    Is honey as efficient as 50 % dextrose/50 % maltodextrine in a pwo whey drink ? Why (or why not)

    Honey can be used as a substitue for Dextrose....however it is not as effective at spiking insulin (which is what you want). Sometimes I have to use Honey PWO when I run out of Dextrose and my shipment hasn't come in, but other than that, dextrose is the way to go.

    What about maltodextrine ?
    I don't have your problem with honey versus dextrose because I'm a diabetic and I get an humalog injection after wo (that's for b'bg purpose too of course)

    I put 40g dex and 40g malto w/ 40g pro in each pwo shake. Works very well.

    OK soldier, I'm not surprised but it's expensive and I'm looking for a cheaper way. Honey is cheap (in my country it's cheaper than dextrose and maltodextrine is more expensive than whey)
