Does maltodextrin have the same nutrition facts as dextrose?

  1. Does maltodextrin have the same nutrition facts as dextrose?


    Like 1g maltodextrin yeilds 1g carb?


  2. yes. (maltodextrin and dextrose has no significant traces of protein/fat) Sage

  3. Dextrose is a simple carb consisting of single glucose units in solution. Itís very sweet tasting. Maltodexrin, on the other hand, is a complex carb consisting of between 3 to 20 glucose units joined together. It has very little taste. While there are some striking differences between these carb sources in terms of structure and metabolic processing, once inside the body their glycemic indices are both quite high.
