I have been the last few months. The main ingredient is sucrose followed by glucose. Would this be pretty effective for my simple sugar intake?

I thought the powdered stuff mainly consisted of dextrose. Or am I thinking of powerade? Surely you're the one who's wrong. It can't be me.

That's the point, dude...although it has more sucrose than dex. Still, perfectly useful. I use it when I'm bulking in-workout.

If I remember right, sucrose is like 1/2 glucose, 1/2 fructose, and fructose favors glycogen storage in the liver rather than muscle tissue. Glucose will go to muscle tissue though I believe. But, too many people use it PWO to be bad. I was using a pre-mixed dextrose/creatine powder PWO, but it's cheaper for me to buy mono powder and gatorade powder and mix it together.

ya i use some dextrose in my protein shake pwo...unfortunately it kinda takes away the coffee flavor in my cafe mocha elite whey, but it still is chocolatey lol

I will try gatorade if so many other people do.
But I usually have a banana and scoop of whey with some glut.

Gatorade is an awesome choice post workout. Before i got Torrent I would have some Xtend coupled with Gatorade. About 5 minutes after that i'd down some whey.

I found mine at a store that specializes in supplies for home brewing beer.

i like my gatorade mix ive got going, like i posted up there (gatorade powder, scoop of whey, 5mg creatine) but i never really know how much gatorade to put in.
i usually do two scoops of gatorade to one scoop whey (23-25g protein)

does that have enough carbs?

and i used dextrose instead isnt the recommended serving of dextrose 40g or something? seems like thatd be a lot of extra sweetener to add to whey
