I got the maltodextrin in a small brew shop and the woman behind the counter just looked at me blankly when I told her it was going into a post workout drink so she wasnt much help when I asked about nutrition facts, and I looked on the manufacturer’s website before but they dont have any nutrition info.
I have been using the gatorade power going by the scoop, not weight. One scoop should give me 20g of carbs, with almost 19 of it from sugars. I know it sounds like Im not using that much carb/sugar in this drink but Im only 155 lbs, and I think I have great glucose handling and I feel its plenty for my body to produce the insulin spike needed.
I was going to try 50/50 gatorade powder and maltodextrin, so Im going to guess I can do this:
The bag of maltodextrin is 8 ounces, but I dont have a scale to just weigh out 20g but
8 ounces = 226 grams
So if I divide the bag into 10 equal amounts, each one would have 22.6g of maltodextrin which would be perfect.
Does that make sense?
