    The best time to take maltodextrin is immediately post workout.

    It is a high GI carb which means it mimics sugar and spikes insulin. It is good for bulking but you should keep your intake in moderation.

    Great for adding quick extra calories for post workout.

    I like it, I mix a scoop of it with a scoop of protein powder for my shakes. Which I add some PB and half frozen banana to. The cool thing is it doesn't really do anything as far as taste, before using it I was thinking my shakes would taste super sugary.

    How well does your maltodextrin dissolve in water? My source is terrible, I have to wait thirty minutes before it's soluble.
