In one of Poliquin’s “Question of Strength” articles, he said that maltodextrin could be cheaply bought at a wine making type store. I stopped in the local wine making store and the guy had no idea what I was talking about… They did have dextrose though, and it was like $3.50 for 4 lbs. I know that this is the carb used in Phosphagen HP, Celltech, and other over-priced creatine kool-aid drinks.
Does anyone know if dextrose is as effective as maltodextrin for a post workout shake??
