    Maltodextrin??

    Is maltodextrin the same or just as good as dextrose? or is dextrose better?

    I was reading on agave nectar and saw it was mostly fructose... is that alright? Or would a glucose supplement be more appropriate... or are the basically the same thing?

    Maltodextrine is far superior than Dextrose. Amylopectin (waxy maize) is better than both.

    My buddy already has a big tub of malto that hes willing to give me so I think I'm gonna stick with that. Do you guys have a recommendations for the protein to malto ratio in a post-workout drink?
