    Maltodextrin or Dextrose?

    Which one is better for energy/gaining weight/muscle?

    I only use it pre, during, and post workout, if that makes a difference.

    I eat oats throughout the day but Derek and many other intelligent people use a faster acting carb pre/post/during workout. Such as dex or malto, I was just wondering which would be BETTER. I currently use dextrose, but thats b/c its cheaper not necessarily better.

    Actually..... Derek uses Oats/Skim Milk + Whey... Check out his Year for Improvement Journal to start.. There are no real life benefits over taking dex/malto over a Complex Carb such as oatmeal..

    Dextrose and Maltodextrin are too close in composition to bother splitting hairs about them. Both are easily absorbed glucose. Personally I use Now Foods Carbo Gain 100% Maltodextrin powder to mix with my shake. Previously, I was using table sugar in my shake but all those heaps of sugar were disgustingly sweet. The maltodextrin in contrast is only mildly sweet and tastes great!

    I believe dextrose is slightly cheaper than malto. I bought my malto online for $10 bucks total with shipping for a 2 lb. tub. If you shop it online you find it for about that price. Try Now Foods they seem like a reliable company.

    Talking Dextrose

    Typically I use Dextrose pre-workout only on my cutting cycle. With a low carb diet I typically still allow sugar right at workout time, it slows down my weight loss a little bit but I'm ok with that because it helps with energy and lean gains. During my workout I just rely on my pre-workout supplement and don't take more dextrose during my intra-workout time, but post workout I will always take some to spike my insulin levels and to help me absorb my creatine and amino acids. (I do this regardless of bulking or cutting.) Hope this helps. -Josh

    Dextrose and Maltodextrin are for person that follow a diet(low carbs). I'm now on a diet and during my workout my energie level is low so I take thoose two products and it helps me finish my workout ! If you don't follow a diet you don't need this ..Cause you will have enough carbs !

    Dextrose would be my choice if I only had those two to choose from, but I'd opt for karbolyn over any source. I had good success with Chain'd Reaction which is basically modified potato starch, but when I switched to karbolyn I was able to decrease my servings by 20 grams and felt even better.
