>Health and Nutrition>Mix in Maltodextrin to Water?
Hi, I am trying to find a good source to buy pure maltodextrin so that I can mix it into water instead of buying sports drink. Does this even make sense? AND do you know of a good cheap source?

Table sugar works just as well.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Brewery store or online:
Natural foods stores. Cooking supply stores. Even some normal everyday mega-mart grocery stores.
There is only one acceptable pace...all out suicide...
...and today is a good day to die!
Glucose and maltodextrin impact the body differently - glucose requires more water to pass through the stomach/small intestine walls compared to a higher order carb.
Head over to energygelcentral.com and you can pick up raw ingredients for energy gels as well as two types of premix (caffeine vs no caffeine)
I bought one bag of each a couple of weeks ago but won't be using for another few weeks or else I'd write up a "trip report" on it.
I found malto in bulk here: http://mikesmixrecoverydrink.com/buy-products/#m
A local company, I met this guy at a race and he was willing to talk to me forever about nutrition. He has a cheap sports drink as well.
I buy malto from amazon by the pound
