What is maltodextrin?
Maltodextrin is a flavorless carbohydrate made from starch. It is essentially chains of glucose molecules. Glucose is a type of sugar that is easy for your body to burn, and in fact, virtually the only fuel used by your brain. This means that maltodextrin is very easy for your body and brain to use as well.
Why is maltodextrin used in Runner’s Clean Carbs?
Your body needs carbohydrates to function, they are like the fuel in the gas tank of your car – without it, you’re toast. For most people, the body will burn carbs until they are no longer available and then switch to burning fat. This can cause a lag in energy, which is uncomfortable to say the least (ever heard of ‘hitting the wall’?). Eating carbohydrates earlier on in a long run will allow your body to start burning fat earlier, making that transition from burning carbs to burning fat much less painful.
Because maltodextrin is a chain of easily-digested glucose molecules, it will result in a slightly slower release of energy compared to if you were to simply eat a spoonful of straight glucose.
What does maltodextrin do for your run?
Maltodextrin provides you with a steady release of energy so your body can begin to break down fat to use as fuel. This essentially helps you avoid ‘bonking’ or ‘hitting the wall’ during your long run. In short… running energy.
The maltodextrin in Runner’s Clean Carbs is flavorless, making it a good choice to mix with any beverage before you exercise or run.
