So, what is maltodextrina?

Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate derived from starch, commonly found in processed foods as a thickening agent, filler, or sweetener. It is created by breaking down starch through a process called hydrolysis, which results in a water-soluble white powder with a mild, sweet taste. Maltodextrin is often used in sports drinks, meal replacements, and other dietary supplements to provide a quick source of energy. Despite being derived from natural sources, maltodextrin is highly processed and has a high glycemic index, meaning it can cause blood sugar spikes in some individuals.
