Maltodextrin is a high quality complex carbohydrate sourced from corn starch. Maltodextrin provides a great source of fast release energy.
Although Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate, it rates quite highly on the Glycemic index (GI) just below simple carbohydrates like Dextrose. Therefore maltodextrin provides a source of fast releasing energy that can help rapidly replensih glycogen stores during bouts of intense or prolonged exercise. Carbohydrates contribute to the maintenance of normal brain function. Maltodextrin is 94% carbohydrates.
Maltodextrin is suitable for anyone engaged in a long term physical training plan, whereby getting the right dietary balance is absolutely essential. The body requires the right kind of nutrients in order to perform and develop correctly, and whether these come from food or from supplements, they are needed for many purposes.

what can i say,an excellent source of quality carbs,a great addition to protein shakes throughout the day for extra calories.Best works for me half hour before workout with protein shake and another straight after,better workouts and feel fuller in my muscles,good stuff and works well.
very good product, cheap, mixes perfectly with protein and water, takes more time tho but it's fine. makes the shake thicker and a bit more sweet. and most importantly, noticeably boosts mass increase! would recommendGoes Well With:water, whey
I bought this along with some whey protein and dextrose. One scoop of each makes for an excellent weight gainer at a very effective price. Excellent for replenishing the glycogen stores and makes sure the protein is used for rebuilding rather than for energy. Before you go out and buy some expensive cyclone-esque weight gainer, try the combination I did. Will make your post workout shake a million times more effective. Thanks again, excellent product!Goes Well With:Whey protein, dextrose and water.

The best post-workout carb on the market at the best price. I'm quite carb sensitive so I just use 1 scoop (38g) along with one scoop (25g) of whey protein. Roughly 270 cals, 40g carb, 20g protein - take with creatine when cycling. This is all as a post-workout shake when bulking. I wish myprotein would make a simple Whey and Maltodextrin pre-mixed shake powder. Would make live easier and it'd be much cheaper than the Recovery XS.Goes Well With:I just have water.
Great sup! Clean carbs plus well needed energy. I would recommend this sup.
Great price and good product for after the gym to help replace energy levels

I found that taking maltodextrin 30 mins before a workout gives you enough energy for an intense cardio workout. Will defiantly purchase again. Highly recommend to a friend.
This is the first time I have bought separate ingredients and mixed them myself but since I started adding maltodextrin to my protein and creatine shake 12 days ago I have gained 3 lbs so am very pleased with this product so far! It mixes easily and doesn't affect the chocolate taste of my protein powder at all which is great! I would recommend this product to any gym goer trying to bulk up.Goes Well With:Creatine
I have not been disappointed with this product - it is unflavoured and mixed with your protein shake is perfect. It mixes easily and is very smooth. I would recommend this to anyone.
A great product at a real fantastic price. Use it along with protein for s great pre/post workout shake and on it's own on long bike rides.Goes Well With:Soy protein isolate
this product is amazing especially for the price this is possibly the cheapest price ive ever seen it at, the delivery and service of the maltodextrin was unbelievable and i bought 7.5kgs of the stuff it was that good.
This is my favourite carb "supplement". Amazing price for 5kg, will buy it again.
Wanted it for energy (Complex Carbs) and provides plenty virtually instant fast energy!Goes Well With:Creatine
This is my Second 5kg Bag - Excellent Stuff for Cycling Just requires 1 Scoop of this with 1/2 Scoop of Fructose, a pinch of sea salt or electrolyte and a bit of juice Why pay a fortune for the same as above (but with other crappy additives!) Mixes Great, tastes ok on its own! And Boy does it Work!Goes Well With:Fructose Sea Salt Electrolyte Fruit Juice
This stuff is great! For those long sessions down the gym, it really keeps my energy levels topped up, and keeps me performing. It has hardly no taste what so ever. Mixes really well with water, as it seems to just dissolve. Goes Well With:Water
It does what it is supposed to do... I use it before, during and after my crossfit workout to quickly replenish my energy... No flavour so it goes well with flavoured proteins, mixes really nice too. Would recommend for all high intensity sports.
Really good quality stuff...mixes great and best of all foes what its supposed to do...replenish glycogen and aid recovery...thanks myprotein :DGoes Well With:Creapure
Been mixing with cordial or juice pre workout and post workout with usn hyperbolic. Mixes great with no effort and no taste at all(unflavoured option). Seems to be giving me a little extra go in the gym and also putting on a little more weight. Great price, good results, will be buying again! Goes Well With:Usn hyperbolic, fruit juice
Great maltodextrin for endurance cycling drinks. Why pay over the odds work out the formula and mix it yourself! Don't give the multi national companies anymore than you have to. Myprotein great price delivery really quick efficient service notified every step of the way. Try it out.Goes Well With:Natural unsweetened juice which gives you the fructose.
This is the best Maltodextrin out there, it's easy to mix and doesn't taste bad either.
Maltodextrin is very easy to mix and has no taste whatsoever, I'm not noticing much of a difference through use though I've only been using it for 2 weeks.Goes Well With:Impact whey
After running out of Vitargo Pure I was shocked to see it has disappeared from Myprotine.com. I hope it will be back soon, so I was on the hunt for a replacement! I have been told that Maltodextrin is the next best thing. It mixes well and as I always mix it with Impact whey Isolate choc smooth the taste is nice and sweet. It is thinner than Vitargo when mixed with water but that makes little difference. I use it purely in my post workout shake, but i know you can take it during your workout as a boost.
I am endurance athlete and use this as fuel for long cycle rides and sportives - just mix with water and lemon juice and its a much cheaper alternative to high 5 etc. Mixability - I have purchased this for several years and sometimes its a fine powder and at other times is in small grains like caster sugar. The small grain are much easier to mix in water than the fine powder. The fine powder gets air bubbles trapped in it and is a real pain to mix - please make this more granular in future or affer two options
I take Maltodextrin just before and during a workout. It's a great little extra to have whilst training. I use it before training with nitric oxide which gives me a major boost. Then mix with EEA with a little blackcurrant. It mixes quite badly, but does not put me off using or rebuying it. I really recommend this product for anyone who wants a good boost without the worry of added calories.Goes Well With:EEA product
As far as slow release sugars go, Maltodextrin is a must. I can work out for 2 hours without too much loss in strength, it's not a miracle powder so you still have to work hard for your gains but it definitely helps.Goes Well With:Protein and Glutamine
Best product ever! Really cheap, perfect for gaining weight, tastes neutral, easy to mix and gives energy right when you need it
The Maltodextrin is a really good product and very cheap! Doesn't mix too well but you can't have everything!
Maltodextrin offers great results, it has no real taste (which is good), it mixes perfectly and it does its duty. Goes Well With:iBCAA
For me, this Maltodextrin product is like dextrose but lasts longer, it's better for endurance but it isn't good for all-day energy like oats. It mixes well and I can't taste it but it was cheap.Goes Well With:Pulse V4, Dextrose, creatine
I'm going to take this Maltodextrin before sleeping in a shake. In fact, it's a slow sugar. You may take something else better before or after training.
I am using maltodextrin to get an energy boost so it has to be able to do basically double my normal running mileage in preparation for a marathon. Although I have plenty of experience running marathons and ultras my preparation for this run, up to about 3 weeks ago, has been poor, and I now have less than 3 weeks to go. I have just turned 60 years young and maltodextrin helps me maintain energy levels enough to keep up an intensive training schedule.Goes Well With:Fruit juices, honey, and electrolyte powder. Mix to gel consistency or a lighter drink.
I really like the Maltodextrin powder, it is a great way to get energy and I really like it.
Recently been reviewing my recovery shakes and decided to create my own and blend 2 products together to create a product that i need. Blended with a Complete Whey Protein mix and works great. would recommend for those seeking to do the same. Goes Well With:Complete Whey Protein.
Maltodextrin works great and I can drink it on its own with water as it tasteless. Can be hard to mix but you get there in the end. Would recommend
I add this Maltodextrin to my usual protein shake and makes my shakes much thicker and sweeter. I recommend this for a good, post-workout, quick release carbohydrate fix.Goes Well With:Protein shake.
Maltodextrin dissolves easily and is almost tasteless - it's just very slightly sweet - so will go well when mixed into squash and just about any drink. There is now good evidence that around 400ml of 12.5% maltodextrin consumed 2-3 hours prior improves recovery following major surgery as well as in a sports context, so it's really a very multi-purpose product!Goes Well With:Almost anything
Maltodextrin mixes easily with little effect on taste when mixing with the shake, I haven't taken long enough to notice effectiveness.Goes Well With:Whey protein
Excellent supplement, use with protein to maximise its effectiveness
Maltodextrin is a great product, it's pure energy. It helps you get big, quick and immediate results.
I've been taking maltodextrin for a month now and I've noticed more energy at the gym and a quick boost when I need it. This is a great product to add quality carbs to your diet. I'm taking about 2 or 3 shakes per day, usually one for breakfast, one straight after a workout and one mid evening. Mixes ok, few lumps though.Goes Well With:No taste, so just about anything!
Maltodextrin is a great product at a great price, with prompt delivery from MyProtein.Goes Well With:Water, fruit juice and a pinch of salt
Maltodextrin is a great product at a great price, with prompt delivery from MyProtein.Goes Well With:Water, fruit juice and a pinch of salt
This stuff really is the Bees Knees for Cycling Energy/Endurance/Recovery when mixed with Fructose Mix 80G of this with 40g of Fructose with a gram of Electrolyte and a Pinch of Sea Salt and Fruit Juice for Flavour for a 750ml Water Bottle - Easy to mix just in the bottle so can take some with you for longer rides (Tastes fine even without the juice.) You can drink as much as you want during a really hard workout and it will not upset your stomach in any way and will propel you to levels you will not believe with full hydration and Nutrition needs! No need for any gells or any food! I Drink a 750 Bottle without the Electrolyte or Salt 1 hour before my ride with 200 g of Caffeine and top up my Caffeine with 30g chewed pill after each hour - Washed down with this stuff and drink a bottle an hour After the ride Drink another 750 Bottle with salt but without electrolyte for rapid recovery At the price it is an absolute steal You can get the Fructose and Electrolyte from these Guys as well of course.
A friend recommended maltodextrin to me as a good way to improve the effectiveness of my shakes. Since taking it I've noticed an increase in my performance and energy which has led to an increase in my overall size. A must have product for the priceGoes Well With:Impact whey protein, Hurricane XS, Fuse.
Maltodextrin provides me the energy needed for my training and helps me to sustain the daily amount of my carbohydrates.
Maltodextrin is a super great product for women like me who have problems trying to gain weight. It tastes like absolutely nothing and melts complete in any liquid. I mix it in my food too, like soups or even sauces. It really taste like nothing and does not thicken the food. I mix it with a generous amount of oats in every shake to add extra calories. It's so, so good!Goes Well With:Oats
Maltodextrin is a very good product for the training and diet programme I am currently following. It gives me a massive boost in carbs directly after intense training and helps restock my glycogen store ready for my next session.Goes Well With:Impact whey, creatine & casein
Maltodextrin is great if you need a quick boost of carbs before a workout or need to find extra carbs in your diet. Goes Well With:Impact Whey protein, Milk
Mixed with water or isotonic drinks, this Maltodextrin gives the extra energy boost required.
As a cyclist, the need for fast complex carbs is a must, Maltodextrin does the job excellently. I use one large scoop in a mixture of Pulse and an Electrolyte tablet. It mixes well with cold water (along with the above, but I haven't yet tried it on its own). This is an excellent source of complex carbs, if you need it in the body fast. For the price it's unbeatable.Goes Well With:Pulse
I just started using this Maltodextrin mixed with my post-workout shake. It adds some carbs to help muscle recovery, mixes great, tastes great and is great value for money.Goes Well With:Whey Protien and Creatine
Maltodextrin is a very good product which gives some energy during the training!
Maltodextrin is great as a pre-workout boost for energy. It's best to mix it up on its own before adding anything else to prevent lumps forming.Goes Well With:squash or whey and water/milk.
Maltodextrin is a top product and mixes with no problem. It has a good taste.Goes Well With:impact whey
I train early before work. I normally squeeze in some porridge and whey pre-workout, but needed something post-workout so a friend suggest this Maltodextrin. I mix two scoops with my post workout shake and it works a treat. It mixes well, adds some sweetness to the taste of the whey and gives me a quick meal. It's also cheap.Goes Well With:Whey.
After 3 hours of MMA this Maltodextrin with protein and some amino acids is great for recovery. I don't feel like a truck has hit me quite as much the next day at least.
I obviously bought Maltodextrin for the effects of the product versus the taste, but this actually tastes far less sickly than other maltodextrin I have tried. Also, it mixes far better (less clumpy and gloopy).
Previously, I purchased Maltodextrin and electrolytes and used it on its own to good effect. This time, I'm trying out my own blend of what is marketed by others as "2:1" and "4:1". I purchased maltodextrin, fructose and Impact whey isolate and made up my own 2:1 [malotdextrin:fructose] and 4:1 [carb:protein] mixes, with the addition of electrolytes to avoid cramp. The carb element of the 4:1 mix is 2:1 maltodextrin:fructose. The addition of the fructose sweetens the overall mix and is a lower GI than maltodextrin. The protein element in the 4:1 helps on long spins and can also be used for recovery. I opted for the unflavoured version of everything and it's very drinkable. I'm finding the 4:1 mix great for long spins and i'm not suffering as much as before afterwards, with not the same crash and burn as before! I'll definitely be restocking when I run out. These are great products!Goes Well With:Fructose Impact Whey Isolate Electrolytes
Maltodextrin makes protein taste great and it's very effective for recovery.
Maltodextrin is really mixable and the taste is nice, it is not too sweet and it is perfect as a breakfast mixed up with protein shake. I will buy it again.
I've been body building for nearly 17 years now. I've always prided myself on being one of the biggest blokes in the room who doesn't use any supplements. But I'm getting old now and have found myself struggling to train as I used to. So needed something to help get my energy flowing. I didn't want protein or creatine or supplements of that sort. I'm a strong believer that anything that helps you get big quick will in turn make you get small quicker when you stop using. This maltodextrin is fantastic. I only bought as I wanted a carb shake for energy pre training and it's super cheap. But it's great. I really can't complain. It mixes great. Has no taste. I mix 50g with 1pt of red top milk. Taste just like drinking normal milk. (Slightly thicker). I drink as I'm walking to gym. You can feel a surge of energy going through you before you've even managed to finish the shake. It's the same as strong caffeine but it's a long energy source rather than a caffeine induced quick power surge. And once again I'm managing 1 and half to 2 hr training sessions at full weight and rep size. It doesn't create abnormal strength or water retention or anything of similar effect. The body doesn't become susceptible and reliant towards having an increased level of this within the body to function properly (as it does with protein or creatine if you use for a few months) and if you stop using, the body won't eat at the muscle to source the extra amount of this required to perform at full potential. Put simply, this gives you extra endurance to train with. Exactly like having a heavy carb loaded meal before going. But without the bloated feeling. If you don't train, you don't drink one. But you don't need the extra endurance so the body wont search for it. All in all, it's exactly what I needed at a price much much cheaper than I expected. Going to order 10 kg now.
Maltodextrin is a great way to get more carbs in your diet. It's good for recovery.Goes Well With:whey
This product is probably the best valued fast acting carb on the web. I use it before every workout. It gives you that energy you need after a hard days work to fully focus on the gym session ahead. You can use in before during and after which is a bonus as it's hard to eat carbs after a workout for me. I recommend this product to anyone wanting to increase carb intake and also increase energy.
I use this Maltodextrin in my post workout shake and it's great at helping to replenish the Gloycogen stores of my muscles after a hard session. It can also be used in other shakes taken through the day to increase overall calories if required. It does sometime mix a little cloggy, but in all honesty it's most probably only when not given enough time to mix well. Goes Well With:Any whey protein
Mixes well with water with or without a scoop of whey, didn't enjoy the taste with water alone but when mixed with whey or juice you can't taste it so overall a really good product. Only been using it around a week so can't say for effectiveness yet.Goes Well With:Whey/Water
I use this after the gym and I feel it works really good for me. I always lick the taste off it and it is easy to use.
Maltodextrin deserves 5 stars all round. 100grams mixes without a blender, it makes whey taste nicer and is a brilliant way to get in higher carbs for your macros post workout.
I mix Maltodextrin with instant oats for a mixed release carb drink. This stuff is one step away from pure sugar, but is just about complex enough to be considered carbs. I keep it around for an instant boost, and to make sure my body isn't doing too much work splitting starches into sugars for brain juice. Your hand will get slightly sticky (like rubbing it with icing sugar) when getting it out of the bag, and the powder tastes slightly aspartane on the tongue, but it makes for a sweet shake (no chemical taste when mixed), it's great with a splash of vanilla for a watery warm Mcflurry! This mixes well and does the job.
Like the title says I just received this along with creapure in the post. I mixed about 350ml water, a bit of black currant juice with 50g of this with 5 grams of creapure. I did notice after shaking with my spring shaker bottle it didn't completely dissolve but shook it again and it pretty much completely dissolved from what I could see. I already did my workout and arrived home for the parcel to arrive just after so I took this after my protein shake to complete my recovery shakes then ate some stir fry chicken and egg whites. Now my body is feeling pretty good after quite a great workout. I'm very pumped now and not feeling any soreness or popping joints when moving like sometimes I do have after intense training. Not to say this is the almighty grail though but so far so good and it didn't really taste bad, it was completely bearable with the juice. I will be mixing this with my post protein shake and creapure all in one from now on so it shouldn't affect the taste of my lovely banana whey. Goes Well With:Creapure and whey
Maltodextrin is very sweet in taste and mixes well in water with whey protein for a recovery shake after a hard session in gym. Goes Well With:Any whey protein
Maltodextrin mixes and tastes fine, no complaints.Goes Well With:Powdered BCAA.
I have always been a great fan of this supplement I normal use it as a post workout booster to raise my insulin levels to aid my recovery normally mix with hydrolised whey proteinGoes Well With:goes well with everything from normal whey to hydrolised whey
Taking advantage of the nutrient window post-workout using malto and whey has always worked well for me. For such a cheap price you can't go wrong.Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein, Creatine Monohydrate, BCAAs
I have found this product excellent for improving my recovery from training sessions, and for replenishing energy levels after training. Goes Well With: 1 scoop Whey Protein
Maltodextrin great. My Protein products are the best and cheapestGoes Well With:Hard gainer
I recently purchased this for combining with MyProtein Whey Protein for after my crossfit workouts. The product mixes really well with a shaker ball using either milk or water. No difference in taste as I'm using the mint chocolate chip whey protein. Only been using for a few weeks and I'm noticing a difference already. This product is a must buy!Goes Well With:Any flavoured Whey protein
I switched to this after looking at the ingredients of one of the well known energy drinks - and guess what, its basically Maltodextrine salt and flavouring. With a little experimentation you can do the same, squash, pinch of rock salt, + recommended amount of maltodextrine powder into a 500ml cycling bottle fill half way with water shake to mix and top up with water. Saves a fortune and works for me! Goes Well With:Long cycle rides
This product is amazing. For long events like the ones I'm involved, it's almost the only thing I need. Fully recomendedGoes Well With:Electrolytes
My advice...shake like hell! it takes a while to mix but add 500ml water and some squash and it goes down a treat. Defiantly recommend.
"I recently purchased this to combine with my Creatine/Protein drinks during my intense Hypertrophy training. Mixed a couple of scoops with some impact whey with as much milk as required for my liking/taste. There's a strange taste involved in my lovely protein shake concoction now but I guess it's not a formal sit down meal so I just necked it. Job done, Important post workout carbs consumed! Good product for those who don't have the time to get a high carb food fix."
"This does not mix well at all. The first few times I mixed this I didnt really have any problems, I would normally have 25g in the morning with my Soy Protein, 25g before training and 50g after training. It just froffs about 200-300ml above my 200ml mix, and you have to wait sometime for it to settle, and have tried with both milk and water. Does help lessen aches after training and there is no taste to it at all but I would recommened mixing smaller scoops throughout the day for a better, smoother mix."
"oh its good stuff i believe that its better than vitargo because its give me scenes to feel pump in muscles , before i was using other product call vitago my mate advise me to use this its nice and cheap so its really work but make sure you are on right dose if you go on high dose you will get jelly belt around your belly enjoy the feel"
I found it easier than making two seperate shakes to simply add one heaped scoop of MP Impact Whey and then one scoop of Maltodextrin and it mixes perfectly and you can only taste the flavour of the whey protein so its ideal.
"very fine, homogeneous, tasteless powder. good !"
"Does the job! Don't really like it with water, but stick a bit of Robinson's Orange Squash in there and you'll never know the difference!"
"Im fussy with taste but i can drink with water, you could always add a bit of juice. This is no miracle energy boost but i do find effective plus you know your getting good quality carbs at great mp price, deffinately as good as some expensive energy drinks. On a monday i do an hour on weights and bike ( 10k) and 1 and a half hours badminton and this keeps me going .I use before during and after."
