What exactly is maltodextrin? I always thought it’s a simple sugar (combination of dextrose and glucose). Yesterday at BJ’s I saw a fiber supplement that provided 3g of soluble fiber and 3g of dietary fiber and the ingredients only list maltodextrin.
Also, does dietary fiber mean insoluble fiber? In some fiber products, if you add up the soluble fiber and the dietary fiber, it’s more than the total carbohydrate. I’m confused.
Different brands use different fiber sources - psyllum, maltodextrin, guar gum. Is one type better then the other or are they all equal? Thanks.
