Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function after highly intensive and/or long lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. * The beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4 g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.
Maltodextrin is suitable for anyone engaged in a long term physical training looking to increase their carbohydrate intake.

Maltodextrin works well as a complex carb source but a glucose form so is fast releasing making it great for post workout use, i like to use this to add to DIY gainer shakes with a mix of impact whey and casein as well as soy protein on occasion if i want to take a break from using dairy. I use this when i do not want to alter the taste of shakes or protein based meals, e.g. otherwise i normally use dextrose which has a much sweeter taste to it which is good if you desire sweet tasting things but if you would rather a tasteless fine carb powder then this is a good choice for you.

Cheap Carbs however if you have a IBD then do not take this as it's proven to put you into remission.Goes Well With:Anyone without Inflammatory bowel disease
Great Maltodextrin at a good price. I use this Maltodextrin with Impact Whey Protein to close a carbohydrate window after the training. And it turns out good and cheaper replacement for weight gainer. As Maltodextrin sickly sweet taste, mixing it with any flavor taste Impact Whey Protein turns normal taste. So I am 100% satisfied with what it gives me to save my money.Goes Well With:Water + Impact Whey Protein
I used this carb for making my own post-workout and sometimes use a little pre-workout for a small energy boost. This product mixes well and defiantly gives my that energy boost post workout that I need, even after LEG day. Not issues with mixing, a fine powder and very high density, not sure the full scoop provided with it gives you 30g, i think its a little more. Goes Well With:Protein/Fruit Smoothies
Been using this for a few weeks now. Take it post workout with whey. Mixes well. Definitely helps. Recommend 1&1/2 scoops. Would love if I came with a big scoop instead of having to measure out a half scoop. Goes Well With:Whey
It is best carb for lean mass gaining maltadextrin is for any one who want to put extra calories in their diet I take 50 gram maltadextrin with 2 scoop of impact whey after exercise and one 30 gram maltadextrin before exercise with my bcaa and creatine and I can see difference in my muscles best for lean gaining.Goes Well With:Imapct whey,bcaa and creatine with water
Great product I use only 27g and mix it with BCAA. I lift more than before and I get extra energy during my workout.Goes Well With:Bcaa
A1 Product does what it says on the tin very happy.
Great way to get my carbs in on my bulk without feeling bloated all the time. I use this post workout to replace muscle glycogen and in mass gainers, good to use in my juice at breakfast also. Only thing I wouldn't recommend is mixing with water as it tastes of toothpaste in my opinion but overall great product! Goes Well With:Breakfast juice
This product is great doesn't taste of anything when mixed with a drink. Don't be put off by the massive clumps that are first left in the water they dissappear after a few minutes Goes Well With:Any drink
Such a good product. I use it before or after the gym, before to give me some energy and after to get some carbs in. I also use it to top up my macros as it's very easy to digest and weigh out. If you're worried about taste with just water, I can't taste anything and even if you can, just mix it with literally anything.. milk, whey, juice. It literally mixes with anything.Goes Well With:Anything
This is perfect for me for my carbs to add to my protein shakes, it gives me my extra energy which i need for my bodybuilding and hard trainning,and reloading on carbs,its even tasteless, i will use this all the time from now now and the price for 5kg bag is really cheap and good.Goes Well With:Carbless protein shakes or weight gainners for extra energy
I found myself very satisfied with the product, it is effective and it tastes of nothing, which is what I usually look for in unflavoured powders. The only issue is that it does not mix very well, a little bit lumpy and leaves a bit of residue behind. Overall 8/10, great product.Goes Well With:Isotonic sports drinks, fruit juice, protein shake
No taste as such, I do seem to have more energy when I am taking it, my muscles seems to last longer
Does what is says, anyone doing HIT knows just how much it takes , absolute fail on every set, nutrition and rest is the key. There is no doubt in my mind taken 60 to 90 minutes after cooling down helps my recovery, energy levels and ability to recover and be fresh for the next session and that's important if you really need to focus and have that metal attitude of yes I can do this, one more rep, which you really can't if you are fatigued both physically and mentally.. Goes Well With:Anything, I mix with A2 milk, don't know about A2 milk ? Then read up about it, good old Mr Google
Great as an intra workout - 15g in my shaker helps to fuel my workout. Very cheap too. Can also be used a post-workout carbohydrate. I use in my intra shake along with BCAA and creatine. You can buy flavourless as it generally sweet tasting anyway.Goes Well With:Creatine & BCAA.
Bought maltodextrin to mix with my protein for post out shake and sometimes as a meal replacement and it's great mixes well,no extra taste which is great if you have a flavoured protein.defo buy again when I run out.Goes Well With:Protein Creatine
I drink it with unflavoured bcaa. It's terrible!! An advice for you if you want mix the both take bcaa with flavour !!! But the product is good
A very good carb supplement that I enjoy pre Intra and post workout! My only concerns are that there is a bitter after taste to the product also I have to shake extremely hard in order for it to mix properly. Other than those two things it has aided my workouts and recovery very well and for a great price! Love it keep it up!! Goes Well With:Whey protein Preworkout BCAAs
I've been using this product for the last 5 years and this is the third bag of 5KG Maltodextrin that I have purchased from MyProtein, and whilst it is the same consistency in the bag, (fine powder), it is much harder to dissolve or mix than the previous bags. Also, it ends up leaving a sort of froth in the shaker whereas the previous batch didn't. Having said that it is still tasteless which is good, and seems to be just as effective as the other bags. One thing I will say is that this bag does not have the big number 4 on it, don't know if that makes any difference.Goes Well With:I mix it with some flavoured squash just to take away the blandness.
