Battery Nutrition Maltodextrin can be used as an effective carbohydrate source for weight gain shakes, as the protein and fats help to reduce the glycemic response. Creating your own weight-gainer is the best and most cost-effective way of gaining weight. If you plan to do this then make sure Battery Maltodextrin is included.
Maltodextrin is a glucose polymer and while technically it is a complex carbohydrate, it also has a very high GI rating (110), which ensures the rapid release of energy. This makes it a good choice for after training or a workout, particularly in combination with Battery Whey Protein, Battery Creatine and Battery BCAA.
Maltodextrin is a sugar called a polysaccharide. It is manufactured from starch and gets its name due to its formation from Dextrose polymers of different lengths. Unlike Dextrose, it does not taste sweet.

+ High GI carbohydrate
+ Great source of energy
+ Rapidly replenishes glycogen stores
Maltodextrin is not naturally occurring, it is generally manufactured from rice, corn or potato starches. It is widely found in many ‘off the shelf’ weight gain formulations, meal replacements and protein powders. It is also used as a ‘filler’ in capsulated products due to its ease of use and fairly neutral taste.
The main benefit of Maltodextrin is its use as a weight-gain tool, hence why you will find it as one of the main ingredients in ‘off the shelf’ weight gain formulations. Although it is a high GI carbohydrate, the GI scale is only relevant to ingredients tested in isolation. When combined with other nutrients such as protein and fats, the GI of Maltodextrin reduces significantly, meaning that the insulin spike takes place over a longer period of time. In essence, the inclusion of Maltodextrin in weight gain formulas allows the important nutrients such as protein to be delivered to muscle cells gradually rather than all at once.
Creating your own weight-gainer is the best and most cost-effective way of gaining weight. If you plan to do this then make sure Battery Maltodextrin is included. It is a great source of calories, digests easily and mixes instantly.
The above mentioned facts make Battery Maltodextrin the ideal post-workout choice. We offer you the best price/quality ratio available.
