Expiration Date: Sep 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

NOW Carbo Gain is 100% pure maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate derived from corn. Maltodextrin is comprised of “glucose polymers”, which are chains of glucose molecules that are easy for the body to digest and assimilate. Maltodextrin can help to sustain energy levels during endurance exercise by enhancing muscular energy stores. Furthermore, maltodextrin use during exercise can help the body cope with the biological stress produced by intense training, thereby supporting the post-workout recovery process. Carbo Gain represents a convenient way to fuel your body with the quick, but sustaining energy it needs during intense physical activity.
Mix 2/3 cup of Carbo Gain in 24 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).
Not manufactured with yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
This product is sold by weight not volume.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Allows me to make my own sports drink, since I don't like the ingredients of many sports drinks on the market.
I've been experimenting with a recipe for a workout recovery drink for an intense exercise regime. This makes a perfect component, and helps me to feel energized after and not wiped out.
