So, what is la maltodextrine?

Maltodextrin is a white, odorless powder commonly used as a food additive. It is produced by breaking down starches, such as corn or wheat, into smaller molecules. Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate with a relatively high glycemic index, meaning it can rapidly raise blood sugar levels. It is often used in processed foods as a thickener, filler, or sweetener, and can also be found in sports drinks and other nutritional supplements as a source of quick energy. Despite its widespread use, maltodextrin is a controversial ingredient due to its potential effects on blood sugar and overall health.
