What is Pure Maltodextrin?
Reactiv Pure Maltodextrin is a premium quality easily digestible carbohydrate made from natural corn starch. It's highly concentrated, containing no fat or protein. No extra ingredients, flavours or fillers have been added - all that's in the formula is 100% pure Maltodextrin.
Maltodextrin's are made up of glucose polymers produced by the depolymerisation of corn starch. They are categorised by 'Dextrose Equivalence' (DE). DE is a measure of reducing power compared to a dextrose equivalent of 100. The higher the DE, the greater the extent of starch depolymerisation, resulting in a smaller average polymer size. Maltodextrins are defined by the FDA as products having a DE less than 20. Reactiv Pure Maltodextrin has a unique DE of 10.
You may have noticed that Maltodextrin is often the first ingredient used in off the shelf 'weight gainer' powders, and energy replacement drinks. Maltodextrin can be used as an easy to consume, clean calorie source when seeking to increase mass and gain weight. Maltodextrin's easy digestion means it's also a great source of energy for endurance sports and activities that require lots of physical exertion.
How To Use Pure Maltodextrin
Due to Maltodextrin being a highly concentrated form of carbohydrates it's the perfect tool for when you need to 'Carb Up' or 'Carb load'. Carbing up / Carb loading is the technique used by bodybuilders to achieve harder, more full and vascular muscles for a show, or when they are carbohydrate cycling. This is also the same process endurance athletes use to load muscles with carbohydrates in preparation for training or competition.
Reactiv Pure Maltodextrin has a neutral taste (it's not sweet like Dextrose) and mixes easily in water and shakes. Although technically a complex carbohydrate, the 'Glycemic Index' (GI) of Maltodextrin's in general should be considered high. This makes it an effective 'transporter' for Micronised Creatine, Pure Glutamine, Amino Acids, and Protein supplements.
Please note Maltodextrin's are not made from and do not contain Malt.
