beyond that of just protein on its own. Protein synthesis is basically the process by which the body uses protein to help the muscles repair and regrow bigger. It is thought that this is to do with the spike in insulin levels - a hormone responsive to blood sugar levels that encourages the shuttle of nutrients into muscle cell - caused by Maltodextrin which in turn helps the protein and amino acids shuttle to the muscles to support muscle growth and repair.

Combining Maltodextrin with Dextrose
Latest consensus in sports nutrition suggests consuming a 50/50 blend (1:1 ratio) of Dextrose and Maltodextrin creates the perfect post workout shake. The differing absorption rates of Dextrose and Maltodextrin means your stomach can digest and process the two more efficiently than either on their own - optimizing glycogen replenishment, hydration and performance.
