Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate, that delivers fast-release carbohydrates. Although it has a high GI (120), this is negated by the other ingredients in Queal, keeping Queal’s overall GI below 70. Our Maltodextrin is created from cornstarch and is sourced from the EU. It, therefore, adheres to all strict regulations for health and safety, including those for Mycotoxins, heavy metals, 3-MCPD, Dioxins and PCBs, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, colourings, and pesticides. It also does not contain any GMOs.
In simple terms: It's a great source of fast carbs, but should be used in combination with slow carbs to give a nice overall balance of energy that will keep you going even-paced for around 4 hours.
