For post workout i always have whey protein with 23 grams of dextrose and 23 gram of maltodextrin.

And i just looked on the back of a sugarfree jello box and it has 24 carbs in the whole thing, and the ingredients says that it has modified food starch maltodextrin in it, so i was wondering if i could take this post workout to count as my maltodextrin??????????????

while it does contain malto, it doesnt contain it in the concentration that you woud find with regular maltodextrin. think about it, if it was pure malto the sugar content would be just as high as regular jello and your insulin would spike big time from it. that doesnt happen though, as something that is sugar free such as jello is used in many diabetic diets.
