Dextrose vs. Maltodextrin

I’ve read that they both are great for your post-workout shake but, which is better for post-workout consumption? All help is much appreciated

I just posted a quote from JB on the thread entitled “The Hybrid Approach to Maximum Muscularity: Version 2.0.” It answers your question in an in-depth fashion. Check it out.

Just read that. Thanks bro!

Eric is there a specific ratio on how I should combine malto. and dex.? Such as 2:1, 3:1, 1:1, etc.? Thanx

I’m not aware of any studies that examined exact ratios. It seems, however, that the majority should be maltodextrin; I generally go 2:1 malto: dextrose. Again, I’m just shooting from the hip on this one.

I’m pretty sure Surge was formulated with a 1:1 ratio of malto to dextrose, or was it dextrose to malto? Oh man, hope I didn’t confuse you;-)
