So I purchased this and I am just mind blown and completely confused...
Ok... so 100% pure Maltodextrin, cool. Malto as far as I know is a simple Carb, correct? Easy and quick absorption. So, why does the label read "100% Complex Carbohydrate" ?NOW Carbo Gain is a 100% pure, an easily digestible complex carbohydrate derived from corn. Maltodextrin contains glucose polymers , linked sugar compounds that are easier for the body to assimilate and use. Glucose polymers are metabolized at a slow, steady rate that can help to sustain energy levels during oriented workouts and/or athletic events and support weight gain. Carbo Gain contains virtually no protein, fat or fiber and is a convenient source of energy for active individuals.* Look to NOW for all of your high quality sports supplement needs.
Absolutely lost here. Is it simple... is malto... is it complex... does it work for carb backloading... wth?
