maltodextrins

maltodextrins

water-soluble, easily digestible polymers of glucose with low sweetness. As a convenient source of energy (4 kcal per gram) in combination with sugars added for flavour, they are used in sports drinks, energy bars and nutritional supplement beverages. The maltodextrins provide a solution of lower osmolality weight for weight than simple sugars such as dextrose, fructose and glucose and so can deliver more calories at the osmolality of body fluids.
