Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate, consisting of glucose polymers (simple sugar) resulting from starch hydrolysis. This is a kind of enzymatic conversion which is possible with several starch types, such as maize, rice or potato starch. Despite being a polymer, this compound has a chemical bonds structure which can be broken down quite easily. Maltodextrin is easily and quickly digested, absorbed and metabolized, so it has a high glycemic index. The sharp insulin spike that this compound causes and the energy it provides, promote protein synthesis and increased muscle mass.
