Maltodextrin is not naturally occurring, it is generally manufactured from rice, corn or potato starches. It is widely found in many ‘off the shelf' weight gain formulations, meal replacements and protein powders. It is also used as a ‘filler' in capsulated products due to its ease of use and fairly neutral taste.
The main benefit of Maltodextrin is its use as a weight-gain tool, hence why you will find it as one of the main ingredients in ‘off the shelf' weight gain formulations. Although it is a high GI carbohydrate, the GI scale is only relevant to ingredients tested in isolation. When combined with other nutrients such as protein and fats, the GI of Maltodextrin reduces significantly, meaning that the insulin spike takes place over a longer period of time. In essence, the inclusion of Maltodextrin in weight gain formulas allows the important nutrients such as protein to be delivered to muscle cells gradually rather than all at once.
