    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.

    Maltodextrin's GI is 137 , but the best part of Maltodextrin is it ilicits a slightly higher insulin response.
