NOW Carbo Gain is a 100% pure maltodextrin, an easily digestible complex carbohydrate derived from corn. Maltodextrin contains "glucose polymers", linked sugar compounds that are easier for the body to assimilate and use. Glucose polymers are metabolized at a slow, steady rate that can help to sustain energy levels during endurance-oriented workouts and/or athletic events and support weight gain. Carbo Gain contains virtually no protein, fat or fiber and is a convenient source of energy for active individuals. Look to NOW for all of your high quality sports supplement needs.
Mix a 1/2 cup of Carbo Gain in each 16 oz. of water or juice. Consume before, during and after intense exercise for best results. Double this recipe if engaging in prolonged exertion of 2 hours or more.
100% pure maltodextrin from corn.

iHerb Customer Reviews
It's hard to say much more about maltodextrin. It works. I'm a cyclist and use it for energy during long workouts and for extra calories during peak season.
I gained a couple kilos with this product, vegan protein and exercise. It's really effective for bulking so if that's what you're after, get this product. I'd suggest the smaller container unless you're a pro bodybuilder, as I think taking this for too long will probably make you gain too much undesirable weight (fat!). The taste is actually pleasant, and it mixes well. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is getting into bodybuilding and for those who just need to gain weight. I've had trouble gaining weight all my life. This helped a lot!
