    Default Question about maltodextrin

    I think this subject had come up on the board before, but I don't remember what the general concensus was (if there was any). Is maltodextrin good as part of a post workout shake, or should it be avoided ? Some of the protein shakes on the market contain it. Others make a point of advertising that they don't contain it. I'm thinking in terms of a post workout "recovery" drink, rather than something you'd drink as non-post workout nutrition, e.g. just protein powder. Thanks for all input in advance.

    Default Question about maltodextrin

    When I was doing BEAR, I used a whey protein+malto shake right after each session. I recovered extremely quickly. If your main goal is recovery and performance I'd give it a go.

    Default That's what I thought

    The eas myoplex "deluxe" version used to have malto in it, but the "new and improved version" doesn't. I liked it better before actually. I've been doing the myoplex lite lately, which has malto. Seems like a cheaper way might be to make a regular protein shake, and if you want some maltodextrin, you could add a couple tablespoons of ovaltine or something else that has some malto in it. It would give you just a little bit of sugar that way, as well.
